How Old Do I Have To Be For Teeth Whitening?

The American Dental Association recommends that a child be at least 16 years old to have a whitening procedure done. Even once all adult teeth have erupted in a patient’s mouth, it still 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 in Memphis, TN we will not perform a whitening treatment on anyone under the age of 16. 

Can I Have My Teeth Whitened If I Have A Cavity?

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. At Higginbotham Family Dental in Memphis, TN,  we recommend having all your cavities treated before starting a whitening regimen, including at-home options.

I Have Crowns? Will They Whiten Too?

If you have any sort of veneer, crown, or tooth-colored filling, please understand that most teeth whitening systems will not work on them 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. 

How Much Will It Cost? 

Some insurance companies will pay for certain cosmetic procedures. However, if a patient is looking at treatment not covered by insurance, or does not have dental insurance coverage themselves, Higginbotham Family Dental in Memphis, TN has multiple options. We offer In-House Financing with Zero Interest and Low Monthly Payment Plans to make any dental treatment easy to afford. Apply Here

Most Relaxing Cleaning Ever!

I had a great first experience. I’m fairly new to town and was in need of a regular cleaning. The office is nice, everyone is extremely friendly, and even with having to fill out all of the new patient paperwork, I was in and out in under an hour. With the massaging chair, I think I can safely say this was my most relaxing cleaning ever.
