Cosmetic Tooth Colored Fillings

Cosmetic Tooth Colored Fillings are a popular and effective treatment option for restoring decayed, cracked, or chipped teeth while maintaining a natural-looking smile. The advantage of Cosmetic Tooth Colored Fillings is that they can provide greater beauty in a single visit. Based on the extent and type of tooth decay, a dentist may recommend a tooth-colored composite restoration. However, if the decay is more extensive and involves the loss of two or more cusps of the tooth, the dentist may recommend inlays or onlays as a more suitable treatment option.


Various materials are used to create fillings, such as composite, Fluoride (white) fillings, gold, or silver amalgam. Fillings are used to treat tooth decay and restore damaged teeth. They are thought to be an extremely effective treatment choice. Cosmetic fillings are being used by dentists for both aesthetic and oral health reasons. Dentists put these fillings into the tooth to prevent decay from spreading and to heal any damage. The composite tooth-colored filling is a synthetic material made of a combination of glass and acrylic resin. It is white, that can be matched to the color of your teeth. They are durable, long-lasting, and offer excellent protection for your teeth. Composite fillings are also bonded directly to the tooth, which helps to strengthen it and prevents further damage from occurring. Fluoride (white) fillings are a common type of dental filling made from a porcelain, composite and glass-ionomer cement resin material that matches the color of natural teeth. Gold fillings are constructed of gold and other metals. They are extremely powerful and long-lasting, but they are also highly expensive. Silver amalgam is a traditional filling material that has been used for many years in dentistry. It is made up of a combination of several metals including mercury, tin, and copper. Gold or silver amalgam fillings can be noticeable when you smile or speak, while composite fillings are virtually invisible. 


The treatment process of composite, white fillings, gold, and silver amalgam is the same because a small hole is drilled in the affected tooth to allow for the insertion of fillings. The main difference between composite, white fillings and gold or silver amalgam fillings is that composite and white filling receive a final polish to ensure the tooth is clean and smooth, while gold or silver amalgam fillings are more noticeable due to their metallic color.

Digital X-rays

Digital X-rays are a modern imaging technology that uses digital sensors to capture detailed images of the teeth and jaw. They are faster and more comfortable than traditional X-rays and expose patients to less radiation.


Composite Resin

Composite resin is a tooth-colored filling material used to repair decayed, chipped, or fractured teeth. It is made up of a mixture of plastic and glass particles and is bonded to the tooth surface using an adhesive.


Curing Light

A curing light is a specialized machine that is used to harden the composite resin. It emits a high-intensity light that activates the chemical reaction in the resin, causing it to harden and bond to the tooth.


Intraoral Camera

An intraoral camera is a small camera that is used to capture images of the teeth and gums. It helps the dentist to accurately diagnose and treat dental problems, including tooth-colored fillings.

DTX Studio Implant

Dental Drill

A dental drill is a handheld device that is used to remove decayed or damaged tooth structure before the filling is placed. Modern dental drills are often equipped with water cooling systems that help to reduce discomfort and minimize heat generation during the procedure.

Our Treatment Process

Examination and Diagnosis

dentist will examine your tooth and determine if a filling is necessary. They may also take x-rays to evaluate the extent of the decay.


The dentist will numb the area around the tooth using a local anesthetic to ensure that you don’t feel any pain during the procedure.

Removal of Decay

The dentist will use a drill or laser to remove the decayed portion of the tooth, leaving behind a clean, healthy cavity.


The dentist will etch the surface of the cavity with an acid solution to create a rough surface that will allow the filling material to bond securely.


The dentist will apply the tooth-colored filling material, which is usually a composite resin or porcelain material. They will carefully shape and polish the filling to match the natural contour of your tooth.


The filling material is hardened using a special light or laser, which activates a chemical reaction that makes the material hard and durable.
