Tooth-colored fillings have several names that are commonly known; bonding, resin filling, composite filling, and several others. These restorations are used to restore, repair, and protect teeth, are virtually invisible, mimic natural tooth structure in both form, function and esthetics, and are bonded to the teeth.
These restorations are directly placed in the mouth in one visit. Resin restorations are typically used when conservative tooth removal is necessary due to cavities. It is applied in several steps and with the use of a light it is immediately set and hardened. There is virtually no down time after the procedure.
