Is your teenager self-conscious about his or her smile? Many teens will resort to do-it-yourself whitening kits for a brighter, whiter smile. However, the nerve in young teeth is not as developed as it is in adult teeth. Teens can cause nerve damage in their teeth leading to future problems and possibly the need for a root canal.
If your teenager is asking for whitening supplies bring him or her to our office for a consultation. We have gentle bleaching material specifically designed for younger patients. We also custom-make trays for our patients therefore eliminating the possibility of gingival damage from using the bleaching
Bleaching without supervision and expertise can aggravate sensitive teeth and gums and create long-term issues for the patient.
