Smiles play an influential role in a child’s relationships and self-esteem just as much as for adults. If your child is self-conscious to flash their smile because they have chipped teeth or stains, then it could create psychological problems that might carry over throughout their life. At Unique Kids Pediatric Dentistry, we provide a wide range of cosmetic dentistry options for your child to enable them to enjoy a beautiful smile.
Why Should Children Undergo Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures?
There are several reasons a child may need cosmetic dentistry. Sickness during infancy or a condition called fluorosis (an excessive amount of fluoride) may stain the teeth with glaring white spots. A chipped fractured tooth from a fall or even a misshapen or missing tooth can be temporarily fixed until a child has grown fully or when a more permanent restoration can be secured.
What Are the Cosmetic Dentistry Options For Children?
As a child’s teeth are still growing, it is vital to know your options. Many children who have still developing mouths can benefit from various cosmetic dentistry options. Dr. Roshan Roshannejad will work closely with you to ensure that your child is eligible for cosmetic dentistry options and help determine the correct treatments.
There are several minimally invasive cosmetic dentistry options for children, such as:
Tooth decay and cavities, common in young children, lead to tooth loss. We fill the gap of the missing tooth with dental flippers that look exactly like the original teeth. These teeth correctly adjust in the sockets and are durable.
Children can benefit from dental bonding to fix decayed teeth while restoring the natural shape, color, and feel.
Veneers can be a great solution to hide the imperfections of teeth. The advantage of no-prep veneers is the minimally invasive procedure as no tooth structure is removed, and the veneers can be easily removed.
Improving your child’s self-esteem with teeth whitening can provide them with the confidence they need to succeed. Developing mouths can sometimes be a complicated process for young children or teens. Providing them with a vibrant whiter smile can make a difference in their overall self-image.
Crowded and crooked teeth may be unappealing and may get a child to lose confidence in them. We can guide teeth to remain straight and avoid the need for braces until their permanent teeth replace their baby teeth.
