Cosmetic dentistry for kids is similar to cosmetic dentistry for adults. In fact, the procedures are nearly the same. Cosmetic dentistry is a way to repair tooth decay or damage along with optimizing the appearance of your child’s teeth. It can give them the beautiful smile they deserve in a comfortable, relaxing environment.
Some of the many cosmetic dentistry services available at Longhorn Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics include:
Fillings are dental restorations used to repair tooth decay or damage. Longhorn Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics providers offer mercury-free dentistry services. That means they use composite restorations, or white fillings, that blend in perfectly with your child’s teeth instead of silver fillings containing mercury, which is a neurotoxin.
Crowns help restore teeth that are decayed, cracked, chipped, discolored, or missappen. They fit over the top of teeth like caps. Your child’s dentist first cleans and repairs the tooth. They secure teeth white crowns or traditional crowns over the top of a tooth with special cement. Crowns feel, look, and function just like natural teeth.
If your child has a misaligned bite or crooked teeth, children's braces can optimize the appearance and function of their smile. The Longhorn Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics team offers traditional children’s brace containing lightweight brackets and wires and nearly invisible Invisalign® clear aligners to shift teeth into a desirable alignment over time.
To find out which cosmetic dental procedure is best for your child, the Longhorn Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics specialists review their dental history, take digital X-rays, and examine their teeth and gums. The team tailors each treatment to match your child’s personalized needs and desired outcome.
The Longhorn Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics team offers sedation dentistry, including local anesthesia, general anesthesia, and laughing gas, to help your child relax during procedures. They also provide custom-fit mouthguards to protect teeth from grinding at night and trauma associated with contact sports.
