Take-Home Whitening Kits
If your child has been experiencing tooth discoloration, then there can be many causes of their condition that can be treated. Conditions such as enamel fluorosis and enamel hypoplasia can affect developing teeth and make them vulnerable to decay. Our pediatric dentists can help treat these conditions using the latest techniques within dentistry to help your child restore their teeth to better health.
How Teeth Whitening is Safe For Children
Teeth whitening can be used for children – under certain conditions. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry has policies in place to protect children for teeth whitening treatments, especially for children with moderate to severe tooth discolorations disorders. For long term treatments for discoloration, teeth whitening kits and professional whitening services can help negate these symptoms and help remove stains. Our practice will focus on supervising the treatment process and giving our patients various take-home kits to provide effective whitening while treating their teeth conditions.
Our Various Take-Home Whitening Systems
All of our take-home system whitening systems are sold directly to us through licensed dental suppliers. We offer these take-home systems to help treat our patients and give them the cosmetic aesthetics and convenience. Some of the products we offer include:
Opalescence™ PF – The Opalescence™ PF whitening gel uses easy syringe delivery, a viscous formula that prevents the gel from migrating during the application, and contains 20% more water to prevent teeth dehydration. The Opalescence™ PF whitening gel contains fluoride and potassium nitrate to reduce tooth sensitivity and is sweetened with Xylitol, a sweetener that helps prevent the risks of cavities.
Opalescence™ 10% – The Opalescence™ 10% whitening gel containing carbamide peroxide to help whiten teeth with a minimal amount of peroxide for effective whitening without the risk of developing tooth sensitivity. Similar to Opalescence™ PF, the whitening gel is distributed in an easy syringe, can be used with trays, and contains Xylitol for cavity prevention.
Opalescence Go™ – The Opalescence Go™ provides the most assurance for patients looking for better over the counter whitening systems, not requiring any impressions, models, or lab time. Its unique UltraFit tray delivery system gives easy clean up due to the sticky, viscous gel used during travel and at home. Its high water content allows for protection against teeth dehydration, contains Xylitol for sweetness, and contains potassium nitrate and fluoride for a customized regiment.
For children who are susceptible to these conditions, teeth whitening can help treat discoloration by providing a treatment plan that can help support the development of the teeth.
