How To Whiten With Braces
If you have braces, whitening toothpaste may be your best solution. They remove surface stains without bleaching. Plus, they have enamel-strengthening fluoride. Whitening toothpaste does not change the colour of your teeth, so you won’t have any unpleasant surprises when it’s time for your braces to come off.
