The Best Whitening Toothpastes That Actually Work

5 whitening toothpastes that really do brighten your teeth

All right, so toothpaste is probably one of the least sexy topics of beauty conversations — maybe, like, two notches above foot powders and nail clippers, but a full mile away from blush and eyeliner — yet literally every single one of us wants to have whiter teeth (or at least wouldn’t mind having them if they were thrust upon us).

The annoying thing is, though, that not all whitening toothpastes actually work. Like, yes, they’ll make your teeth look a tiny bit brighter, but they won’t come even slightly close to what you see advertised on TV. But don’t think that you need to make a dentist’s appointment to get whiter teeth — just take a trip to the store and pick up a whitening toothpaste that seriously, truly works, like one of these five MVPs.

Keep reading to find your favorite, and get ready for a whiter smile in, well, a few days of consistent, twice-a-day use.
