Edmond Tooth-Colored Fillings
Helping to Reduce Your Dental Pain
If you're experiencing tooth sensitivity, pain, or have recently lost a filling, let Dr. Monica Neely see if tooth-colored fillings are the right solution for you. Although people have received silver-colored or gold-colored amalgam fillings for years, at our office, we usually recommend composite tooth-colored materials especially in the front of the mouth.
They not only are less obvious, but they also provide additional protection and comfort. They help stop the infection from spreading and prevent further damage. If properly cared for they can last a lifetime.
Choosing from a Wide Variety of Filling Materials
Other filling options exist and can be requested including the following:
Our office even offers fillings that include some glass particles, so be sure to ask what is most appropriate for you, your health, and your dental coverage.
Understand the Cavity-Filling Process
Tooth-filling procedures follow a fairly standard procedure and usually take less than an hour to complete and will include the following procedure steps:
- A local anesthetic is applied to the gums to prevent pain and discomfort
- The damaged area of the tooth is cleaned out and prepared
- If you're getting a tooth-colored filling, it is matched to your natural tooth color and inserted into the cavity before being cured with a special light
- Otherwise, a composite filling will be applied to the cavity and allowed to set
If you have experienced extensive damage, a root canal and a replacement crown may be needed. Whenever possible, we try to avoid extracting a tooth.
Request Fast Service When You Feel Dental Pain
If you have a loose filling or lose one, contact our office right away and request an appointment. We'll quickly repair or replace it to ensure the cavity does not become reinfected and cause further damage.
