Should Fargo Teens Whiten Their Teeth?

Should Fargo Teens Get Teeth Whitening?

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 Moorhead, West Fargo, or Fargo 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 West Fargo 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 treatments, especially with kids. Make sure your Fargo 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.

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.

Making smiles bright extends beyond the doors of Designer Smiles, especially each March through June when we proudly participate in the Smiles For Life campaign. During this time, 100 percent of the proceeds from teeth whitening procedures go to children’s charities, including right here in the F-M area. This year, we have selected Haley's Hope Dyslexia Learning Center as the local charity of choice.

We make helping children and bright smiles easy—simply contact us to schedule your teeth whitening appointment. You get a brighter, whiter smile, and children get a reason to smile, as well. If you are already happy with your bright smile, simply ask about the other ways you can participate in helping children.Dr. Hetland is a Smiles For Life participating dentist in Fargo, North Dakota to benefit children's charities.
