What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?
Dental cavities are a common problem that are created when bacteria attack your enamel. Previously, dental cavities were filled with an amalgam material, which is a mixture of different metals, like silver or mercury. We now know that amalgam fillings don't bond very well with the enamel, and mercury is dangerous to your general health. At Michael F. Alspaugh, DDS in Edmond, OK, our staff uses tooth-colored fillings made with a composite resin to fill and protect cavities. We can also remove old metal fillings and apply tooth-colored fillings for safer and better-looking treatment of cavities.
What to Expect from Tooth-Colored Fillings
Tooth-colored fillings at Michael F. Alspaugh, DDS are usually a simple treatment. Our dental experts will numb the area surrounding the cavity with a local anesthetic to help you feel more comfortable. Stronger forms of sedation may be considered for any fears or dental anxieties to help keep you relaxed. As soon as you are ready, the infected enamel is cleared away with a dental drill that our team will choose based on where the cavity is located in the tooth and the amount of decay. After the enamel is removed and the tooth is disinfected, the cavity will be filled with the composite material and set. Our staff will polish the filling so it matches your other teeth.

Very pleased with Dr. Alspaugh, his entire staff and end results from treatment. My front teeth needed cosmetic work (a small chip and fine “crack”). Also had teeth whitened. Am very pleased how they turned out. Dr spends time with teaching and explaining options.
