No more cavities!
If your child’s tooth decay is minimal, then the treatment may include an esthetic white filling. White dental fillings are strong, stain-resistant, and require less removal of your child’s tooth structure.
Our tooth fillings match the natural color of your child’s teeth using a composite resin. They’re an excellent option for small to mid-sized cavities, are durable, and look like natural tooth structure.
Stainless Steel Crowns
Restorations for primary teeth.
Stainless steel dental crowns are one of the premiere treatments for primary teeth with extensive decay or damage. The extent of decay will be determined by Dr. Wilkerson from both the clinical exam in the mouth and the dental X-rays. If there is extensive damage, a stainless steel crown can save the tooth and prevent removal.
Primary teeth are important because they’re used for function, speech, and holding space for the permanent tooth. Many times, the primary back teeth that require this type of treatment will not be naturally lost until the ages of 11 or 12, so it becomes especially important to treat these teeth.
