Toothpaste and powders
For radiant and clean teeth and impeccable oral health, you need the right products. Even if you go a step further than just brushing and also whiten your teeth, it is important that you choose the best toothpastes and powders. Fortunately, OptiSmile has plenty on offer for you.
Toothpaste as a whitener for your teeth
Before you decide to take more drastic measures to whiten your teeth, it is a good idea to take a closer look at your choice of toothpaste. A good toothpaste maintains your tooth enamel and prevents outside influences from affecting the surface layer of your teeth too much. This means brushing at least twice a day. If you don't do this, you give bacteria a chance to penetrate the dentine and risk discolouration. The most important thing when selecting a toothpaste is to check whether it contains fluoride. This well-known ingredient in toothpaste strengthens tooth enamel and prevents cavities.
What should you look for when buying toothpaste?
As mentioned above, it is wise to make sure that the fluoride content in the toothpaste is high enough. For adults, 1000 to 1500 ppm (parts per million) of fluoride per tube is recommended. The fluoride content is always stated on the tube. You should also make sure that the toothpaste does not rub off too much. Toothpaste usually contains small hard particles. Thanks to gentle abrasion, the teeth are thoroughly cleaned. If the particles are too coarse, too large or too hard, the abrasion is too intense. This damages the tooth enamel.
What are good tooth whitening powders?
If you want to take it a step further in whitening your teeth, you can purchase tooth powders. OptiSmile's Organic Teeth Whitening Powder is an excellent choice. We have carefully selected this powder and can guarantee that it contains only the best, natural ingredients. It is made from black charcoal. This material is known for its whitening effect.
