March 18, 2022

When you smile, the whole world smiles with you … unless your teeth are dull, yellowed or stained (yikes!). If they are, it’s time to start treating those pearly (soon!) whites to a toothpaste that is specifically designed to help whiten teeth. These miracle workers can clean and protect your smile while removing any discolorations. In the end, you’ll have a brighter, whiter grin. Here are six of the best whitening toothpastes. —Jennifer Cox

Native’s Fluoride Toothpaste ($10) is made with naturally derived cleansers and simple ingredients. It creates a satisfying foam for effective cleansing, and it’s formulated with fluoride to help combat cavities. Plus, it has a delicious, fresh minty flavour. It’s also available in detoxifying charcoal or in a sensitive teeth formula.

The Simply Mint Whitening Toothpaste from Himalaya Botanique ($6) has a unique formula to combat bad breath, tooth stains, and plaque buildup. It contains enzymes from papaya and pineapple to help whiten your teeth and remove surface stains, and it helps fight plaque too, leaving your mouth feeling clean and refreshed. You’ll also love the cool, tingling mint flavour.

Snow’s Whitening Toothpaste ($34) may come with a slightly higher price tag but that’s because it provides lasting freshness and tackles stains long-term, leaving you with a super white smile. It was designed with sensitive teeth in mind and will never harm the enamel. The two flavours include Morning Frost (a minty fresh flavour that’s perfect for kickstarting your day) and Midnight Mist (a soothing lavender mint blend to help you wind down).

For a supernatural whitening toothpaste you can rely on Tom’s. Their Luminous White Toothpaste With Charcoal ($6, sold through Walmart) gently whitens teeth thanks to a natural whitening technology: charcoal! It removes surface stains, fights cavities, and is safe on enamel and for everyday use. It’s made with biodegradable or mineral derived ingredients and contains no artificial flavours, colours, or preservatives.

Attitude’s Toothpaste Whitening With Fluoride ($8) has a plant- and mineral-based formula that contains effective fluoride to protect teeth from getting cavities. It is also made with hydroxyapatite, an effective whitening agent that is natural and helps restore and mineralize enamel for stronger, healthier teeth.

New from Colgate, Elixir takes toothpaste to the next level. In three variants, Luminous White, Charcoal with Revitalizing Mint, and Fresh Boost, it offers something for every brusher. The Luminous White includes micropolishers that whiten teeth by removing surface stains, and the “dreamtube” technology lets each drop of toothpaste glide out like magic—no more messy, crinkly tubes or wasted product.
