Unfortunately, even with good oral hygiene, your child can get a cavity. They most often occur in the back teeth, which are harder to reach with a toothbrush and, as such, get ignored a bit when brushing. The good news is that our South Manhattan pediatric dentist, Dr. Kherani, uses tooth-colored composite resin fillings to repair decay. Just like silver amalgam fillings, the "white fillings" fill the cavities and prevent further tooth destruction. However, they are matched to the color of your child's teeth, making them virtually invisible!

What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings Made of ?
Tooth-colored fillings are a combination of resins, which are quite durable, last a long time and prevent further decay. We recommend the use of sealants on your child's teeth as a way to prevent cavities! .

If your child needs the services of a downtown NYC pediatric dentist for routine care, trauma or tooth extraction, please call us at 212-267-0029 to schedule your child's appointment.
