Yes, whiteners can be used in children on nonpermanent teeth as well as permanent teeth. It is recommended that they be used under supervision or recommendation of a dentist.

Some whiteners can cause resorption of the root of the tooth in the baby teeth of children. These are the strong hydrogen peroxide containing bleaches.

Speak with your dentist first for an over the counter recommendation.
