As they mature, teenagers become very self-aware about their looks, their clothes, and their teeth. As such, we offer teeth whitening for our teenage patients where appropriate.
Can My Teenager Have Whitening?
In order for a teenager to have successful treatment with teeth whitening, they need to be cavity-free and have exceptional oral hygiene and home care. Parents must supervise their teenager’s whitening treatment, as the major side effect of whitening is tooth sensitivity.
How is Tooth Whitening Done?
The most effective tooth whitening treatment is done at home with custom bleaching trays that we fabricate in the office. We will review the treatment time and the treatment protocol with you and your child to ensure successful whitening!
