Yellow teeth can ruin an elegant smile. It destroys a person’s confidence to smile. That’s why many people opt for teeth whitening. It is one of the most popular ways to restore a person’s dazzling smile. However, it is not just adults children need it too.

Like many adults, some children experience stains and discoloration of teeth. It may be because of several reasons, such as poor oral hygiene, Excessive fluoride use, Tooth decay, Tooth damage or trauma, etc. In such cases, children might need teeth whitening. So, can children have their teeth whitened? If yes, when is the best time to get it done? Are there any side effects? Let us ask a Cosmetic Dentist.

We tapped into the knowledge of Dr. Andre Bisson, a 2022 ThreeBestRated® award-winning Cosmetic Dentist in Guelph, Ontario, to learn about it.

“While teeth whitening is safe for children in general, there are some risks to consider. For example, Over the counter teeth whitening strips contain a large amount of hydrogen peroxide that can cause or increase tooth sensitivity,” said Dr. Bisson. And in some cases, children can swallow the strips, which can be a health hazard.
However, for a child to have teeth whitened, the child should have:

  • All permanent teeth in place
  • Fully calcified enamel on permanent teeth
  • Any orthodontic treatments have already been completed

Apart from this treatment, there are a few ways to prevent discoloration in kids. They are:

  • Maintain Oral Hygiene: Brushing and flossing twice every day helps to prevent discoloration.
  • Routine Dental Checkup: Regular pediatric exams and dental cleaning two times a year are imperative to maintain the teeth’ colour.
  • Avoid Unhealthy Food: Stick to a healthy diet rather than sodas and other food & beverages that can cause stains on teeth.
