Weekly Health Tip: This dentist recommends a mouthwash for whiter teeth (from our current issue)

“Almost every patient I have seen wants whiter teeth, and some opt for in-office whitening and other use store-bought kits. A secret weapon that I tell them all about is the mouthwash with whitening properties by Listerine. It helps maintain the whitening treatment and also whitens teeth that haven’t been treated.”

—Dana Gelman-Keiles, D.M.D., board-certified dentist, Northern Westchester Dental Center, New York

    Even with all of the weird ingredients added to mouthwash? Doesn’t it have artificial flavorings and everything in it?

    Thanks, FatFighterTV.

    Judy, good question about sensitive teeth. I did a really quick scan of some reviews I found through a Google search, and there seem to be mixed experiences with sensitivity.
