Schedule an appointment today, we’d be happy to evaluate the affected tooth to determine the best treatment option.
Why Dental Fillings?
Left untreated, tooth decay and cavities can actually become a very serious problem. As decay continues to progress it can reach your tooth root, leading to severe infections and discomfort. Tooth decay can also increase your risk of gum infections along with periodontal gum disease. Ultimately, cavities can result in a tooth having to be extracted.
Amalgam Silver Fillings
For many years, amalgam silver fillings were the only option when it came to treating cavities. However, research has shown that they contain mercury, a toxic, liquid metal. At Surprise Pediatric Dentistry we are proud to offer the latest, safest and healthiest options available.
Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings
At Surprise Pediatric Dentistry we are proud to offer tooth-colored dental fillings which are designed to blend with the patient’s natural smile. Tooth-colored fillings are typically made using a composite material and can last for many years with proper at-home and in-office dental care.
