Does Whitening Toothpaste Work?
In general, toothpastes use mild abrasives to remove stains on the surface of your teeth. In addition, whitening toothpaste contain chemical polishing agents that allow them to remove even more surface stains; so yes, they do work! Keep in mind though that they only remove stains on the surface of teeth, not deep inside the tooth. Whitening toothpastes can actually lighten your tooth color; but only by one shade because they generally do not contain a bleaching agent. At home whitening kits can help; they utilize hydrogen peroxide to remove both surface stains and stains deeper in the teeth. Remember, whitening toothpastes and store bought kits cannot produce the results you'll get from having whitening procedures in your dentist's office. Also, since everyone's teeth are different, everyone will have a different result with whitening.
