Does whitening toothpaste help?

The whitening products are fairly popular recently, being often purchased at the drugstores. They are designed help us make our teeth look healthy and beaming. The whitening toothpastes are the most frequent choice in that regard, though. They are useful not only for daily brushing and dental plaque removal, but restoring the original shine and look of the tooth as well.

What is a whitening paste?

A whitening paste is a product used to cleaning our teeth, while whitening them at the same time. It’s one of the simplest and cheapest ways of brightening the enamel. While purchasing one of these products, we should take a closer look at the packaging. The reason for that is that the whitening pastes have a higher RDA (Relative Dentin Abrasion) value. This means that the substances used as ingredients for these wear the enamel off harder in order to polish it as best as possible. The people with sensitive teeth should choose the toothpaste with as low RDA value as possible (the highest RDA value they should choose is 100). However, we should always keep in mind that even the people with healthy teeth shouldn’t pick the toothpaste with RDA value of 200. The other ingredients of the whitening toothpaste are triclosan, menthol, eucalyptus oil and anti-inflammatory substances such as allantoin or herbal extracts. They melt the biofilm, whitening the teeth at the same time.

Performance and effectivity

Using the whitening toothpastes is generally characterized by a high effectivity. We can notice a huge improvement even after a single month. Using the whitening toothpastes is the right solution, as during a long treatment we can slowly notice the gradual whitening of the enamel. Thanks to that, we can stop using the paste at any time, once the color of our teeth starts to meet our expectations. Some people care about the natural, white color, as they don’t want their teeth to look artificially white. That’s why using such toothpastes is so advantegous.

No risk

It’s very important to buy the toothpastes of the correct type. Most of them are avaible at local drugstores, which won’t make the things easier for us. That’s why it’s a good idea to ask our dentist for advice. Their knowledge about both the whitening toothpastes in general and the state of our teeth will allow them to recommend the right product to us. But if we really want to make the choice by ourselves, buying our first whitening toothpaste at a pharmacy is a good idea. Such paste will not only whiten our teeth, but it’s also going to take care of their health. The whitening process itself will be long, but effective. Once we’ll notice that our teeth look the way we want, we can go back to using our regular toothpaste. The whitening toothpastes are pricier than the regular ones, but it’s still the cheapest way of brightening the enamel. That’s why trying it out is so worth it.
