Wishing for a whiter smile but not sure how to get it? New to tooth whitening jargon? At Harris Dental in Phoenix, we educate patients on the variety of teeth whitening procedures, from whitening trays to over-the-counter products. We do smile lightening every day.
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 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 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 initial color.
Call Harris Dental in Phoenix to schedule a teeth whitening appointment, and we will explain the difference between these tooth bleaching ingredients and how they may impact your smile whitening results. We also offer general dentistry. Make an appointment today.
