Children's Complete Checkup
Does My Child Have A Cavity?
If your child is experiencing tooth sensitivity or toothaches, they may have a cavity. We can diagnose cavities during routine checkups or by using our advanced digital imaging. Cavities are common in the pits and grooves of the teeth, or areas that are more difficult for your child to reach while brushing.
A dental filling can safely and effectively repair your child's decayed or damaged tooth and restore their healthy smile. It’s a simple restorative procedure that can be performed in one day. Our team also offers sedation dentistry to help your child fully relax while in the dentist’s chair.
Natural And Tooth-colored Fillings
We never overlook the quality of your child's smile. Whether you have a young child or a teen, we offer tooth-colored composite fillings to repair cavities. Tooth-colored fillings are a welcome alternative to traditional silver fillings that contain mercury and create that metal-mouth appearance. Using composite resin filling material, your child’s dental filling will naturally blend with their teeth to provide a metal-free cavity repair.
The Benefits Of Tooth-colored Fillings
Composite resin is a ceramic and plastic mixture that replicates the natural enamel in color and texture. The material is gently placed in layers on the tooth before it is hardened in place with a special curing light. After customizing the filling to match the shape and form of the tooth, your child’s dentist will polish it to prevent staining and early wear. The finished restoration looks completely natural!
Are Tooth-colored Fillings Safe?
Tooth-colored composite resin fillings are safe for children age 6 and up. The resin is FDA-approved and is widely used in offices around the world. It contains no metal and won’t stain or discolor your child’s teeth.
