Tooth-colored dental fillings are a highly effective solution for restoring teeth affected by decay and minor structural damage. At Calavera Hills Dental, we prioritize not only the health but also the aesthetics of your smile. Tooth-colored fillings, made of composite resin materials, are meticulously designed to match the natural color of your teeth, ensuring a seamless and attractive restoration.

Dental fillings are typically recommended for treating teeth that have suffered from decay, such as cavities, or which have sustained minor fractures or chips. These restorations play a critical role in returning the tooth to its original structure and functionality, thus maintaining your oral health and the integrity of your smile. Unlike amalgam fillings, which are silver in color and more noticeable, tooth-colored fillings blend in with the natural appearance of your teeth.

The procedure to place a dental filling is straightforward and can typically be completed in just one visit to our office. Initially, our dentist will carefully remove the decayed or damaged part of the tooth. Following this, the area is thoroughly cleaned to ensure all decay has been eliminated. The filling material is then applied to the area, sculpted to perfectly mimic the shape of your natural tooth and finally hardened under a special light to secure a durable restoration.

We are committed to providing personalized dental care tailored to meet your individual needs and preferences. If you believe a tooth-colored filling may be right for you, or if you are seeking to replace old amalgam fillings with a more natural-looking alternative, we encourage you to contact our office at 760-842-5876. Our team is dedicated to ensuring your visit is comfortable and your dental health needs are met with the highest standards of care.
