Tooth Coloured Fillings
Address decayed or broken teeth seamlessly
At Family Dental Excellence in Upper Mt Gravatt our team of dedicated dental professionals can correct your decayed or broken tooth with discreet tooth coloured fillings. These subtle fillings can offer our patients a virtually invisible alternative to dark amalgam fillings. Of course, you can also request to have our team remove any specific existing amalgam fillings and replace them with tooth coloured restorations, if this is your personal preference.
Benefit from this discreet alternative
There are a number of benefits to receiving tooth coloured restorations, including:
- Discreet: Tooth coloured restorations can be matched to the colour of your teeth, blending in with your smile.
- Mercury free: Tooth coloured fillings are 100% mercury free, unlike amalgam filling.
- Retain shape and structure: Tooth coloured fillings do not shrink or expand to the extent of amalgam fillings, as they are exposed to hot and cold foods and liquids.
- Tooth friendly: Tooth coloured fillings adhere to the surrounding tooth structure and help to support it, thus reducing the risk of cracks forming.
A swift procedure to get you back to your day-to-day life
Removing your amalgam fillings for replacement or simply just receiving a tooth coloured filling can be a swift and relatively simple procedure.
If the most appropriate treatment for your decayed or broken tooth is a tooth coloured restoration, then we can begin by cleaning and preparing your tooth. Our dental team will then place the filling in layers and bond it to your tooth with the use of a specialised light. Once your filling has been attached to your tooth, we will polish and shape it to fit into your bite and match your tooth’s shape.
At Family Dental Excellence you have the choice to remove your amalgam fillings and replace them with tooth coloured restorations.
