cannot be treated by traditional whitening systems, but most patients with
dingy teeth actually have stains on the outer layer of enamel. Stains are

after a meal or snack. Foods and beverages, such as berries, candy, coffee, and
wine, will all penetrate the porous enamel and strip away its vibrancy. When
this takes place, it might be time to consider professional whitening.

whitening compound before the whitener is removed and the process is repeated a
With great oral hygiene habits and regular visits to the dentist, patients will
enjoy a smile that is multiple shades brighter for months on end.
