What to Do When Your Child Breaks a Front Tooth: Exploring Options

by  CFAD Blog Editor

As parents, it’s natural to feel concerned when our children experience pain or distress. One of the most heart-wrenching moments can be when a child breaks a front tooth, leading to worry and uncertainty. A significant concern for children with broken front teeth is feeling self-conscious about their appearance. The great news is that there are plenty of options available to fix the tooth and restore your child’s bright smile. Thanks to modern dental techniques and technology, your child doesn’t have to feel self-conscious or worry about losing their tooth.

At our office, we often encounter situations where young kids, especially spirited little boys, have had accidents resulting in broken front teeth. Despite the initial shock, we can get quite creative in saving these teeth because it’s crucial to preserve the tooth to maintain bone health, even if a long-term solution like an implant might be considered down the road.

Let’s take a look at a few Before & After examples of kiddos who’ve taken a tumble:

These are just a few examples of how we can help when a child breaks a front tooth. Our goal is not just to fix the tooth but also to alleviate any concerns and help your child regain their confidence. Remember, accidents happen, but with the right dental care, your child’s smile can shine brightly once again. If you ever find yourself in such a situation, don’t hesitate to reach out to us for compassionate and expert dental care.

Glenda’s Conservative Smile Makeover: Orthodontics, Whitening & Composite Bonding Veneers

by  CFAD Blog Editor

I love being a family dentist but what tickles my heart and makes my days FUN is a beautiful smile makeover like Glenda’s. Glenda had gorgeous teeth already, we just needed to put them in the right place.

First, I aligned the gum levels with traditional braces. After her teeth were in the right position, she whitened and I placed three composite veneers to make them the appropriate length.

Congratulations to you, gorgeous girl! And thank you for your trust.

Smile Makeover: Teeth Whitening With Replacement Composite Bonding

Smile makeover with teeth whitening and replacement composite bonding

Did you know that your old restorations do not change color when you bleach your teeth? This patient’s old composite restoration (also known as bonding) became really obvious after the patient bleached her teeth. We replaced that restoration using 4 different shades and opacities of composite in order to get this beautiful natural result.

I absolutely love doing this type of dentistry.  It’s easy, cost effective, and what a change!
