Dental Fillings

At Montclair Pediatric Dentistry, we recognize that dental cavities are a common concern among children. When it comes to addressing cavities and restoring dental health, dental fillings are a fundamental solution. Dental fillings serve a crucial role in preventing cavities from progressing further and preserving the integrity of your child’s teeth. We offer a range of filling materials, with a strong emphasis on tooth-colored composite fillings. These composite fillings blend seamlessly with your child’s natural teeth, ensuring both a functional and aesthetically pleasing result.

Tooth-colored composite fillings offer several advantages. Firstly, they provide a discreet solution, making it virtually impossible to discern the presence of a filling. This aesthetic benefit is particularly important for children, as it helps maintain their confidence in their smile. Additionally, composite fillings bond securely to the tooth structure, requiring less removal of healthy tooth material compared to traditional amalgam fillings. Furthermore, composite fillings do not contain mercury, addressing concerns some may have about amalgam fillings. We prioritize your child’s comfort and well-being and are committed to delivering the best possible dental care, tailored to your child’s unique needs and preferences.

At Montclair Pediatric Dentistry, we are committed to preserving the health and vitality of your child’s teeth. When your child experiences tooth decay or damage that affects the nerve of the tooth, a pulpotomy/pulpectomy may be recommended. This treatment, often referred to as a “baby root canal,” is a tried and true method for saving a damaged tooth and relieving pain.

We take great care to ensure that your child is comfortable throughout the process, using gentle techniques and the latest advancements in pediatric dental care. Our goal with a pulpotomy/pulpectomy is to treat your child’s tooth in a minimally invasive way, preserving it until it’s ready to fall out naturally and be replaced by a permanent tooth.

The health of your child’s teeth is essential for their overall well-being, and at Montclair Pediatric Dentistry, we strive to provide the best possible outcomes with treatments like pulpotomy/pulpectomy. We are here to answer any questions and to guide you through the process of caring for your child’s oral health.

Dental Crowns

At Montclair Pediatric Dentistry, we offer a variety of dental crown options to cater to the unique needs of our young patients. We proudly feature white zirconia crowns, renowned for their superior strength and natural appearance, ensuring your child’s smile remains as vibrant and authentic as possible. These crowns are meticulously matched to the surrounding teeth, offering an aesthetic and durable solution for dental restoration.

Stainless steel crowns (SSCs) are proven for their durability and functionality. SSCs are an optimal choice for maintaining oral function and withstanding the rigors of everyday use, especially in the posterior molars.

We understand the importance of both appearance and practicality when it comes to your child’s dental health. At Montclair Pediatric Dentistry, we prioritize your child’s specific needs, balancing the aesthetic appeal with the necessary strength and durability. Our team is dedicated to ensuring that every crown is not only visually pleasing but also serves its purpose effectively for long-lasting dental health.
