Toothpaste Can’t Erase All Stains
Almost every toothpaste claims to bleach teeth, but as we age our teeth gradually turn yellow or gray, despite all the whitening toothpastes we use repeatedly. 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 bring about staining and discoloration. You probably have already observed 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 eliminate the build-up and help restore the former color.
Call Gustafson Morningstar Dentistry at 248-541-8770 to schedule an appointment and we will explain the difference between these tooth bleaching ingredients and how they may influence your smile whitening results.
