Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

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.

What can cosmetic dentistry treat?

Aesthetic treatments keep your child’s teeth looking healthy and straight. Common reasons children and teens need cosmetic dentistry include:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Large fillings
  • Gapped teeth
  • Teeth worn by grinding
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Missing teeth

Without treatment, many of the above cosmetic dental concerns eventually threaten your child’s oral health.

What are the most common cosmetic dentistry treatments?

The experienced team at Brody Pediatric Dentistry performs a full range of cosmetic dentistry services for children and teens, including:

Dental crowns

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.

Bonding

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

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

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

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.
