Young children need a pleasing smile too.
Despite our best efforts, the appearance of a filling may be compromised because of a child's limited ability to cooporate. However, we strive to always improve your child's smile, as we know that as early as 4 or 5, children can become self-conscious about the appearance of their teeth.
This patient would never smile because his friends teased him about his front tooth that stuck out 0.5 cm, even when his lips were closed.
The filling on the tooth was too thick and the solution was quick and easy.
The old filling was reshaped and additional white filling was added to the adjacent tooth. The result....both teeth appeared even and straight.
The patient could not stop smiling!
