Best Whitening Toothpaste For A Bright Smile
For the last year and a half, people’s smiles have been hidden by masks. But now that we’re starting to see each other’s faces again, we’re paying more attention to our pearly whites (or not-so-whites).
We’re starting to see friends and family again, plan vacations, and find reasons to smile. Our teeth are going to be center stage yet again, and feeling confident in that bright smile is important.
Luckily, there are ways to simplify the process so you wouldn't be wasting any time.
For an easy way to lift surface stains and whiten teeth without countless steps or an expensive kit, our whitening gel is the way to go. For whitening toothpaste, our Bite Toothpaste Bits are an easy swap for a brighter and more sustainable smile.
Bite Toothpaste Bits
Bite Toothpaste Bits are a unique and eco-conscious way to keep your teeth clean and healthy. They offer a more sustainable approach to brushing your teeth than toothpaste in plastic tubes while using clean ingredients to create a product that’s better for you and the planet. All Bite Toothpaste Bits flavors are naturally whitening.
The three flavors that Bite Toothpaste Bits come in are:
- Fresh Mint: The original and best-selling flavor, Fresh Mint is a classic that you can’t go wrong with. Fresh Mint Toothpaste Bits are naturally flavored with peppermint to freshen your breath and leave your mouth feeling clean.
- Mint Charcoal: Our Mint Charcoal Toothpaste Bits taste similar to our Fresh Mint Toothpaste Bits but have activated charcoal as an added ingredient. Activated charcoal is a mild abrasive that helps to lift discoloration off of the tooth. Charcoal is beginning to appear in many dental hygiene products because of its ability to help brighten the smile due to its abrasive effects.
- Berry Twist: Berry Twist Toothpaste Bits is a favorite of customers who want non-mint options, including kids! Like all Bite Toothpaste Bits, Berry Twist is flavored naturally and while also being naturally whitening. This is a great way for children to begin using Bite, especially if they don’t quite understand the importance of brushing their teeth. Children over the age of three find Bite Toothpaste Bits a fun alternative to brushing with toothpaste.
All of our Toothpaste Bits are fluoride-free, which is great for those who believe they get enough fluoride from their food and water intake, those with allergies to fluoride, and younger children.
Read more about our journey to create fluoride-free toothpaste tablets and why we don’t currently offer them here. Too much fluoride can cause dental fluorosis, the staining on your teeth, and instead of helping to whiten, just aid in the forming of streaking.
If you’re looking for a toothpaste that will have whitening powers without the need for harsh chemicals, Bite will come in clutch. Our products are naturally whitening thanks to their naturally whitening ingredients, such as Nano-Hydroxyapatite, Sodium Bicarbonate, and Calcium Carbonate.
Nano-Hydroxyapatite helps make teeth appear whiter and brighter. Overall, it supports the treatment of dental hypersensitivity and enamel remineralisation.
Sodium Bicarbonate (aka baking soda) is a salt that breaks down in the water. It’s added to our toothpaste because it can whiten teeth. It works as a mild abrasive to clean the tooth and helps to remove stains. It does not prevent staining but helps you obtain whiter teeth without unnecessary abrasiveness.
Calcium Carbonate is another mild abrasive that helps to whiten the teeth. This removes extrinsic stains but does not fix intrinsic discoloration, so if that is a part of your problem, you might want to discuss other options with your dentist.
Every Bite product can be recycled, reused, or composted, including the packaging that we ship our products in.
At Bite, we also make sure that your product does not hurt the environment, including in the shipping process. We have created packaging that is 100% recyclable and plastic-free. This means that you can whiten your teeth while knowing that you aren’t contributing to the plastic pollution problem!
Whitening toothpaste can often contain harsh ingredients that can do more damage than good. If you want to use a product that will not harm your teeth but will whiten them, then the best route to go is the natural route. Bite has three different flavors that all are naturally whitening so that everyone can find the right product!
You shouldn’t have to worry about what’s in your toothpaste. We are proud of our natural ingredients and our ability to be plastic-free. We want you to feel guilt-free about taking care of yourself — so smile now that your mask is off, and feel confident doing it!
