In brief: Teeth whitening

You can use over the counter tooth paste or whitening strips or pens.
However, they are not so effective and/or stable. OTC bleach and whitening tooth paste could be used as a supplement only. A professional teeth whitening without laser, followed by home whitening system with custom trays for the long term effect.

In brief: Toothpaste

Toothpaste will not whiten teeth.
In most cases, it will not even remove stains. If you want whiter, brighter teeth, see your dentist for a professional cleaning, and use the whitening system recommended by his/her office.
