Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures to Improve Your Child’s Smile
Like with adults, there are popular cosmetic procedures for kids that are without much recovery time and are relatively painless. Whether looking to improve a child’s smile or rejuvenate the teeth’s natural whiteness after having braces removed, our office offers services to help with both.
What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is made of resin, which is like a durable plastic material. The tooth-colored material is applied and hardened using a special light, which is what attaches the material to the tooth itself.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Bonding?
Decayed, broken or chipped teeth are the main reasons parents will seek out dental bonding to repair their child’s teeth. Dental bonding also allows for teeth to be reshaped to better perfect a child’s smile.
Is there Recovery Time Associated with Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding typically only takes one session to complete, and the recovery time is minimal. Children are advised to avoid biting fingernails or chewing on pens or pencils as the dental bondings could chip. If this happens, a simple touch-up procedure can be done to fix the issue.
Why Should I Have my Child's Teeth Whitened?
After braces are removed, some children may have yellowish stains on their teeth. More effective than at-home whitening kits, children can come to the office to have their smiles improved in one session.
