Whitening Toothpaste Gel
Whitening toothpaste gel contains powerful active ingredients that work on the stains on your teeth to leave your smile beautifully brighter. Whitening gel toothpastes can be effective against stains from coffee, tea, smoking, red wine, and other stains caused by food and drink. Whitening toothpaste gel is designed to leave your mouth feeling clean and fresh while helping you to achieve a whiter smile.
Are Whitening Toothpastes Safe?
Using whitening toothpaste gel is generally considered a safe way to whiten your teeth at home and can be used as part of a complete oral care routine. Whitening toothpastes offer many of the same benefits as other toothpastes, including removing plaque and reducing the risk of cavities. For many people, whitening toothpaste gel effectively removes stains and leaves teeth looking whiter. However, some causes of tooth yellowing can only be addressed by a dentist. If you use whitening toothpaste gel for several weeks and are not satisfied by the results, then see your dentist for advice.
How to Choose a Whitening Toothpaste Gel
At Walgreens, we offer a range of whitening toothpaste gels. Each product offers its own unique benefits. For example, some whitening toothpaste gels offer protection against gum disease or help to remove tartar buildup from teeth. Other brands offer toothpaste gels that contain natural ingredients, including natural flavorings and whitening agents. Whether your priority is to protect yourself against gum disease or to avoid artificial colors and preservatives, there is most certainly a whitening toothpaste gel that suits your needs. Your dentist can advise you about your individual dental health concerns, such as your risk of developing gum disease, which could help you to make an informed choice about the type of whitening toothpaste you should use.
How to Use Whitening Toothpaste Gel
Most whitening toothpaste gels are used just like regular toothpaste. The product directions will usually direct you to brush your teeth using the gel at least twice a day, for a minimum of two minutes each time. Whitening toothpaste gels do not usually have an instant whitening effect, so you should keep using the product consistently over a period of several weeks to gradually whiten your smile. The refreshing effect of using a gel toothpaste is likely to be apparent right away, allowing you to enjoy fresher breath.
