Does Whitening Toothpaste Work?

cosmetic dentistry Owensboro

Are yellowing teeth getting you down? If so, you are not alone! Some of the most common concerns of Philpot, Tell City, IN, and Hartford dental patients pertain to cosmetic dentistry procedures like teeth whitening.

Because many dental products such as toothpastes and mouthwashes say they can brighten your teeth, it’s natural to think about changing your brand of toothpaste.

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

On the other hand, plenty of Owensboro dentists offer speedy in-office teeth whitening procedures that can frequently illuminate your teeth anywhere from three to eight shades. That is quite a difference!

Once you see the dramatic changes that can happen with in-office whitening, why not go for the whole smile makeover? Using unprecedented cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers, crowns, inlays, braces, dental implants, bonding, and gum contouring, Owensboro dentists are helping patients get the marvelous look they desire.
