Dental Fillings

Dental fillings replace the portion of the tooth that is removed with the cavity and protects the tooth from further damage, especially fracture of the tooth. At Milton Dental Specialists, we offer tooth-colored fillings and other pediatric dental treatments that are aesthetically pleasing and match the rest of the tooth.

Natural and Tooth-Colored Fillings

Natural or tooth colored fillings are composite resins, and are the most popular fillings used in dental work due to their aesthetic appeal. Although amalgam fillings are still used, most people prefer to have dental fillings that match their natural teeth, especially with the emphasis on a healthy, white smile. Our pediatric dentist, Dr. Chong, can help your child keep their naturally colored teeth with the use of composite resins that are durable and can be matched to their teeth.

Although composite resins are durable, no filling will last a lifetime. The best option is not to need fillings for your children by adhering to stringent dental hygiene practices at home and regular dental checkups and cleanings. Excellent dental care can prevent the need for fillings and keep your child's own teeth intact.

At Milton Dental Specialists, we are committed to helping you and your family avoid the need for cavity fillings. However, when you need a filling, we do offer natural or tooth-colored fillings that will help maintain a white, beautiful smile. Contact us today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Chong for pediatric dental fillings.
