Tooth colour restoration

Cavities can cause significant damage to teeth if ignored. Tooth colour restorations, also known as tooth coloured fillings and resin fillings are a dental restoration used to address cavities and restore damaged teeth.

Gone are the days of the old amalgam, metallic fillings, tooth coloured fillings are a long lasting, natural looking alternative that will restore your damaged teeth back to their full function! Tooth coloured restorations are also used to help repair cracked, broken or worn down teeth. This can be caused by trauma, nail biting, or tooth grinding, as but a few examples.

Advantages of Tooth Coloured Fillings


Do tooth coloured restorations hurt?

While you may feel some discomfort, we’ll administer a local anaesthetic which will numb the area. You may experience some discomfort and sensitivity after the procedure, this will go away and can be managed with pain relief medication.

How long will the dental restoration last?
Composite resin fillings can last for 10 years or longer. You can help preserve your fillings by:

  • – avoiding food and drinks that stain teeth
  • – having regular dental check ups
  • – following good oral hygiene

What should I expect after a restoration?

Initially, you will experience numbness in the restored area for about 2 to 3 hours. During this time, take care not to bite or chew on the numb tissue. You may experience sensitivity after the procedure, this should resolve within a few weeks. In not, you should contact your dentist For more information on tooth coloured restorations contact us on (07) 4723 0524 or book an appointment online.
