Best Teeth Whitening Toothpaste and Tips for Whiter Teeth at Home

Do you want to whiten your teeth and have a brighter smile? Are you looking for the best teeth whitening toothpaste you can find?

I think most of us would like to have white teeth, and a toothpaste we can use everyday that helps keeps them light and bright and healthy.

One of the things I’m lovin’ about life right now is that my teeth have lost their yellow glaze.

So if you’ve recently thought about the best ways to keep your teeth white, or wondered how to whiten your teeth, or asked what’s the best whitening toothpaste, or just wanted to know how to whiten your teeth at home, here’s what I’ve been finding out (and crash testing) and this article is just for you.

Teeth whitening home remedies

It’s a sad fact that our teeth take a hammering because of what we eat and drink.

But we use and abuse our teeth don’t we? Coffee, red wine, black tea, cigarettes, forgetting to brush them, neglecting to floss – they all play a part in staining or damaging our teeth.

There are a few things you can be aware of everyday …

  • If you eat or drink anything dark it could stain your teeth – so it’s wise to brush your teeth after drinking red wine, or coffee – and if you can’t brush them, then swill your mouth out with fresh water.
  • Buy an electric toothbrush and clean your teeth for a full two minutes twice a day. The circular movement of an electric toothbrush is better at getting rid of plaque.

  • If you’re using a normal toothbrush then choose one with a gentle brush (rather than an abrasive one) and don’t brush too hard or you can damage your gums.

  • Change your toothbrush, or toothbrush head if you’re using an electric one, about every 3 months.
  • Drink a cup of tea every day – aparrently flavonoids in tea stop bacteria from sticking to our teeth, and block a type of sugar which leads to cavities.
  • Have a dental check up every six months, along with a professional clean and polish. Not only for your tooth health but also your gum health because research suggests there is a link between gum disease and an increased risk of heart disease.
  • Sugar and bacteria lead to plaque so try not to eat sugary foods – or drink fizzy drinks which can dissolve tooth enamel.

Foods that help clean your teeth naturally

Apples are great at helping to clean your teeth. I’m told they are like nature’s toothbrush. I’ve been trying to have an apple a day.

So too are raw carrots, celery and unsweetened popcorn – and as these are low calorie snacks, I try to keep these to hand too.

Drink plenty of water in small amounts throughout the day. It helps to flush bacteria off your teeth and from your mouth. I’m getting into the habit of keeping a bottle of water by my computer.

How to make your teeth look whiter

Don’t wear pure white clothes or scarves close to your face.

Choose a medium coral or light red lipstick which help to make your teeth look whiter.

Don’t wear light coloured lipsticks as this will bring out the yellow more.

I like wearing pinky/lilac coloured lipsticks which I think help make my teeth look whiter.

The best teeth whitening toothpaste.

I’ve tried lots of toothpastes over the years and a friend introduced me to this one. I was sceptical at first, but having used it for some time now, I think this is the best teeth whitening toothpaste I’ve ever bought. It’s a great stain removing toothpaste, and for me it’s been the best way to brighten and whiten teeth at home.

These are some of the things I love about it …

  1. It doesn’t have the ‘nasties’ which some popular brand toothpastes do.
  2. No peroxides.
  3. No bleach.
  4. No harsh abrasives –  I use it twice a day.
  5. It lightens teeth while preventing cavities.
  6. It’s good for sensitive teeth (like mine)
  7. It has a vanilla/mint flavour which freshens breath.
  8. And it has 3 types of protective ingredients that protect your teeth from build up of plaque.

Below are the before and after results I’ve been getting after about two months using this tooth whitening toothpaste …

The technology

According to the company ‘blurb’ … 

  • This toothpaste has no peroxides. Peroxides bleach teeth, but can weaken tooth enamel and irritate soft mouth tissues. Peroxides should only be used in a professional setting.
  • It has no harsh abrasives— abrasive substances might remove stains, but they erode and scratch teeth.
  • A stain reduction test was performed by the company which makes this toothpaste to determine the percent increase in tooth brightness. The whitening effects were measured after brushing with toothpaste and resulted in a 63 percent increase in tooth brightness.
  • This teeth whitening toothpaste also has protective ingredients that protect your teeth from build up of plaque.

Can this teeth whitening toothpaste make my teeth whiter than they are naturally?

No. This Teeth whitening toothpaste is not an oxidising, bleaching agent. However, if your teeth are stained, darkened, or soiled from various foods, tobacco, or drinks, it will help whiten teeth by helping remove the stains to return your teeth to their light, natural colour.

    I can definitely see a difference Jo!

    • Johanna

      Thanks Janet. I wasn’t sure until I put the before and after photos side by side. But there really IS a difference, and there’s no photoshopping 🙂

  • Constance

    Interesting product, I’ve been interested in teeth whitening for awhile and am always looking for new options. Thank you for sharing!

    • Johanna

      Hi Constance, it really does make a difference to my teeth. I hope you try it. If you do, email me and I’ll tell you how I brush with it for optimum performance.

  • Kathy Marris

    Wow! I can really see the difference Jo. My teeth are off-white but I would love them to look whiter. I’m actually in the process of having new crowns placed on three front teeth. I recently had implants inserted into my gums (very painful!) and in 3 months time I will have new white crowns (hopefully). But I will need to whiten the rest of my teeth so I’ll definitely give this a go. #TeamLovinLife

    • Johanna

      Hi Kathy, thank you! Yes, I was sceptical at first, but I can see a difference in my teeth too. Ouch poor you. Implants sound painful, but the result should be good when the crowns are on. I hope it goes well for you. This toothpaste won’t whiten crowns, but I can vouch that it’s definitely whitened and brightened my normal teeth. And after brushing well, they shine 🙂

  • Denyse

    No ‘worries here’ for me Jo as I read the post. I was/am an excellent example of visiting the dentist every 6 months, having my teeth filled or whatever was needed at the time. It’s is a total mystery to both the dentist and surgeons as to why cancer decided to start in my gums. It’s one of those rare events for me – with no risk factors such as alcohol intake or smoking. I am just glad it all appears to have been taken and I can keep on with the surgeries for mouth reconstruction.

      Hi Denyse, oh I’m so glad this was a ‘no worries’ post for you, as I was worried x It’s unbelievable though that without having any risk factors cancer started in your gums – just not fair. It’s a fair warning though that we should all visit the dentist regularly. I’m sending strength and healing wishes during your mouth reconstruction surgeries.

  • Deborah

    I hate my teeth and feel like they’re really discoloured. I’d get them professionally whitened but know I need to stop drinking diet coke before I fork out that kind of money! #teamlovinlife

    • Johanna

      Maybe try this toothpaste first, before getting them professionally whitened Deb. I’m finding it helps reduce the yellow discolouration. Or if you have them professionally whitened then use this toothpaste afterwards to perhaps help prevent a new stain build up.

  • Jo Tracey

    I’ve never tried a teeth whitening toothpaste – and as a lover of red wine, it’s probably something I should think a tad more about. #Teamlovinlife

    • Johanna

      I think it’s a good thing to think about using Jo. I love coffee and red wine, and I use this toothpaste to help with prevention of staining.

  • jodie filogomo

    As a retired dentist, I hardly mess around with the toothpastes and expecting them to do anything—-just give me the good ole bleach, because it really works!!

    • Johanna

      Hi Jodie, interesting … from your professional knowledge I’d love to know though … isn’t bleach ultimately damaging to teeth enamel if you keep on using it?
