If your child has yellowed teeth and would like a cosmetic improvement to their smile, our dentist can help. We offer teeth whitening treatments in Huntington Beach, California, at Daghlian Pediatric Dentistry & Sokolowski Orthodontics.

What Causes Tooth Discoloration?

Both children and adults experience tooth discoloration. The factors of tooth discoloration are varied and unique to each individual. Common discoloration factors include:

  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Consuming certain foods and beverages
  • Illness
  • Certain Medications
  • Fluorosis
  • Tobacco use
  • Aging

What Can Be Done to Fix it?

Dr. Rita Daghlian offers safe, gentle teeth whitening treatments to help our young patients feel more confident in the look of their teeth. Teeth whitening is simple and effective at enhancing the smile, often after just one treatment. We use a professional tooth whitening gel that lightens the appearance of stains, discoloration and yellowing on the teeth. Although teeth whitening is incredibly effective, it can’t remove all stains and discoloration. Severe staining may require different treatments.

What is the Difference Between Professional Teeth Whitening and Over-the-Counter Whitening Treatments?

You likely have seen teeth whitening treatments at the grocery store or in your local pharmacy. Although these over-the-counter whitening options can be effective, they often don’t produce the results your child deserves. Our dentist uses professional materials that cause less tooth sensitivity and produce more consistent results.
