Toothpaste Can’t Erase All Stains
Almost every toothpaste claims to whiten teeth. But is it an uphill battle? As we age our teeth gradually turn yellow or gray, despite all the whitening toothpastes we use.
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 result in staining and discoloration. You probably have already discovered 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 clear away the build-up and help restore the former color.
