Composite (Tooth-Colored) Fillings

Teeth that have cracked, decayed, or fractured may need a dental filling from your dentist. In just one appointment, your Los Angeles dentist will remove the tooth decay and clean and fill the remainder of your tooth. Our practice uses composite (tooth-colored) fillings that are closely matched to your existing tooth color. These composite fillings are a great aesthetic option for our patients.


Your composite filling will be placed in a single visit. When preparing your tooth for the composite filling, Dr. Javdan will remove all present tooth decay. If the decay was close to the tooth’s nerve, he may apply medication to help protect your tooth. After removing the decay, your tooth will be thoroughly cleaned. At that point, your composite filling will be placed, shaped, and polished by Dr. Javdan.

After receiving your composite filling, Dr. Javdan will advise you on how to care for your new restoration. You may initially experience sensitivity to the filling, but Dr. Javdan will let you know how to manage it and how to maintain your dental health. Please call our dental office in Los Angeles to schedule your next appointment for a composite filling.
