Toothpaste Can’t Erase All Stains
Almost every toothpaste claims to whiten 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 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 spotted 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 get rid of the build-up and help restore the previous color.
Call Hereford Dental Health – Craig Longenecker DDS at 410-357-0099 to schedule an appointment and we will explain the difference between these tooth-bleaching ingredients and how they may impact your smile whitening results.
