Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth-Colored Fillings from the Best Dentist in Redlands, CA

Composite fillings (more commonly known as tooth-colored fillings) are a less flashy way to fill cavities that uses natural colors. This type of filling covers any tooth flaws, such as broken, chipped, or cracked teeth, and helps restore them back to health in a way that preserves the teeth’ natural look and matches the rest.
The Redlands, CA dentist, Dr. Steve Tatevossian, offers tooth-colored fillings as part of his services to address new dental concerns, such as replacing old metal fillings that pose potential damage to the teeth if left in place.

  • Treatment

    Composite fillings are typically placed in one appointment. While the tooth is numb, Dr. Tatevossian will remove decay as necessary. He will clean and prepare the space for the new filling thoroughly, and if decay was found near the tooth’s nerve, he will apply a select medication to ensure protection. Only once the previous process is done will the composite filling be placed, shaped, and polished, allowing your tooth to be restored to normal. If the patient keeps a consistent routine of good oral hygiene, the fillings can last from 15 years and on.

  • Pricing

    Dental insurance covers composite fillings in some cases, though the price will vary depending on the number of fillings and the type of material used for them. It is advised for patients to check if this procedure is covered with their insurance provider, whether wholly or partially.

  • Special Care For Fillings?


    While there are no specific instructions to take care of them, patients must maintain a healthy oral hygiene routine to keep their fillings optimal and prevent damage to the teeth. Patients are encouraged to brush and floss regularly and schedule dental checkups and cleanings.

  • Do I Have A Cavity?


    We use high-tech appliances such as digital X-rays to identify and confirm cavities, but their use is not limited to just that. Patients can opt to schedule an appointment to check for any issues if they have a toothache, if their teeth are too sensitive to hot or cold, or if chewing is painful for them.
    Getting annual dental exams is recommended, for it makes it easier for the dentist to find potential problems as they develop.

Our Redlands, CA office is dedicated to helping each of our patients to get the best dental care possible through excellent customer care and the highest quality dental services. Dr. Tatevossian treats both cosmetic and general dentistry, and he uses the newest technology to fix teeth’ imperfections such as cavities and cracks, among others.
