Whitening Agents

Dr. Phillips:

My sister who lives near Syracuse drew my attention to your website and CWT system. Two questions:

1. What specific whitening agents are to be avoided in a basic toothpaste? I have Pepsodent Complete Care. The box says it “Whitens teeth” with proper brushing, but I wonder whether this may be advertising hype, as it lists only the following ingredients. Do you see anything disadvantageous?

Active Ingredients: Sodium Fluoride Inactive Ingredients: Sorbitol, Water, Hydrated Silica, PEG 32, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, SD Alcohol 38B, Flavor, Cellulose Gum, Zinc Citrate Trihydrate, Sodium Saccharin, Titanium Dioxide

2. On reading further links on your website I see that my choice of ACT Restoring wash (Sodium Fluoride 0.02%, alcohol 11%) was wrong. Have I wasted my investment, i.e., is it wisest to discard this product, or may I finish the first bottle and be more judicious next time?

Dear P.A.R.,

You will probably enjoy the book that I am hoping to publish early next year. The book will explain about the way teeth reflect light how they are like diamonds enamel has no color.
The color of teeth is the way that light reflects off the surface. When teeth are strong and hard, light bounces off the enamel surface and teeth appear bright and white.

Peroxide and scrubbing agents would be good to clean your sink or polish up stones. Tooth enamel is delicate and needs gentle care less abrasion it need to be bathed in liquids that build minerals into its honey-comb structure.

I wish you would try my complete mouth care system it will make you a believer. This system is not hype (I have nothing to gain by you purchasing these products I am not connected with any of the rinse or toothpaste companies).

I am sorry but I am not fond of Restore ACT. I know it is confusing with all the products. This is why I offer my complete kit for sale as an introduction to the system. Once you have tried the products you can match them at the grocery store and show them to family and friends.

I hope this is helpful to you.
Don’t think about the money as ‘wasted” Think instead about a new future with healthier teeth how much will that save you? 🙂
Good luck,
