Restorative dental care is one of the most important things you can do for your child. While preventative measures are essential, from time to time, a little more work is needed.

We use a BPA-free composite filling instead of amalgam fillings. These are strong, discreet, and perfect for filling cavities.
Using tooth-colored fillings, we can quickly have your tooth back in action. A filling restores the structure of the tooth.
The part of the tooth we can see is the crown. Crowns can sometimes get damaged, and a crown replacement is a quick way to repair the tooth.
There are several material options, including stainless steel, zirconia, and re-veneered crowns.
While every other option will be explored before extraction would be considered, sometimes it is for the best.
When there is an injury to the tooth, a root canal is not an option, or an impacted tooth – extraction can be the best option.
A root canal removes infected pulp from within the tooth, which can immediately end any pain they have been experiencing.
The infected pulp will be removed, the roots will be sterilized, and a crown will be placed.
