Tooth-Colored Fillings in Santa Ana, CA

Cavities, one of the most common dental problems, develop when bacteria attack dental enamel. Previously, dental cavities were filled with an amalgam material, a mixture of metals, including silver or mercury. Now we know that these fillings don't bond well with the enamel, and the mercury is dangerous to a patient's general health. At South Coast Pediatric Dentistry in Santa Ana, CA, pediatric dentist Dr. Kent N. Do offers tooth-colored fillings made from a composite resin to fill and protect cavities. Dr. Kent can also remove old metal fillings and apply composite resin fillings for a safer, better-looking cavity treatment.

Getting a filling at South Coast Pediatric Dentistry is generally a quick process. The area surrounding the cavity will be numbed to minimize any discomfort. Other forms of sedation can be discussed for any fears or anxieties to keep your child relaxed during the procedure. As soon as your child is ready, the decayed enamel is treated using a dental drill that will be selected based on where the cavity is located in the tooth and the amount of decay. Once the enamel is removed and the area is cleaned, the cavity will be filled with the composite resin material and set. The filling material will then be polished so it feels comfortable and matches the other teeth.

At our Santa Ana, CA practice, we strive to provide our patients with modern options in oral care. Tooth-colored fillings are a reliable and effective solution, providing patients with a number of perks, such as:

  • Defending against cavities
  • Protecting against plaque and debris collection
  • Attractive appearance that flawlessly integrates with your child's smile
  • Simple, convenient procedure that leads to long-lasting prevention
