The Importance Of Children’s Cosmetic Dentistry

Pediatric Cosmetic Dentistry in New Caney Texas

Cosmetic dentistry has long been viewed as a viable method for helping adults achieve a smile they can be proud of. However, that method can easily be extended to kids as well. Pediatric cosmetic dentistry offers a growing range of options for kids who want to enjoy a beautiful smile and prevent more serious dental problems later on down the line. Dr. Roshan Roshannejad and the Unique Kids Pediatric Dentistry team know that no matter what dental issues may arise, it’s never too early to visit them.

Why Cosmetic Pediatric Dentistry Is Important

Smiles are one of the first things that people notice about each other, so they matter greatly. This goes for children, adolescents, and adults. A healthy smile can boost confidence, and having confidence makes you smile even more. But, if your child is too embarrassed to show their teeth because of dental issues? It can become a psychological trigger that follows them for years, affecting their self-esteem and eventually their life. 

It’s important to maintain proper oral hygiene in children. Unfortunately, it’s not always possible. An overabundance of sugary treats and drinks combined with a lack of oversight to ensure that oral hygiene methods are being followed correctly can lead to several dental problems. That’s why it’s vital to see a dentist in order to prevent the development of these issues and treat the problems that do arise to keep your child happy and confident in their smile.

 

What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Many oral health issues can affect the appearance of your teeth and gums without negatively impacting their function or threatening your overall health. And they can affect children just as easily as adults. For these issues, cosmetic dentistry is the solution. If any issues affect the health or integrity of your smile, restorative dentistry would be the more appropriate option for solving them.

A  cosmetic dentist works to correct and improve the overall appearance of your mouth, teeth, gums, and smile. Children’s teeth and mouths are still in the process of growing and developing, so it’s important to know what options are available for pediatric cosmetic dentistry. There are several common cosmetic procedures performed by the doctors at Unique Kids Pediatric Dentistry in New Caney, TX, including:

  • Dental flippers, which are appliances used to mimic the appearance of your teeth.
  • Dental bonding, a tooth-colored resin applied to cover any minor imperfections or flaws.
  • Tooth whitening
  • Resin Infiltration (ICON), a minimally invasive restorative procedure used to treat white-spot lesions on your teeth caused by tooth enamel defects.
  • Cosmetic crowns, including pre-veneered, zirconia (non-metal), and resin.  

Many of these procedures are quick and minimally invasive, not requiring shots, numbing, or drilling. Be sure to consult and work closely with your dentist to determine the best treatment option for your child.

What Conditions Can Children’s Cosmetic Dentistry Treat?

There are many conditions and circumstances that can damage kids’ teeth. Fortunately, there is a cosmetic dentistry option for treating every issue that may come up. Some of the most common conditions that our dental professionals can treat or prevent with cosmetic dentistry include:

 

  • Tooth staining or discoloration

  • Gaps between teeth

The Cost Of Cosmetic Dentistry 

Costs for cosmetic dentistry vary depending on the severity of the condition being treated and the procedure used to treat it. For many people, insurance is a major concern and a determining factor in the level of dental care they receive. However, that is not the case at Unique Kids Pediatric Dentistry in New Caney, TX. We work with patients who don’t have insurance to get their kids the best possible dental care.
