Tooth colored fillings, also called white fillings, are dental fillings that restore and mimic the natural appearance of tooth structure. In addition to restoring teeth that have fractured or decayed, tooth colored fillings may also be used cosmetically to change the size, color and shape of teeth. This quality is particularly useful in closing gaps between teeth; repairing chipped teeth and making teeth appear to be more straight or even.

What are the advantages of tooth colored fillings (white fillings)?

• They closely match natural tooth color and appearance.
• They bond to tooth structure chemically and thus do not require the placement of slots, grooves or pins in healthy tooth structure to mechanically retain them.
• The bonding of white fillings to the tooth restore 85% - 95% of the original strength of the tooth.
• They completely harden in seconds instead of days required by some other materials.
• Tooth sensitivity, if any, due to composite resin use is minimal and brief.
• They may be used on front and back teeth without compromising esthetics.
• If damaged they can be repaired.

• Ceramic fillings are made of porcelain and are both durable as well as aesthetically pleasing. The material is more expensive than the other filling materials, but ceramics are tooth-colored and more resistant to staining and abrasion than composite resin. The disadvantages of using ceramic is that it is more brittle than its composite counter-part and it needs to be large enough to prevent it from breaking, so the tooth must be reduced in size to make room for the extra bulk. These ceramic restorations are typically referred to as inlays or onlays.
