Fillings for kids in Bloomfield, NJ

At True Pediatric Dental Care of Bloomfield NJ, we understand that children’s dental care can be a bit intimidating. That’s why we strive to make sure our patients feel comfortable and secure when they come in for their appointments. We also want to make sure that the fillings used on our young patients are safe and effective. Here is some information about the different types of fillings available at our office so you can make an informed decision about your child’s dental care.

Composite Resin Fillings

Composite resin fillings are made from a combination of plastic and glass particles, which makes them strong yet flexible enough to withstand chewing forces without cracking or breaking down over time. They also blend in with natural tooth color, making them less noticeable than other types of filling materials such as silver amalgam or gold crowns. Composite resin fillings are ideal for small cavities because they bond directly to the tooth structure, creating a tight seal that prevents bacteria from entering into the cavity area again in the future.

Glass Ionomer Cement Fillings

Glass ionomer cement (GIC) is another type of filling material used by dentists on younger patients who may not yet have fully developed teeth.  GIC fillings also work well for patients with weakened enamel due to decay or trauma-related damage caused by grinding teeth, etc. GIC is composed mainly of acrylic acid and silicate glass powder which creates a strong bond between itself and tooth enamel while releasing fluoride ions into surrounding areas, thus helpinging to prevent further decay. GIC has proven effective against cavities but its main drawback is a lack of durability – GIC tends to wear away faster than composite resin materials.
