We do offer tooth-colored fillings here, which are called composites. For somebody that has tooth decay, we can remove the cavity, or the tooth decay, and replace it with a tooth-colored filling, which replaces the loss to structure as well as increasing the strength, because it's bonded to the natural tooth structure, making it look natural, both for front teeth as well as back teeth. Tooth-colored fillings are composites, will restore the tooth back to its normal shape and size, making it look natural and even make it stronger than it was before because it bonds to the natural tooth structure around it.

Choose a Filling That Looks Great & Protects Your Tooth
If it’s been a while since you’ve had a tooth filled, you may not be aware that the days of unattractive silver fillings have passed. No longer are they the only choice you have for your tooth repair.
In fact, the only fillings we offer are tooth-colored composite resin fillings made from tiny particles of glass and plastic. Dr. Roessler can select just the right shade for your filling so that it blends in seamlessly with the rest of your smile. No one will notice that you’ve had a tooth filled when you laugh, yawn, or eat.
Plus, when compared to traditional amalgam (silver) fillings, placing composite fillings requires less removal of healthy tooth structure. This means more of your tooth stays intact, and you’ll have less chance of problems down the road.
To place your new tooth filling, Dr. Roessler will gently prepare the area, removing any decay and smoothing the part of the tooth where your filling will go. Next, he will apply the composite resin and carefully sculpt it into place.
He’ll then cure the filling with a special light to instantly harden it. Finally, he’ll make any adjustments needed to ensure the composite looks perfect and your bite is just right.
