    Braces and whitening toothpaste

    I've had my braces on for a year now, and I've been using a whitening toothpaste for a few months now. I can clearly see a difference. I told my friend this, and he said that I shouldn't be using that toothpaste.

    Is it okay for me to have braces and use a whitening toothpaste? Nobody told me it wasn't okay before. Thanks in advance.

    I'm by no means a dentist, but I would suspect that the whitening agent in the toothpaste may not come into contact with the surface of the teeth where the braces are glued on. So those areas wouldn't be as white.

    Just a thought
