Tobacco Use Can Affect Your Oral Health in Several Different Ways

Each year more and more Americans are ceasing tobacco use to improve their overall health. At the same time, the Centers for Disease Control estimate that nearly 40 million Americans still use some form of tobacco product.

While many people are aware of the threats tobacco use poses to circulatory and respiratory health, Dr. Razan Daccak also points out the negative impact it can have on one’s oral health.

Cosmetically, the tar and chemicals in tobacco cause deep stains your teeth and give you pervasive and chronic bad breath. The only way to effectively whiten your smile is by receiving a dental bleaching treatment at Time Square Dental Group. Bear in mind that if you continue to use tobacco after your teeth have been whitened, the same staining issues will return.

We use a dental laser at Time Square Dental Group that helps us to brighten tooth color so your smile can look pearly white once more. Our professional teeth whitening treatments utilize a powerful yet safe whitening gel that is applied to the surface of your teeth. This gel works to lighten the appearance of stains, discoloration, and yellowing on the tooth enamel. Teeth whitening is often available in both in-office and take-home systems.

If you use tobacco and are concerned about the impact on your smile, please call Time Square Dental Group’s in Pasadena, Texas at (832) 426.4433. Dr. Razan Daccak and our team are happy to help you restore your healthy smile any way we can.
