Types of Fillings

At Smart Pediatric Dentistry, we offer a variety of fillings to meet the needs of each patient. Our filling options include:

  • Amalgam Fillings: Made of a mixture of metals, these fillings are long-lasting and durable.
  • Composite Fillings: Made of a tooth-colored resin material, composite fillings blend in with the natural teeth and are ideal for visible teeth.
  • Ceramic Fillings: Made of ceramic material, these fillings are strong, durable, and look like natural teeth.

The Procedure for Fillings

At Smart Pediatric Dentistry, our experienced pediatric dentists make sure your child is comfortable and at ease during the filling procedure. The steps of the procedure include:

  • Anesthesia: To minimize discomfort, our dentist will numb the area with a local anesthetic.
  • Removal of Decay: Using a dental drill, our dentist will remove the decayed portion of the tooth.
  • Placement of the Filling: The filling material is then placed into the cavity, shaped, and smoothed to provide a natural-looking, functional tooth.
  • Polishing: The filling is polished to ensure a smooth surface and improve its appearance.
