Natural-Looking Dental Fillings in Austin TX

Cavities are one of the most common reasons we use dental fillings at our Austin TX practice, but they can also be used for chips, cracks, broken teeth, worn teeth or to repair a tooth after root canal treatment. Some patients also choose to have their old metal fillings replaced with tooth-colored fillings that blend in with their smiles.  

When a tooth becomes damaged, it allows bacteria to make its way to the pulp chamber. This can lead to harmful infections and the need for root canal therapy. Dental fillings essentially seal off and support the tooth, preventing further damage. If a large filling is needed, a crown may also be recommended to give more support to the remaining tooth structure. 

Dental fillings can be made using several different types of materials; I use‌ tooth-colored fillings for a more aesthetically pleasing smile. Unlike traditional metal fillings, tooth-colored fillings blend perfectly with your natural teeth. They’re very safe, and durable, and can usually be placed in a single office visit. Another benefit of tooth-colored fillings is that they tend to be more resistant to temperature changes, so they can be a more comfortable option than other materials, such as silver amalgam.
