You can take the benefits of the electric toothbrush and pair it with a whitening toothpaste. So, even with an electric toothbrush and a whitening toothpaste your teeth will only ever whiten teeth to their natural colour by removing bacteria, tannins and particles that stain the teeth.
So, can using an electric toothbrush make your teeth sensitive?
Some factors which can contribute to tooth sensitivity include: Overzealous brushing: You can have too much of a good thing. Brushing your teeth with too much force, or with a hard-bristle toothbrush, may wear down tooth enamel, expose the cementum or dentin and cause tooth sensitivity.
Can over brushing damage teeth?
Although this is not always a bad thing, when you start brushing too much or for too long, you can ultimately damage your teeth. Brushing more than three times a day, and for longer than 2 minutes, can sometimes lead to your tooth enamel wearing down as well as cause damage to your gums.
Do you need to use toothpaste with an electric toothbrush?
To use a rechargeable electric toothbrush, just place toothpaste on the brush head and hold the brush at a 45-degree angle, just as you would a manual toothbrush. Then turn on the rechargeable electric and move the brush from tooth to tooth.
