A dental filling is a restoration used to repair your child’s minor to moderate tooth damage. We may recommend a filling if your child’s tooth has a cavity or if the tooth has sustained minor fracturing or chipping. Fillings work to restore the original structure and function of the tooth so that you child can once again enjoy a healthy smile.

Our caring pediatric dentist can place your child’s filling in just one comfortable visit. They will first gently remove the decayed or damaged tooth structure from the tooth, then clean it to remove all traces of decay. The filling material is then placed and shaped to match your child’s tooth. This material is carefully selected to match the natural color of your child’s tooth. Finally, we will harden the filling to complete your child’s treatment and give them a lasting restoration for their tooth.

We invite you to call or visit us today to learn more about composite dental fillings and schedule your child’s next appointment with our team. We look forward to caring for your child’s smile!
