A tooth coloured restoration is also called tooth coloured filling. This is because it is a composite resin that is coloured and shaped to blend in with your tooth while restoring it from decay.

Tooth coloured restorations are more popular these days, over-shadowing the traditional silver amalgam filling that were once used by your parents and grandparents. And for good reason. Here are the top 4 reasons why a tooth coloured restoration is a great option.

  1. Flawless look. Tooth coloured restorations can be made to look exactly like your teeth. It’s easy to make it match your tooth as it fills your tooth and restores it.
  2. Strong bonds. They also bond to the tooth chemically, unlike silver amalgam fillings. This provides robust support to the tooth structure. You can be assured that a tooth filled with composite resin will have strong biting and chewing power with less risk of being damaged again.

  1. Versatile repair. Whether it’s for broken, chipped, cracked, worn or decayed teeth, tooth coloured restorations can make your tooth look natural—and even good as new.
  2. Keep most of your teeth. Silver amalgam or metal fillings require that you drill off more of your tooth, even if those parts are healthy. This is because your dentist needs to create notches or ledges on your teeth to attach the metal filling. With composite fillings, however, you don’t need to do that because your tooth chemically bonds to the composite filling and makes tooth even stronger.
