Forget what you think you know about fillings right now. There’s no reason to feel down or annoyed when you hear you need one! Today’s advanced dentistry and materials make fillings a breeze for you and your restorative dentistry in Lexington. Dr. Hollingsworth uses tooth-colored fillings as a safer, more conservative alternative to amalgam or metal restorations.
Your custom tooth-colored filling is made of a blend of non-toxic plastic resins and silica. You might also hear tooth-colored fillings referred to as “composite.” What’s interesting about all of the components that make up your filling is that they truly mimic your natural teeth. When you smile, no one will see a mouth full of metal. They just see naturally beautiful, cavity-free teeth. These types of restorations are generally recommended for small to moderate-size decay in a tooth. These filings are durable and can usually be completed in one comfortable visit to our Lexington dental office.
