Smiles matter, probably more than we realize. Volumes of research confirm the influential role of smiles on our relationships and our self-esteem. This affects children just as much as adults. If you’re confident, you smile more. If you smile more, you feel more confident. But what if your child is embarrassed to flash their smile because they have stains or chipped teeth? It becomes a psychological short-circuit, with effects that may carry on throughout their life. Fortunately, a growing range of options opens doors for your child to enjoy a beautiful smile. And Dr. Seiler’s passion for enhancing your child’s smile brings you the best in modern dentistry.
There are many reasons a child may need cosmetic dentistry. Sickness in infancy or a condition of overexposure to fluoride, called fluorosis, may stain the teeth with bright white spots. A chipped tooth from a fall or even a missing or misshapen tooth can be temporarily fixed until a child is done growing when a more permanent restoration can be placed.
COSMETIC DENTAL TREATMENTS CAN:
Brighten stained or discolored teeth
Repair cracks or fractures
Fill gaps between teeth
Cavities, chips, and fractures can occur on any tooth surface throughout the mouth. Composite filling material provides a versatile solution to many common problems while giving the appearance of a natural tooth. Blended into a prepared area, the composite polishes to a smooth, undetectable surface.
Damaged teeth might seem hopeless, but there's often still a solid foundation that leaves you with options. A crown, or cap, can bring a compromised tooth back to full function. And with modern porcelains, you'll probably have a difficult time trying to find where the crown ends and the tooth starts.
Nothing boosts your confidence like a terrific smile. But when yellow stain dims the brilliance, it's time to give it a lift. Professional whitening systems provide the ultimate in whitening results, quickly removing years of discoloration with quality controlled materials.
