Restore Your Smile With Dental Fillings
White Dental Fillings & Composite Resin Restoration
If you're looking for a more natural and aesthetically pleasing option for filling cavities, our team of experienced dentists offer white dental fillings as a solution. Made of composite resin, these fillings are designed to closely match the colour of your natural teeth, making them a great choice for filling cavities in visible areas of the mouth.
With a number of factors that have a role in tooth decay, most people will deal with cavities in their lifetime. While dental hygiene is crucial, even patients with the best oral hygiene routine and habits cannot prevent cavities 100% of the time. Although we place a focus on preventative care and maintenance, we understand that there will come a time when white fillings and composite resin restoration are needed to restore the function and appearance of your teeth. In addition to their cosmetic benefits, white dental fillings also have several functional advantages. They can be used to repair small chips or cracks in teeth and can be placed in a single visit to the dentist.
At Noosa Family Dental, we know that a beautiful smile can make all the difference. As such, we take pride in providing our patients with superior oral care, dental fillings, and tooth restoration that will make them feel confident and proud. We are an amalgam (silver/mercury) free practice, so you can trust us to restore your teeth to their former glory, safely and efficiently.

What You Need To Know About White Tooth Fillings
Tooth decay is one of the most common oral health issues, affecting countless people worldwide. While there are a number of methods used to restore decayed and fractured teeth, white dental fillings are a preferred technique that allows patients to enjoy a fully functional and pleasing smile.
Composite teeth restoration uses realistic-looking white fillings that blend seamlessly with the colour, shape and lustre of your natural teeth. It is an easy and non-invasive procedure that works to restore the natural structure of the tooth and can protect the teeth from crack penetration and further breakages.
Additional uses for white teeth fillings are:
- Change the shape, size and appearance of the teeth
- Cover stains
- Close gaps
- Make teeth appear straighter
- Restore breakages
- Restore areas lost due to decay.
How White Dental Fillings Can Improve Your Smile
Benefits Of Tooth Restoration with White Fillings
For those looking to restore their teeth, white tooth fillings offer a number of benefits including:
Conservation of natural tooth: Tooth-coloured fillings require less of your precious tooth to be removed. They are bonded in, allowing them to actually support and reinforce the tooth.
Natural appearance: They look great! There have been incredible advancements in resin technology over the past 20 years. We now have excellent shade selection and colour stability.
Strong: These materials, if designed correctly, can rival porcelain longevity. They are strong enough to protect back teeth and restore front teeth.
Quick: Composite resin is placed on the spot, there is no need for multiple appointments.
Repairable: Unlike porcelain, the resin can often be repaired if there is local degradation. This is a cost-effective strategy to keep your smile sparkling for years to come!

What To Expect During Your Dental Filling Procedure
At Noosa Family Dental, we know that getting a filling can be stressful. We also know that it is an extremely important procedure that needs to be done in order to keep your teeth healthy and strong. That is why we take the time to explain the entire process to our patients before we begin. This way, you will know exactly what to expect during your filling procedure.
After your consultation and initial appointment, our dentists will need to prepare the surface of the tooth. Here it is thoroughly cleaned, any decay removed and tooth preparation liquids are applied. We will then use a composite filling to restore the tooth. The filling will be moulded and built up so the hole is filled and accurately matches the shape of your tooth.
After you have the filling fitted, your mouth will most likely be numb and sensitive for the next several hours. It is recommended that you avoid hot or cold foods and drinks as well as chewing gum during this time.
