If you have been wanting a brighter smile, we can help! At the dental office of Dr. Carlos Rojas and Associates in Paterson, New Jersey, one of our most popular requests for treatment for a more appealing smile is teeth whitening. In as little as one treatment, teeth whitening can brighten your smile. Our professional system uses a powerful, safe whitening gel applied to tooth enamel. This gel lightens stains, discoloration, and any yellowing on the teeth. Do you know what might be dulling your pearly whites?

1- Food and beverages: berries, certain candies, coffee, tea, and red wine can attach to the tooth enamel and stain it.

2- Tobacco use: tar and nicotine can darken teeth.

3- Medications: drugs such as antibiotics, antipsychotics, antihistamines, and high blood pressure medications can alter tooth enamel.

4- Age: as enamel thins out over time, the yellower dentin layer beneath comes through.

5- Trauma: injury can darken tooth color because the tooth creates more dentin in response to an injury.

Remember to maintain your healthy smile by brushing and flossing daily and seeing your dentist every six months for professional cleanings. But if your smile can use a boost, our experienced dental team is pleased to provide teeth whitening for our patients in Paterson, New Jersey.
