I am going to take him to the Dentist in the morning to check for nerve damage, however, I was wondering if there is anything cosmetic that can be done at such a young age?Answer Question
Yes...he can get porcelain caps at that age. My nephew's mom would give him soda in his sippy cup to go to sleep with at night and at the age of two his teeth started rotting out. They put metal caps on his tetth because it's all that medicaid would pay for...but if you have better insurance than that, you can get it capped with porcelain.

Yes...they put my nephew in a twilight sleep. He was still alert enough to hear and see but he couldn't move or feel anything. He had SEVEN teeth capped and two pulled.
Here is a website about twilight anesthesia to help you out!

Broken teeth are a bit different then baby bottle mouth. My son broke his front teeth in the pool (they were his permanent ones at that) and the dentist bonded them. You wouldn't even know that they were bonded. He has had to have the bonding done a couple of times when they chipped off but our dentist does it at no charge.
