At Higginbotham Family Dental in Bartlett, TN, we offer four different levels of teeth whitening..
The American Dental Association recommends 16 years of age to have a whitening procedure done. Even once all adult teeth have erupted in a patient’s mouth, it takes an additional two years for the enamel calcification to be complete. If a child has a whitening treatment done before this time, it can cause overexposure of peroxide to the tooth pulp causing enamel damage and lifelong sensitivity. At Higginbotham Family Dental we will not perform a whitening treatment on anyone under the age of 16.
Before a patient can have any teeth whitening treatment, they need to make sure they have had a routine exam with x-rays completed in the last 6 months. If a patient has a cavity and has a whitening treatment done, it could cause extreme pain in the decayed tooth as well as possible nerve damage. We recommend having all your cavities treated before starting a whitening regimen, including at-home options.
If you have a veneer, crown, or tooth-colored filling, understand that most teeth whitening systems will not work as they are not natural tooth enamel. The hydrogen peroxide complex will not lighten on porcelain or resin composite. If you are unhappy with the way your smile looks, our staff at Higginbotham Family Dental offers Free Cosmetic Consultations. Contact Us Today to schedule your consultation.
