What is a dental filling?
A dental filling is a type of restoration used when a tooth has experienced mild to moderate tooth decay or damage. Dr. Chen and Dr. Chen may recommend a dental filling if the damage is not severe enough to require the use of a dental crown. A dental filling in Glendale, California can restore the tooth’s appearance, structure, and health. To place the filling, our talented dentists will first gently remove the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth. Dr. Chen and Dr. Chen are careful to only remove the damaged portion of the tooth and to provide as conservative a restoration as possible. After removing the decayed portion, we will fill the tooth with the filling material, then shape and polish the filling to comfortably fit your smile. Finally, the dental filling is hardened using a special light. Dental fillings can be completed in just one comfortable visit to T.F. Chen DDS
