Your child may have tooth damage or other flaws that prevent them from enjoying their smile. In such cases, our pediatric dentist can provide cosmetic treatment to enhance the appearance of your child’s teeth. Composite dental veneers are one of the cosmetic services offered at Sparkle Pediatric Dentistry. With veneers, you can conceal imperfections in your child’s teeth and provide them with a long-lasting, beautiful smile.
Composite veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells made of tooth-colored resin that are custom-tailored to conceal and correct flaws and imperfections in the teeth. Using these custom-made shells, the front surfaces of the teeth can be transformed into a picture-perfect smile.
There are a number of dental flaws that can be corrected with composite veneers, including:
- Large gaps and spaces between the teeth
- Teeth that are severely stained or discolored
- Teeth that are irregularly shaped
- Teeth that are slightly crooked
- Broken, chipped, fractured, or excessively worn teeth
In comparison to traditional porcelain veneers, composite veneers are less invasive and do not require as much tooth structure to be removed. In general, they are not recommended for patients with large fillings or little tooth structure and are recommended for the restoration of front teeth.
