Getting a smile just like their favorite singer or movie star might be high on your teen’s priority list. However, you may want to talk with us at Aspen Ridge Dental in Casper WY before buying them an at-home teeth whitening product.
As with any dental procedure, teeth whitening should be overseen by a professional. There are a number of variables that can influence the results, such as an existing crown or teeth that have not yet erupted. Some medical conditions can cause teeth to darken. We can establish if tooth stains are a symptom of an underlying condition.
It’s always a good idea to stress prevention over treatments, especially with kids. Make sure your adolescent is observing sensible dental health habits. Make sure they understand that coffee, tea, cola, and energy drinks can stain their teeth.
And if they need another reason not to smoke, remind them that tobacco products will destroy their beautiful smile along with their lungs. Lastly, warn them of the risks of oral piercings which include tooth damage and infection.
