How Do Whitening Toothpastes Work?



Whitening toothpastes act like regular toothpastes when you brush, loosening food particles and plaque, so the bristles of your toothbrush can whisk them away. In addition to their cleansing ingredients, whitening toothpastes contain ingredients that address staining and discoloration.

Some products feature mild abrasives that polish the teeth to remove some of the material that causes staining. Other formulas deliver results with ingredients called chemical chelates. These substances can help draw the material that makes up stains out of the dental enamel.

Varieties of Whitening Toothpaste



In addition to whitening toothpastes that offer basic cleaning and whitening, you can find formulas that offer additional benefits for your teeth and gums. Some products contain substances that help to fight the formation of tartar and can help to keep your teeth clean between visits to the dentist.

Whitening toothpastes for sensitive teeth can help to ease discomfort due to worn away dental enamel and can lessen feelings of pain when eating and drinking hot and cold foods and beverages.

Natural whitening toothpastes generally contain fewer chemical ingredients than other products and can be a desirable choice for individuals who are sensitive to certain synthetics. If you're not sure what kind of whitening toothpaste is right for you, your dentist can give you advice on what to look for in products.

Completing Your Whitening Oral Care Routine



Teeth whitening toothpastes can make improvements in the appearance of your smile on their own but you can also enhance their benefits by using them with other teeth whitening products. Whitening gels, strips, mouthwashes and other products can be combined to create a complete oral care routine for addressing stains.
