Tooth Colored Composite Filling
A composite filling is a material used to fill a tooth that has decay. When a tooth suffers from a small cavity (decay), it often requires a filling to restore the tooth to its natural function. Dr. Mullenaux cleans out the decay and then fills that space with a tooth colored filling material called composite.
Did you know if cavities are not caught at the early stages it can increase in size and cause issues with the tooth or surrounding tissues? Dr. Mullenaux and his team are always thorough when reviewing x-rays. They make it a top priority to catch decay in the early stages in order to save your natural teeth. Preventative dentistry and hygiene cleaning are extremely important to catch cavities early and prevent further damage.
