Tooth-Colored Fillings

If we find out a cavity has set up shop in your little one’s mouth, it’s not the end of the world. We can give decay the boot and restore their smile with a tooth-colored filling. The composite resin material is durable, strong and, most importantly, undetectable. It will blend right in with the rest of their pearly whites. We make sure the experience isn’t scary and we use modern techniques and technology, so the procedure is quick and painless.

Seamlessly Restoring Smiles

When a patient comes in for a tooth-colored filling, we show them the instruments we’ll be using and let them get used to all of the sights and sounds, which goes a long way in alleviating fear and anxiety. Once they’re comfortable, we numb the area and remove all of the tooth decay. The space that’s left behind is cleaned and primed before we fill it with composite resin material. We use our magic wand, technically known as a curing light, to harden the filling and then we make adjustments for a perfect fit. Finally, we shape and polish it so that it looks and feels natural and your child’s smile is as good as new.

Tooth-colored fillings are as much as 95% as strong as a natural tooth.
Half of children aged 12 to 15 are affected by tooth decay.
About 23% of kids between ages two and 11 have untreated cavities.
