There are many instances when your child may damage a tooth. Some common examples include playground accidents, sports accidents, and general decay that has led to a weakened tooth that is more easily damaged. Below are a few types of dental restorations that are offered:
When a tooth has a significant decay, we need to fill the cavity to prevent further damage. Cavities can occur on top of, in between, or inside teeth. We offer non-metallic, tooth-colored fillings to restore your child’s smile.
In the case of extensive decay that threatens the health of the tooth, a stainless steel crown can be applied over the cap of the tooth. Crowns are an excellent option because they offer full coverage protection that’s durable. After removing tooth decay, the dentist will fit and cement a prefabricated crown over the tooth.
