Whiten Your Teeth Without Damaging Them

We have some good news for those who do not have pearly whites! Yellow teeth have earned a bit of a bad reputation, but wait – there is another side to this story. The outer layer which is the enamel is bluish white in colour. The dentin which is below; is naturally yellow in colour. The yellow colour sometimes shows through the translucent enamel making the teeth appear in an off-white colour. So, if you think your teeth are not as white as a napkin, it doesn’t mean they are unhealthy. That could be just their natural state. Still, we all dream about having stain free teeth and gleaming, pretty smile. Right? Choosing oral care products with powerful ingredients will help in keeping your teeth without stains, give them a uniform appearance and also improve the appearance of your smile.

So, what are teeth stains?

The outer layer of the teeth contains several pores called tubules. These tubules can trap stain particles causing teeth stain or discoloration over a period of time. Often the lifestyle habits that we indulge in; like eating specific food, drinking beverages like coffee, or other habits like smoking might have an impact on the appearance of a person’s teeth. One can eliminate or prevent them by making certain lifestyle changes and by adapting a regular oral hygiene routine. Good oral hygiene along with the right choice of products goes a long way in keeping those pearly whites bright and healthy.

DOES FLOSSING HELP TO WHITEN TEETH?

Generally flossing can be done before or after brushing teeth, but flossing before brushing the teeth might be helpful in loosening the particles that can be removed by brushing the teeth later. Since it helps to get rid of the plaque and bacteria that lands in between the teeth, flossing helps to fight bad breath.  Regular flossing can help your teeth appear brighter, but does not help to completely remove stains.

In a nutshell, flossing may not help whiten your teeth but helps improve the appearance of the teeth by preventing plaque build-up which results in yellowing. Even whitening flossers don’t bleach the enamel of your teeth but keep them clean and bright.

TEETH WHITENING WITH PEROXIDES

Teeth whitening practices have been around for centuries by using bleaching agents.  The bleaching agents used in the process can cause tiny channels in the teeth to open up.  And this is what helps the bleach to penetrate the tooth and make it white. But this can also lead to sensitivity. Chlorine was a popular method of teeth whitening until peroxides emerged. While hydrogen peroxide used as a rinse or paste may help to whiten teeth, it also had side effects including damaging the teeth. Later a combination of hydrogen peroxide with carbamide peroxide was used. Though they have an undeniable effect on whitening teeth, they are also harsh and may cause burning, redness, swelling, and tooth sensitivity.

  1. SHMP (Sodium hexametaphosphate) SHMP is a clean, non-toxic phosphate. It prevents staining and eliminates remaining stains, due to its strong capacity for the adsorption of tooth minerals and desorption of pellicle proteins containing stains. (Source: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov).
  2. Covarine Blue is a pigment when deposited on the teeth’s surface causes a colour shift that induces an increase in the perception of tooth whiteness. (Source: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov). Stain removing toothpastes containing Covarine Blue can have an immediate effect on the teeth. This ingredient on the toothpaste adheres to the surface of the teeth and creates an optical illusion that makes the teeth appear less yellow.
  3. Nano Hydroxyapatite has a strong ability to bond with proteins, as well as with fragments of plaque and bacteria, when contained in toothpastes. This is due to the size of the Nano particles. It remineralizes teeth by refilling lost minerals like calcium and phosphate. It helps to repair teeth damaged by cavities while also preventing cavities by breaking down the cavities before it reaches the tooth enamel.
  4. Lactoferrin is a multifunctional protein that is originally found in mother’s milk, bovine milk, and other body fluids like saliva and tears. Rich in Antimicrobial properties, it supports your oral health by strengthening the defensive power of your saliva, fighting off harmful bacteria, and promoting the growth of good bacteria with its ability to absorb iron. Because of its natural properties, it is safe to use across age groups.
