Whitening Toothpastes:
How Do They Work?

Whitening toothpastes and home-remedy whitening procedures have become extremely popular in recent years. Many people prefer them to the expensive, and sometimes uncomfortable, teeth-whitening cosmetic procedures that are performed by dentists.


Whitening toothpastes have several benefits. They can help whiten your teeth by removing surface stains—such as those caused by drinking coffee or smoking—and they can also be used after bleaching treatments to help maintain results. To remove surface stains, whitening toothpastes typically include special abrasives and chemicals that clean teeth and remove stains.

If you are suffering from tooth sensitivity and looking for a toothpaste to help give you whiter teeth, you should consider Sensodyne® True White®. That way, you’ll be able to get the best of both worlds: a low-abrasive toothpaste that provides relief from the pain of sensitivity* while also helping to whiten your teeth by gently lifting stains.
