  • I’d take her to the dentist and discuss with them. They will be able to talk about diet etc that may stain teeth.

  • I wouldn’t try teeth whitening at any age. I think it suppposed to weaken your teeth.

  • I personally wouldn’t allow it at that age, maybe just a whitening toothpaste?

  • Wondering about others don’t celebrate Halloween? Dont think it’s good ,specially with crazy people these days ,not safe .Also don’t know how old the lollies are or been handled ..

  • I think she can try the home whitening kits at that age.

  • what did you do, I wouldn’t let my 15 yr old do it

  • I’d say an adult so they can make their own informed decision!

  • Get them professionally cleaned at the dentist maybe?

  • Are they really in need of being whitened?

  • With ur permission I think u can do it at any stage

  • Tell her she is 15 and if she wants it done so bad she can wait till legal age ;-) good luck

  • I agree with jodie80 there is teeth whitening toothpaste there is no need for teeth whitening because it does eventually eat away your teeth;)

  • Be very careful using any whitening products at all. If she has any tiny holes etc the whitening products eat away at them.

  • You can get teeth whitening tooth paste..

  • The whitening kits that you can purchase from safeway or coles probably is safe. You could probably get her to use that?
