Default Fix tear-out on roundover?

I was routing roundovers on a piece of hickory I had profiled to be a fence for a crosscut sled. When I examined my cut, I had torn some pretty deep pits out of part of the hickory that sloped through the end grain.

I didn't want to cut the profile down and start over, so I used epoxy and wood flour to plug the pits. After it cured, I trimmed the epoxy with a chisel, then re-routed the roundover. It is now smooth, but the patches are pretty obvious because of the color difference.

Anybody got a better way to deal with tearouts?
