What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry addresses the appearance of the teeth. Cosmetic imperfections in children’s teeth can make them feel self-conscious or negatively impact their self esteem. Procedures and treatments such as teeth whitening, micro-abrasion/resin infiltration, and cosmetic bonding can make noticeable improvements in your child’s smile.

Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry offers many benefits for children, such as:

Improved smile. Cosmetic dentistry can improve your child’s smile so that it looks more natural.

Increased confidence. When children feel better about their smile they gain confidence and smile more often.

Non-invasive. Most cosmetic procedures are non-invasive. No anesthesia is required for the majority of cosmetic treatments.

Fast results. Cosmetic procedures and treatments provide almost immediate results in most cases.

Dental health benefits. Some cosmetic procedures also improve the health of the teeth.

Procedures Offered

We provide the following cosmetic dentistry procedures for kids:

At home teeth whitening. Children’s teeth may develop stains or become dull due to a variety of causes from artificial coloring in food and drinks to orthodontic treatment. We provide convenient at-home teeth whitening treatment that works in as little as 2 weeks.

Micro-abrasion. Stubborn stains that don’t respond to teeth whitening treatments or weak enamel spots (hypoplasia) may be removable with micro-abrasion, a procedure that is capable of removing stains or uneven spots on tooth enamel.

Cosmetic Bonding. Teeth that are chipped, fractured, or decayed can be reshaped with cosmetic bonding, which uses composite material to fill in missing tooth enamel.

Why Choose Akoya Pediatric Dentistry?

We believe that all children have beautiful smiles. But when cosmetic imperfections cause children to feel self-conscious about their smile, we are glad to help. The cosmetic treatments we provide are designed to make the teeth look more natural so that children present their best smile now and in the future. Through our compassionate, caring attitude we approach cosmetic issues delicately and respectfully.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry

Is teeth whitening treatment safe for children’s teeth?
Our at-home teeth whitening treatments are gentle and effective. They whiten the teeth gradually over the course of a few weeks until the desired shade of white has been achieved. Following American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry guidelines, we recommend waiting until your child is in permanent dentition before considering full arch whitening treatment.
Why do children need cosmetic dentistry?
It may seem that cosmetic dentistry is more widely requested by adults, but children and teens also care about the way their teeth look. Permanent teeth start coming in during childhood and will last for the rest of their life. Cosmetic improvements can increase self-image and confidence now and in the future.
How long does cosmetic bonding last?
In some cases cosmetic bonding can last forever. When it doesn’t, touch-ups may be needed after the first application.
Is cosmetic dentistry covered by insurance?
Most cosmetic procedures are not covered by dental insurance because they are not considered medically necessary. There are still ways to make cosmetic dentistry affordable, such as financing and payment plans.
Will micro-abrasion damage the tooth enamel?
Micro-abrasion strips away a very thin layer of enamel to remove stains and imperfections. The enamel remains strong and the teeth are still safe from decay with good dental hygiene habits and regular professional dental care.
At what age can a child get cosmetic dentistry?
There is not a definite age that a child must reach to receive cosmetic dentistry treatments and procedures. The decision is based on the need and the child, as well as the preference of the parents. The top priority is always the health of the teeth over their appearance.
Why is cosmetic dentistry needed after orthodontics?
From braces to clear aligners, orthodontic treatment can lead to staining and uneven coloring of the teeth. Teeth whitening and micro-abrasion may be used to remove stains and left behind orthodontic adhesives.
Can cosmetic dentistry improve the health of your teeth?
Although the primary purpose of cosmetic dentistry is to improve the appearance of your teeth, some procedures can also have dental health benefits. For example, cosmetic bonding helps to protect the enamel of your teeth from decay and further damage.
