Q: Does whitening toothpaste clean your teeth as well as regular toothpaste?

While these types of products are still cleaning your teeth, there is the possibility that they could lead to sensitivity issues or cavities. That’s because some of these products use special abrasives to remove surface stains. The special abrasives in these whitening products are often finer versions of what is used in regular toothpaste, so they are less likely to cause excessive tooth wear. However, we do recommend speaking with your dentist before trying a new product.

The safest way to whiten your teeth while achieving great results is to have it done professionally. Our Garden City Shopping Centre and St. Vital Centre locations both offer Phillips Zoom! Whitening, a professional whitening treatment that works around issues like sensitivity and stains to provide effective whitening even after just one treatment.
