The Advantage of Metal-Free Fillings

If your child has significant tooth decay or damaged teeth, the pediatric dentists at Northwest Children’s Dentistry can provide fillings to protect them.  While there are many different types of fillings, metal-free fillings have recently become popular.  Here’s why.

  • Blend in with your child’s smile.  It’s much harder to see the difference between your child’s natural tooth and a metal-free filling with color matching.
  • Fill in cavities.  Metal-free fillings can be used as a metal substitute for cavities.
  • Repair chipped, broken, or cracked teeth.  Resin material can fit in these gaps to restore teeth with these kinds of damages.

Different types of materials have advantages and disadvantages.  As your child’s pediatric dentist in Tucson, we can walk you through the pros and cons of each.  If you have any questions for our office, feel free to call us at (520) 544-8522.
