What to expect
Dental fillings are recommended to treat teeth with minor to moderate tooth damage, such as that caused by tooth decay or fracturing or chipping. They work by literally “filling in” the damaged areas of the tooth, restoring the structure, shape and appearance of the tooth so that your child can once again enjoy a healthy smile. Fillings are more conservative than other treatment options and will preserve more of your child’s tooth structure.
Here at Children & Family Dentistry & Braces, we use only composite filling materials, meaning that your child’s filling is tooth-colored and will blend in perfectly with their teeth. Our dentists will first clean your child’s tooth thoroughly, then place the filling material and shape it to match the contours of the tooth. Finally, the filling material will be hardened and polished to complete their treatment. Fillings can be completed in just one appointment.
