Best Whitening Toothpastes for Sensitive Teeth
Published Aug 30, 2011
Everyone wants a bright smile, but some Beauties can't take harsh whitening formulas. If your teeth are extra sensitive, try these enamel-strengthening toothpastes specially designed for sensitive teeth.
If your sensitive teeth can't tolerate any peroxide-based formula, there's still hope! Tom's of Maine Simply White toothpaste uses purified and hydrated silica, a mild abrasive that gradually removes stains. This earth-friendly formulation uses only a handful of other ingredients—nothing harsh for your gentle teeth.
Crest 3D White's great tasting-formula strengthens enamel and polishes surface stains without the need for potentially painful whitening strips. When used daily, you should notice whiter, brighter teeth in two weeks.
Arm & Hammer is best known for serious household cleaning, but its Enamel Strengthening toothpaste uses nonabrasive baking soda and peroxide to gently lift stains. The baking soda helps with bad breath too, just as it neutralizes odors in your fridge! You can also add Arm & Hammer Whitening Booster to any fluoride-based toothpaste you already use. The peroxide in the formulation removes stains and whitens while extra calcium builds up weak enamel.
