COMPOSITE FILLINGS 2019-08-03T17:19:38+00:00

Strong and Healthy

Have your teeth been damaged by decay? Are your old silver or amalgam fillings making you feel self-conscious when you laugh or smile? Lexington Family Dentistry can help. We administer tooth-colored fillings to patients who are looking to restore their decayed teeth or replace their old, unsightly fillings.

A tooth colored filling (composite) is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling.

There are many types of filling materials available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. Dr. Craver can discuss the best options with you for restoring your teeth. Composite fillings, along with silver amalgam fillings, are the most widely used today. Because composite fillings are tooth colored, they can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth, and are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or the more visible areas of the teeth.

As with most dental restorations, composite fillings are not permanent and may someday have to be replaced. They are very durable, and will last many years, giving you a long lasting, beautiful smile.
