Shopping for back to school used to be limited to clothes, school supplies, backpacks, etc. But your columbia dentist Dr.Wych suggests adding one more thing to your list that will really boost your child’s confidence…teeth whitening!
Is your child nervous about starting school or college?
Many students get nervous around this time of year. Tougher schedules, more responsibilities and new friends can be intimidating, and making them feel more confident can be a huge part of the back to school process. And a whiter smile can make it easier for them to get a job or meet new friends!
We all know how important first impressions are, and when people are happy with their smile, they tend to appear more self-assured and happy. People tend to equate a positive demeanor with success.
After a summer full of foods and drinks that can stain the teeth, now is a great time for teeth whitening, just in time for school picture day! You can whiten their smile and create a healthy oral care routine.
Over-the-counter whiteners usually require overnight applications with extended treatments each time that can be difficult and disturb a good night’s sleep. This is especially hard for children who are starting new bedtime hours to have a full night’s rest for the school year. For daytime over-the-counter applications, it’s often tough for children to sit still for extended periods of time.
How can you conveniently brighten your child’s smile before school starts?
Our teeth whitening procedure is a much quicker process than the OTC and they typically attain a brilliance several shades whiter than store-bought applications are able to provide. Plus, teeth whitening treatments by your Columbia dentist create a much more consistent level of whiteness because the gels are customized to your unique smile.
When you’re building positive dental experiences for children, take the extra step to have their teeth whitening procedure supervised by your Columbia dentists.
There’s not much time left before school is back in session, so now is the perfect time for teeth whitening, before classwork or the pressures of school become overwhelming.
