You Should Only Use a Whitening Toothpaste that Has Been Approved by the ADA

Posted .

Removing minor surface stains from the teeth in your smile is important in preventing them from setting deeper into the tooth enamel. Without regular measures to counteract this effect, you could end up with a deeply stained smile that requires professional whitening at Dental Designs of Bountiful.

One popular and convenient way to maintain your white smile between dental cleanings is to brush your teeth each evening with a whitening toothpaste that has been approved by the American Dental Association.

It’s important to always look for the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance before purchasing any whitening toothpaste. The seal represents that the toothpaste has been researched for effectiveness and tested for safe oral hygiene use.

You should also keep in mind that the hydrogen peroxide concentration used in retail-grade whitening toothpastes are only potent enough to remove minor stains.

If your smile suffers from more significant stains, Dr. David Duke will often recommend a dental bleaching treatment. This is the most effective method for fully eradicating stains from your teeth. You can then use whitening toothpaste to remove future surface stains before they have a chance to set in.
