The health of your child’s teeth is our main concern here at The Dental Specialists, but we also understand the importance of having an attractive smile that allows them to be confident. That’s why we offer a number of aesthetically-focused treatments. Whether your child has obvious stains, gaps, or chips, we can make them disappear so that your little one is always eager to show off their pearly whites. Give us a call today to learn more about their options.
When a tooth becomes extensively damaged by decay or trauma, we can usually fix it with a dental crown, restoring its strength and appearance at the same time. Here, instead of using metal crowns that would instantly stick out in a child’s mouth, we opt for ones made of 100% dental porcelain, which perfectly mimic the look of real enamel. With these crowns, we can repair distressed teeth and even enhance ones that are misshapen or uneven to give your child a more uniform and attractive smile.
This treatment is perfect for taking care of minor imperfections nice and fast, such as small chips, stains, or gaps. Your child’s dentist will apply a small amount of composite resin to their flawed tooth, and then they’ll shape it to make the tooth look like nothing was ever wrong with it. The resin will be specially matched to your child’s enamel, and the procedure itself is painless and can usually be completed in about an hour.
Are your child’s teeth noticeably stained? This could be due to their diet, oral hygiene practices, or the result of genetics or medication. Whatever the cause might be, we can brighten their teeth by up to eight shades with a professional whitening treatment. We offer both in-office and take-home options, both of which are designed to eliminate stains while also preserving your child’s enamel so they don’t develop sensitivity afterward.
