Wishing for a whiter smile but not sure how to get it? New to tooth whitening jargon?
At Kevin Bass DMD Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we educate patients on the variety of teeth whitening treatments; from whitening trays to teeth bleaching to opalescence whitening. We do smile lightening every day.
Toothpaste Can’t Erase All Stains
Almost every toothpaste claims to lighten teeth, but as we age our teeth gradually turn yellow or gray, despite all the whitening toothpastes we use often. Tooth enamel, while one of the hardest 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 observed that a toothbrush cannot clean these microscopic pores.
Carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide are the two main smile whitening ingredients. They can penetrate the outer layer of your teeth to eliminate the build-up and help restore the original color.
Call Kevin Bass DMD Cosmetic and Family Dentistry at 215-368-1424 to schedule an appointment and we will explain the difference between these tooth-bleaching ingredients and how they may impact your smile whitening results.
