A frequent question we’re asked by patients and parents in Carmichael CA is if they can get their teeth whitened while their braces are still on. Who doesn’t want a nice white smile? According to American River Orthodontics, the answer is you can in fact have them whitened, but it is not recommended. Dr. Payne says, when you get your braces off after whitening, you may have yellow squares on your teeth where the brackets were. The best thing you can do instead is to use a whitening toothpaste, mouthwash and floss! Don’t forget you should brush them after every meal.
As soon as those braces are off we at American River Orthodontics will clean them and whiten them for you! If your son or daughter is still not content with the color of their teeth, you can buy over the counter whitening strips or even go to your local dentist in Carmichael CA and have them whiten them for you!
