How Do Your Teeth Get Whiter with Whitening Toothpaste?
Posted on 2/15/2019 by Office
Do you want to whiten your teeth and hope to start off with whitening toothpaste? If so, you may get some good results depending on the brand that you choose. The whitening agents in these toothpaste varieties can leave you with a brighter, whiter smile, and if they are approved by the appropriate agency, they are perfectly safe for your teeth. How They Work Whitening toothpastes offer a variety of benefits. They can whiten the teeth by removing many of the surface stains, including those caused by drinking coffee or soda. To do this, whitening toothpastes often contain special chemicals and abrasives that remove stains while cleaning the teeth. However, unlike other whitening treatments, whitening toothpaste does not contain bleach. Get the Most from Your Whitening ToothpasteWhen you start using whitening toothpaste, you may be excited to get started and to see results immediately. Unfortunately, it may take a couple of weeks before you notice a difference. Whitening toothpaste won't change the actual color of your teeth, so as you whiten, you'll also want to change any stain-causing habits. For example, continuing to drink red wine, soda, and coffee might not produce optimal results. Choosing a Whitening ToothpasteIf you want to try a whitening toothpaste look for brands that are approved by a reputable dental organization. The American Dental Association provides a Seal of Acceptable to the products it has deemed safe and reliable when it comes to removing surface stains. While you can experience some results with whitening toothpaste, know that they will not compare to the results of whitening treatments, especially in-office treatments. If you want a long-lasting whitening treatment that will provide a dramatic difference in the appearance of your smile, give our office a call. We are happy to help you achieve the beautiful smile of your dreams....
