Many have used Whitening Toothpastes
to achieve the brighter smile they have always wanted, yet others wonder why it did not work as well for them. The difference is in the depth of staining and the strength of the enamel. Even your tooth density will play a role in how well a whitening agent will work. Most Whitening agents use a peroxide to create a chemical reaction in your mouth that can get into the dentin of your teeth and break up the deeper stains that have settled in your teeth. This dentin is the inside of the tooth. The enamel is meant to protect this part of the tooth, but years of eating and drinking can break down enough tooth enamel that the stains are no longer just on the surface but a part of the teeth.
The whitening toothpastes can effectively clean stains on the surface of your teeth, but they cannot clean stains behind the teeth enamel. Whitening toothpastes include chemicals or abrasives, which serve to clean the surface of the teeth. There is always the risk to damage the enamel of your teeth, if you use whitening toothpaste frequently. Some people have to go with a stronger option to get the results they want. Using tooth whitening gel
and mouth trays
are offering better results due to the length at which your teeth are in contact with the whitening agent. They are kept on your teeth for much longer. This gives the peroxides and other ingredients a chance to work deep into the dentin of the teeth. Tooth Whitening pastes are still an easy way to get results and to keep your teeth white, after bleaching procedure. The benefit of using whitening toothpaste is that it is often fortified with fluoride, which will strengthen teeth as well as help with tooth sensitivity
due to the bleaching process
. Tooth sensitivity can be a problem for some individuals.
One thing that the whitening toothpaste is good for is to preserve the color of the teeth
for longer period if your teeth have been whitened by dentist
or with at home whitening
kit which cleans inner teeth stains.
