Despite every parent’s best efforts, it’s still fairly common for children to develop cavities or chipped/cracked teeth. Fortunately, fixing these types of problems is nice and easy when you partner with Wash Park Pediatric Dentistry. Dr. Patrick can use strong, tooth-colored materials to rebuild your child’s teeth so that it looks like nothing was ever wrong with them in the first place. If your child’s smile needs a little TLC, don’t hesitate to contact us today for restorative dentistry in Denver, CO.
If your child has a severely decayed or broken tooth or hypoplastic enamel, Dr. Patrick can cover it with a dental crown that completely renews its appearance and strength at the same time. Also known as “caps,” crowns help protect vulnerable dental structure while also restoring a tooth’s function so your child will be able to eat, speak, and smile with complete confidence. Our dental office can place crowns made of medical grade stainless steel and white tooth-colored zirconia ceramic on both front and back teeth as needed.
For smaller cavities, Dr. Patrick can replace damaged tooth structure using a composite resin filling that is color-matched to your child’s unique smile. That way, the filling will seamlessly blend into the tooth, meaning they'll still see their own teeth and smile. Even better, these fillings help preserve natural dental structure which means a strong and long-lasting repair.
If your child has darkened or stained teeth due to medication or simple genetics, a quick whitening treatment can easily make their teeth six to eight shades brighter, tremendously boosting their confidence in the process. As a bonus, we find that whitening a child’s teeth often causes them to take better care of their oral health since they want to maintain their new shade!
