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 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 substances. They can penetrate the outer layer of your teeth to get rid of the build-up and help restore the initial color.
Call Beam Smile Design in Nashville TN at 615-616-9885 to schedule an appointment. We will explain the difference between these tooth-bleaching ingredients and how they may affect your smile-whitening results.
