You want your children to be happy with their smiles, so they will freely show them to the world. Sometimes children can be self-conscious when teeth are discolored, worn, uneven, cracked or have unsightly gaps. White fillings, tooth bonding, gingival recontouring and frenectomies are types of cosmetic dentistry that can bring out a confident smile.
Tooth bonding is an option to correct tooth imperfections. With bonding, a plastic or resin composite material is bonded to an existing tooth that maintains the tooth’s original structure. Bonding can be used for filing gaps or to lengthen a tooth that is too small. The resin will match the natural color of your teeth.
Another cosmetic dental procedure is gingival recontouring, also called gum contouring or gum reshaping. If your gums are too high, too low or uneven, The Super Dentists can improve the appearance of your smile. Gingival recontouring is an in-office surgery that can be performed using lasers.
Frenectomy is a procedure to free the small tissue that connects the upper lip to the gum. It the frenulum is too tight, it can affect the way a child smiles. This simple procedure is common and performed with a laser in the office.
Ask The Super Dentists for a consultation, if there is anything about your child’s smile that you’d like to improve. The Super Dentists will recommend the best treatment and explain the procedure.
