Dental Fillings Glendale, AZ
For many people in the United States, their first restorative procedure is the dental filling. Cavities are common among children and are caused by a sticky substance called plaque. Over time, plaque can eat through a tooth’s enamel, leaving a hole that endangers the entire structure of the tooth. To repair the damage, offices like Paseo Ranch Pediatric Dentistry in Glendale, AZ uses the dental filling.
What Is a Filling?
At Paseo Ranch Pediatric Dentistry, we pride ourselves on being able to address issues like cavities quickly and efficiently. When our dentist identifies a cavity, a dental filling is inserted during the same appointment to halt the decay of the tooth and alleviate any pain the patient might be feeling. Using the latest technology, we ensure you and your loved ones won’t feel the cavity during insertion and have rapid recoveries.

Fillings Q & A

Are dental fillings right for me?
What happens during a dental filling placement?
While you relax in a comfortable dental chair, your dentist can numb the treatment area to optimize comfort during filling placement. They remove any decay and apply filling materials to the affected tooth in small layers using a special dental light. This light hardens each filling layer before your dentist applies the next layer.
Your provider might make small alterations during the process to ensure your filling perfectly matches your bite for optimal comfort and practicality.
