Is teeth whitening safe for kids?

It is not safe for kids to undergo teeth whitening, with it working best on adults of at least 18 years of age. There are ample chances for sensitivity to set in especially in teenagers, so teeth whitening should be more just to maintain the beautiful looks and not turn addictive. Parents can play a vital role in inculcating good eating and dental habits in their children and discourage the use of over-the-counter teeth whitening products like teeth whitening strips, gels, pens and mouth guards. However the use of mouth rinses, flosses, whitening toothpastes and gums prove quite safe.
