Tooth Colored Composite Filling
When a tooth suffers from a small cavity (decay) it often requires a filling to restore the tooth to its natural function. This procedure requires Dr. Mullenaux to clean out the decay and then fill 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 and makes it a top priority to catch decay in the early stages to give you the opportunity to save your natural teeth.
