White Fillings

Cavities in baby teeth affect children frequently. At Red Rock Kids Dental, we often recommend composite fillings – also called white fillings – for a quick, easy solution.

The advantages of white fillings can include:

  • Closely matching the color and physical appearance of natural teeth
  • Preferred by most pediatric dentists
  • Successful use on chewing surfaces like molars
  • Restored teeth affected by decay or trauma

 

    We design strong pediatric fillings that are resistant to the daily pressures of chewing and biting. Our white fillings also blend naturally with your child’s real teeth.

    Because enamel is thinner than the enamel on adult teeth, cavities in baby teeth can occur due to sugar in your child’s diet, brushing and flossing insufficiencies, or genetic issues.

    First, we will make your children feel comfortable in our kid-friendly office, using sedation if it is requested. Next, the tooth is etched and prepared for the filling. We will place the composite filling, and use a blue light to cure it. Finally, our staff can make any adjustments necessary to the white filling to ensure a comfortable bite and flawless aesthetic for your child.
