- Resemble the color of your teeth: One particular feature that makes composite fillings better than metal fillings is that they match the exact shade of your teeth. They blend into the color of your teeth, giving a very natural appearance.

What Is The Process of Getting Composite Fillings?
When you visit our Killeen, TX clinic to get tooth-colored fillings, we will first evaluate your dental needs by performing a basic exam. Our team may also take digital x-rays to visualize the extent of the damage. The process begins by injecting a local anesthetic at the site of the defective tooth.
After that area is numb, we will use a device to debride the tooth and remove the decayed portion. Once this step is complete, we will prep the area for placing a composite filling. Our dentists will ensure that the filling matches the natural shade of your teeth. We will place the filling in the cavity and mold it to fit the contours of your teeth. It is hardened using a curing light and polished afterward for a smooth finish.
