Tooth-Colored Fillings

When teeth are damaged with decay and cavities, dentists use fillings to fill the pits and restore the function and shape of the teeth. Dental fillings are also recommended to prevent bacteria from causing further damage to the gums and teeth.

At Encino Dental Health and Cosmetics, we offer the highest quality tooth-colored filling that helps maintain the health of your teeth. Tooth-colored fillings fill the gap and closely resemble your natural teeth.

Dental Examination Before Fillings

At Encino Dental Health and Cosmetics, we perform quality procedures. We will perform a complete examination to assess your oral health during your first consultation. The dentist will take digital x-rays to identify the root cause and the severity of the damage.


Digital x-rays also allow us to identify progression, new decay, or alignment problems. Compared to traditional x-rays, digital x-rays use 70% radiation and are more precise.

The Process of Fillings

After examination, the dentist will remove plaque build-up and decay. After cleaning the teeth, a tooth-colored resin filling will be placed over the cavity to fill the gap. The filling will be cured using special high-powered light. The dentist will perform a detailed examination to ensure that the filling is securely placed and has taken the correct shape.


Patients may experience minor changes or discomfort after fillings.


Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings


Composite resin fillings supersede metal fillings in many ways. The benefits they have over other fillings include:

  • When exposed to hot or cold, metal fillings contract and expand. Minor movements caused by the filling eventually cause them to leave their space. Patients with metal fillings have to visit the dentist for maintenance regularly. Compared to them, resin fillings securely remain intact to the teeth and have a more extended utility
  • Minor movements in the filling can allow bacteria to penetrate and damage the gums. Resin fillings prevent that by remaining fixed to their space.
  • Other fillings require scratching the tooth’s surface, removing enamel to prepare the tooth for filling. Resin fillings require minimal scratching and are a comparatively simple procedure.

Years of experience performing dental fillings help us understand each patient’s distinct needs. The quality of our service speaks for itself. For more details about dental fillings, feel free to contact us. We are looking forward to serving you.
