White Tooth Fillings for Children

White Tooth Fillings for Children

Nobody enjoys hearing that their child has a cavity, but it happens on a fairly regular basis – especially for kids who have weak enamel or who don’t floss regularly.

At Prime Children’s Dentistry and Orthodontics, you can rely on us to provide the best care to prevent and treat tooth decay in its earliest stages.

Early Diagnosis and Treatment

An important part of maintaining your child’s optimal oral health is helping you, as a parent, understand the nature of concerns that may arise, as well as the treatment options available. With intraoral (IO) imaging and digital x-rays, we can provide you with an up close view of cavities, so you can see the problem first-hand. The earlier the cavity is diagnosed, the simpler and more affordable the treatment process can be.

Mercury Free Fillings for Kids

At our children’s dentist office in Bonita Springs, we only offer white composite fillings to restore your child’s teeth. Composite fillings offer many benefits. They are:

Minimally Invasive

Unlike silver fillings, white fillings bond directly to your child’s tooth. That means less drilling, and more tooth structure saved.


Your child can enjoy a more pleasing smile, without the flash of unsightly silver fillings. Composites are custom-matched to the color of your child’s natural enamel for a seamless appearance.


Silver, amalgam fillings contain mercury, which can be leached in small amounts into surrounding tissues over time. Composites are mercury-free and more aesthetically pleasing.

White Bonding

One of the most common childhood injuries is a chipped tooth. But don’t worry, tooth-colored bonding can be used to repair fractured baby teeth as well as permanent ones, to help your child’s smile look whole again.

Don’t Be Nervous!

If your child is a little anxious about getting a filling, we understand. We take every measure possible to make each visit a positive, enjoyable one for your entire family.

Along with a fun, playful environment with lots of entertaining distractions, we offer sedation options to ensure your child feels relaxed and at ease. Nitrous oxide gas and oral sedatives are available.

If you’re concerned that your child might have a cavity, call today to schedule an exam or to get a free 2nd opinion.

If a tooth cannot be restored, we frequently recommend having it wiggled out to prevent spread of infection to other areas.
