When teeth become lost or damaged, dental restorations are used to restore their appearance and function. The oral care experts at Gentle Touch Smiles for Kids take great pride in providing children with outstanding dental restorations that leave teeth looking natural and healthy.
At Gentle Touch Smiles for Kids, we offer many types of dental restorations for children, including:
- Fillings: The most common type of dental restoration, fillings are used to restore the appearance and function of teeth with minor damage. Most fillings are used to repair the damage caused by cavities. Receiving a dental filling is a minor procedure that can usually be completed in just one visit to our office.
- Inlays and Onlays: Slightly more intricate than a standard filling, inlays and onlays are restoration methods that are used to repair teeth with slightly more damage. A major benefit of inlays and onlays is that they retain more of a tooth’s original structure than a restoration with a dental crown.
- Crowns: Dental crowns can be used to cover a severely damaged or missing tooth in order to restore its function and appearance. Our dental crowns look natural, and they should last a lifetime with proper care.
- Bridges: Dental bridges are used when a child is missing multiple teeth. A bridge is comprised of natural-looking prosthetic teeth that are supported by natural teeth that are still inside the mouth. Depending on the type of dental bridge, they can either be removable or permanently fixed inside the mouth.
