While the enamel on your teeth is the strongest substance in your body, it is also very porous and prone to staining. Some of the most common ways to stain teeth are drinking coffee, tea, red wine, and smoking. Teeth can also be discolored as a side effect of taking medications such as Tetracycline, through nerve degeneration, or the natural aging process.
Whitening toothpastes can be used to temporarily minimize surface stains, but in the long term, their abrasive ingredients can wear down enamel and expose the yellow-colored tooth structure underneath (dentin). That is why professional teeth whitening is the best method for permanently removing deep stains and whitening your teeth to the level that you would like.
