Teeth are very important because these allow us to enjoy our foods of diversity throughout life; if we are able to keep them healthy and in fit condition. More fundamentally, teeth also play a vital role in ensuring that we get proper nutrition from our food; because in the absence of proper chewing, we won’t be able to take in different nutritious foods. This is the reason that the modern society has developed a code pertaining to oral health and care and brushing is one of the components that have been adopted almost universally throughout the world. However lately, we find specialized kinds of toothpaste that offer more than simply cleaning the teeth and oral cavity. Teeth whitening paste is one such product that many people reach out for. But people often query as regards the efficacy of such toothpaste and how these deliver the results. Dentists in Pune offer to provide rational answers to the queries whether such toothpaste really work?

What are teeth whitening toothpastes?

Teeth whitening pastes are the specially formulated products that contain more than normal proportion of abrasives like silica. The silica particles are rubbed off during brushing and the external stains and yellowish layer on the teeth is removed. The size and quality and type of the abrasives in such toothpaste is very important because these ultimately determine the extent of the results for the user. Conversely, the excess amount of abrasives may cause damage to the teeth enamel and gums while lesser amount could make the paste useless. Similarly, the size of abrasive particles is also important to develop the best results.

Who can seek to gain from teeth whitening kinds of toothpaste?

People who have developed stains on their teeth due to various reasons including tobacco use can benefit much from such kinds of toothpaste. Chewing of tobacco or even smokeless tobacco products usage for very long time can be the reason for the development of stains on teeth. Excessive use of coffee is also a reason for the development of stains on teeth and whitening toothpaste could be helpful in this regard.

A note of caution –

While the continuous and prescribed use of teeth whitening paste could help remove or lessen the stains on teeth, the results could be lost partially or even completely if the user reverts to the older habits responsible for stains and yellowish coloration. Hence clinics offering tooth whitening treatment in Pune recommend a change in habits also!

The efficacy of the results –

People sought answers from a leading dentist in a camp held in Pune for the query as to what extent the teeth whitening paste could be useful for them? It is true that the teeth whitening toothpaste do not offer equal results in all cases and the outcomes may vary greatly. The most important fact in this regard is that in cases where a person has grayish or yellowish teeth due to heredity may get the least of results! Thus for such people, the whitening paste could offer disappointment and they should be prepared for the much long use of it to get the results.
