At Enchanted Forest Pediatric Dentistry, we use dental fillings to effectively treat cavities as well as repair broken and cracked teeth. Our experienced staff will take care of your child’s dental condition quickly and painlessly, restoring their health and their attractive smile. During the filling process, Dr. Rojas first removes the decayed part of the tooth with a laser and then prevents further damage by filling in the area. The result is the renewal of the tooth’s integrity and function.
There are a host of benefits to protecting your child’s teeth. By investing in children’s dental fillings, you can preserve the enamel of their teeth, which serves as the first line of defense against decay and infection. Tooth decay can seriously weaken enamel, causing tooth sensitivity and pain. This sensitivity can be reversed with dental fillings.
Your child’s natural smile can also be protected with fillings designed to slow or halt hidden decay that develops inside the tooth. Regular dental checkups and mercury-free fillings are key elements in maintaining a healthy mouth.
Modern advances in dentistry have led to safer and more effective pediatric dental fillings. In the past, fillings were made from a mixture of metals, including mercury. Now, mercury-free dental fillings that look completely natural are the preferred option. In addition to being safer, they look more like real teeth.
These composite fillings mimic the appearance and color of natural teeth. This resemblance also makes it easier to change the size, color, and appearance of teeth. Composite fillings can be used to repair chips, close gaps, and give teeth the appearance of being straighter or more even. You can count on our pediatric dentist and staff to provide the dental services your child needs quickly, painlessly, and affordably.
Protecting your child’s dental health—whether it involves fillings or some other procedure—starts with a careful consultation from our staff. After evaluating all of the factors affecting your child’s oral health, we’ll make recommendations based on the cost, the longevity of the treatment and materials, and how a particular procedure will affect your child’s appearance.
