Tooth Coloured Fillings

A safer and natural looking filling alternative

What are tooth coloured fillings?

Tooth coloured fillings, also known as Composite Resin, are a cosmetic alternative to the old style silver-mercury fillings. They are made of a plastic material mixed with small glass particles and are tooth coloured, rather than silver. They are natural looking and are suitable for repairing cavities in any teeth.

What are the benefits of tooth coloured fillings?

Tooth coloured fillings are natural looking, stronger, and safer than old style silver fillings.

  • Natural looking
  • Stronger because it bonds better to the surrounding tooth
  • Safer than old style silver, amalgam, mercury fillings
  • Suitable for even the smallest of holes

Today’s Dentistry in Brisbane recommends tooth coloured fillings

After removing the decay our dentists will place layers of composite fillings into the area to be repaired. Each layer of the composite material is hardened by exposure to a special light. The advantage of this is that the fillings are ready to bite on straight away.

If we have removed any old style silver, amalgam, mercury fillings, Today’s Dentistry disposes of these responsibly and safely.
