This tooth-colored restoration repairs your child’s teeth!
The aao recommends that children have their first orthodontic visit by age 7
Pediatric Dentists Recommend Two Cleanings/Exams A Year
Dental fillings are a type of restoration and are recommended to repair minor to moderate tooth damage such as that caused by a cavity or minor fracturing or chipping. Our pediatric dentist and team use only composite, or tooth-colored, fillings to ensure a strong final result as well as a solution that blends in with your child’s smile.
Fillings can be provided in just one visit to our pediatric dentist! We will first clean your child’s tooth, removing any damaged or decayed tooth tissue, and then fill the area with the filling material. The material is then shaped to match the natural contours of your child’s tooth and then hardened to create a long-lasting restoration.
Fillings prevent your child from needing a more invasive or extensive treatment. They also “fill in” the damaged portions of the tooth, restoring its shape, appearance and strength so that your child can continue to use that tooth.
Composite dental fillings can restore your child’s teeth and smile! Our skilled pediatric dentist may recommend this tooth-colored restoration if your child develops a cavity or sustains other minor tooth damage. If you have any questions about composite dental fillings or would like to schedule an appointment with our team, call Pediatric Dentistry and Braces today.
