What are Tooth Colored Fillings?

Tooth colored fillings, also known as composite fillings, are a modern and aesthetically pleasing dental solution offered by Dr. Bhumika Patel at Rocky Hills Dentistry in Rocky Hill, New Jersey. These fillings are made from a mixture of fine glass and plastic particles, which can be closely matched to the natural color of your teeth. This allows for a seamless blend with the surrounding teeth, making them virtually invisible to the naked eye.


Dr. Patel uses tooth colored fillings to repair teeth that have been affected by cavities, cracks, or minor fractures. Unlike traditional silver amalgam fillings, composite fillings provide a more natural look and can be used on both front and back teeth without compromising durability. They are particularly beneficial for patients who are concerned about the appearance of their smile and prefer a more cosmetic approach to dental restoration.

How Rocky Hill Family Dentistry can help

Tooth colored fillings offer numerous benefits for patients at Rocky Hills Dentistry. Here are some key advantages:


Aesthetic Appeal: One of the most significant benefits of tooth colored fillings is their ability to match the natural color of your teeth. This makes them an ideal choice for those who want their dental restorations to be discreet and aesthetically pleasing. The composite material blends seamlessly with your existing teeth, enhancing your smile without any visible signs of dental work.


Strength and Durability: Despite their cosmetic advantages, tooth colored fillings are also strong and durable. They can withstand the forces of chewing and biting, making them suitable for both front and back teeth. With proper care, these fillings can last for many years, providing a long-lasting solution to dental decay and damage.


Minimal Invasion: Tooth colored fillings require less removal of healthy tooth structure compared to traditional amalgam fillings. This means that more of your natural tooth is preserved, which is better for the overall health and strength of the tooth. Dr. Patel’s conservative approach ensures that your teeth remain as intact as possible.


Mercury-Free: Unlike silver amalgam fillings, tooth colored fillings do not contain mercury. This is a significant benefit for patients who are concerned about the potential health risks associated with mercury exposure. Composite fillings are a safer, non-toxic alternative that still offers effective results.


Versatility: Tooth colored fillings are versatile and can be used to address a variety of dental issues, including cavities, chips, and cracks. They can also be used to replace old metal fillings, providing a more attractive and cohesive appearance.


Improved Confidence: The natural look of tooth colored fillings can significantly boost your confidence. Knowing that your dental restorations are virtually invisible allows you to smile, talk, and eat with greater assurance. This improvement in self-esteem can have a positive impact on your overall quality of life.
