Repairing your child's teeth in one simple, pain-free procedure.
A dental filling is a procedure done to treat your child’s cavities and to repair broken or cracked teeth. Fillings come in a variety of tooth-colored shades in order to blend in with the tooth and not stand out.
When placing your child’s dental filling, our pediatric dentist in Staten Island may or may not use a local anesthetic to numb the area around your child’s tooth. Then, they will remove the decayed or broken tooth material and clean the affected area. Finally, they will apply the cleaned area with layers of filling and mold the material into the desired shape.
Did you know?
Tooth decay (aka a cavity) is one of the most common diseases found in children and adults in America. And fillings fix them!
What are the benefits of Composite Fillings?
A composite filling is one of the fastest and most effective ways of repairing minor cracks or chips of your child’s teeth. They’re also highly recommended by our pediatric dentist in Staten Island as a way of stopping cavities from doing any further damage.
And they do all of that while blending into your child’s smile seamlessly, matching the color and shape of their original teeth.
