Here in our office as far as cosmetic dentistry, we're pediatrics, we don't do a lot. You'll see a lot of kids out there, little kids that have had a lot of dental work done. Sometimes they'll have silver crowns in the back or even in some cases silver fillings in the front. Almost all the time we do silver and we do white fillings, we also if a tooth in the back needs a crown, we also have the option of doing an all white crown which looks great. Then in the front same kind of things. If there's a bigger cavity that needs a crown in the front, they're all white and they look really good. We have a lot of good options as to avoid the silver smile that a lot of kids will get.
- Create a smile for your child that they’ll be proud to show off

Tooth-Colored Dental Crowns Repair Teeth Beautifully
Unlike other pediatric dentists who use metal options, we exclusively use white dental crowns made of zirconia. These metal-free dental crowns will seamlessly blend in with your child’s smile and can be used to conceal:
- Broken teeth
- Worn-down teeth
Thanks to the cutting-edge technology we use at Dentistry for Children, we can provide beautiful, strong dental crowns in a single visit! Your child will walk in needing smile improvements but walk out beaming and full of pride.
Teens Love Our Professional Teeth Whitening
Has your teenager recently had their braces removed only to discover their smile is now stained? If so, we offer two options for professional teeth whitening: take-home kits and in-office treatments.
Both options have their unique advantages. Treatment in our office delivers the fastest, most consistent results. However, it is more convenient for some teens (and their parents) to whiten their teeth at home on their own schedule, without having to make appointments with us. We will discuss both options with you, and you and your teen can decide which one works best for their situation.
Preventive Orthodontics Can Save You Time & Money
If you’d like to help your child avoid braces, you’re in the right place. In most cases, children should first be examined for orthodontic issues at around age 7.
If we discover any early alignment or bite issues, preventive orthodontics can often eliminate the need for braces later on, or else reduce your child’s orthodontic treatment time if they do need braces or teeth aligners.
Also, if your child loses a baby tooth before their adult tooth is ready to come in, we can use space maintainers to help ensure that every tooth in their smile comes in correctly. This simple option sure beats years of uncomfortable metal braces!
