What is Restorative Dentistry?
Damage to teeth does not heal on its own or get better over time. Repairing this damage is essential to creating a healthy mouth and restorative dentistry returns its natural beauty. For children, one of the biggest concerns is cavities that develop and the fillings that are used to fix them. Traditionally, metal amalgam fillings were used to fill a cavity and restore the bite, but with modern restorative dentistry, our team at Blakeney Pediatric Dentistry offers attractive and healthy composite fillings.
Protect their Smile with Composite Fillings
Composite fillings are an attractive solution to dental fillings. Instead of repairing the damage with an unnatural silver filling, composite fillings blend in with your child’s natural tooth coloration. This means that once in place, they look just like a part of the real tooth. Additionally, composite tooth fillings are healthier for your child as there is no metal used, making it a more holistic solution for their health.
Advantages of Composite Fillings
- Stronger and more durable
- Blend in with natural teeth
- More holistic
- Can fix cracks or chips in teeth
- A quick procedure
