Tooth-Colored Fillings

At the office of Dr. Rosales in Dallas, we provide tooth-colored fillings to repair teeth with decay and replace the affected structure. Fillings are named as such because the composite resin (tooth-colored) material is used to fill the hole left by decay. When they are caught in the earliest stages, cavities are painlessly and easily treated. When left untreated, however, cavities and decay can lead to tooth pain and/or infection. This could require either a root canal or an extraction to repair.
