Dentistry plays a significant role in creating the aesthetics of a person and thus influences the self-esteem of an individual. The admiration of a beautiful smile is globally universal. Everybody wants a bright white smile! According to a recent survey, 80% of Americans aged 18 to 49 wanted whiter teeth, with women more than men. 6 out 10 believe a whiter, brighter smile would boost their self confidence.
According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Americans spend an average of $1.4 billion on over-the-counter teeth whitening every year. One of the first things people notice when they meet someone new is their smile. But over time, even the shiniest teeth can become discolored. This problem can become exponential if not properly cared for.
Tooth Color depends on Intrinsic or Extrinsic factors:
Intrinsic factors are not in our control and cannot be changed. They often can depend on the person’s race, genetics, and any number of medical conditions or medications they might be taking.
Extrinsic factors are external stains that the person’s teeth have absorbed due to their diet and habits. These include the presence of tea and coffee stains; chlorhexidane stains, iron stains, carbonated drinks, food colors, smoking and chewing betel nut and poor oral hygiene maintenance.

NATURAL WHITENING TOOTH PASTE
Conventional whitening toothpaste contains abrasives and bleaching agents like silica, pyrophosphates, peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These chemicals remove extrinsic stains, thereby lightening tooth color. These ingredients cause undesirable harmful effects not only on the enamel but also on the soft tissues, resulting in mucosal irritation, ulceration and circum-oral dermatitis. For this reason many people started making the shift towards natural and chemical free products.
The whitening ingredients originating from herbal origin present in natural toothpastes is papaya, menthol, meswak, clove, salt and citrus fruit extracts. A natural tooth paste range like SprinJene Natural White Boost Toothpaste has the cleaning benefits of conventional tooth paste along with the being completely natural and chemical free as well as possessing the quality of whitening teeth.
