When we remove decay from a tooth, we replace it with filling material. Amalgam (silver) fillings were the only option to be placed into the cleaned out portion of the tooth. Now, your child can take advantage of the latest advancements in dentistry with composite (tooth-colored) fillings. Tooth-colored fillings look more natural, restore most of the original strength of the tooth and reduce sensitivity associated with amalgam fillings. Your child can enjoy a natural-looking, bright smile!
Tooth whitening is a great gift to give your teen so they can enjoy special moments like prom and senior pictures with confidence.
The whitening options offered at PDS are much stronger than the bleach products you can buy at the grocery store, since over-the-counter, at-home treatments are meant to be used over the period of days or weeks. In-office whitening can be performed with a light or laser, or using bleaching gel.
If you use bleaching gel, your PDS dentist will first make special bleaching trays for your upper and lower teeth. The bleaching gel is placed in the trays, which are worn for short periods during the day or even overnight as specified in the product directions or by your dentist or manufacturer.
We invest in state-of-the-art dental technologies to ensure your child has a positive visit and the best possible oral health.
