Did you know that your teeth get their color from their inner layer of dentin, not from the outer layer of enamel? As we age, dentin can deepen in color, leading to yellow teeth. Aging dentin is just one cause of tooth discoloration and staining treatable with teeth whitening here at Time Square Dental Group.

Over time, teeth can be stained by a variety of causes. Some are dietary: teeth can be stained by beverages like coffee, wine, and soda, as well as foods with dark pigment, such as berries and dark sauces. Other causes are non-dietary substances such as tobacco, and some antibiotic medications.

These and other causes of staining and discoloration can be addressed with a professional teeth cleaning at Time Square Dental Group. While there is no shortage of whitening products available over-the-counter, these vary in effectiveness and can cause serious damage if misused. An in-office with Dr. Razan Daccak is fast, safe, and produces better results.

Part of why a professional whitening is a superior choice is our use of a laser. Lasers are used in many procedures in dentistry. During a whitening, lasers accelerate and heighten the effect of whitening gel for better, faster results.

Before beginning any whitening regimen, you should consult with a dentist. If you would like to learn more about how a laser teeth whitening treatment can benefit you, please call our dental office in Pasadena, TX. We are eager to help you achieve the bright smile you’ve always wanted.
