A Smile That’s Whiter Than Your Pearls
Whitenimg Toothpaste!

Keeping teeth white in constant contact with food and drink is quite a challenge. However, whitening toothpastes and pastes developed especially for this purpose can sometimes offer a good alternative to those who encounter such problems.

But are the whitening toothpastes that stand out with their comfortable use really as effective as they are thought to be and can they give you that gorgeous smile you are after? 

What Is A Whitening Toothpaste?

Teeth undergo discoloration due to the consumption of beverages such as tea and coffee and the continuation of bad habits such as smoking. Stains and darkening may occur on the teeth as a result of neglecting regular oral care. Such problems, which overshadow aesthetic beauty, also have a bad effect on the psychology of the individual and can be corrected with sufficient attention to oral hygiene. 

Whitening toothpastes can be used to restore teeth that have turned yellow, gray and black due to various factors. These pastes, which have a whitening effect when applied regularly to the teeth thanks to their special ingredients, have the consistency of paste and can support the treatment of people with yellow teeth. However, in cases where the discoloration is too deep, it may be necessary to resort to more professional whitening methods.

How Does Whitening Toothpaste Work?

The use of whitening toothpaste is a simple home remedy for teeth whitening. For this reason, it is often included in daily dental care, but the effect of whitening toothpastes varies depending on the ingredients used. Especially whitening toothpastes containing blue covarine, which causes an optical illusion on the teeth, can help remove superficial stains by showing an immediate effect. In general, a whitening toothpaste used regularly, twice a day, can contribute to tooth whitening within 2 to 6 weeks. Although whitening toothpastes have been developed to maximize oral care, they are basically only effective on superficial staining and cannot cause a change in the natural color of the teeth.

In other words, even with routine use, it cannot have an effect on deeper stains. It is also uncertain whether it can make a significant difference to the smile and, with prolonged use, it can erode tooth enamel and cause more risky tooth and gum problems.

For this reason, it may be more beneficial to limit the use of foods and beverages such as these in order to prevent tooth staining, and to clean the teeth thoroughly after use:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Red wine
  • Tobacco and tobacco products,
  • Smokeless tobacco products
  • Colorful foods such as beets and blueberries

What Can Be Done Instead Of Whitening Toothpaste?

One of the easiest methods to get rid of yellow teeth caused by daily nutrients is the use of whitening toothpaste. However, even if whitening toothpaste helps whiten teeth to some extent, it does not have the expected lasting effect and its effects almost never appear after the first brushing. It also carries the risk of wearing down the enamel, especially in the long term. 

For this reason, it is best to prefer the use of whitening toothpaste in combination with other whitening treatments and according to the doctor’s recommendation. Here are some of the professional treatments you can choose instead of whitening toothpaste:

  • Tartar cleaning
  • Scaling
  • Regular gum care
  • Clinical bleaching
  • Clinical tray operation

Professional whitening applications treat not only superficial stains on the teeth, but also deep-seated discolorations. In addition, it reduces the risk of tooth loss by preventing the formation of bacteria and tartar in the mouth. With regular oral care, functional problems are eliminated along with aesthetic problems in the mouth.

If you want to get detailed information about teeth whitening applications applied with the help of special devices and apparatus that do not damage tooth enamel, you can contact your dentist.
