Does Whitening Toothpaste Work?

Are yellowing teeth getting you down? If so, you are not alone! Some of the most common concerns of our patients at Shwarts Family Dentistry in Richardson  have to do with teeth whitening.

Because many over-the-counter dental products say they can lighten your teeth, it’s natural to consider giving them a try.

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 usually results in whitening by roughly one shade.

Professional teeth whitening, on the other hand, can generally lighten your teeth anywhere from three to eight shades. That is quite a difference!

At Shwarts Family Dentistry in Richardson we have two options for our patients: Zoom! in-office treatment that whitens teeth in just one appointment, and a take-home kit that lets you whiten your teeth at your own pace.

We think you’ll agree, there really is no comparrison. For the best results, professional teeth whitening wins every time. It’s just one of the cosmetic dentistry services we use to improve smiles, at Shwarts Family Dentistry in Richardson. Schedule an appointment with us today.
