Filling cavities in children’s teeth can help restore teeth damaged by tooth decay. There are several types of fillings like gold, silver, plastic, and porcelain that can protect children’s smiles.
Find out what to expect during a cavity filling, as well as how to prevent more cavities from forming, and where to find affordable care.
When your child has a cavity filled, his or her dentist will first check for and remove any signs of tooth decay. After, the dentist will clean the area and fill the tooth by using one of several filling materials:
The cost of filling a cavity in a child is typically between $50 to $90 (plus the cost of a dental exam), depending on your location, the state of decay, what type of filling material is used, and which tooth is getting filled.
