Once your child’s dental cavity has been located, the decayed area has been removed, and the tooth has been thoroughly cleaned and prepped, it’s time for the dental filling. There are a few types of dental fillings in our Firestone, Colorado pediatric dental office, each with some pros and cons to consider.
Each type of dental filling has its own durability, aesthetic, and price considerations, so it’s important to talk to your child’s dentist about your options and what is right for your child.
Below are the types of dental fillings offered in our office and a few things to consider about each option:
Here at Firestone Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we’re happy to discuss your child’s dental filling options with you. Molars will require more durable fillings than front teeth and front teeth will require more aesthetic considerations than molars. In addition, some insurances will only cover certain filling types, so it’s important to know this information beforehand as well.
