The Wonderful World of Toothpaste

Colgate and Crest are one of the most recognizable and most used toothpaste brands in the world. As being one of the largest tooth paste companies, these two brands have many products that claim to aid in a variety of oral ailments, one of the most popular being teeth whitening. The immense amount of options makes choosing a toothpaste that works for you very difficult and it often takes many trials and errors for you to find one that satisfies your needs.  Here is a list of toothpastes that may work better for you and your teeth whitening needs.

    • Tom’s Whitening Toothpaste- Toms toothpaste is a popular brand among those who are health conscious people. Tom’s tooth paste claims to use natural products and contains less chemicals than the leading brands. In many people’s minds, less chemicals means less results.  However this is not the case for their whitening toothpaste that contains fluoride. Simply White® Toothpaste  contains no harmful bleaching chemicals and is the only whitening toothpaste to receive a ADA Seal (American Dental Association). Visit the Tom’s website for an extensive list explaining the uses of each ingredient.
    • Rembrandt Whitening Toothpaste- Rembrandt DEEPLY WHITE® is another effective tooth whitening toothpaste that claims to restore enamel and whiten teeth from the inside out.  One of the unique things about this tooth paste is that it contains peroxide which is a powerful teeth whitening ingredient used in professional teeth whitening systems. The science behind Rembrandt is the activation of the peroxide when brushing. The peroxide breaks down releasing ions that go into the pores of the enamel, attacking and whitening the stains to reveal whiter and healthier looking teeth. Deeply White is the first toothpaste to contain Active Dental Peroxide that is enamel safe and works to whiten both outside surfaces and inner stains. For more information on this toothpaste, you can visit the Rembrandt website.
    • Sensodyne® Pronamel Gentle Whitening Toothpaste- This toothpaste is perfect for those who have sensitive teeth because it gently whitens while protecting the enamel and keeping sensitive teeth feeling normal.  Teeth whitening toothpastes can often cause sensitivity and can be very painful for some people.  If you have sensitive teeth this toothpaste can give you the teeth whitening results you desire without the pain!  The special feature of this particular tooth paste is that it is one of the better toothpastes in protecting against the negative affects from the acidity of wine, soda, or fruit acids.
