Does your child have cavities? Dr. James Shaheen can provide dental fillings to repair the damage to your child’s teeth so that they can once again enjoy a healthy smile! Smiles of Grand River offers both silver and tooth-colored fillings, and we will carefully evaluate your child’s mouth to determine which type of dental filling is most appropriate. To learn more about dental fillings for children in New Hudson, Michigan, and to make an appointment for your child, please call us today at 734-707-8764.
After your child is diagnosed with a cavity, our dentist and team will discuss the treatment process and filling materials with you to help you decide which type of filling is best for your child. Composite (tooth-colored) fillings are often recommended for front teeth or other highly visible areas of the mouth. Silver (amalgam) fillings may be recommended for the back molars.
When your child receives a dental filling, our dentist will gently remove the decay from his or her tooth, clean the area, and place the filling material. We work hard to help make sure that you child remains comfortable throughout this entire procedure.
If you have any questions about dental fillings for children, we invite you to call our office. We will be happy to provide you with more information.
