Fillings

Tooth Coloured Fillings

Tooth Coloured fillings in the modern world are an amazing blend of aesthetics, strength and compatibility with the teeth. They are made of a blend of highly technical plastic materials mixed with glass particles.  They bond to tooth structure, meaning that less tooth is removed than superseded filling materials and can be used for large and small fillings on front and back teeth.

Ceramic Fillings using 3D computer technology

Ceramic fillings may also be called Inlays or Onlays.  They can be used to repair moderately damaged back teeth using not only very strong, but very aesthetic ceramic that is made in a lab here in Brisbane.  The dentist will prepare the tooth and take an impression, or mould, of this preparation.  This is sent to the laboratory where they design and construct a restoration that has a perfect fit and perfect bite, for your dentist to cement or bond into your tooth.  If suitable, this can preserve tooth structure when compared to a crown, but also provide superior strength.
