Composite Fillings

About Our Composite Filling Services

Children are more susceptible to cavities than adults. It’s assumed this is the case because they eat more sugar and aren’t fully capable of brushing and flossing their teeth properly. Additionally, baby teeth have a thinner layer of enamel than adult teeth. The outcome tends to be more cavities found during your child’s early years than found later on in their life. If your child has cavities, composite fillings are an excellent choice for long-lasting and effective protection.

Benefits of Composite Fillings:

  • Protects against bacterial invasion
  • Supports and strengthens the tooth
  • Rids tooth of decay
  • Matches the tooth’s natural color
  • Ensures tooth doesn’t continue to decay

Our Composite Fillings Procedure

When a cavity is filled, any and all decay is removed from the affected tooth. Once the tooth is free from decay, the filling material is applied, hardened, and shaped. Composite fillings can be shaded to match the natural color of your child’s teeth, and the filling will work to support and strengthen your child’s tooth against bacterial invasion.
