Pediatric Dental Fillings in San Jose

We provide gentle and effective cavity treatment and dental fillings to restore your child's oral health.

How it Works

What are Pediatric Dental Fillings?

Pediatric dental fillings are a common treatment for cavities in children’s teeth used to repair teeth that have been damaged by cavities. Our expert, board-certified Silicon Valley pediatric dentistry team uses advanced techniques, including laser treatment, for cavity repair. This laser dentistry technology allows for more precise and comfortable treatment, minimizing discomfort and ensuring a quick recovery for your child.
We also use tooth-colored composite resin, which blends seamlessly with the natural tooth color, making any work virtually undetectable. This material is durable, requires less tooth preparation than traditional metal fillings, and enhances the appearance of teeth due to its translucent quality.

How to Prepare Your Child for Dental Fillings

Preparing your child for dental fillings can help reduce anxiety and ensure a smoother experience.

Talk to your child about the procedure in a calm and reassuring manner. Let them know that the dentist will numb the area around the tooth so they won't feel any pain during the treatment.
Before the procedure, children are given time to familiarize themselves with our office, and if needed, we offer oral sedation or laughing gas to alleviate anxiety.
It's also important to follow any pre-operative instructions provided by our dental team. This may include avoiding food and drink for a certain period before the procedure.
The area around the tooth is numbed with an anesthetic, decay is removed, and the filling is placed and hardened with a special light. Any necessary adjustments can then be made.
While children may feel some discomfort during the procedure, it is generally quick and painless. Sensitivity typically diminishes over time.
Discussing the procedure with your child can help prepare them, and at Pediatric Dentistry of San Jose, we strive to ensure a comfortable experience for every child.
