Restorative pediatric dentistry plays an important role in managing tooth decay and identifying a child’s risk for decay progression. Our dentists are active observers who assess disease progression and manage it with appropriate restorative treatment when necessary.
Restorative dental care includes the following:
Fillings– Tooth-colored filling materials are used repair cracked, broken or diseases teeth. These aesthetic fillings leave teeth looking natural because they aren’t noticeable.
Crowns– Teeth that are too damaged to repair with fillings can be restored with crowns. This often is important even for baby teeth, because the baby teeth serve as space holders for permanent teeth until they are ready to erupt. They mimic the shape and size of the tooth they are repairing so your child can maintain chewing function.
