Restorative Fillings and Crowns

A child's dental health is a precious aspect of their overall well-being, and as parents, we strive to protect their bright smiles. However, tooth decay is a common dental issue among children; and if left untreated, it can lead to more significant problems.  

Restorative fillings and crowns are essential dental treatments to repair and protect damaged teeth. A restorative filling is a dental filling used to repair a decayed tooth. On the other hand, a crown is a dental restoration used to cover or "cap" a tooth too damaged to be restored with a filling. At Bright Smiles 4 Kids of Bala, we offer fillings and crowns to help our young patients restore their smiles after cavities or other damage. Our dentist is experienced in treating children and will take the time to explain each option to you so that you can make the best decision for your child’s needs.

Restorative Fillings

If our dentist, Dr. Jyoti, finds decay on your child’s teeth, she may recommend a dental filling. Restorative fillings are dental treatments that repair teeth affected by cavities or minor damage.  

When tooth decay occurs, our dentist removes the decayed portion of the tooth and fills the resulting cavity with a durable material, typically composite resin. This process stops the decay from progressing and restores the tooth's function and appearance.

Dental Crowns

If your child has severe tooth decay, our dentist may recommend a crown instead of a filling. A crown is a cap that fits over a tooth to protect it from further damage. This treatment involves removing a large portion of the enamel from the tooth and then covering it with a cap made of porcelain, ceramic, metal, or a combination of both materials. The crown restores the function and appearance of the tooth and protects it from further damage.

The Benefits of Restorative Fillings and Crowns

Preventing Further Damage

Restorative fillings and crowns are vital in preventing further damage to the affected teeth. If left untreated, cavities and dental decay can progress, leading to pain, infection, and tooth loss. Dentists can promptly address these issues with restorative treatments to protect children's teeth and avoid more extensive dental procedures.

Restoring Function and Aesthetics

Decay and damage can compromise the function and appearance of a child's tooth. Restorative fillings and crowns repair the tooth's structure and restore its function and aesthetics. With the appropriate treatment, children can continue to eat, speak, and smile confidently.

Restorative fillings and crowns are vital in protecting children's dental health and their smiles. By addressing cavities and damage promptly, these treatments prevent further complications and ensure proper dental function and aesthetics.
