Children's Dental Fillings & Crowns
Children's dental fillings and crowns are used to repair cavities and other dental problems in children. Fillings are used to fill in small cavities, while crowns cover larger cavities or repair broken teeth.
White, Composite Fillings
In our pediatric dental office, we use natural-looking, white composite fillings. Composite fillings are made of a resin material that is tooth-colored. They are meant to match the color of the tooth so that the fillings will not stand out when your child smiles.
Children's Dental Crowns
Crowns are made of various materials, including metal, porcelain, and ceramic. They are strong and durable and can be made to match the color of the child's teeth.
Dental fillings and crowns are typically done in one appointment. The dentist will clean the tooth and then apply the filling or crown. The child may experience discomfort, but the dentist will prescribe pain medication.
Dental fillings and crowns are a safe and effective way to repair children's cavities and other dental problems. They can help to prevent pain and infection, and they can help to maintain a healthy smile.
Here are some of the benefits of dental fillings and crowns for children:
- Repairs cavities and other dental problems. Dental fillings and crowns can help to repair cavities and other dental problems, such as broken teeth.
- Prevents pain and infection. Dental fillings and crowns can help to prevent pain and infection by sealing the tooth and preventing bacteria from entering.
