Cosmetic dentistry is a type of oral health care that focuses on improving the appearance of your child’s smile. While cosmetic dentistry prioritizes the way your child’s teeth look, these treatments also promote good oral health and tooth function.
Teeth that are aligned and fit together properly are easier to care for and clean. When your child has a cracked tooth, their bite gradually changes over time, which can increase their risk of tooth erosion, jaw pain, and more.
Aesthetic treatments keep your child’s teeth looking healthy and straight. Common reasons children and teens need cosmetic dentistry include:
Without treatment, many of the above cosmetic dental concerns eventually threaten your child’s oral health.
The experienced team at Brody Pediatric Dentistry performs a full range of cosmetic dentistry services for children and teens, including:
A dental crown is a custom-made cap shaped like the visible portion of a tooth. It fits directly over your child’s tooth to restore its shape, size, and color. Dental crowns also protect your child’s teeth from additional damage.
If your child has a chipped tooth or gapped teeth, cosmetic bonding is a quick, effective solution to repair their smile. The team applies thin layers of composite resin to the treatment area and hardens it with a curing light to repair the damage.
Teeth whitening uses professional-grade materials to remove deep stains from your child’s teeth. Most teeth whitening solutions contain hydrogen peroxide to safely lift and dissolve stains.
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite resin that adhere to the surface of your child’s teeth. These restorations can change the shape and size of broken, cracked, or misshapen teeth.
Orthodontics straighten teeth and correct bite problems. By straightening your child’s smile, orthodontics also make their teeth easier to clean and floss for optimal oral health.
