Even if your kid diligently brushes and flosses every day, cavities can still happen. Fortunately, if your little one has a spot of decay in their smile, they no longer have to worry about a noticeable metal filling marring their precious grin, thanks to tooth-colored fillings in Poway. Dr. Sam uses composite resin to conservatively and seamlessly restore your child’s smile. This material is shaded and sculpted to perfectly match the shape and color of your little one’s natural enamel. Contact us today to learn more.
ADVANTAGES OF TOOTH-COLORED FILLINGS
Composite resin fillings are significantly better than their metal counterparts, especially for kids and image-conscious teens. Tooth-colored fillings are just that – tooth-colored. They can be custom shaded to match your child’s existing tooth enamel. Metal fillings, on the other hand, are clearly noticeable, especially on a front tooth. With tooth-colored fillings in Poway, no one even has to know that your little one had a cavity in the first place!
The other main benefit of composite resin fillings is that they are a much more conservative treatment. With metal fillings, more natural tooth structure had to be removed to make room. Since composite fillings are bonded directly to the tooth, less enamel needs to be removed. Once enamel is gone, it’s gone forever, so it’s best to keep as much of it as possible.
