Getting a dental filling is a great way to restore a tooth that has suffered from tooth decay – however, it shouldn’t spoil your smile with metal fixings.
At Sydney’s Rainbow Dental, we’ve made the move to exclusively use natural tooth-coloured fillings for a safe, effective and seamless filling that will keep your smile white and bright. They can even be used to cosmetically enhance your front teeth as well as being a great choice for restorative dental treatments.
What is a tooth coloured filling?
Otherwise known as white fillings or composite fillings, they are made up of a mix of resin, glass and setting agents. The colours of all these components resemble the natural tooth colour, allowing the filling to blend easily with your teeth.
This type of filling isn’t limited to filling holes in your teeth. We can also use the material for cosmetic purposes, such as reshaping unsightly teeth, filling tooth chips or even whitening up a stained tooth. You can regain full functionality of a tooth without anyone knowing the difference.
Getting tooth coloured fillings
Our dentist will prepare the tooth, removing the decay as needed.
The composite filling will be added in layers to the tooth, with the composite agents being activated by our UV lights.
Once the hole is filled and hard, the filling is shaped and polished to the desired shape.
How much do tooth coloured fillings cost?
While white fillings do cost more than their traditional counterparts, we believe the benefits far outweigh the minor price difference.
With no dangerous mercury in your mouth, less sensitivity, fast bonding and of course, a natural looking smile, you’ll be happy you’ve made the choice to have a natural tooth coloured filling. We’ll be able to give you an accurate quote during the consultation.
As one of Sydney’s most reputable dentistry practices, you can be assured of a professional and quality dental filling every time.
