A tooth coloured filling is a filling designed to match your natural tooth shade to give it a more aesthetic appearance. Such fillings are done At Therapeuo by our Restorative dentist. These are of two types of such fillings- glass ionomer cement and composite resin.

Glass ionomer is made of a polyacrylic acid and a specific type of glass (silicate) material. This material is most commonly used for fillings below the gum line and for fillings in young children (drilling is still required). Glass ionomers release fluoride, which can help protect the tooth from further decay. However, this material is weaker than composite resin and is more susceptible to wear and prone to fracture.

Composite resins, or tooth-coloured fillings, provide good durability and resistance to fracture in fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. They can be used on either front or back teeth. They are a good choice for people who prefer that their fillings look more natural. 

It generally takes longer to place a composite filling than it does for a metal filling. The process for placing a composite restoration is more complex and requires the placement of a rubber dam. However, lesser amount of tooth structure is removed when composite restorations are done and the fillings are more natural.

Tooth-coloured fillings are now used more often than silver or gold fillings, due to cosmetics. In a society focused on a white, bright smile we at Therapeuo want your fillings that blend with the natural colour of your teeth and function beautifully with the rest of your teeth.

Ultimately, the best dental filling is no dental filling. Prevention is the best medicine. You can dramatically decrease your risk of cavities and other dental diseases simply by:

· brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste

· flossing daily

· eating a balanced diet

· fluoride varnish application

· visiting the dentist regularly.
