At Bay View Pediatric Dentistry, we are committed to providing expert preventative care and education to all our patients, but especially to children, as there are critical components to developing lifelong, healthy habits and optimal dental health. Our team is dedicated to offering best-in-class pediatric dental services to ensure your child’s oral hygiene is the best it can be from childhood to adulthood.
Sometimes children can be more susceptible to oral injury or cavities, so it is essential to stay up-to-date with your child’s dental exams and cleanings. If your child’s tooth suffers from a traumatic injury or a cavity, we may recommend a composite filling. These fillings are a mixture of multiple components and can be placed in the tooth to fill any cavities or cracks along a tooth’s surface. Composite fillings are also used to help recolor discolored teeth or add shape back to teeth that are chipped. Because these fillings have a range of color shades to choose from, they are capable of repairing both back and front teeth.
Along with our pediatric dental services, we are specialists in helping parents instill healthy habits in their children at a young age while also diagnosing future problems and preventing dental issues later in life. For more information about our pediatric dental services, or to schedule an appointment for your child’s filling, contact us today at (718) 836-9100.
