Tooth Colored Fillings for Children in Salisbury

Sometimes despite our best efforts at brushing and flossing, kids still develop dental cavities. When cavities are smaller sized and located away from the nerve of the tooth, white fillings are the preferred method of restoring natural form and function and keeping your child from developing pain or infection.

White fillings require minimal removal of tooth structure and they blend perfectly into the tooth, so you won’t even notice an esthetic difference. The downside is they do require more careful brushing and maintenance at home to ensure they last your child a long time.

Some teeth are not great candidates for white fillings. These include teeth with larger cavities that may require nerve treatment, teeth that are structurally compromised, or teeth on young children that are difficult to maintain great oral hygiene. In these cases, a pediatric crown may be recommended.  If your child needs restorative treatment, call us at (410) 202-8515 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Matt.
