An overview of the many options Lynchburg Family Dentistry provides for fillings

Dental Fillings

There are a variety of materials that we can use to fill your teeth where tooth structure has been lost due to decay or wear.  We can also use aesthetic materials to change the shape and color of your teeth, often in one visit.

We use a variety of tooth-colored materials and can also use metals such as alloys and gold to restore your teeth where indicated.  We will go over filling options with you so you can make an informed decision.

We have recently started using Activa, a bioactive tooth filling material that exchanges calcium ions with your tooth structure.  In a recent study, it has shown to be 2-3 times stronger than traditional resin composite filling materials and contains no Bisphenol A, no BPA derivatives, and no Bis-GMA.

Whatever material we use on your tooth, we aim to provide a high-quality restoration that is placed carefully so it will last you many years.

If you have any questions on any of the filling materials we use, please get in touch with us.
