Your smile is one of your child’s most important features. Dentistry is continuously evolving and with a variety of advanced treatment options, achieving a beautiful, healthy, aesthetic smile is made easy for patients of all ages.
Bonding is an essential part of dentistry today. It is integral to most every procedure. Most importantly, it has given the dentist the ability to conservatively restore and improve the smiles we are entrusted with. Whether I need to repair a fractured central incisor, improve the shape or color of a malformed or stained tooth or close unwanted spaces, bonding is the tool used to create the appealing smiles we all strive for.
Another cosmetic tool at our disposal is the moving of teeth to positions that both work better and look better. Orthodontic treatment today is commonplace for our children because we want them to have the best opportunities for health and success. A winning smile will not only make others feel good about you but will make you feel good about yourself. Coupled with the proper bite this will be the foundation for excellent dental health for life. Today braces can mean starting early with appliances meant to minimize later problems and treatments, traditional wires and hardware, or invisible aligners such as Invisalign.
For many adults today, naturally white teeth are not white enough. Indeed, even the teens are often not happy with the color of their teeth. Another cosmetic technique available to us is bleaching. Properly done this is a safe way to brighten the smiles of our young adults. However, it should be done under the guidance of dental professionals to ensure healthy and desired results.
Hygiene and Dental Care
Finally, the most important way to ensure that your children’s teeth and gums look their best is to take good care of these smiles. This means teaching and maintaining good oral hygiene habits early on so that these are integrated into their lifestyles. It means regular visits to the pediatric dentist to make sure these developing smiles are being watched and cared for. It means protecting them with sealants, fluoride, and athletic mouth guards when necessary. Great smiles need our nurturing.
