Dr. Reddy has been very helpful. He is very considerate. He listened to my problem and suggested best possible treatments. He is a thorough professional and treated me with utmost care. What else do we expect from a dentist. I am going to be a regular from now for his consult. Thank you Dr. Reddy

I went in because I was trying to find a dentist to transfer my Invisalign case to, since I recently moved. Dr Amelia came off as competent and knowledgeable and she seemed to getting care that I was happy with the end results of my treatment. I'll definitely be considering continuing my treatment with her.

Dr. Chan is by far the best dentist I’ve ever had. She is so friendly and kind that my 3 and 6 year-old-kids finally enjoyed going to a dentist. The front desk staff and hygienists are incredibly nice and they make it very clear customer satisfaction is the number one priority for them. I highly recommend Dr. Chan and associates to all my friends and patients.

Great dentist! I really appreciated the treatment coordinator Marsha. She walked me through how my appointments would work and the costs and it made me feel very comfortable. The space was clean & the staff was nice. It’s a big office so they can do anything you need on the premises. I will keep going there from now on!

Fillings

Checking for tooth decay and wear is an important part of your dental checkup. If our dentist finds cavities or cracked teeth, the solution is usually to fill the tooth with fillings. Getting a filling for your damaged teeth can help you keep them for as long as possible. So, if you have a tooth that is painful or sensitive to hot and cold, it is important to see your dentist.

PREPARING THE TOOTH FOR FILLING

Before filling a tooth, your dentist examines it and takes x-rays to determine the condition of the tooth and the exact location of the damage. After numbing the area with a local anesthetic, the dentist uses a drill, laser or air abrasion tool to remove the damaged portions of the tooth. The next step is to prepare the tooth for filling by cleaning out any harmful bacteria and/or debris.

TEMPORARY FILLINGS

Suppose you have a painful tooth, but want to put off getting a filling because of time or money constraints. In that case, our dentist can put in a temporary filling to protect your tooth root and gums while relieving the immediate pain. Temporary fillings are used for protection between dental visits when more than one separate appointment is required for a more complex treatment such as a root canal and filling.

CHOOSING A FILLING MATERIAL

Your dentist will help you decide what type of filling you need and want for each tooth. If you need to have more than one tooth filled, you might opt to have a tooth-colored or gold filling in the front and silver fillings in the back of your mouth.

CAST GOLD FILLINGS

Many people like the look of gold fillings. However, the value of using gold for fillings goes beyond appearance preferences. Gold fillings do not corrode and can last 10 or 15 years, or even longer. They are strong enough to withstand the force of chewing.

TOOTH-COLORED FILLINGS

The three types of tooth-colored fillings are composite, ceramic and glass ionomer fillings. Ceramic fillingscan last 15 years or longer. Glass ionomer fillings are a great option for children because they release fluoride, but they only last 5 to 7 years.

Composite fillings are the most common of the tooth-colored fillings. These fillings usually only last about 5 years or less. Yet, they are a versatile treatment for many dental problems. Many people also prefer the appearance of these natural-looking fillings. Be aware that if you have a tooth-colored composite filling, your visit will probably be longer than with silver fillings.
