Teeth Whitening An Overview

Teeth whitening may be appropriate for your child or teen if there is discoloration associated with trauma, medications prescribed or genetics. Dr. Miller works with patients to address tooth color and cosmetic concerns on an individual basis to meet the needs of the patient and support their long-term oral health and development.

Dr. Miller takes a conservative approach to teeth whitening to protect the structure of your child’s developing teeth and support their long-term dental health. She will recommend products and treatment based on the age and overall oral health condition of the patient. The tooth pulps in a growing smile are larger than those in a fully-developed adult tooth, making them more prone to lasting sensitivity or other side effects of a professional teeth whitening treatment performed in a dental office.

Teeth Whitening What to Expect

The age of the patient will largely determine the recommended approach to whitening teeth.

  • Teeth whitening is discouraged in patients under the age of 12.
  • Whitening toothpaste can be effective for patients aged 12-16.
  • For more pronounced discoloration in pre-teen and teen patients, teeth whitening strips may be recommended.
  • For patients over the age of 16 with tooth discoloration, Dr. Miller can provide a custom take-home teeth whitening kit that includes personalized bleaching trays.
