Which Stain Removal Toothpastes Are ADA Approved?

Feb 8, 2018

Do your friends or family love taking pictures? Selfies? If you’re uncomfortable with how white (or not white) your teeth will appear in the photos, how do you deal with it? If you’re looking for a simple, inexpensive way to whiten your teeth, what’s the best product to reach for? Whether you’re looking for a quick fix or a long-term change, one of the easiest solutions is an item you should be using every day anyway, your toothpaste.

Teeth whitening toothpaste is a popular fix for yellowing teeth because all you need to do is replace the toothpaste you’re currently using. When searching for great toothpaste, make sure it is an ADA Stain Removal Toothpaste and that it will pair well with your likes. For example, Tom’s of Maine products are made with natural ingredients so it would be a great option if you are concerned about using natural teeth whitening.

If you suffer from sensitive teeth, you don’t have to give up on using whitening toothpaste. Luckily, there are several options on the market that are specialized in caring for sensitive teeth while also whitening them. If none of the toothpaste we recommend is working for you, then we suggest you make an appointment with your dentist and talk about getting your teeth professionally whitened.

As with any other teeth whitening solutions, the level of whiteness relies on you. Drinking red wine or coffee, or heavy smoking can affect how quickly your toothpaste works for you. If you have any questions or are looking into other ways you can whiten your teeth, feel free to contact us.
