Teeth are usually filled with a material called composite resin, which is designed to look like your natural teeth. Composite resin takes a little longer than gold, porcelain, or silver amalgam, though most people still prefer it for natural-looking teeth. It takes more than one layer, and a special light is used to harden the area around the filling.

Once your tooth is all filled in, we will smooth over the rough edges and polish it so it looks natural.
