I would suggest you see a dentist to discuss all your tooth whitening options before doing anything. ...Read more

Since a lot of toothpastes contain whitening products, what should I be using? I am asking this because I'm told whitening toothpastes are abrasive.

Obviously, kidding about last part, but your brushing technique and flossing are probably more significant than type of paste. There is an rda index which rates the abrasiveness of toothpastes. Google to find yours. ...Read more
