Restorative in Hutto, TX

Pediatric Dentist Hutto

Bumble Bee Pediatric Dentistry understands that dental problems can arise unexpectedly, even with the most diligent care. As a parent or caretaker, you do your best to ensure your children brush and floss properly, but sometimes accidents happen. It’s possible for children to develop cavities, experience tooth pain, or accidentally chip a tooth at some point in their early years.

Regardless of what curveballs life throws you, keep your chin up and schedule a restorative dentistry appointment as soon as possible. Dr. Amelia (Amy) Albright can discuss your child’s potential options with you as well as better ensure that your little one feels comfortable throughout the process.

What Is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry for kids involves treating and repairing damaged teeth in children to restore the function and appearance of teeth. The goal of restorative dentistry is to preserve natural teeth as much as possible while promoting excellent health habits for the child’s future.

Our Restorative Dental Services Are The Bee’s Knees

Restorative care is designed to repair damaged dental structures, and families can rest assured that Dr. Amy can provide safe and effective treatment to alleviate any discomfort while returning your child’s smile to health. The top restorative dentistry treatments at Bumble Bee Pediatric Dentistry include:

Dental
Fillings

Dental fillings “fill in” minor cavities, damage, and other structural and functional issues. This type of treatment is often the first line of defense in restorative dentistry.

Dental
Crowns

Sometimes called “tooth caps,” dental crowns cover moderately damaged or decayed teeth. Bumble Bee Pediatric Dentistry offers stainless steel and aesthetic options.

Pulp
Therapy

When possible, it’s almost always best to save a tooth rather than extract it. That’s when pulp therapy comes in to save smiles!

Tooth
Extractions

Sometimes, teeth can be infected, decayed, or damaged beyond repair. At this point, tooth removal is often the best option, and our team does what they can to ensure that children feel comfortable and safe throughout the procedure.

Along with dental fillings, dental crowns, pulp therapy, and tooth extractions, Bumble Bee Pediatric Dentistry also offers minimally-invasive options, including the Hall Crown Technique, Silver Modified Atraumatic Restorative Technique (SMART), and more. 

When Is It Time To Reach Out To A Pediatric Dentist?

If you notice any signs of tooth decay or damage in your child’s teeth, it’s essential to schedule an appointment with their dentist without delay. If left untreated, these pesky problems can lead to further complications and potentially require more extensive repairs and spread of infection down the line. Some indications that your child might need restorative dental work include the following:

  • Discomfort in the Gums or Teeth
  • Dental Discoloration
  • Holes or Pits in the Enamel
  • Cracked or Chipped Teeth
