Dental Fillings and Crowns


Dental fillings or commonly known as ‘bondings’ are one of the most common restorative procedures used by pediatric dentists. Dental bonding is a procedure used to treat dental decay with a tooth-colored resin material. The procedure is esthetic and treats small cavities for your little one.

What are the benefits?
  • It helps to hide all the common dental imperfections like chips, cracks, or small cavities.
  • The procedure involves the use of composite resin or glass ionomer, which is a better alternative to amalgam fillings (silver). These are BPA free and mercury free.
  • It is a safe and effective procedure in all ages of children.
  • The procedure is quick and efficient.
  • It protects your child’s teeth without hampering their facial aesthetics.
  • Tooth-colored fillings are durable and can last for several years.
  • It leaves most of the healthy tooth structure intact.

Dental crowns or commonly known as ‘caps’ are generally used to treat larger cavities and/or to strengthen a weaker tooth. It also helps to restore the shape of the teeth in some cases. Different dental crowns are available for children, such as: pre-formed stainless steel crowns, strip crowns, and zirconia crowns. Each of them has its unique benefits and methods of use.

What are the benefits?
  • Crowns help with chewing food properly during their critical developmental years.
  • Crowns are also crucial to maintain space and hold primary teeth until permanent teeth are ready to erupt.
  • Crowns help in restoring larger cavities or cracks in teeth. However, every tooth needs an evaluation prior to treatment.
