Treat Tooth Decay With Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are the best way to repair your child’s teeth if they are affected by decay. By removing the decayed enamel and replacing it with a filling, Dr. Knight can restore both the natural function and appearance of your child’s smile. We use a Solea Laser for our fillings, which means that no numbing or sedation is required.

Gentle Treatment

 With no drill dentistry, we can perform painless treatments with a dental laser. Many patients don’t even need local numbing agents when they get a filling at our office!

Optimal Results

We offer both metal-amalgam and composite, tooth-colored fillings to meet the needs of every pediatric patient.

Treat Common Issues

Cavities are, by far, the most common oral health issue in childhood. It’s estimated that about 1 in 4 children have at least one cavity by their fourth birthday.

Composite Fillings

Composite fillings are an alternative to metal amalgam fillings. Instead of a blend of metals like mercury, tin, silver and copper, composite fillings are made from a special dental resin. This resin can be matched perfectly with the color of your child’s teeth for a seamless, natural look. This provides better cosmetic results, so we usually recommend composite fillings when treating cavities. However, we also have numerous other options to meet the needs of every patient.

the benefits of Fillings

Treating cavities as soon as possible with dental fillings will protect your child's smile from further damage. Fillings ensure that all decayed tooth material is removed and that your child's tooth structure is repaired. If a cavity is left untreated, more severe issues can occur, such as tooth infection and even the premature loss of a tooth. If fillings are not placed and monitored by a pediatric dentist, losing space or baby teeth can have serious long term consequences on their future adult teeth.


What Are The Benefits Of Composite Fillings?

The primary benefit of a composite filling is the enhanced aesthetics provided by the tooth-colored material. It will blend in with the rest of your child’s teeth and be nearly indistinguishable from natural enamel. For these reasons, Dr. Knight typically recommends composite fillings to treat cavities in permanent teeth.

How Do Fillings Treat Decay?

Cavities are caused by weak enamel that decays over time due to oral bacteria and acid. If this weak enamel is removed and replaced, the cavity can be eliminated and its progression can be stopped. During treatment, Dr. Knight will remove any damaged enamel from your child’s tooth, then replace it with a dental filling to restore its shape and function. By eliminating the weak enamel and replacing it with an inert material, the progression of the cavity can be halted.
