Does Whitening Toothpaste Work?

Are yellowing teeth getting you down? If so, you are not alone! Everyone, it seems, would like to have whiter teeth and a better smile. Teeth whitening at Beveridge Dental in San Jose CA may be just what what you need.

Of course, there are plenty of over-the-counter products you might want to try. Any grocery store will have plenty of options in the dental care aisle: every major brand of toothpaste, it seems, offers a whitening version.

Whitening toothpastes work by adding chemical agents that can gently polish and whiten teeth. They do a fairly good job, and the abrasives in them are no harder on tooth enamel than ordinary toothpastes. However, these products can only remove stains that are on the surface. This generally results in whitening by roughly one shade.

In-office teeth whitening, on the other hand, can whiten your teeth up to eight shades. At our practice, we offer two whitening options: Opalescence® teeth whitening, which can be completed with 1-2 visits, as well as our own, custom take-home trays. Both options are safe and effective.

Professional teeth whitening at Beveridge Dental in San Jose CA is just one of our cosmetic dentistry options. People throughout South San Jose, Los Gatos, Campbell, and Morgan Hill trust us with their smiles. Request your appointment today!
