Cosmetic Dentistry

Pediatric Dentist

Improving your child’s oral health with quality care is always our team’s top priority, but we also understand the benefits of maintaining natural-looking aesthetics. Self-confidence can be fragile when you’re young, and we’re here to support it however we can. Dr. Higgins offers several services with strong cosmetic benefits, improving the function and strength of teeth while also preserving their original, beautiful appearance. Families from the Vail Valley and surrounding areas are welcome to contact us today and schedule a first appointment.

At-Home Teeth Whitening

Teeth can become stained for a number of reasons, including poor oral hygiene, certain food and drink items, and even simple genetics. With take-home whitening, we can provide incredible improvements for smiles in a gradual and convenient way. The special bleaching gel and customized trays simply need to be worn together for a certain amount of time each day – after just a few weeks have passed, enamel should look significantly cleaner and brighter. We can also provide in-office whitening for individual teeth if needed.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Instead of having to rely on amalgam materials, Dr. Higgins offers an improved alternative to cavity treatment with the same, revitalizing results – tooth-colored fillings. This quality composite resin material is precisely shaded and contoured by our team, allowing it to virtually disappear into smiles. In fact, your child won’t even notice it’s there!

All-Ceramic Restorations

When our young patients’ teeth are severely decayed or fractured they may need a crown. In addition to stainless steel crowns we also offer tooth-colored zirconia crowns for front and back teeth. When esthetics are a concern, we will make every effort to provide a pleasing result. At Mountain Valley Kids Dental, the last thing we want is to cause your child to hide their mouth from view. That’s why we offer all-ceramic restorations as a quality alternative that seamlessly matches natural teeth.

In addition to their lifelike appearance, all-ceramic restorations can benefit children in other ways. There are no metallic materials present, which means that even patients with sensitivities or allergies can enjoy them freely. They also offer plenty of comfort and durability.
