Should Fishers Teens Whiten Their Teeth?

Fishers teeth bleaching best price

Getting a smile just like their favorite singer or movie star might be high on your teen’s priority list. However, you may want to talk with your Carmel, Fishers, or Indianapolis dentist before buying an at-home tooth whitening product.

As with any cosmetic dentistry procedure, teeth whitening should be overseen by a professional. There are a number of factors that can affect results, such as an existing crown or teeth that have not yet erupted. Some medical conditions can cause teeth to darken. Your Indianapolis dentist can determine if a teen’s tooth stains are a symptom of an underlying condition.

It’s always a good idea to stress prevention over treatment, especially with kids. Make sure your Fishers teen is practicing proper oral health habits and help them understand that coffee, tea, cola, and energy drinks can stain their teeth. And if they need another reason not to smoke, remind them that tobacco products will destroy their beautiful smile along with their lungs. Lastly, warn them of the dangers of oral piercings which include tooth damage and infection.

If you or any member of your family decides to use an over-the-counter teeth whitener, be sure to follow the instructions exactly, as the bleaching agents used can damage your mouth and gums.

    Dr's Behner and Pence provide an outstanding service and I am glad they are my dentist. Their staff is awesome also.

    —Pat S.

    Jeanie M.

    I know I need some extra pats and such to get me ready, and they always have been there to smile and reassure me! It’s extremely embarrassing to have so much fear but they are there not judging by comforting me!

    —Jeanie M.

    Leslee D.

    I had put off having dental work because of anxiety. I’m so glad to have been referred to Dr. Behner many years ago. Being able to have IV sedation enabled me to get the work done that was needed. Dr. Behner and his staff are so understanding. My bite is better due to crowns and I’m no longer in pain. Thank you, Dr. Behner. I no longer “dread” the dentist.

    —Leslee D.

    Cindy M.

    My experince with Dr. Behner and staff seriously changed my life. I’m 52, and feared the dentist since childhood, after terrible visits. Over 5 years ago, I found Dr. Behner after doing an internet search for sedation dentistry. At my first visit, even before my sedation appt., I knew I had found my dentist for life. The atmosphere, the staff, and the dentist, all give a sense of comfort and peace. I’ve never once been afraid again, and actually look forward to my appointments!

    —Cindy M.

    Judy S.

    The entire staff is so kind and considerate that over the years my anxiety has diminished. They are my "dental family". Just had an extraction and cannot imagine a better dentist!

    —Judy S.
