Tooth coloured fillings are fillings that replaces part of a tooth that has been lost because of decay or accidental damage. All fillings are tooth coloured, carefully selected to match the original shade and shape of the tooth. Tooth coloured fillings are used to fill in cavities and protect your tooth from getting infected. Tooth coloured fillings are made from either a composite or glass ionomer and are secured onto the tooth with either a chemical reaction or resin. Restoration is a term used in dentistry to describe restoring the function of the tooth by replacing missing or damaged tooth structure. Restorations are classified as either direct or indirect. Direct restorations are made directly inside the mouth of the patient, while indirect restorations are made outside of the patient's mouth and then placed inside. With a direct restoration, the restoration is fabricated or made directly inside the mouth. Examples of direct restoration would include a composite filling, amalgam filling, or stainless steel crown. Silver amalgam is one of the more widely known filling material. Amalgam is made up of a mixture of silver, tin, zinc, copper, and mercury, with mercury being nearly 50% of the mixture. Composite fillings are very popular because of the tooth-colored appearance that can be matched to the shade of your existing teeth. Composite fillings are also called plastic or white fillings. Getting this kind of filling depends on where the tooth is in your mouth. We bite down hard on our back teeth (molars), so a plastic filling may not be a good choice. To place this filling, your dentist cleans all decay from the tooth and puts a glue (or bonding material) on the inside of the hole. Composite resin is put into the hole in thin layers. Each layer gets hard with the help of a special light that your dentist holds over the tooth. When the last layer of the filling is hard, your dentist shapes the filling so it looks and feels natural.
