Does Whitening Toothpaste Work?

Are yellowing teeth getting you down? If so, you are not alone! Everyone, it seems, would like to have whiter teeth and a better smile. Teeth whitening at Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City may be just what what you need.

Of course, there are lots of over-the-counter products you might want to try. Any grocery store will have plenty of options in the dental care aisle: just about every major brand of toothpaste offers a whitening version.

Whitening toothpastes work by adding chemical agents that can gently polish and whiten teeth. They do a fairly good job, and the abrasives in them are no harder on tooth enamel than ordinary toothpastes.  However, these products can only remove stains that are on the surface. This generally results in whitening by roughly one shade.

Professional whitening, on the other hand, can whiten your teeth up to eight shades. We offer Zoom! teeth whitening, a highly effective, light-activated procedure that can whiten your smile in just one visit!

Professional teeth whitening at Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City is just one of our cosmetic dentistry options. Other services include sleep apnea and snoring treatment. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!
