How Exactly Does Whitening Toothpaste Work?

Posted on 3/13/2016 by Raymond Liu

One popular variety is whitening toothpaste, and you may be wondering exactly how a tube of toothpaste can make your teeth whiter.

How Does Whitening Toothpaste Work?

To an extent, all toothpastes will help to keep your smile white because they keep food particles off of your teeth, but to get the ADA whitening seal, toothpaste will need to contain stain-removing chemicals.

Whitening toothpaste doesn't contain bleaching products like hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, so they will clean the enamel rather than changing the color of your teeth. This will require regular use in order to reap the benefits.

Some people are more likely to achieve better results than others when it comes to whitening. If your teeth are tinted gray, it isn't likely that whitening will help. Brown teeth sometimes respond positively, while teeth tinted yellow could become a pearly white color again.

Why Might You Want to Use Whitening Toothpaste?

White teeth are more attractive and can make you feel more confident. Your smile will make the first impression when you meet a new person, both personally and professionally, and a nicer smile can send the message that you care for yourself and have high self-esteem. Additionally, whitening toothpaste is an affordable way to get the whiter teeth that you are looking for.

Are you considering whitening toothpaste in order to improve the color of your teeth and the appearance of your smile? Talk to your dentist. Whitening toothpaste isn't going to work for everyone, and there may be other options that can help you to get better results.

In fact, your dentist may provide chair-side or home whitening systems that can help you to get the results you desire in a fraction of the amount of time you'll need to spend using whitening toothpaste.
