Toothpaste Can’t Erase All Stains
Almost every toothpaste claims to lighten teeth, but as we age our teeth gradually turn yellow or gray, despite all the whitening toothpaste we use often. Tooth enamel, while one of the most durable substances in the body, is porous. Over time, the food and drinks that come in contact with our teeth lead to staining and discoloration. You probably have already noticed that a toothbrush cannot clean these microscopic pores.
Carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide are the two main smile-whitening substances. They can penetrate the outer layer of your teeth to remove the build-up and help restore the original color.
Call Russell Anderson Jr. Dentistry at 770-419-2535 to schedule an appointment and we will explain the difference between these tooth-bleaching ingredients and how they may affect your smile whitening results.
