If you have kids, try to buy different toothpaste, one for you and one for the little one, preferably the flavored ones to ease the implementation of teeth brushing on children. As for the people who want to restore the whiteness of the teeth, they should search for a toothpaste that contains baking soda and hydrogen peroxide.
