Tooth Collored Fillings in Austin, TX
A filling is the process of removing the decayed portion of the tooth and filling it with a dental material.
A composite filling is also known as a tooth colored filling and is used typically to treat small to medium cavities. Composite can be closely matched to your natural tooth color so it is not obvious that you have a filling present. Composite fillings are a great option for treating front teeth because of their ability to blend with the natural tooth.
If you do find that you have decay and the tooth is a candidate for a filling, Dr. Goehring will discuss your treatment options (composite vs. metal). There are times when an amalgam(metal) filling would be best for the longevity of the tooth and these are discussions that you and Dr. Goehring can have in the office before your procedure.
