When Are Fillings Necessary?
In short, fillings become necessary when your child develops a small cavity. While their pediatric dentist will check for the warning signs at each of their biannual visits, it’s important to keep an eye out for the following too:
- Small white, brown, or dark spots on the teeth.
- A persistent toothache.
- Sensitivity to foods and drinks that are hot, cold, acidic, or sweet.
Most often, this is the result of the acid from sugary foods burning through the enamel, exposing the sensitive inner layers of the tooth. To prevent further decay or an infection, the decayed tissue needs to be carefully removed as soon as possible. The next step will be to rebuild the missing tooth structure with a tooth-colored filling, which will restore the look and function of your child’s tooth.
Remember: your child’s baby teeth matter. Although they will eventually fall out, they play a crucial role in your child’s self-esteem, bite, and dental alignment. Letting a decayed tooth progress can wreak havoc on their oral and overall health, which is why it’s of the utmost importance that you schedule their filling the moment their dentist brings it to your attention.
What Are the Benefits of a Tooth-Colored Filling?
Previously, amalgam fillings were the go-to solution for addressing small cavities. Of course, the noticeable dark spots left much to be desired in the looks department. Fortunately, that’s where tooth-colored fillings come in! In addition to coming in a wide range of lifelike shades, they are:
- Minimally invasive
- Incredibly durable
- 100% safe
How Much Do Tooth-Colored Fillings Cost?
Since fillings aren’t a one-size-fits-all treatment, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all cost. Important factors need to be taken into account, after all, like how large the cavity is and if there is more than one. Don’t worry – our team will happily do our part to make understanding the cost as easy as possible.
