Tooth-colored Filling/Restoration

Tooth-colored Filling/Restoration

Modern dental options present a variety of excellent dental work as opposed to the traditional dental amalgam of different metals. The advanced fillings that mimic the natural human teeth (composite-resins and porcelain) are excellent dental techniques that are safe and present a natural appearance. These fillings, repair the damaged teeth and replace unattractive metallic fillings.


The observable tooth is mainly made of two parts, which are the enamel and the dentin. The enamel is the outermost part of the tooth and it contains no living tissue. The inner part is the dentin, which is more porous and similar to a bone.

The dentin consists of microscopic tubes of collagen with calcium crystal deposits and it is a living and very sensitive. Since the dentin is very sensitive, it transports any feeling to the innermost part of the tooth, which consists of the pulp, connective tissue, and the nerves. It is only dental composite resins that can mimic the entire tooth and are common in non-amalgam fillings.


Amalgams or metallic fillings couldn’t provide efficacy when it came to tooth restoration. They only rested on the tooth, but with technology advancement, experts have managed to develop bonding fillings that can create a stronger, comfortable and above all a more protected connection.

A good bond between the resin materials (enamel and the dentin) can facilitate successful teeth rebuilding and function as the natural teeth.


Modern dentistry uses nature as a guide to avoid the past infectiveness of the fillings that could contribute to further tooth decay. The bonding materials today mimic the whole functions of the natural teeth, making Tooth Colored Fillings in India as one of the greatest options for tooth rebuilding.

The different options, include;

  • Immediate Dentin Sealing
  • This uses a resin coating to seal and protect the dentin surface from bacteria, sensitivity, and cavities. It creates a hybrid layer to which composite resin can be bonded for shaping into a tooth structure.

  • Dentin Build-up
  • This involves the layering of the resin to eliminate spaces and form the original shape of the tooth, but metal or amalgam fillings require undercuts to put in place which can lead to the weakening of the tooth.

  • Methods of Tooth Repairing with Fillings (Restorative Materials)
  • The tooth repairing methods have various advantages and disadvantages, but the cosmetic dentist can help you select the proper tooth filling to provide efficacy and at the best rate. The Tooth Colored Fillings Cost in India is believed to range from Rs.700 to Rs.12, 000, but many considerations are taken into account.

  • Direct Fillings
  • These types of fillings only require a few restorative materials placed into the cavities. The entire procedure can be performed in a single day and the dentist will apply the resin in the layers which are instantly set using specific light.

  • Semi-Direct Fillings
  • These are similar to direct fillings, but they mostly used to repair larger areas. In this procedure, the restoration is removed and set outside the mouth and when the filling is ready, it is bonded to the tooth.

    Computer Assisted Design or Computer Assisted Milling can be used to create the inlays which result in more durable porcelain restoration.

  • Indirect Fillings
  • In case complex restoration is required, indirect fillings are used. It is quite a lengthy procedure since it may involve removing the affected teeth or just crowing them with the fillings.
