There is more than one way to fix a child’s tooth. Whether it’s decay or a crack, we have a restoration option.
Today’s message looks at three pediatric tooth restoration procedures we provide to repair a damaged tooth:
1. Dental Bonding
Bonding is used to correct chips, cracks, stains, and make teeth longer, and is also sometimes used to fill cavities. Your dentist applies a pliable composite resin and molds it to the exact shape needed. The resin is then hardened with a special curing light.
2. A Filling (Inlay or Onlay)
A filling fixes a cavity and is shaped and molded to fit to the tooth. Because inlays and onlays are created in a dental lab, they are often called indirect fillings. Inlays are applied to just the center of the biting surface of a tooth (not to a cusp or point) and are usually smaller than onlays.
3. A Dental Crown
Crowns are used for teeth that have had a root canal, teeth with severe decay, or the replacement tooth in a dental bridge. Crowns can be made of all metal, porcelain fused to metal, all-ceramic, or all resin.
It’s critical to restore both primary and permanent teeth. If your child has a cavity or damaged tooth, don’t delay treatment.
