Children's Dental Fillings & Crowns in Chevy Chase, MD

Treating Smiles with Compassionate Care

At Metropolitan Pediatric Dentistry, we understand that sometimes, despite our best efforts, children may need restorative dental care. Our restorative care services are designed to repair and maintain oral health, ensuring that every young smile is as healthy and vibrant as possible. Here’s an overview of our restorative care approach and the services we offer:

Why Restorative Care is Important

  • Addressing dental issues promptly ensures your child’s oral health and overall comfort.
  • Early restoration can prevent more serious problems down the line.
  • Proper care supports the healthy development of your child’s teeth, jaw, and mouth.

Our Restorative Care Services

  • Tooth-Colored Fillings: We use composite fillings that blend seamlessly with your child’s natural teeth.
  • Dental Crowns: When a tooth is severely damaged, a crown can protect and restore it to its normal function.
  • Pulp Therapy: Also known as a “baby root canal,” this treatment is used to treat the affected nerve of a decayed tooth.
  • Space Maintainers: If a primary tooth is lost prematurely, a space maintainer can help ensure proper spacing for permanent teeth.

Gentle and Effective Treatments

Our team specializes in providing gentle, effective treatment in a child-friendly environment. We understand that dental procedures can be intimidating for children, so we take every step to ensure their comfort and ease their anxieties. 

Utilizing the Latest Technology

We use state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to provide the best possible care. Our modern approach to restorative dentistry ensures efficient and effective treatment with your child’s comfort in mind. 

Collaborative Approach with Families

We believe in working closely with families to determine the best course of action for each child’s dental needs. Our team takes the time to explain treatment options and what to expect, ensuring that parents are fully informed and involved in their child’s dental care. 

Focus on Education and Prevention

In addition to restorative treatments, we emphasize the importance of ongoing preventative care and oral hygiene to avoid future dental issues.
