Tooth Colored Fillings

Our pediatric dental team often recommends composite resin or tooth colored fillings.

They are similar in color and texture to the natural tooth.

How is a tooth colored filling placed?

The tooth structure is prepared for the filling. An adhesive is painted on the tooth. A curing light is used to make the adhesive layer firm. The composite resin is layered into the prepared tooth as a putty-like substance. The curing light is used to make the filling strong and hard. The filling is polished to comfort.

Call us today to schedule your visit and our pediatric dental team will be happy to discuss if white or tooth colored fillings are ideal for your child.  

We look forward to meeting you and your child!
