Currently, SYLODENT® silicas are finding wide application around the world with some of the largest toothpaste manufacturers.

There are two types of tooth stains, known as intrinsic and extrinsic:
  • Intrinsic staining refers to the color in the underlying dentin, which may be discolored as a result of such causes as:
    • Hereditary effects
    • Exposure to antibiotics such as tetracycline
  • Extrinsic staining, on the other hand, refers, to staining of the exterior tooth surface resulting from exposure to things like coffee, tea, smoking, etc. This is the type of stain that can be effectively removed by a dentifrice, and particularly, a dentifrice that includes our SYLODENT® abrasives.

Toothpaste formulated with Grace silicas is highly effective at removing extrinsic tooth stains. PCR (Pellicle Cleaning Ratio by the Stookey Method) measurements show that our abrasives are the highest performance products available.
