Supersmile toothpaste Different from all the others

Why is Supersmile toothpaste the number one brand recommended by cosmetic dentists? Because, while ordinary toothpastes can scratch and dull beautiful cosmetic dental work, Supersmile won't. But, in spite of being so gentle, it is extremely effective at removing stains and protecting bleached teeth. In fact, there are some tooth stains that only Supersmile will remove. How does it do that?


Here's how it works: In your mouth, on the surface of your teeth, your body forms a protein layer over the enamel called the "pellicle." When plaque and stains attack your teeth, they don't attach to the enamel. Instead, they attach to this protein pellicle layer.


When you go to the dentist to get your teeth cleaned, first, the hygienist removes the calculus (tartar) with metal instruments. After that, the protein pellicle is removed with polishing pumice. The pumice removes the pellicle with abrasive action, leaving your mouth looking clean and having a refreshing, clean feeling.+


Supersmile allows you to remove the pellicle yourself on a daily basis. It does this by gently dissolving the pellicle. You might think that a toothpaste that cleans as thoroughly as that would be harsh. Not so—it is much more gentle than ordinary toothpastes. In fact, it is one of only two brands that we consider gentle enough to use on teeth with cosmetic tooth bonding. By removing the pellicle, you not only remove stains and plaque, you remove the attachment site for new plaque and stains. It takes the mouth several hours to re-form this pellicle layer. Meanwhile, your mouth has a refreshing, clean feeling.


Additionally, Supersmile has a mild whitening agent that helps maintain bleached teeth. I prescribed Supersmile to all my bleaching patients, both during and after treatments, to make sure that they achieved maximum whitening.

Supersmile®, when you order it from the manufacturer, costs $27.85, including shipping and handling. Through Amazon, it can cost you much less. Click the link at the right if you'd like to buy it at that discounted price.


Supersmile® also has baking soda to promote healthy gums, and fluoride to help fight cavities.

While I was in practice, I always recommended Supersmile® for our patients with bleached, bonded, or veneered teeth, because of its gentleness, thorough cleaning, and whitening action. We also recommended it for patients taking prescription antibacterial mouthrinses such as Peridex®, as it is the only toothpaste we know that prevents the staining that is otherwise an annoying side effect of those rinses. It is available from the manufacturer for $27.85, including shipping and handling, or from Amazon for a considerable savings. Or, it is available for purchase in the offices of many cosmetic dental practices.

Supersmile also has a complete whitening system, which includes the toothpaste and a whitening accelerator. Click here for more information about the complete Supersmile whitening system.

Good cosmetic dentistry requires special skills and extensive training beyond dental school.

There is a great difference between a good, reputable general dentist who thinks he or she can do cosmetic dentistry, and an artistically inclined cosmetic dentist. If the appearance of your smile is important to you, you need to understand this difference.
