Teens: Want a Bright Smile? Visit Dentist, not Mall

Chapter: Teens' Increase in Whitening Requests

"Teens should visit their dentist instead of the mall for a healthy, white smile," says AGD spokesperson Manuel Cordero, DDS, MAGD, who has seen a steady increase in his teen patients' requests for this procedure.


Proper whitening depends upon the use of a custom-made bleaching tray, which only a dentist can properly fit. Some Internet companies sell the materials that allow consumers to make their own whitening tray. But only dentists can assure the proper use of these materials. Without supervision and expertise, these materials can cause damage to existing dental work. As with any dental procedure, whitening should always be done under the supervision of a dentist.
