We provide children with dental fillings in our Tucson office to restore holes caused by decay or to repair damaged sections of children’s teeth. There are many types of filling materials available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. Metal-free fillings have become popular because of their ability to restore a tooth while blending naturally with the rest of your child’s smile.
We decide whether metal amalgam or metal-free fillings should be recommended for your child based on aesthetics and the location of the cavity. Because metal-free fillings can be color-matched by Dr. Bunch or Dr. Marshall, they’re typically better suited for front teeth or other highly visible teeth.
Metal-free fillings can be used for more than just filling cavities. Composed of tooth-colored composite resin material, they can be used to repair other areas of your child’s smile, including chipped, broken or cracked teeth.
Metal and metal-free dental fillings in our Tucson, AZ office allow us to offer solutions based on your child’s personal oral health. We always aim to use the most modern standards of dentistry in terms of conservation, longevity, and restoration when considering the health of each tooth needing repair.
