What will fix the cavities?

There has been a movement towards white fillings, so if the cavity is relatively small, it can be fixed with a tooth colored filling. If the cavity is so large that the nerve is involved, a pulpotomy (the removal of the top portion of the nerve) is performed, and a stainless steel crown will be placed on top of the tooth. A white colored crown is available but is not as likely to last the lifetime of the baby tooth and usually costs more.
