About Teeth Whitening
There are many over-the-counter choices for teeth whitening at home, but they don't always deliver what they claim and you could wind up wasting your money and time. At First Class Pediatric Dentistry, we offer professional teeth whitening that focuses on white spot removal for your child to use at home. Home teeth whitening kits provided by board-certified pediatric dentist Dr. Adesegun Tewogbade are an efficient and cost-effective method to conveniently eliminate white spots and deliver a brighter smile. Dr. T puts together a home whitening kit to fit your child's needs and goals to deliver the best results. Your child's whitening kit will include custom-fitted mouth trays or a white spot removal pen that make the whitening process more comfortable. If your child would like to improve their smile with a personalized teeth whitening kit, then get in touch with our office in Snellville, GA to schedule an appointment.
Best Candidates for Home Teeth Whitening
For patients wishing to improve the appearance of their teeth and diminish the appearance of white spots, Dr. T may suggest a personalized teeth whitening kit to use in the comfort of home. There are several possible reasons that white spots may exist on the teeth, including eating acidic foods, poor dental hygiene, and dental fluorosis. White spots look exactly how they sound, creating small or large areas of white on the teeth that don't match the surrounding shade of the tooth. Your child may have tried store-bought whitening products but found them uncomfortable, ineffective, or harmful to their teeth. At First Class Pediatric Dentistry, each whitening treatment is customized to best suit each patient so it's an excellent choice for those with sensitive teeth.
Home Teeth Whitening Treatment
Your child's home teeth whitening kit will be created by Dr. T with a whitening gel product and personalized mouth trays or a spot removal pen. Prior to making the whitening kit, Dr. T will conduct a thorough evaluation of your child's teeth and dental health in order to choose the ideal whitening strength and formulation. We will make impressions of your child's mouth so custom trays can be created. It may take a few days to get these. Once the kit is prepared, Dr. T will go over the instructions necessary for every treatment, including how long and how often your child should use the teeth whitening materials.
Maintaining Whitening Results
Most patients start to see some whitening improvements immediately. Final results will be based on the strength of the bleaching gel, your child's initial enamel color, and how many times the whitening treatment was applied. When the desired color is achieved, your child can quit using the home kit. To preserve the best results, your child should maintain an excellent oral hygiene routine and avoid staining foods and drinks. Furthermore, be sure to schedule twice-yearly cleanings at First Class Pediatric Dentistry to keep teeth looking bright, plus annual dental examinations so Dr. T can check on your child's overall oral health. It is important for your child to keep the trays clean and in a safe place, making it easy to restart their home treatment at any time.
Get Ready to Smile Brighter
Your child can comfortably and easily gain an enhanced smile with home teeth whitening kits from First Class Pediatric Dentistry. Dr. T and his staff make each whitening kit to personally suit each patient's specific needs and goals. The home teeth whitening process is less expensive than in-office procedures, and it won't disrupt your child's schedule.
