Tooth decay is one of the most common childhood diseases, so many of our patients are likely to need to have cavities filled at some point while they are in our care. We offer durable tooth-colored fillings without negatively affecting the appearance of your child’s smile.
Because the idea of getting a filling can feel scary and overwhelming to a child, we want to work with you to make sure that you thoroughly understand our treatment process and can reassure your child that there is nothing to fear about fillings.
In addition to treating cavities with tooth-colored fillings, we can also use resin infiltration as a cavity prevention tool or to address small cavities in certain circumstances. If this treatment would be beneficial, we can make recommendations after evaluating your child.
If you have any questions about tooth-colored fillings or resin infiltration, feel free to call our office and speak with one of our friendly, knowledgeable staff members.
Tooth-Colored Fillings: An Overview
Tooth-colored fillings are made of composite resin materials, and they can be tailored to match the shade of your child’s tooth as closely as possible.
