Bonding is a conservative way to repair slightly chipped, discolored, or crooked teeth.
Crowns are a restorative procedure used to improve a tooth’s shape or to strengthen a tooth.

There are times when it is necessary to remove a tooth.
Traditional dental restoratives, or fillings, may include gold, porcelain, or composite.
Fluoride is effective in preventing cavities and tooth decay and in preventing plaque from building up and hardening on the tooth’s surface.
Whether your child wears braces or not, protecting his or her smile while playing sports is essential. Mouthguards help protect the teeth and gums from injury.
If your child often wakes up with jaw pain, earaches, or headaches, your child may have a common condition called “bruxism“.
Regular Exam and Cleanings
Regular exams are an important part of maintaining your child’s oral health.
Composite dental fillings, or resin restoratives, are used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, or wear.
In the past, if your child had a permanent tooth with a diseased nerve, he or she would probably lose that tooth.
Sometimes brushing is not enough, especially when it comes to those hard-to-reach spots in your child’s mouth.
If your child’s tooth has come out too soon because of decay or an accident, it is important to maintain the space to prevent future space loss and dental problems when permanent teeth begin to come in.
Stainless Steel Crowns
Sometimes when children get a cavity that involves more than two surfaces of the tooth, a filling may not be adequate and a crown will need to be placed on the tooth to restore it.
Your child no longer needs to hide his or her smile because of gaps, chips, stains, or misshapen teeth.
Wisdom teeth are types of molars found in the very back of your child’s mouth. These teeth usually appear in late teens or early twenties, but they may become impacted (fail to erupt) due to lack of room in the jaw or angle of entry.
