Pediatric Tooth Colored Fillings in Plano
Learn About Pediatric Restorative Dentistry
At Soaring Smiles Pediatric Dentistry, we know that children can be sensitive to certain materials, which is why we provide dental plans on a customized basis. We take the time to learn about your child's needs and assess what treatment will be the most appropriate solution. If your child has cavities and needs fillings, we will likely recommend tooth colored fillings. This material is extremely durable and safe for children of all ages.
Are Tooth Colored Fillings Right for My Child?
There are multiple different types of fillings which can be used to restore teeth after they have been damaged or a cavity has been removed. Typically, they are made up of metal, gold, porcelain, or composite. We take into account a number of different factors when we decide which type of material should be used for your child's fillings.
A few factors we consider in regards to filling material include:
- How the filling will be placed
- The location of the filling
- The chewing load of the tooth
- The existing tooth structure
Our board-certified pediatric dentist in Plano is known for being extremely caring and gentle with children during the filling process.
Benefits of Tooth Colored Fillings in Plano
Just years ago, dentists relied on metal to fill teeth after cavities were removed. Many people felt that this was unsafe due to a mixture of mercury and other materials used to make the fillings. They were also considered unsightly by many since the metal was quite visible. Tooth colored fillings match your teeth, making them nearly invisible. There are also no health risks which are associated with this type of material.
