OBJECTIVE The aim of this systematic review was to assess the effect of a whitening dentifrice (WDF) relative to a regular dentifrice (RDF) on the reduction of natural extrinsic tooth surface discoloration (ETD). MATERIALS AND METHODS The MEDLINE-PubMed, Cochrane-CENTRAL and EBSCO-Dentistry and Oral Sciences databases were searched, up to April 2017. The inclusion criteria were as follows:(randomized)controlled clinical trials, healthy subjects ≥18 years of age, studies comparing WDF with RDF…

Efficacy and Adverse Effects of Whitening Dentifrices Compared With Other Products: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.
TLDR
WDs are more effective in reducing extrinsic stain and producing a whitening-like effect in teeth than RDs, although they also produce more adverse effects.
Plaque control and reduction of gingivitis: The evidence for dentifrices
TLDR
This meta‐review appraised the current state of evidence and found that toothbrushing with a standard fluoride dentifrice does not provide an added effect for the mechanical removal of dental plaque, and suggests that compared with astandard dentif Rice, those containing triclosan or stannous fluoride have benefits with respect to gingival health and control of dentist plaque.
Aragonite toothpaste for management of dental calculus: A double-blinded randomized controlled clinical trial.
TLDR
Animal-derived aragonite toothpaste (Dr. D-Tart) shows promising efficacy in removing calculus, preventing calculus formation, and for the improvement of gingival health.
Comparison of Whitening Dentifrices on the Effectiveness of In-office Tooth Bleaching: A Double-blind Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial.
TLDR
The use of a whitening dentifrice containing blue covarine during in-office bleaching reduced color changes after tooth bleaching, and brighter tooth colors were observed in the participants who brushed with whitens dentifrices compared to those who brushing with a regular dentif Rice.

Reduction of extrinsic tooth stain by a toothpaste containing 10% high cleaning silica, 0.5% sodium phytate and 0.5% sodium pyrophosphate: an 8-week randomised clinical trial
TLDR
This study demonstrates that 8-week use of a toothpaste containing 10% high cleaning silica, 0.5% sodium phytate and 0.
The effects of pediatric dentifrices with different types of fluoride on the color change of restorative materials
TLDR
Although the glass carbomers caused significant color change, the compomers seem to be more resistant to the color change when brushed with all types of dentifrices.
In vivo evaluation of whitening toothpaste efficiency and patient treatment satisfaction: a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
Whitening toothpastes can show perceptibly whitening effect after a short time of usage, but without a long-lasting impact.
Color stability of bulk-fill composites exposed to different beverages and the effect of whitening dentifrices
TLDR
Although whitening dentifrices cannot remove all discoloration of composites caused by common beverages, they can be used to reduce it and play a significant role in color changes.
Effectiveness and Adverse Effects of Over-the-Counter Whitening Products on Dental Tissues
TLDR
There is no sound evidence that any of the described OTC products promote a better bleaching effect than the products indicated for a professional, and their effectiveness in terms of bleaching is questioned.

Does dentifrice use help to remove plaque? A systematic review.
TLDR
The cumulative evidence for this systematic review demonstrates that there is moderate certainty that toothbrushing with a dentifrice does not provide an added effect for the mechanical removal of dental plaque.
Clinical efficacy of a new tooth whitening dentifrice.
TLDR
The objective of this double-blind clinical study was to investigate the tooth whitening efficacy of a variation in formula of a commercially available dentifrice (Colgate Total Toothpaste), which was the addition of high cleaning silica to the existing formulation.
Extrinsic stain removal efficacy of a dual-phase dentifrice.
TLDR
Evaluating the extrinsic stain removal benefit of a sodium hexametaphosphate containing dual-phase dentifrice (Crest Vivid White) relative to a marketed negative control (Colgate Cavity Protection) found it well tolerated over the 6-week treatment period.
Treatment of oral malodour. Medium-term efficacy of mechanical and/or chemical agents: a systematic review.
TLDR
The potential effect of a specifically formulated dentifrice, a mouthwash or a tongue scraper for treating oral malodour is unclear and the strength of a recommendation to use these products was graded to be 'weak'.
Clinical Effectiveness Evaluation of a New Whitening Dentifrice.
TLDR
This study showed that the new dentifrice formulation is safe and effective on stain removal and tooth whitening and that Truly Radiant toothpaste was significantly more effective than both the negative and positive control dentifrices for these parameters.
Development of methods to enhance extrinsic tooth discoloration for comparison of toothpastes. 2. Two-product clinical study.
TLDR
Using a forced dietary staining method, the data support a tooth stain-inhibitory/-removal action for the experimental formulation, but not the whitening product.
Efficacy of two dentifrices on removal of natural extrinsic stain.
TLDR
Evaluating the 6-week effect on natural extrinsic dental stain from the use of a dentifrice containing 10% aluminum oxide, 1500 ppm sodium monofluorophosphate in a precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) base or a second dentif rice containing 0.5% calcium peroxide, demonstrated statistically significant improvements, as compared to the fluoride placebo dentif Rice group without stain removal ingredients.
Effectiveness of a new dentifrice with baking soda and peroxide in removing extrinsic stain and whitening teeth.
TLDR
The results suggest that this dentifrice may have stain-prevention activity that persists following cessation of product use, and such activity would need to be confirmed with further studies.
