Have you noticed that your pearly whites aren’t so pearly? Tooth staining and discoloration can happen naturally over time for many reasons. As we get older, the outer layer of enamel on our teeth is slowly worn away, eventually revealing the darker dentin layer underneath. Our teeth can also discolor from smoking, drinking coffee, tea, and wine, and from taking certain medications or antibiotics. But you don’t have to settle for a dull or discolored smile. Professional teeth whitening from Dr. Scotto-Lavino can fully restore your teeth to their true hue and brightness.

What about Teeth Whitening Toothpaste and Strips?
Given the number of teeth whitening options, how do you know which one is right for you? The first thing to consider is that teeth whitening can be achieved in one of two ways. A product can either bleach your teeth using peroxides that remove both deep and surface stains, or work to physically or chemically remove surface stains only with non-bleaching ingredients. Teeth whitening toothpastes fall into the latter category. They can’t change the color of your enamel and so are generally ineffective for correcting yellowed teeth or removing deep stains. Other over-the-counter products like teeth whitening strips, rinses, and gels, do contain the necessary bleaching agents; however, they are heavily diluted. It can take several weeks of daily use before these products begin to work, leaving you at risk for gum irritation and inflammation from the prolonged exposure.
