Dental Fillings (Tooth Colored Fillings) Milton, GA

Dental Fillings

Many children may have develop cavities that will need dental fillings during their formative years. Children’s teeth can be prone to decay, and their oral hygiene habits are not always perfect, leading to cavities. At Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry in Lawrenceville, we do our best to help our young patients prevent and avoid tooth decay with our preventive dental care options, but we also know some tooth decay may occur. We offer white dental fillings to restore teeth with cavities or other damage, protecting the function and appearance of your child’s smile.

Natural and Tooth-Colored Fillings

Silver fillings made from amalgam were once standard, especially for primary or baby teeth. That is no longer the case with the advanced options in natural and tooth-colored fillings. Composite dental resin is now the preferred option for filling cavities or repairing damaged teeth in children, whether or not the tooth is a primary, permanent, front or back tooth.

Composite resin has several advantages for dental fillings. The most noticeable is the color. Composite resin can be color-matched to your child’s tooth, keeping your child’s smile white. Even back molars can be seen when your child laughs, and white fillings hide dental repairs. Not only are composite resin dental fillings more aesthetically-pleasing, but they are durable and quick to use. The soft resin is used to fill cavities, then cured with a special light in just a few minutes. Once the filling surface is polished, it can be hard to detect the repair.

If your child needs a dental filling to repair a tooth, come see our team at Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry in Lawrenceville. We offer natural tooth-colored fillings to fix damaged or decayed teeth while protecting your child’s beautiful smile. Call our friendly staff to schedule your appointment.

Our Patients Reviews

I was skeptical about going back into braces. Since this was my second round, I wanted something fast and affordable. I met with Dr. Patel and he was fantastic! He gave me different options, he was very detailed and he answered all my questions.

Dr. Patel is a gem of a person. My daughter is getting braces dine and dr. and staff make sure my daughter is comfortable with the treatment. Dr. Patel explains entire process patiently and gives time to answer any question we may have. Our experience is great and I strongly refer Dr. Patel for yours or your kid's orthodontics needs...

An inviting waiting room with the front desk staff greeting me with a smile. Staff was very educated answering as many questions as possible since it was my first consultation for orthodontic help. Dr. Patel was VERY personable giving me all of the options for a plan of action the crowding of my teeth, and gave me all the information (time length, issues to be concerned with, financial differences) to help me choose the best plan for me. His details helped me to feel very comfortable with having to get braces as a female post 25+ years. I definitely recommend him as an orthodontist in the Milton/ North Atlanta area if you are looking for one. Best thing is that the first consultation was absolutely free!

Jagdeep S.

Very happy with Milton Dental Specialists. Having a dentist and orthodontist in one location makes dental exams easy while wearing braces. They have great hours and are very accommodating for kids in school who don’t want to miss school for orthodontic or dental work. Very happy with both the dentist and orthodontist.
