Even if patients eat healthy foods, practice good oral hygiene, and receive routine dental care, tooth decay is sometimes unavoidable. When decayed areas are small, they can be treated with a minor, minimally invasive restoration called a filling. This treatment will fill the decayed area of a tooth while protecting it from future damage. If those in need of a filling desire a discreet restoration, they can choose a tooth-colored material called composite resin. This material is made from durable glass and plastic and can be tinted to match the exact coloring of biological teeth. A composite resin filling will not affect the aesthetics of a smile but will provide effective protection against future damage to a tooth.
