Get that Smile Back in Your Child


Do you have a child with stained or discolored teeth?  Do they seem embarrassed by this?  If so, you may be wondering if there is anything you as a parent can do to boost their confidence and brighten up their smile.  There are many different whitening options, so read through and discover which option is best for that precious child of yours!

First stop is toothpaste.  What kind of toothpaste are they using?  You need to know whether or not a whitening toothpaste will benefit your child.  It can be very tempting to just roll down the aisle and pick up a name brand whitening toothpaste, but this type of whitening may not help your child’s particular problem.  Whitening toothpastes only have a small amount of abrasives, so it may only remove some surface stains and brighten their teeth for a short time.  Whitening toothpaste will not remove dark stains and wont change the color of the teeth very much at all.  Whitening toothpaste does mess with the enamel on your teeth, therefore can cause sensitivity.  So make sure to discuss the use of whitening toothpaste with your dentist before choosing this over-the-counter option.  Teeth Whitening Linwood NJ 08221

Bleaching your child’s teeth is one of the simplest methods to restore your child’s smile, according to pediatric dental care experts.  Bleaching is typically used on teeth that have mild and uniform staining.  Check with your dentist, but many offer an at-home bleaching option and an in-office whitening.  If you choose to do the at-home option, your child will wear bleaching trays to whiten the teeth over time.  This can usually take time, and may make the teeth sensitive.  It also is not near as effective as in-office whitening.  In-office bleaching is fast, has great results, and is safe.  The only downside is in-office bleaching is more costly than at-home bleaching.  Teeth Whitening Linwood NJ 08221
