Many people buy whitening toothpastes in the hope that brushing will give their teeth an extra sparkle, but do whitening toothpastes work and what can you do to get a gorgeous, white smile?
Does whitening toothpaste work?
There is some debate over the efficacy of whitening toothpastes and studies have shown that using whitening toothpaste has little effect on the actual shade of the teeth. Using toothpaste and sticking to a good daily brushing routine does help to remove surface stains and polish the teeth, but in terms of actually altering the shade of the teeth, it seems that whitening treatment is the only option.
If your teeth are prone to staining, regular hygiene sessions can help to keep them clean and make them look brighter and whiter. Hygienists provide much more powerful cleaning than brushing at home and regular sessions can really make a difference.
