Sensodyne True White Ingredients and How They Work

Woman using Sensodyne True White to whiten her sensitive teeth

Sensodyne True White is a specially formulated toothpaste—its ingredients simultaneously help to relieve the pain of tooth sensitivity* while gently whitening teeth by lifting away stains. Here’s a look at the science behind the Sensodyne True White formulation and how its ingredients work together to provide effective teeth whitening for people with sensitive teeth.

Potassium nitrate to protect against sensitivity

Sensodyne True White contains 5% potassium nitrate to provide relief and lasting protection from sensitive teeth.* It works by helping to calm the nerves inside your teeth when you brush, preventing triggers, like ice water or hot tea, from causing sensitivity pain.

Inactive ingredient sodium tripolyphosphate (STP) to lift stains

Formulated with 5% STP, Sensodyne True White helps whiten teeth by lifting surface stains and preventing new ones from forming. STP whitens more gently than the abrasives found in many whitening toothpastes.

Sodium fluoride for protection

Sensodyne True White, like all Sensodyne toothpastes, contains fluoride, which helps protect against cavities and tooth decay. Fluoride works by making your enamel, the outermost layer of your teeth, more resistant to decay-causing acid attacks.

Switch to Sensodyne True White as your daily toothpaste for sensitivity relief, whiter teeth and other oral care benefits.
