How Effective Is Your Whitening Toothpaste? May 27, 2017

How Effective Is Your Whitening Toothpaste?, Anchorage, Alaska

The first thing a person often notices about someone is their smile, and a set of dazzling white teeth is always an instant attention grabber. The experts at Family First Dentistry in Anchorage, AK, have mastered the art of removing accumulated coloration on teeth using their Zoom teeth whitening treatment, restoring your smile to a pearly finish in just an hour. While many people opt to stop into their dentist’s office for a teeth whitening treatment, it’s hard to pass the toothpaste section at the drugstore and not wonder if there’s another solution.

teeth whitening treatmentThe most important thing to know about the teeth whitening toothpaste you find in the store is that they don’t change the actual color of your teeth. Whitening toothpaste contains abrasive ingredients such as silica and works by scrubbing each surface of the tooth to remove stains. It’s important not to counteract these effects by staying away from discoloration culprits like coffee, red wine, and tobacco. With this in mind, it can take several weeks after the start of using teeth whitening toothpaste to see the results.

The effectiveness of this toothpaste also hinges on what color your teeth originally were. Unless you already have naturally white teeth, whitening toothpaste will not give you the same dramatic results as a Zoom teeth whitening treatment at the dentist. They also won’t be able to change the color of any dental work such as crowns and fillings.

For a quicker path to a brighter smile, book an appointment at Family First Dentistry for a teeth whitening treatment. Their options include Zoom in-office whitening using professional teeth whitening technology or at-home whitening trays custom fit for your teeth. Call (907) 562-2820 to schedule your next visit, or head to their website to see a full list of dental services. You can also find the team on Facebook and Twitter.
