When a filling is required, children’s dentists in Vancouver, WA, Dr. Mo and Dr. G can provide mercury-free white tooth-colored composite dental fillings.
Closely matched to the color and shape of your child’s surrounding teeth, this procedure protects his or her teeth while providing a beautiful smile.
If your child has received amalgam fillings over the years, Dr. Mo and Dr. G will closely monitor them for any signs of failure and replace them with tooth-colored composite fillings if and when necessary. These natural-looking fillings prevent further tooth decay while strengthening weakened teeth, protecting your child’s smile.
In some cases due to the extensive damage from dental cavities, instead of a filling a Stainless Steel Crown might be recommended on the molars (back teeth).
