We can help you restore your little one’s smile, and keep their teeth healthy and strong for years to come.
At Brock & Casas Pediatric Dentistry, we offer restorative dentistry for children of all ages. Whether your little one has a cavity that needs a filling, or your child needs a dental crown to protect and preserve a damaged tooth, Dr. Brock and Dr. Casas are here to help. If you’re in or near Clear Lake, Webster, League City, or Friendswood, come to our office for comforting, patient-focused pediatric care.
Avoiding cavities through proper oral hygiene is always ideal, but if your child does end up getting a cavity, we have solutions to get them back to optimal health. We offer composite fillings for children of all ages at our office.
Composite fillings are an ideal solution for cavities for several reasons. First, composite fillings do not require the removal of as much tooth structure as mercury amalgam fillings. This means that more of your child’s enamel and dentin can be preserved during the procedure.
In addition, composite fillings also bond more tightly to the enamel, which strengthens the structure of the tooth. Additionally, we can match the color of a composite filling to your child’s tooth, which helps ensure that their dental restoration looks and feels natural.
Crowns For Children And Teens
If your child’s tooth has been severely damaged by untreated tooth decay or an oral injury, it may need to be protected with a dental crown. Crowns are used to cover up and protect remaining enamel and strengthen the tooth.
For younger children who still have their baby (primary) teeth, we typically use stainless steel crowns. Stainless steel crowns effectively prevent further damage and decay to the tooth. Because baby teeth are meant to fall out naturally, this is usually the best option.
For older children or teenagers who may need a dental crown, Dr. Brock and Dr. Casas typically recommend porcelain crowns. Porcelain crowns are made of a special tooth-colored ceramic material, which means they look and feel just like a natural tooth. Porcelain crowns last a long time, and they can completely restore your child’s smile without the discoloration or unnatural appearance of a gold or stainless steel metal filling.
The crown placement process is minimally invasive, and we offer sedation to help keep your child calm and comfortable throughout the entire procedure. You can always trust that our team will take care of your little ones as if they were our own.
