Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Tooth-Colored Resin Fillings

How can we help you?

Information and education are the keys to good health. Just as we believe in continuing education for ourselves, we recommend that our patients learn about their dental health. We are always happy to discuss your care with you, and we will never perform a procedure until you’ve been informed about the procedure we are treating and have given us your approval to proceed.

If you have a question, take a look at this selection of questions we are often asked about our practice, the services we offer, and dentistry in general. If your question isn’t answered here or if you need more information, you are always welcome to give us a call or send us an email using our convenient online form.

Tooth-Colored Resin Fillings

  • They are the same color as your tooth, so nobody can tell you have fillings at all.
  • They bond to your tooth from the inside, actually making it stronger.
  • They don't expand and contract like metal fillings can.
  • They don't contain any mercury.

In addition to filling cavities, composite resin fillings can also be used to make repairs to teeth including fixing teeth damaged by erosion and filling in chips.
