Tooth Coloured Fillings in Adelaide, SA

Natural looking tooth-coloured fillings, or ‘white’ fillings, are also known as composite fillings and are a more modern dental material which can bond to tooth material and match the colour, texture and shape of your teeth.

White tooth-coloured fillings can be used to restore decayed teeth, replace metal or amalgam fillings and repair chipped teeth while ensuring the aesthetics of your smile remains at its best.

If you’ve had fillings in the past, chances are you may be a little self conscious of the fact that they stand out in your mouth and don’t always blend in with your other teeth. Luckily, tooth coloured (or white) fillings are becoming increasingly common and can help to bring back your brilliant smile.

What is a tooth coloured filling?

A filling is a device that replaces part of a tooth that has been lost due to decay or damage. Tooth coloured fillings are also known as ‘white’ fillings or ‘composite’ fillings. They are a more modern dental material made mainly from glass particles, synthetic resin and a setting ingredient.

Fillings are inserted into the mouth once the affected area has been cleared of decay and thoroughly washed and dried. They are smoothed off before the dentist holds a bright light to them in order to set the filling. Once this is completed, the filling will be trimmed off and polished.

How do tooth coloured fillings work?

Tooth coloured fillings bond to tooth material and naturally match the colour, shape and texture of your teeth. This means they’ll instantly look natural and you won’t be self conscious when you laugh, smile or talk.

When are tooth coloured fillings used?

Due to advances in dentistry, tooth coloured fillings are used more and more. They are ideal for restoring decayed teeth or those that have chipped and appear unsightly when you talk or smile. Many people are now opting to have metal and amalgam fillings replaced with tooth coloured fillings.

Should I change my existing fillings to tooth coloured fillings?

If your existing fillings need replacing, you can opt to have them changed for tooth coloured fillings. Unless there is an issue with your existing filling, many dentists will recommend waiting until there is a need to change them instead of simply doing it for cosmetic reasons.

Which is better? Silver amalgam or Tooth coloured fillings?

Your dentist will be able to advise you on the best option for you. In the past, tooth coloured fillings have been viewed as less durable than silver amalgam versions however there have been extensive advances in dentistry with many new materials now available. You should always consider the positioning of the filling within your mouth as well as individual specifics such as your bite.

My first time seeing Quynh. She was attentive, professional and I felt that she genuinely cares about her patients. I will do my regular check-up with her from now on. The clinic was also clean and organized. Thanks a lot!

Lovely colourful clinic and friendly staff. The dentist took the time to explain the details of the treatment I needed and made sure I was aware of all my options before I decided on a plan. Really helpful! I can’t recommend them highly enough! 🙂
