Some of these trends are perfectly safe under your supervision, and some might be harmful to your teeth. So, let your patients know the facts when helping them find an effective tooth whitening solution.
The effect of UV whitening lights is temporary, and can dehydrate the teeth. This can lead to shade relapse and more work in a patient's regimen.
Purple toothpaste creates an illusion rather than addressing the core problem. The color offsets teeth yellowing on a shallow surface level.
The upside to teeth whitening pens is that they're great for touch-ups between tray or in-office whitening treatments. Patients can take better control of whitening maintenance.
With charcoal toothpaste, the irregular shapes of the charcoal shards stick in between teeth. Plus, it can be abrasive enough to damage the outer enamel.
If patients use a brand of whitening toothpaste with very low abrasion, and leaves out unnecessary ingredients like peroxide (since it washes away too quickly to be effective), it will optimize the surface whitening of their teeth. We recommend Opalescence™ Whitening Toothpaste in either formula.
Peroxide is talked about a lot in tooth whitening, because it’s what ignites the whitening process in the tooth. But, what about some of the secondary ingredients? What else makes whitening the most effective?
Hydrogen Peroxide ignites the whitening process in the tooth.
Frequent between-meal consumption of foods high in sugars and starches can promote tooth decay. Xylitol may reduce the risk of tooth decay.
