Tooth-Coloured Restorations Melbourne CBD

Rejuvenate your smile with tooth-coloured restorations

In the past, tooth fillings were primarily done using either Silver or Mercury.

Due to the colour of Silver and Mercury, these dental fillings did not match the colour of natural teeth.

What is a Tooth-Coloured Restoration?

The continual development in cosmetic dentistry treatments has made tooth-coloured restorations an effective and aesthetic option.

Your dentist at Art De Dente can match your Crowns, Veneers, Inlays and Onlays to the exact colour, texture and translucency of your natural teeth.

This way, they will look and feel as natural and blend in with your natural teeth.

The advantages of getting tooth-coloured restorations are not just aesthetic but also functional.

Your Melbourne CBD dentist will use ‘resin onlays’ which are bonded to your teeth in a perfect fit.

This type of restoration is usually used when there is a significant loss in the existing tooth structure. The resin used contains fluoride, which will help prevent decay, leaving you with healthier teeth.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made tooth-coloured porcelain shells that bond to the front surfaces of your teeth.

They are great for treating chipped, discoloured or misshaped teeth, especially the front teeth.


Porcelain crowns cover a tooth that is severely decayed, broken or brittle.

They may be used for the aesthetic purpose to improve the tooth shape, size or strength.

It is a virtually painless procedure that can dramatically improve the look of your smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I have my old silver filling replaced by a tooth-coloured restoration?
Yes, we can replace your old silver fillings with tooth coloured Onlays. This process will require more than one visit.

During your first visit, your Melbourne CBD dentist will remove the old Silver filling and clean any form of decay. An impression of your teeth is made.

Using this impression, a model of your teeth is built. A special resin is then placed in your teeth model. This resin is made to match the colour and translucency of your natural teeth.

During the fitting procedure, your Melbourne CBD dentist will place a conditioning gel on your tooth. This is done to prepare it for the new Onlay. Special bonding cement is then placed on the tooth.

Finally, a high-intensity light is used to bond the resin to the tooth. Once the procedure is complete, the tooth is polished, leaving you with a perfectly natural smile.

What are the benefits of tooth-coloured restorations?
The most obvious benefit of tooth-coloured restorations is that these fillings match the colour of your teeth, hiding them from yourself and others.

These fillings are made to look and feel like your natural tooth, meaning you can eat, drink, and talk without worrying anyone will see silver in your mouth.

When compared with silver fillings, tooth-coloured restorations have proven to be more wear and tear resistant and therefore can last longer than traditional fillings.

This type of restoration is bonded chemically to the tooth and is better able to prevent future decay and damage.
