How Effective are Whitening Toothpastes?

Whitening toothpastes are ideal for removing surface stains such as those caused by coffee, smoking or the consumption of sugary drinks. When used after a whitening treatment, patients often discover that whitening toothpastes help to maintain results.

While the chemicals dissolve stains, special abrasives found in whitening toothpastes gently polish the teeth.  It’s important to note that whitening toothpastes cannot alter the natural color of your teeth or reduce a stain that goes deeper than the tooth’s surface. Tooth enamel can be damaged if whitening toothpaste is used excessively, so be sure to follow the instructions.

If you are ready to begin your teeth whitening treatment, make sure that there is a seal of approval from an organization such as the American Dental Association. This seal specifies that the toothpaste is safe and effective at eliminating surface stains.
