Brighten Your Child’s Smile from Home
From soda and an inconsistent oral hygiene routine to simple genetics, it’s normal for your child’s once-white smile to begin to take on a yellow tinge as they age.

How At-Home Teeth Whitening Works
Both professional take-home teeth whitening treatments and store-bought alternatives are designed to erase pigmented discoloration, but only one actually works: the products from your dentist. With clinically tested bleaching gel and customized trays, our cosmetic dentist in Castle Rock can safely restore your child’s bright smile. After a few weeks of daily use, their smile will be noticeably whiter. (Plus, if there is just one stained tooth that is plaguing their smile, we offer in-office whitening for individual teeth as well!).
The Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening
If you are on the fence, it is important to remember that professional teeth whitening treatments come with a number of benefits, such as:
- Clinically tested, safe, reliable products.
- Personalized treatment plans.
- Delivers results in as little as two weeks.
- Protects teeth and gums in the process.
Tips for Maintaining the Results
Unfortunately, the results from teeth whitening treatments aren’t permanent. The good news, however, is that there are a few best practices your child can implement to keep their chompers pearly white. With this in mind, make sure they:
- Brush their teeth for two minutes at least twice a day.
- Treat flossing as important as brushing.
- Use mouthwash regularly.
- Visit their dentist every six months for a checkup and cleaning.
- Avoid teeth-staining foods and beverages (like soda).
- Quit poor dental habits (i.e., using their teeth as tools, consuming too much sugar, etc.).
If your child is struggling with pigmented dental discoloration, don’t hesitate to contact our team. From there, we can schedule an appointment to take a look at their teeth and gums and see if they are a candidate for take-home teeth whitening!
