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

 
Chapter: Tips for Teens and Parents on Whitening

  • According to Dr. Cordero, teens should wait for whitening procedures until at least the age of 14. At this time, the tooth's pulp is fully formed, which means the teen will experience less sensitivity.
  • Drink soda and coffee through a straw to prevent discoloration of the upper, front teeth.
  • Wearing braces? Brush and clean teeth meticulously because food and their bi-products can discolor teeth as well as create cavities.
