Common Uses of Tooth-Colored Fillings
Tooth-colored fillings are commonly used to treat dental cavities. After removing the decayed portion of the tooth, the composite filling material is applied in layers to fill the cavity and restore the tooth's shape and function.
Tooth-colored fillings can repair minor tooth damage, such as chips, cracks, or fractures. The composite resin material is applied and shaped to restore the tooth's natural appearance and protect it from further damage.
Teeth are worn down, or erosion can be restored with the surface with tooth-colored fillings. The composite material is applied to the affected areas, restoring the tooth's structure and protecting it from further wear.
Tooth-colored fillings can be used in cosmetic dentistry to alter the shape or size of a tooth. This technique, known as cosmetic contouring or bonding, involves applying a composite resin material to reshape the tooth, improve its appearance, or address minor cosmetic imperfections.
