A dental filling is a way to restore a damaged tooth once it has experienced decay. If a tooth develops a hole it will continue to grow if it is not fixed. This can be extremely painful for your child and can have serious consequences. Fortunately, Forever Smiles provides fillings that will have your child smiling again! Our dentists will remove any decay, clean the affected area and fill the cavity. Filling the tooth will prevent bacteria from entering the space, causing further decay. There are several different materials that can be used for the filling, including gold, porcelain and composite resin. Our staff will help choose which is the best material for your child’s condition. Finally, we will provide numbing to make sure you child does not experience any pain during the procedure.
