Have you ever noticed that when you go to buy toothpaste, there is a wall of different kinds of toothpaste to choose from? How do you know which one is for you?
It’s always wise to consult your dentist before changing your toothpaste to avoid spending more than you need to. Also, if you use whitening toothpaste, this can cause your teeth to become sensitive and then you may need to switch to the more expensive sensitivity toothpaste.
The general idea is that the proper dental hygiene procedures should actually keep your teeth white enough so you don’t need to spend extra on whitening toothpaste. Brushing at least two times a day, flossing once a day and going to the dentist twice a year for cleanings helps to ensure that your teeth stay their whitest.
If proper dental hygiene does not make your teeth the shade you would like, you should consider tooth whitening with your dentist. One good dental whitening program is called Zoom! Whitening and we have this available at our office. Call our office for more information.
