Tooth Whitening in Louisville, Kentucky
Let Professionals Handle It
Children often require a gentler approach than adults are used to. Because of this, do-it-yourself tactics might feel too harsh on a child's sensitive teeth. It's much easier and more efficient to let your dentist handle it. You'll love that Dr. William E. Kemper, DMD Pediatric Dentistry helps your children with tooth whitening without causing discomfort.
That yellowish color on your kid's teeth staring at in the face isn't just your imagination. It happens subtly overtime, but eventually, it is noticeable. The best tactic is to prevent stains and discoloring.
We Recommend These:
Once you have visited us to get an assessment, we recommend certain brands of toothpaste. Bleach trays, although effective, are much more abrasive and more difficult on sensitive teeth. It's much easier to incorporate brushing into everyday habits than it is to disrupt a child's routine with something new.
Soda is full of sugar and devoid of nutrients, and regular consumption causes teeth to stain. We recommend helping your children choose hydrating beverages like water or creating your own pseudo-soda with sparkling water mixed with natural fruit. This will reduce staining significantly.
When your children are younger, their teeth are more susceptible and sensitive. Because of this, our experts suggest waiting until your little ones grow a bit before taking this cosmetic step. The Academy of General Dentistry recommends holding off on whitening until children reach at least 14 years of age when their tooth pulp is fully formed.
It is a good idea to stay on the safe side and wait until your child is 17 or 18 before proceeding. However, we are more than willing to discuss these options with you if you feel your child would benefit from tooth whitening.
