Should Mustang Teens Whiten Their Teeth?

Oklahoma City teeth bleaching best price

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 your Norman, Edmond, or Moore dentist before buying an at-home tooth whitening product.

As with any cosmetic dentistry procedure, teeth whitening should be overseen by a professional. There are a number of factors that can affect results such as an existing crown or teeth that have not yet erupted. Some medical conditions can cause teeth to darken. Your Moore dentist can determine if a teen’s 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 Oklahoma City teen is practicing proper oral health habits and help them 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 dangers of oral piercings which include tooth damage and infection.

If you or any member of your family decides to use an over-the-counter teeth whitener, be sure to follow the instructions exactly because the bleaching agents used can damage your mouth and gums.
