Whitening

I’ve had so many patients ask me about whitening toothpastes. I’ve been out of school for about 3 years, and was told that the toothpastes aren’t strong enough nor on the teeth long enough to actually do anything but brighten to natural shade. Again 3 years ago..has something/anything changed that I could tell patients?

I really like Colgate Optic White toothpaste. It actually has hydrogen peroxide in it and I think it works good. I use it and recommend it to my patients that want a whitening toothpaste.

I am with Warner. Many just have abrasives that only remove extrinsic stain but there are some that have hydrogen peroxide that could help a bit with intrinsic stain. For real whitening, it may be necessary to use trays or another system.

Rembrandt IS and D work great for whitening surface stain and is the least abrasive of toothpastes on the market.
