When a professional advises one to use these two products on their teeth...they know they will see you in the future for repairs. If you want really white teeth and a good cleaning along with good oral hygiene doesn't give you this, then you're seeing the true color of your teeth. If you want whiter teeth then think about veneers to have a whiter smile..
