Why whitening toothpastes are bad for your teeth

by mortadm, on 26th February 2010 | 0 comments

Some ‘whitening’ toothpastes actually contain abrasives which rub away the surface enamel of the tooth as well as damage the gums and as a result can leave dentin exposed causing acute sensitivity as well as leaving the user prone to decay.

These whitening toothpastes only contain a very weak and small amount of the substances used in professional chemical teeth whitening and as such, would probably never help the user reach the shade desired.

To safely and effectively lighten your teeth to their naturally whitest shade, you should visit your dentist for professional teeth bleaching, there’s no way around it!
