Tooth Coloured Fillings
Unlike amalgam fillings, porcelain restorations are not toxic, and completely safe for your body and retain the integrity of your tooth structure. Providing patients with a whiter, brighter more attractive smile, porcelain restorations look and feel like natural teeth. Historically, amalgam fillings were the most popular type of dental filling. Amalgam fillings are made up of fifty percent Mercury, a highly toxic substance. Over time it has also become apparent that amalgam fillings are responsible for the onset of cracks in teeth.

Tooth coloured fillings use resin to fill your tooth as an alternative to silver-mercury fillings which have a number of oral and general health risks. These tooth coloured fillings blend in with the rest of your mouth making them inconspicuous.
Tooth coloured fillings are made from plastic and small glass particles that look like a natural tooth. Visit your trusted Brisbane dentist, Malouf Dental, to talk about getting your dental fillings.
