When you have been diagnosed with a cavity, the best option is a tooth colored filling.
Tooth colored fillings have replaced the need for old-school silver fillings. This tooth-colored composite resin is an extremely resilient material that bonds and fortifies structure while keeping the all-natural look of your tooth.

Children and tooth colored fillings
Childhood cavities are just as vital to treat as adults. Even a baby tooth requires fast action.
Primary teeth (baby teeth) guide the growth of the jaw, which aids speech development, and the ability to maintain proper nutrition. Even though baby teeth will eventually fall out, it is important to treat all cavities when they are diagnosed to prevent damage and help your children grow.
Dental cavities are caused by bacteria. This bacteria, when left untreated, will spread to other teeth. Losing a baby tooth too soon can lead to developmental problems that take much longer (and cost a lot more) to fix later in life.
Tooth-colored fillings are a seamless choice for patients of any age! The dentists at Third Coast Dental Group are happy to discuss your child’s dental health and can guide you to the best treatment option!
