Composite Resins: Strong and Resistant to the Daily Pressures of Your Child's Teeth

During the dental exam, your child’s dentist may identify cavities. The digital x-rays along with a tooth-by-tooth exam can help detect areas of decay. As long as the decay is not too large, in which case it would need a root canal, the tooth can be restored with a simple composite filling.

What Are The Different Options For Fillings?

In general, there are two types of dental fillings that are done in dental clinics. These are either composite (white fillings) or amalgam (silver fillings). While amalgam fillings are often stronger, composite fillings are more aesthetically pleasing.

Why Choose Tooth Colored Fillings?

Composite fillings match the color and physical appearance of natural teeth closely and are preferred by the pediatric dentists at A+ Dental due to the better aesthetics.

How Do You Take Care Of Composite Fillings?

After having the fillings placed, it is very important for children to maintain good oral habits by brushing and flossing two times a day. This way they can prevent recurrent decay from happening and can keep their fillings strong.
