Does Whitening Toothpaste Work?

12/06/2021

A white, bright smile has never been more sought after than now. Having white, healthy teeth can boost your confidence and improve your image. However, there are many aspects of our lifestyles that are counter-productive to having white teeth.

Drinks such as tea, coffee and red wine are the main beverages that have been linked to discoloured and stained teeth. Bad habits such as smoking also cause significant damage to your gums and teeth, the first sign being staining.

Due to the demand for bright and whiter teeth, the market is now saturated with toothpastes promising to whiten your teeth; but does whitening toothpaste actually work? Whitening toothpastes are able to remove surface stains caused by food, drink and smoking. They contain abrasive particles that polish the surface of the tooth and chemicals such as peroxide (a bleaching agent) to dissolve deeper stains. It is important to note that whitening toothpastes cannot remove or lighten a stain deeper than the surface of your tooth. Whitening toothpastes can also not change the natural shade of your teeth.

Whitening toothpastes take time and patience to work, some showing results within weeks of applying twice daily.

To whiten your teeth to an ‘unnatural’ bright shade of white and achieve lost-lasting results, you will need to invest in professional teeth whitening. Some off the shelf teeth whitening products can cause irreversible damage to your enamel and cause severe tooth sensitivity. Dental professionals use only the best, dentist approved products that can whiten your teeth whilst keeping your enamel intact.
