I brush regularly, why did my teeth turn yellow?
Our teeth work very hard for us. They get stained through normal daily use. Brushing may not be able to remove those stains. Some daily habits may increase the problems with staining.
- dark sodas
All contain ingredients that cause staining to your enamel.
Do those over the counter teeth whitening products work?
You may have found yourself holding store teeth whitening products, wondering if they are worth the money. The answer is “kinda.” In order to be sold over the counter, they do not contain the levels of peroxide that we can administer under the care of our dentist, Dr. King.
- Over the counter products generally contain 3% peroxide.
- King Dental prescribed At-home whitening kits contains from 3% to 20% peroxide, based on your need.
- King Dental In-office whitening contains 15% to 43% peroxide, based on your need.
