Not just for permanent teeth, even baby (primary) teeth sometimes need fillings. Primary teeth play a critical part in your child’s development, affecting their ability to:

  • Chew food 
  • Develop strong jaw muscles and use of tongue
  • Speak properly
  • Maintain proper spacing for permanent teeth

When a tooth is cracked, disfigured, or decayed, a composite (white) filling may be used to restore the tooth to prevent more extensive breakage needing a crown or to keep a primary tooth in place until the permanent tooth erupts. Composite fillings are tooth-colored and can be closely matched to the existing tooth color, especially important in more visible areas of the mouth. These filings are very durable and should last many years, but fillings in permanent teeth will most likely eventually need replacing
