Cavities, decay that occurs and damages the tooth enamel, are one of the most common conditions we treat at Romney Pediatric Dental. Almost all of our patients will experience a cavity at some point in their life. Luckily, repairing cavities and restoring your child’s tooth to optimal health is a simple treatment readily available from our pediatric dentists. Drs. Walter, Briant, and Clark Romney are pleased to offer both amalgam and composite dental fillings in Salt Lake City, Utah. We will work together with you and your family to determine which type of dental filling will work best for your child’s overall oral health.
Amalgam fillings are made from a mixture of metals and are the easiest type of filling to place. They are also more affordable when compared to other dental fillings. Composite fillings, also known as white fillings or tooth-colored fillings, are made from a durable form of plastic. They bond with the natural structure of the tooth for extra durability and can also be matched to the natural color of the tooth. Composite fillings are ideal for aesthetic purposes.
When removing tooth decay and applying your choice of filling, we will use the greatest care and skill to ensure your child feels comfortable and has a positive experience. If you would like more information about dental fillings, we encourage you to contact our dental office today. We hope to hear from you soon!
