Cavities are a big nuisance, especially for younger patients who love super-sugary foods and might not brush and floss to the best of their abilities. Thankfully, Our doctors and the rest of the Texas Tiny Teeth Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics team offers a simple and appearance-friendly solution – tooth-colored fillings! Unlike traditional amalgam, these fillings are crafted from flexible, lifelike composite resin materials that blend right in with natural smiles. If your child is ready for an appointment, don’t hesitate to contact one of our five convenient locations today!
In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, tooth-colored fillings are also directly bonded to the tooth enamel, which creates a stronger, more durable result that preserves more of the tooth’s remaining, healthy structure. They’re mercury-free as well, which is better for your child’s overall health and wellbeing. They’re also less sensitive to changes in temperature, which makes them much more comfortable to boot! Our doctors will always do their best to help your son or daughter fight a good battle against tooth decay, and valuable preventive measures like dental sealants and fluoride supplements are available too to help protect and strengthen growing teeth over time.
