Tooth-Colored Fillings in Boca Raton, FL
What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?
Tooth-colored fillings, also called composite fillings or white fillings, are a type of dental restoration used to repair cavities and other minor damage to the teeth. Tooth-colored fillings can also be used to change the shape of the teeth or to close gaps between them.
Compared to other dental restorations, such as amalgam, gold fillings, and crowns, composite fillings are less invasive and can be completed in a single visit. These fillings are the upgraded version of traditional silver fillings.

Procedure for Placing a Tooth-Colored Filling
The procedure for placing a composite filling is relatively simple and straightforward. First, our dentist will use a drill to remove any tooth decay from the tooth enamel. Once the decay has been removed, we will then prepare the area by cleaning it and shaping it to fit the composite resin. The tooth-colored material is then applied to the prepared area and hardened with a special light. Finally, we will polish the filling to give it a natural look and feel.
If you experience any pain or sensitivity after the procedure, it is essential to contact our office as soon as possible.
Aftercare Instructions for Composite Resin Fillings
- Brush and floss your teeth regularly, as this will help to prevent plaque buildup around the filling.
- Avoid eating hard or sticky foods, as these can cause damage to the filling material.
- Visit our office for regular dental check-ups and cleanings to ensure that your filling is in good condition.
