According to a recent American Dental Association survey, over 50 percent of people have used a whitening toothpaste in the past six months. Of all the whitening options, “toothpastes are the slowest to provide results, but are a good maintenance tool,” says Atlanta cosmetic dentist Ronald E. Goldstein, DDS. What does the ADA have to say on the matter?
“All toothpastes help remove surface stain through the action of mild abrasives. Whitening toothpastes in the ADA Seal of Acceptance program have special chemical or polishing agents that provide additional stain removal effectiveness. Unlike bleaches, these ADA Accepted products do not alter the intrinsic color of teeth.”
