The teeth enamel are considered the hardest part of the human body, but there are still some factors that can harm and damage the teeth. Unlike the bone that can perform self-repair, the teeth would need dental procedures for it to be saved from extractions. Teeth are not tools that are used to open plastic packets or bottles; they should not be used for chewing hard objects like nails or pencils.
It deserves the same care that is being applied to any parts of the body to ensure its longevity and proper function. Brushing, flossing, and rinsing is not something that should be dismissed; it should always be a part of a regular practice. It is the first line of defense that prevents the development of any dental complications that can harm the teeth and oral structures. Unfortunately, despite the practice of proper dental hygiene, factors such as injuries or trauma can cause damage to the teeth. If left untreated it can result in severe complications and even tooth loss.

Tooth-Colored Fillings are the mixture of composite resin and silica fillers, as its name implies, it closely resembles the color of healthy teeth to provide the natural-looking appearance to the treated tooth. If a tooth has sustained damage from decay, injury, or trauma it is best to have the portion treated as soon as possible to prevent it from progressing further or causing severe complications.
The process of Placing Tooth-Colored Fillings
- Depending on the preference or needs of patients sedation can be used by the dentist to ensure their comfort during the whole procedure.
- The damaged portions of the teeth are removed the same as the debris and bacterias; this is to ensure that there will be no underlying issues once the fillings are placed.
- Once the teeth are cleaned and dried, the tooth-colored filling is placed carefully in layers. Every layer applied is cured by a special light which hastens the hardening process of the material used.
- After completing the filling process, the dentist would check to make sure that it would not get in the way of the proper occlusions of the patient. Necessary adjustments can be performed by the dentist to guarantee function, comfort, and appearance.
