We are a mercury-free practice. We specialize in restoring children’s teeth with cosmetic white tooth-colored fillings. These fillings help conservatively repair the tooth after a cavity has already formed. Wellspring Pediatric Dentistry also offers minimally invasive tooth colored fillings for stained or discolored teeth. Depending on the nature of the cavity and method of treatment Dr. Mehta can avoid having to administer local numbing agents to place these white fillings.
Wellspring Pediatric Dentistry can also replace silver/mercury fillings with white tooth colored fillings. These are not only more pleasing to the eye, but are very strong thanks to new bonding technologies.
Advantages of Tooth-Colored Restorations
There are many advantages to tooth-colored restorations. White fillings are bonded to the teeth creating a tight and well adapted seal to the natural tooth. Such restorations can be used to fix small or moderately sized cavities more conservatively. With these fillings much of the tooth remains intact and protected. The resin wears like natural teeth and can be customized to the shade of your teeth!
Your teeth are restored to a natural look and feel. The result is a beautiful smile!
