Pasadena Teeth Whitening

In recent years’ teeth whitening in Pasadena has grown in significantly in popularity. It is a fast, affordable way to improve your appearance and take years off of your smile. Bright teeth are a sign of health, youth and vitality. If your teeth are stained it can take a toll on your self-esteem and make you feel unattractive. Professional teeth whitening can make a big impact on your aesthetic appearance and how you feel about yourself.

As Robert Frost so eloquently stated, “nature’s first green is gold.” Baby teeth are whiter than adult teeth, that is one reason why white teeth are linked to youthfulness. Over time teeth can become yellowish or stained due to genetics, food and drinks, and the use of antibiotics. Sometimes they simply darken with age.

Issues with Tooth Appearance

Issues with tooth enamel and dentin can cause internal discoloration. This is often the result of tooth decay, development disorders, too much fluoride use, root canal complications, early antibiotic use, and a host of other reasons. The leading cause of external tooth stains is exposure to tobacco, food tannins, coffee, tea and more.

Improving Your Smile

Luckily, it is easy to improve your smile and your dentist can offer you a variety of ways to achieve your goal.

To improve the look of your smile, there are a variety of ways to whiten your teeth. The most common approaches are professional tooth whitening in a dental office, professional kits you can use at home, and over the counter products.

Ways to Whiten Your Teeth

Professional whitening treatment is the preferred method. Your dentist uses stronger agents, and is skilled at protecting your mouth and gums from exposure to these materials. The most effective tooth whitening systems include a buffer in the bleaching gel to protect enamel from damage. These high quality products are extremely effective and can transform discolored teeth just one visit. In about an hour you can expect your teeth to brighten up to 10 shades. Results can last for several years, depending on your oral hygiene practices.

Professional whitening in a dental office is just the first step. It is likely your dentist will suggest a take home kit as part of your tooth whitening treatment plan.Here at Town Square Dental, we offer teeth whitening in Pasadena, TX and will provide you with all the information you need regarding the process.
