Pediatric Dentistry in Irving

To ensure that your child’s smile and oral health are the best they can possibly be, you should schedule a dental exam for them before their first birthday. At Kids & Grownups Dental, our renowned doctors and friendly staff are dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teen years. As family dentists, Drs. John and Joshua Lee received special training on how to examine and treat children in ways that make them feel comfortable. Our Irving, TX, office contains uniquely designed pediatric equipment and is decorated with kids in mind.

Preventative Dental Care

Our preventive dental services include routine oral health exams, oral cancer screening, low- exposure X-rays, cleanings, sealants, and fluoride treatments. We also educate patients on the importance of preventative measures such as brushing, flossing, and avoiding bad habits to help ensure that they don’t end up with tooth decay and gum disease.

Restorative Dentistry Procedures

Dental Fillings - Dental fillings are used to repair damage to the structure of a tooth or teeth. Structural damage can be caused as a result of tooth decay, wear, or trauma. After the removal of a problematic tooth structure, the tooth is restored with tooth colored filling materials 

Dental Bonding - Bonding is the term used to describe the process of using composite resins to “glue” materials to the surface of a tooth for restorative purposes. Chipped or cracked teeth are typically repaired through bonding. An enamel-like composite material is applied to the surface of a tooth, sculpted into shape, contoured and polished, making the crack or chip invisible. 

Root Canal Therapy (RCT) - When there’s infected pulp tissue inside the root chamber of a tooth, our doctors use laser-assisted RCT to remove it. The hollowed-out tooth is then filled with an antibacterial filling, and the tooth is “capped” with a crown for protection. 

Dental Crowns - A porcelain crown can be used to repair a badly decayed or damaged tooth. On the other hand, a dental veneer only covers a tooth’s forward-facing surface and requires a natural tooth structure as a foundation. Porcelain crowns allow teeth to function normally by strengthening any teeth that are damaged.

Oral & Maxillofacial Procedures - Oral and maxillofacial procedures range from less invasive procedures that treat abnormalities of the mouth, tissue, and teeth, to those for accompanying structures such as gum and bone. Our oral and maxillofacial services include gum grafts, bone grafts, and sinus lifts. 

Periodontal Gum Care - Early gum disease treatment may include tooth scaling and cleaning, along with the use of medicated mouthwash and proper flossing. Later-stage gum disease treatment may involve root planing and scaling, periodontal surgery, or bacterial reduction surgery.

Wisdom Tooth Extractions - Our renowned doctors are highly proficient at performing wisdom tooth removals for patients who are experiencing tooth overcrowding, damage to nearby teeth, or oral facial pain. 

Gentle & Sedation Dentistry -  For patients with dental anxiety and phobia, we offer safe and effective nitrous oxide sedation therapy that make their dental experiences much more  enjoyable. 

Emergency Dentistry

Unexplainable toothaches, a knocked out tooth, a cracked or broken tooth, and swollen and bleeding gums are all examples of dental emergencies that we are equipped to promptly treat.

Root Canal Therapy (RCT) - When indicated, our doctors use laser-assisted RCT to remove infected pulp tissue within the root chamber of the tooth. The hollowed-out tooth is then filled with an antibacterial filling, and the tooth is “capped” with a crown for protection. 

Dental Crowns - A porcelain dental crown, or “cap,” can be used to repair an extensively decayed or damaged tooth. Porcelain crowns allow teeth to function normally by strengthening one or more damaged teeth.

Oral & Maxillofacial Procedures - These procedures range from the less invasive treatment of abnormalities of the mouth, tissue, and teeth, to those for accompanying structures such as gum and bone. Our renowned doctors specialize in oral and maxillofacial procedures that include gum grafting, bone grafting, and sinus lifts. 

Periodontal Gum Care - Early gum disease treatment may include tooth scaling and cleaning at pre-determined intervals, along with the use of medicated mouthwash and proper flossing. Later-stage gum disease treatment may include root planing and scaling, periodontal surgery, and Laser Bacterial Reduction surgery.

Wisdom Tooth Extractions - We sometimes treat patients that need to have one or more wisdom teeth removed in order to reduce tooth overcrowding, prevent damage to nearby teeth, or alleviate oral facial pain. 

Gentle & Sedation Dentistry -  If you suffer from dental anxiety and phobia, our safe and reliable nitrous oxide sedation therapy can make your dental experience much more relaxing and enjoyable. 

Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

Dental Bridges & Dentures- When you are missing one or more adjacent teeth, partial dentures (bridge) or complete dentures can be used as a replacement. Today’s innovative denture styles and materials can be customized in different ways to accommodate your cosmetic goals, lifestyle, and budget. 

Dental Implants- Dental implants deliver many benefits about-and-beyond a conventional bridge or dentures, starting with the fact they look, feel, and function more like real teeth. As a premium tooth replacement option, a dental implant’s prosthetic root holds it securely in place, 

which helps preserve existing bone in the area. 

Porcelain Veneers - If you have one or more teeth that are discolored, broken, or misshapen, dental veneers are the perfect way to create the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. Extremely strong and durable, veneers are thin shells of porcelain that Dr. Lee bonds onto the front of your teeth, producing a beautiful, natural smile that complements your facial features.

 Lumineers - As an ideal choice for replacing defective tooth enamel, lumineers can be used to restore chipped, stained, or cracked teeth. Lumineers are a thin porcelain shell that are custom designed to perfectly fit your existing teeth. Each lumineer is bonded to the surface of your 

teeth, covering the visible areas.  

Teeth Whitening - At Kids & Grownups Dental, we offer both in-office, laser-activated teeth-whitening treatments, as well as convenient take-home products. With noticeable improvement after only one visit, our professional teeth-whitening solutions will leave you with a whiter, brighter, healthy-looking smile that you can’t wait to show off to others!

Smile Makeovers - Depending upon your cosmetic goals, your personalized smile makeover plan may include porcelain veneers, dental bonding, dental crowns, dental implants, and teeth whitening. 

Orthodontics

MTM Clear Aligners - This virtually invisible orthodontic treatment is suitable for adults who are interested in straightening their smile minus the clunky appearance of traditional metal braces. Ideal for correcting mild dental misalignments, an MTM treatment typically lasts from three to 12 months.

FASTBRACES - When you have crooked or misaligned teeth, FASTBRACES clear plastic aligners are a removable, more comfortable, less noticeable teeth-straightening alternative to metal wires and brackets. In most cases, our FASTBRACES patients achieve their smile goals within six months.
