Austin Tooth Colored Filling Dentistry
Every year, people are making better and wiser decisions when it comes to their health. Advanced research, continuing education, and the vast amount of information the internet offers continues to empower people with knowledge. This is true even for medical professionals and Dr. Steinberg is no exception – and it shows, even in the latest materials he chooses to place in the missing tooth structure.
Preserving Your Smile
Everyone wants to save money and time and eliminate discomfort. Our preventive dentistry helps you do just that. We believe that maintaining a healthy, disease-free mouth will enable you to retain your natural teeth for your lifetime with a minimal amount of loss of time, cost, and discomfort.
Your commitment to our preventive recommendations for regular, prescribed continuing care appointments and necessary preventive restorations will be essential to achieving this goal.
Teeth are best left in their natural, whole condition, and our restorations and design techniques focus on preserving as much natural tooth structure as possible. Early detection – of decay, premature wear, fractures of teeth and breakdown of older fillings – allows us to perform these conservative dental procedures to preserve your natural tooth structure and strength.

Why We Choose Metal-Free Fillings
The days of using silver amalgam (mercury) filling materials have long past, however many people still have several silver fillings in their teeth. These fillings do nothing to strengthen your tooth – they are simply filling a hole. And while they may be long-lasting, worn amalgam fillings can actually weaken your tooth and increase your risk for fracture. Worse, they leak mercury toxins into your body.
Safe, Strong and Long-Lasting
Dr. Steinberg is committed to staying up-to-date on the most superior products, ensuring that the restorations he creates for your teeth are safe, strong and long lasting. That’s why he uses the finest tooth-colored, bonded resin materials for small to moderately sized restorations. When used with dentin and enamel bonding techniques, these beautiful composites restore your tooth as close to its original physical integrity as possible.
Meeting Your Needs
During his comprehensive examination and at your Continuing Care Hygiene Appointments, Dr. Steinberg will evaluate your existing restorations, and when needed, offer recommendations for restorations that are superior in safety, strength, and esthetics.
