At The Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, our team knows that beautiful smiles start in early childhood. By helping your child enjoy the best possible oral health care, we can set them up with brighter, healthier smiles that last well into adulthood!
If your child has already had their first tooth erupt, it’s time to make a trip to see the dentist! To help ensure your child stays healthy and prevent more extensive treatment later in life, Dr. Shapiro, Dr. Palmieri, and the kid-friendly dental team offer comprehensive plans designed to cater to their unique needs.
We offer the following pediatric dental services at our Smithtown, NY dental office:
Your Child's Dental Cleanings and Exams
Professional dental cleanings and exams allow us to pinpoint concerns while they are small and easy to correct. Our gentle hygienist has pediatric dental office experience and enjoys treating children. At each preventive exam, we'll also provide your child with easy-to-understand home care techniques that promote better oral health between appointments.
Whether it's your child's first dental appointment or a preventive check-up, your little one will be taken care of with state-of-the-art care tailored to their needs!
Protective Dental Sealants
Dental sealants protect your child’s teeth from developing cavities in the harder-to-reach areas like the pits and grooves inside of the back teeth. Sealants take only a few minutes to apply and there is no pain involved!
Applying a teeth-strengthening mineral treatment after your child’s dental cleaning will promote strong enamel that is resistant to cavities. These safe, effective treatments are also useful for preventing tooth sensitivity!
Athletic Mouth Guards for Kids
Does your child play sports? Prevent common dental emergencies and sports injuries by having your child wear a custom mouth guard during their athletic activities. Our custom-fitted sports guards also protect against concussions.
Tooth Extractions For Kids
Dr. Shapiro or Dr. Palmieri may recommend a gentle tooth extraction to children who are suffering from decay or who are experiencing crowding. Tooth extractions can help promote their total body health as they continue to grow.
