About Dental Fillings

WindHaven Pediatric Dentistry hopes to provide the best care for growing smiles in Prosper, TX, and surrounding communities. Fillings are an important dental treatment for young patients because they prevent further tooth decay and restore the strength of a damaged tooth. Our team offers restorative dental fillings that are completely mercury-free and BPA- free. Dr. Karrie Lee offers composite resin for fillings, which combines resin and ceramic particles. This material bonds very well to the enamel and provides better protection from future decay. Call our office today to learn more about our process or schedule an appointment for your child.

Who is a candidate for dental fillings?

Dental fillings are recommended for young patients who have experienced some form of tooth decay. They are also used to treat worn teeth, cracks in teeth, or those who have experienced dental trauma. WindHaven Pediatric Dentistry will assess if your child is a good candidate for dental fillings. This appointment may include x-rays, an oral exam, and a discussion of your child's overall health and dental history. We use the latest tools and techniques to provide high-quality restorative care.

What to expect during dental filling treatment

Getting a dental filling at WindHaven Pediatric Dentistry is a generally easy process. Our team starts by numbing your child's mouth — so they feel completely comfortable and at ease. Stronger sedation may be considered for children with severe fears or dental anxieties. We then use cutting-edge tools and technologies to remove the decayed tooth material. Once the area is clean and prepared, the filling is carefully placed in the tooth, shaped, and polished to match the surrounding teeth.

Dental fillings FAQs

How long do dental fillings last?

The lifespan of a filling depends on the type of material used and how well it is taken care of and cleaned. With proper dental hygiene, most dental fillings from a pediatric dentist can last for years. This makes them an excellent long-term treatment for young people with teeth that are decayed or damaged.

How do I clean my child's teeth?

Pediatric dentists usually don't recommend that children under three years old use a toothbrush for cleaning. This is because bristles can be damaging to the soft tissues and baby teeth. After three years old, you can use a soft-bristled toothbrush to remove food particles and prevent future problems that require fillings.

How else can I prevent cavities?

Proper oral hygiene is important if you want to prevent cavities in Prosper, TX. Fluoride treatment may help, in addition to brushing twice a day, flossing, and using an antibacterial mouthwash.
