Our Approach to Improving Kids’ Smiles
GENTLE DENTAL CARE AND EXPERT GUIDANCE
At Pediatric Dental Specialists–North Platte, our approach revolves around providing gentle and compassionate care. Each and every team member is experienced in working with children and understands the unique needs of our young patients. We foster a reassuring environment and guide children through each step of the process. We love creating fun experiences so that they view their dental visits as positive adventures rather than boring chores. Partnering with parents, we support children’s dental care journeys so they can have healthy teeth for life.
Tooth-Colored Fillings for Kids
NATURAL SHADES FOR A CONFIDENT GRIN
Tooth-colored fillings, also known as composite fillings, are a great solution for kids who have minor tooth damage. They can fix cavities, chips, or discoloration. We color match the composite resin material to blend in perfectly with your child’s smile. This is one of the main reasons they are a popular choice in cosmetic dentistry compared to traditional amalgam fillings. The filling process is relatively quick and simple. Your child’s pediatric dentist will clean the affected area and bond the composite material in place, shaping it so it looks and feels natural. With proper oral hygiene and care, tooth-colored fillings can last for many years.
Pediatric Dental Crowns
CAREFULLY CRAFTED RESTORATIONS FOR LITTLE SMILES
When a child’s tooth is severely decayed or damaged, a dental crown can restore stability and function and protect the tooth when a simple filling will not suffice. At Pediatric Dental Specialists–North Platte, we provide two options for dental crowns: tooth-colored crowns and stainless steel crowns. Stainless steel crowns are common choices when restoring a child’s baby molars. Their strength makes them particularly useful for children who grind their teeth or have a heavy bite. Tooth-colored crowns, in contrast, are popular from an aesthetic perspective because they look just like the color and shape of natural teeth. Regardless of which material is necessary, we make sure to properly adjust every pediatric dental crown to ensure a comfortable, natural feel.
BRIGHTEN YOUR CHILD’S SMILE.
Even kids can suffer from discolored teeth. Consuming dark foods and drinks and having poor oral hygiene habits are all contributing factors. Teeth whitening works to lift deep external stains and bring a smile back to brightness. At Pediatric Dental Specialists–North Platte, we provide in-office teeth whitening for our young patients. First, we remove any plaque and then apply a professional-strength whitening gel to their teeth. Next, our team activates the gel under a controlled light source to gently lift stains and whiten the teeth. Patients will notice immediate results and a significantly brighter smile. Repeat treatments may be recommended to maintain results. Your child’s pediatric dental team will discuss the best path forward for their individual needs.
Pediatric Partial Dentures
MAKING A SMILE WHOLE AGAIN
Pediatric partial dentures are dental appliances specifically designed to replace prematurely lost baby teeth in children. Partials also help make sure the remaining teeth stay in their correct positions. They play an important role as premature gaps can hinder speech development and cause eating difficulty, as well as misalignment and bite issues when the adult teeth come through.
The first step toward pediatric partial dentures is to take impressions of your child’s mouth. It’s important that our team creates a partial denture that fits both precisely and comfortably so your child can eat and speak normally. We also customize each denture to ensure it matches the color, size and shape of your child’s natural teeth. Once ready, we will carefully adjust your child’s new partial dentures so that they properly fill the unwanted gaps and restore their smile beautifully.
