At Smiling With Love Pediatric Dentistry, we will help you restore your child’s smile. The restorative process is done with your child in mind to make sure they are comfortable and understand the process. Our pediatric dentist will work with you to determine the best treatment for your child. Here are some procedures we can recommend:
Your child’s permanent teeth are often in need of some dental work. If you have noticed that your child has a chip or missing tooth, we can help provide you with a tooth-colored filling to fill in the gap. This will make it easier for them to chew and eat food as they get older. We use a material called resin bonding to help restore your child’s smile. It is also a great option for putting a temporary filling in your child’s tooth.
Stainless Steal Crown (SSC)
After a baby root canal, or if there is substantial damage to a rear baby tooth from cavities or trauma, a Stainless Steel or White Zirconia Crown may be advised for your kid. When a traditional filling is deemed insufficient to safeguard the tooth until it falls out naturally, they are recommended. (Remember that baby molars don’t fall out until you’re 11-14 years old.) The distinction between stainless steel and white crowns is primarily cosmetic, but the advantages and disadvantages of each crown can be explored with your child’s doctor before it is placed.
