Teeth Whitening for Children
Having stained teeth doesn’t just happen to adults, but children as well. There is no need for any child to struggle with their self esteem. If toothpaste whitening and in-home bleaching/in-office bleaching are not an option for your child, consider these other treatments. And as usual, always discuss with your dentist for the best route.
Cosmetic dentistry involves a lot of different treatments, but dealing with staining is one of the most common reasons children seek cosmetic dentistry. Some children have staining on their teeth due to trauma, infection, or medication use. Microabrasion is widely used in pediatric dental care for removing stains. Most of the time it can remove stains and discoloration with minimal treatment. It is very safe and effective; a great alternative to teeth whitening.
When staining, discoloration, or damage happens to a child’s teeth, bonding and veneers can help improve the appearance of their teeth. Both of these treatments will last for many years as long as proper care and cleaning happen. When bonding is the treatment of choice, the dentist will apply a tooth-colored composite resin (plastic) onto the surface of the tooth and then sculpt and shape it.

If Veneers is the way you want to go, a custom made shell with be made out of porcelain or plastic and then is bonded to the teeth. Veneers is the more costly of the two.
The most often preferred method for cosmetic dentistry in children is the use of porcelain crowns. These type of crowns are very natural and very durable. Crowns can be used to whiten discolored teeth, as well as hide dental defects. They are also used to restore a tooth that happens to be chipped, cracked, or broken. Porcelain crowns can only be used on permanent teeth and typically is a more costly procedure. Best Way to Whiten Teeth Linwood NJ 08221
