At Bear Pediatric Dentistry, we realize that no one is perfect. Cavities, dental injuries, and more can happen to your child’s teeth despite everyone’s best efforts. With us, you don’t have to worry about judgement—you’ll only get kindness and compassion along with practical solutions for restorative dentistry in McKinney, TX. Dr. Bear offers treatments that bring back their teeth’s original strength and beauty, so it’ll be as if nothing happened! Does your child have teeth that could use some TLC? Give us a call and schedule an appointment.
Thanks to advanced materials, we have the ability to restore the entire visible portion of the tooth after it has been decayed or damaged. Depending on the location of the tooth in their mouth, we can use zirconia (white crowns) that look and function just like the real thing! In fact, you may forget which teeth are natural and which aren’t. These durable restorations can last for years to come and allow your child to enjoy a confident, healthy smile again.
In the past, small cavities had to be filled with amalgam, which meant getting a large silvery glob on the tooth. Now, we use more conservative composite resin. This material allows us to preserve more of the tooth and works to protect against sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures. Plus, we can color the filling to match your child’s surrounding tooth exactly. Composite resin can also be used to re-sculpt small or oddly shaped teeth for a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Whether your child needs a simple filling or a new dental crown, we can provide a restoration that contains absolutely no metal. Not only can this help those with metal sensitivities, but it also gives your child a more seamless repair after a dental injury or cavity. That way, they don’t have to worry about their tooth standing out or attracting the wrong kind of attention. All anyone will ever see is a beautiful, confident smile.
If your child has deep-set stains, we can provide powerful whitening products that you simply won’t find available online or in stores. As a result, with our treatment, their teeth can brighten by as much as eight shades in a short period of time. Whether your kiddo is getting ready for the big school dance, an important recital, or senior pictures, teeth whitening can give them the confidence to let their smile shine.
