Brightening Young Smiles: The Safe and Effective Teeth Whitening at Kids Smiles Pediatric Dentistry

Dr. Kelly Jobe | Pediatric Dentist | St. Louis, MO

At Kids Smiles Pediatric Dentistry in St. Louis, MO, we understand the importance of a bright smile in boosting a child’s confidence and self-esteem. Our practice, led by Dr. Kelly Jobe, is dedicated to providing safe and effective teeth whitening services tailored for our young patients.

Why Consider Teeth Whitening for Children?

Children’s teeth can become discolored due to various factors, including diet (like consuming soda or candy) and the natural contrast between baby and permanent teeth. As children grow, their smile becomes an integral part of their identity, and enhancing the brightness of their teeth can have a positive impact on their overall appearance and social interactions.

Is Teeth Whitening Safe for Kids?

Safety is our top priority at Kids Smiles Pediatric Dentistry. Teeth whitening for children is considered safe when specific criteria are met:

  • The child should be at least 14 years old.
  • All permanent teeth must have erupted and be fully calcified.
  • Any orthodontic treatments should be completed.

These guidelines ensure that the whitening process is both effective and free from potential risks, such as tooth sensitivity or damage to the enamel.

The Professional Advantage

While at-home whitening kits are popular, professional teeth whitening at a pediatric dental office has several advantages:

  • Enhanced Results: Professional whitening offers more significant and immediate improvements in tooth brightness compared to over-the-counter options.
  • Longevity: Results from professional whitening tend to last longer, ensuring your child’s smile stays brighter for an extended period.
  • Safety and Comfort: With professional supervision, the risk of gum irritation or tooth sensitivity is minimized, and the treatment is tailored to the child’s specific dental needs.
