When considering tooth fillings, one of the options available is composite fillings that are similar in color to natural teeth. Because the composite fillings are tooth-colored, they look more natural and are less noticeable compared to other types of fillings. Composite fillings are made of composite resin, which we can match to your natural tooth color for an aesthetic effect; because of this, composite fillings in Austin, Texas are sometimes called tooth-colored or white fillings. To restore the decayed tooth, Dr. Pevow and Dr. Robbins will first remove the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth. The tooth is then cleaned and filled with composite resin. After we sculpt the resin to fit your tooth, it is hardened with a special light. We will ensure that your composite dental filling is comfortable and effectively restores your smile.
Another benefit of tooth-colored fillings is that they are compatible with sealants, allowing your dentists at Anderson Lane Dental to perform both procedures in a single sitting. Composites also bond to tooth structures, allowing for more conservative preparation of teeth, and in many cases fillings can be repaired by the addition of more composite material.
