How to choose the best whitening toothpaste?
Does toothpaste include Short-term whitening or long-lasting polishing against stains?
Whitening toothpaste contains active oxygen, carbon, and zinc peroxide in makeup. They have an immediate effect by lightly coloring the gums, tongue, or enamel with a red or blue tint, which gives the impression that you have whiter teeth. But only overnight. For a real whitening effect that lasts over the long term, use polishing agents such as silica, perlite, or sodium bicarbonate instead. These are effective after 15 days of daily use. By lightly abrading the enamel, they reduce and remove stains from coffee or tobacco.
Does toothpaste include Antiseptic agents that limit the formation of tartar?
Triclosan and chlorhexidine are two anti-bacterial that inhibit the formation of tartar and plaque. With their anti-inflammatory properties, they protect the gums and limit odors. However, due to its impact on hormone regulation, whitening toothpaste containing triclosan will not be recommended for pregnant women and children.
Does toothpaste include remineralizing agents to prevent cavities?
Fluoride is sometimes criticized because of the risks caused by its overdose (white or brown spots on the teeth, bone weakness). However, at low doses, potassium and sodium fluorides are very effective in preventing the formation of cavities since they remineralize and protect the enamel from acid attacks.
It is advisable to avoid aggressive detergents but to favor fluorides.
Most whitening toothpaste contains abrasive polishing agents, which can weaken tooth enamel. It is therefore advisable for people with hypersensitivity to use products enriched with stannous fluoride and potassium nitrate. These allow a significant reduction in tooth sensitivity. As for people prone to periodontitis and gingivitis, sodium lauryl sulfate is not recommended. Frequently used as an anti-bacterial detergent to remove plaque, it is also known to irritate the gums and promote canker sores.
Toothpaste Active Ingredients
Fluoride: a mineral that strengthens enamel. It, therefore, wears less quickly and is less attacked promptly by microbes in the mouth. Adult toothpaste should contain between 1000 and 1500 ppm (parts per million) of fluoride (see the ingredients on the tube or the packaging). We recommend a dose of 1450ppm for adults. For children between two and six years old, a quantity of 1000 and 1450 ppm prevails, for children up to two years, the maximum dose is 1000 ppm.
Abrasives are necessary to prevent surface attacks on the teeth (leftover food, coffee, tea, etc.).Both whitening toothpaste and regular toothpaste contain it. They consist of tiny grains, whose size, hardness, and concentration differ from one toothpaste to another. Too high an abrasive rate wears out the enamel faster and makes the teeth attackable faster.
Flavors and aromas like mint or anise give the toothpaste a fresh taste. Sorbitol and saccharin provide a sweet taste.
Humectants keep the toothpaste moist in the tube, so it stays fluid.
Detergents needed to lather the toothpaste. The toothpaste is more easily spread around all the teeth. If you are prone to canker sores, check for sodium lauryl sulfate. This substance slows the healing of canker sores.
Tips for whiter teeth
Sage: Sage is antibacterial and astringent. For whiter teeth, you can easily chew or grate a sage leaf and mix it with your toothpaste!
Turmeric: simply use a toothbrush – ideally with a specially designed – a little bit of ground turmeric on your teeth and let it work for about 3 minutes. Then rinse thoroughly! The effect is rather subtle, but it helps!
Strawberries: This tip may sound somewhat contradictory at first, but the hydroxycarboxylic acid contained in the berries helps to remove stains. For an optimal result, crush a strawberry and mix with about 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder. Then apply the resulting paste to the teeth and let it work for a maximum of 5 minutes. Then rinse thoroughly and brush your teeth. In order not to burden the enamel, it is advisable not to use this strawberry mixture more than once a week!
Baking powder: Baking soda works wonders for your teeth! It is best to mix a few teaspoons of baking soda with a little water or lemon juice into a paste and then apply it to the teeth. Rinse off after about a minute. After a while, you will notice a definite difference!
Banana peel: This tip is a little unusual, but relatively easy to try! Rub your teeth inside an organic banana peel for about 2 minutes. After another 10 minutes, brush your teeth with a toothbrush – initially without toothpaste – to distribute the abrasion well. At the very end, you can brush your teeth regularly. The minerals contained in the banana peel are said to get directly into the teeth in this way, which in turn should make them whiter. The procedure should be repeated at least once a day over approximately 3 weeks to achieve a good result!
Oil pulling: The so-called oil pulling is a centuries-old cleaning ritual from Ayurveda, which among other things, serves to strengthen and clean teeth and gums. It also helps whiter teeth.
