Although it may not feel like it in Chicago, spring is officially here. March 20th marked the vernal equinox. As earth’s axis tilts toward the sun, we can expect to see greener lawns and warmer weather. Spring also means weddings, school dances, graduations, and vacations. In fact, spring is the most popular time of the year to whiten your teeth! Dr. James Fondriest makes it easy to whiten your teeth with clinical-strength whitening systems that you can use in the comfort of your home.
Permanent Tooth Stains
Staining agents from food and beverages are naturally attracted to the enamel layer of your teeth. Beverages such as wine, coffee, tea, and dark sodas are capable of permanently staining your teeth. Tobacco use and the aging process may also permanently dull your smile.
Prescription Whitening Systems vs. Over the Counter Whitening Systems
Have you ever used an over the counter whitening products? Were you disappointed that your teeth weren’t noticeably whiter after using whitening toothpastes and rinses? Unfortunately, whitening products sold in stores only address surface stains on your teeth. They do not contain the concentration of bleaching agents found in prescription strength systems.
