If your child develops a cavity, or sustains minor tooth damage such as a chipping or a small fracture in the tooth, our pediatric dentist may recommend a tooth-colored dental filling to repair and restore the tooth. Tooth-colored fillings, also known as composite fillings, play an important role in treating minor to moderate tooth damage, working to restore the tooth while also ensuring a natural and aesthetic final result for their smile.
Your child’s filling can be placed in a single, comfortable visit to Longhorn Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics. First, a local anesthetic will be provided to ensure your child’s comfort. Our skilled pediatric dentist will then begin by gently removing any decayed or damaged material from your child’s tooth. Thorough cleaning follows to eliminate all traces of decay. Then, the tooth-colored filling material is applied and meticulously shaped to match the natural contours of your child’s tooth. Finally, the filling is hardened using a special curing light, ensuring a durable and long-lasting restoration.
Choosing pediatric tooth-colored dental fillings not only restores your child’s oral health and function but also ensures an aesthetically pleasing outcome, as what sets tooth-colored fillings apart is their cosmetic appeal. Made from a blend of high-quality plastic and glass particles, these fillings closely mimic the appearance of natural teeth. They are available in a range of shades, allowing us to precisely match the color of your child’s tooth, making the restoration virtually invisible.
