Expertise in Restorative Dentistry

At Bay View Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. Paul Cantelmi leads the way in providing top-notch fillings for his young patients. With a commitment to both functionality and aesthetics, Dr. Cantelmi utilizes advanced materials like composite resin, ensuring that the fillings seamlessly blend with natural teeth. This meticulous approach takes a bit more time, but the results are worth every moment.

Before the filling procedure, Dr. Cantelmi ensures your child’s comfort by administering a local anesthetic to numb the area. This ensures a pain-free experience throughout. The decayed portion of the tooth is then skillfully removed, leaving behind a clean canvas for the filling material. For added protection, some dentists may apply glass ionomer to shield the tooth and nerve. Once the filling is in place, Dr. Cantelmi meticulously smoothens rough edges and polishes the tooth, leaving it looking and feeling entirely natural. With Dr. Cantelmi’s expertise, your child’s dental health is not only restored but enhanced, ensuring a smile that radiates confidence and well-being.
