Which Whitening Toothpaste is Right for You?

Toothpaste

We all want our teeth to look their whitest and brightest, but it’s not always easy to restrain those stains. But with the wonders whitening toothpaste, you don’t have to worry, you just have to whiten. Today’s whitening toothpastes can quickly remove any sign of stains and keep your teeth wonderfully white. Yet with so many powerful whitening toothpastes, the right choice is not always black-and-white.

Whitening has come a long way and today’s whitening toothpastes can whiten and brighten better than ever. While professional whitening by a family dentistry expert is always preferred for its immediate and dramatic results, you may just want to whiten at home if your staining is very mild or your budget is very limited. And over-the-counter whitening toothpastes are perfect for that purpose. These powerful products can take away stains, dissolve discoloration, remove plaque, strengthen enamel, and even stop new stains from forming.

Today, there are a wide variety of whitening toothpastes, but most of these dental care products contain one or more of the following powerful ingredients:

  • Hydrogen Peroxide: This is the basic form of the active ingredient in most tooth whitening products.
  • Carbamide Peroxide: This is a more concentrated form of hydrogen peroxide and is usually found in professional whitening formulas.
  • Sodium Bicarbonate: Another name for baking soda, it is a mild abrasive that helps clean teeth, freshen breath, and neutralize the acids that erode tooth enamel.
  • Sodium Monofluorophosphate: The formal name for fluoride, this helps prevent cavities and reduces the tooth sensitivity that some experience after whitening.
  • Hydrated Silica: A mild abrasive that cleans stains from teeth.

Now that you know what makes whiteners work, you may want to know which will work for you. Today, there are many whitening toothpastes available and some even have extra dental care benefits. To help you make the right white choice, consider these proven and popular products:

Arm & Hammer Advance White Extreme Whitening with Stain Defense – This toothpaste features a trifecta of whitening wonders. Peroxide for extra whitening. Baking soda to remove plaque and stains. And their patented Stain Defense technology helps prevent new stains from starting.

Rembrandt® Intense Stain®– Expertly formulated with special micro-polishers and a strong stain-fighting ingredient, this power-packed paste removes set-in stains, prevents new stains from forming, and strengthens tooth enamel.
