At Stephen Ratcliff Family & Cosmetic Dentistry we see many children and teens with serious mouth and tooth injuries that could have been prevented had they been wearing a mouth guard. When a tooth is knocked, it can be very difficult for children to speak, eat, and smile.
Protecting Your Child’s Teeth
At Stephen Ratcliff Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we recommend that Arlington parents encourage their children to wear mouth guards when participating in team sports, skateboarding, skiing, and ice skating. Ask us about custom mouth guards that will fit your child’s teeth perfectly and offer excellent options. Stock mouth guards can be found at most Arlington sporting goods stores and are also an option, however, there are times when they do not fit as well.
If you or your child is in need of family dentistry in Arlington due to an injury or an accident, our staff at Stephen Ratcliff Family & Cosmetic Dentistry offers several restorative and cosmetic procedures.
Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in Arlington
If the tooth is cracked, porcelain veneers may be the best remedy. This procedure is done by bonding a custom-fitted porcelain veneer to all of the affected teeth. This can cover a crack, chip, or any discoloration.
Cosmetic bonding is also an option for a chipped or cracked tooth. A composite material is matched to your tooth color and then sculpted around your existing tooth to repair the crack or chip. This procedure is less expensive than veneers and gives beautiful results.
If a crown or dental implant is required to repair your tooth, our practice will provide quality crowns made from high-strength ceramic or porcelain, giving your smile a beautiful shape, color, and translucency.
