Teeth Whitening

Many people don’t realize their eating and drinking habits are impacting their teeth. Tooth discoloration can happen thanks to coffee, red wine, tomato sauce and certain medications. While it may seem impossible to maintain lovely white teeth, there are ways to successfully whiten the teeth.

Professional whitening is the best option but it is not in the budget for some people. However, there is whitening toothpaste that can be bought over the counter. It’s hard to know which products work best to remove superficial stains and which are a waste of money. “Business Insider” recently asked Dr. Neil Hadaegh, DDS, a Beverly Hills dentist, to rank the top 5 toothpastes for teeth whitening.

  1. Opalescence Whitening

Opalescence has a unique formulation for whitening as well as a lower abrasiveness than other teeth whitening products. Therefore, it is less likely to cause damage to the tooth’s enamel. Opalescence Whitening toothpaste costs approximately $10.99.

  1. Beverly Hills Teeth WhiteningCrest 3D White

Crest 3D White can remove up to 95% of surface stains. This toothpaste is considered one of the most popular whitening toothpastes since it can easily be found at most drugstores and local pharmacies. The cost of Crest 3D White is $10.79.
