Whenever picture day rolls around, are you concerned about your child’s smile in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania? Don’t worry. It’s commonplace for parents to want the best for their kids, especially when it comes to their pearly whites. We hear it from our clients all the time.
However, if your child has had a difficult time adopting diligent dental habits, such as brushing regularly and avoiding candy, you may want to consider a smile makeover for your child.
We can transform an bland smile into an outstanding one. But how? There are many directions and options to consider.
Often the first option to think about is teeth whitening. Teeth whitening helps reverse yellow and stained teeth back to a refreshed complexion. The American Dental Association explains that, “whitening products contain one of two tooth bleaches, hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide…. [that] break stains into smaller pieces, which makes the color less concentrated and your teeth brighter.”
If whitening doesn’t resolve your child’s stained teeth the way you want to, dental bonding is another route to consider. The process is fairly simple. It includes applying a composite plastic resin to one or more neglected teeth. The resin blend in and bonds your teeth, achieving a fresh, healthy smile even when a tooth was chipped, cracked, or just plain yellow.
We can also address missing or damaged teeth with dental implants. This product provides a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and of course, function like natural teeth. They will blend right in with the rest of your child’s smile.
While you should absolutely reinforce good dental hygiene to your child, you can also help reverse the damage at our Philadelphia office. Give our office a ring to schedule a consultation on how to improve your child’s dental health. Don’t wait until it’s too late!
