What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening, also known as teeth bleaching, is a non-invasive cosmetic dental treatment that’s used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and enhance the beauty of your smile.
When is teeth whitening for children used?
Our pediatric dentists may recommend teeth whitening for children due to:
- Discoloration of teeth following braces
- Excessive fluoridation during tooth development (fluorosis)
- Stained teeth from medications (e.g. tetracycline)
In cases where patients have white spots on teeth and are looking for a way to remove these markings, Park View Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics also offers a technology called Icon, a resin infiltration system, which can effectively remove white spots on teeth.
What does teeth whitening for kids involve?
Park View Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics offers a number of different teeth whitening options for kids and each option involves different things. Depending on each patient’s unique needs and desired results, we will determine a whitening treatment that works best. In some cases, our pediatric dentists may recommend prescription-strength strips for at-home use.
