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 The Parkway Dentist in Fort Worth, before buying an over-the-counter whitening product.
As with any cosmetic dentistry procedure, teeth whitening should be overseen by a professional. There are a number of considerations that can impact the results such as an existing crown or teeth that have not yet erupted. Some medical conditions can cause teeth to darken. We can determine whether teeth 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 teen is observing sensible oral 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 perils of oral piercings which include tooth damage and infection.
