As your child becomes more aware of his or her smile, they may begin to be concerned with the color of their teeth. Because we strive to help every child maintain a smile that they can take pride in, we offer whitening services for those who are interested.
Foods, drinks, supplements, and other chemicals, including chlorine from pool water, can cause extrinsic tooth stain. Drugs, medical conditions, and trauma can cause intrinsic stain, especially during tooth formation. Extrinsic stain responds well to whitening products, such as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide found in tooth whitening products. Intrinsic stain may sometimes be masked with whitening products, but often other treatment options must be discussed. We can help to determine the source of your child’s stain and discuss the correct treatment option to maintain a healthy white smile.
