Should I Let My Teen Whiten Their Teeth?

Posted on October 27th, 2020

Westpark Pediatric Dentistry talk about teeth whitening for teensDo you remember feeling like standards of beauty were unattainable when you were a teenager? Heck, many of feel this way as adults! It makes sense that teenagers might be concerned with the appearance of their smile and pine for bright white smiles the same way adults do, because they’re often exposed to the same media that displays stunning smiles nonstop. 

There’s a lot to be said for defying those expectations, but if there were a simple, safe, and widely available treatment that could make a world of difference for your teen’s self-confidence, would you be ok with it? 

Your Dentist Can Help

If your teen has expressed that they’d like to have their teeth whitened, you might be inclined to gasp and reply, “Your smile is perfect as it is!” We understand, and at Westpark Pediatric Dentistry, we do love how unique smiles are from person to person, and we want everyone to feel comfortable with their natural smile just as it is. 

However, maybe it can lead to a productive discussion and informed decision. First, there’s the question of whether teeth whitening is a suitable treatment for adolescents, and if it is, what type of treatment will be the most effective and economical. 

If you have any additional questions or would like to schedule a consultation with your Richmond dentist, Dr. Malije Onwueme, please contact us! We want all of our friends and neighbors to have healthy smiles they feel proud to share.
