Can crest 3d toothpaste make your smile whiter? Enamel renewal and stain protection ?

Probably not: A lot of the advertisements you see on television for toothpaste, mouthwash, and toothbrushes are overly dramatized. These ads are designed to make you buy more products at inflated prices. Toothpaste does not really work to whiten because the whitening agent is not on your teeth long enough. The most economical way to effectively whiten is with custom made trays and whitening gel from a dentist. ...Read more
