Should my teen whiten their teeth?
Posted on 2/21/2020 by Crossroads Family Dentistry
teen white teeth
Bright, white teeth are an increasingly valued attribute in today's society. This is perhaps especially true now that teeth whitening products are readily available in a number of different price ranges. Just because something is available, of course, doesn't mean that it's the best option for you to use. If your teen wants to whiten their teeth, what is the best response? Can doing so impact their oral health? In addition to seeing adentist in Colorado Springsfor a detailed assessment, there are a few things to keep in mind about teen tooth whitening. Should teeth be white? While bright white teeth are coveted, they're not necessarily the default state of teeth. As we age, our teeth can become a bit discolored due to simply to eating and drinking. Note that this is true even if you're diligent about your dental care. This is one of the reasons that maintaining that bright white smile can be so arduous and usually requires multiple treatments over the years - simply living life is enough for the hue to fade. Keep in mind, in other words, that not having the brightest smile isn't something to be upset about. Teen Tooth Whitening In order to determine if your teen can safely whiten their teeth, you should reach out to aColorado Springs dentistfor an assessment. The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) recommends that teenswait until at least the age of 14, however, a family dentist will have the best and most personalized advice for you and your child. Is your teen interested in teeth whitening? Reach out to a dental office in Colorado Springs today! Crossroads Family Dentistry is happy to help in any way we can, including assessing your child's teeth and looking at different teeth whitening options if appropriate.
