Toothpaste Can’t Erase All Stains
Almost every toothpaste claims to brighten teeth, but as we age our teeth gradually turn yellow or gray, despite all the whitening toothpastes we use regularly. Tooth enamel, while one of the toughest substances in the body, is porous. Over time, the food and drinks that come in contact with our teeth result in 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 agents. They can penetrate the outer layer of your teeth to clear away the build-up and help restore the original color.
Call West Jordan Dental Office to schedule an appointment and we will explain the difference between these tooth bleaching ingredients and how they may influence your smile whitening results.
