Does Whitening Toothpaste Work?

Are yellowing teeth getting you down? If so, you are not alone! At St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville, we whiten teeth with cosmetic dentistry every day.

There are a lot of over-the-counter products out there, and it may seem like the best thing is to whiten your teeth yourself. Things like toothpaste and whitening strips say they can whiten your teeth, and they’ll appeal to anyone with a do-it-yourself attitude.

Whitening toothpastes work by adding chemical agents that gently polish and whiten teeth. However, these substances can only remove stains that are on the surface of the teeth. This generally results in whitening by about one shade.

Professional-strength whitening, though, can generally enhance your teeth up to eight shades. That is quite a difference!

At St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville, teeth whitening will give you a brilliant new smile you’ll love. It’s just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures we offer. Find out what we can do for your smile by calling us today!
