The advantages of tooth-colored fillings include:
- Tooth-colored fillings are made from composite resins and porcelains. They are safe, comfortable, and react more like your natural teeth.
- Composite fillings offer a firm bonding with your teeth which creates stronger, more protected, and comfortable dental fillings.
- Dental fillings restore the structure, look and feel of your teeth. These teeth restorative materials help to recreate tooth that not only looks natural but responds effectively to biting force.
- White fillings can be used on front and back teeth without compromising aesthetics. And they can be replaced if damaged.
Are tooth-colored fillings the best choice for my child?
The key to determining if tooth-colored fillings are the ideal option for restoring your teeth is to seek consultation with your dentist. When recommending fillings, your pediatric dentist will take into account the current condition of your teeth, the location of the teeth involved, the size of the area to be restored, and the biting forces being placed on the teeth. That way, you can achieve a healthy-looking smile.
What Is Involved in Children’s Tooth Colored Fillings?
When you bring your child for tooth-colored fillings in Amor Kids Dentistry, our experienced pediatric dentist, Dr. Heivi Kim, will examine the child’s mouth to determine if that will be the right procedure. If that is the case, the dentist will discuss the procedure further and answer any question you or the child may have.
The actual procedure starts with the administration of an anesthetic. When the child is calm and relaxed, the dentist will remove the decay, clean and prepare the affected area before filling with the composite material.
