What toothpaste should I use?
The most important ingredient to look for when choosing toothpaste is fluoride.
- Fluoride is nature's cavity fighter! It helps protect teeth from cavities.
- Fluoride helps rebuild enamel that has broken down.
- Finally, some degree of professional preference comes into play. We recommend for all patients, especially those with crowns and veneers, to use a toothpaste with no "grit." Over time, using a toothpaste with abrasive material wears the natural shine and luster off of your teeth and crowns. Almost like using sandpaper!
