Dental Examinations

Composite fillings, also referred to as tooth-colored fillings, are a natural way to fill cavities without the unsightly look of silver or gold that were used years ago. These fillings, offered by Redlands, CA dentist, Dr. Steve Tatevossian, correct tooth imperfections, such as broken, chipped, or cracked teeth. Composite fillings restore a tooth back to its health and natural look, and are evenly blended to match the rest of the patient's teeth. Dr. Tatevossian uses tooth-colored fillings to address new dental concerns, as well as to replace old metal fillings that could potentially damage the tooth if left in place long-term.

  • Treatment

    During a dental examination, the dentist will thoroughly check the teeth, gums, jaw, and bones for any signs of decay or oral problems. Dental examinations are used to detect early signs of concerns including cavities, oral cancer, gum disease, and more. The dentist will use dental X-rays to help diagnose any problems that cannot be seen with the eye, such as damage to the jaw or an abscess. Following the dental examination, patients will usually receive a dental cleaning.

  • Pricing

    The typical cost of a dental examination may vary by patient depending on what is being performed, but since it is considered preventative care, all or part of the cost of these examinations are usually covered by dental insurance. Our staff will confirm the patient's coverage before presenting the patient with their out-of-pocket portion.
