We often get the questions about teeth whitening from our older pediatric patients. We can help guide your family through the best whitening options. You will not want your teen to whiten their teeth until after all their adult teeth have fully erupted and they have completed braces. After the completion of braces whitening their new smile can be a great source of confidence for our teenage patients.
Whitening a smile is a cosmetic procedure that can also have practical positive effects.
Feeling More Confident
When your child knows that their smile is sparkling and bright it can increase their confidence.
Dealing with Stubborn Stains
Juices, soda, braces, genetics, and eating darkly pigmented foods can lead to permanent stains on the teeth. Even brushing with whitening toothpaste will rarely remove these stains, which can be highly visible when we smile. Most tooth discoloration can be addressed with either dental care or tooth whitening.
