Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are a fundamental aspect of pediatric dental care, crucial for repairing cavities and restoring the integrity of a child’s tooth. Our pediatric dentist and team specialize in providing dental fillings in Virginia Beach, Virginia, that are not only effective but also comfortable and kid-friendly.

Understanding Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are used to repair teeth that have been affected by decay. The decayed material is removed, and the cavity is filled with a filling material. This procedure not only restores the tooth’s shape and function but also prevents further decay. We offer various types of fillings, including tooth-colored composite resins, to ensure the best aesthetic and functional results for your child.

The Dental Fillings Process

The process for dental fillings typically involves:

  1. Conducting a thorough examination to identify cavities.
  2. Gently removing the decayed tooth material.
  3. Cleaning the affected area to prepare it for the filling.
  4. Carefully placing the filling material into the cavity and shaping it to match the tooth’s natural contours.
  5. Using a special light to harden the filling and restore the tooth’s strength.

Benefits of Dental Fillings

  • Restores the normal function and appearance of the tooth.
  • Prevents the need for more extensive dental work in the future.
