love this. Always come back to this. I use a professional grade electric toothbrush and I still look dentist office clean.
I love the Crest 3D white product line. I use it with my sonicare toothbrush and find that with constant use, your teeth whiten a few shades. They won't be glow in the dark, but there is a noticeable change in shades after about a week of constant use. I have used the other brands out there and by far the 3D white tastes the best and works the best
I fell in love with the mouthwash version of this and decided to try the toothpaste!
My teeth aren't too yellow, but stained enough for me to want to make a difference without killing my wallet. I usually use sensodyne whitening and I really felt like it didn't whiten and only helped my sensitive teeth. So 3 days into using this and I can say I have no problems!!
I can have sweets or warm things without any pain and my teeth actually look whiter than when I started! After the first day with this toothpaste and mouthwash combined I was so surprised at the difference, it's kind of surreal!
The smell/taste is definitely a little off putting, but I love how it comes with a pop-up lid so you don't have to fumble with the threads on the cap.
My teeth & mouth feel really clean afterwards and I think it does exactly what it claims, helps remove surface stains and leaves you feeling good afterwards.
Definitely try it with the non-alcohol version of mouth-wash! A killer combo! People have even been complimenting me on my teeth even though it's only been 3 days, if that's not convincing I don't know what is :)
The reviewer below me did an excellent job! I agree with everything she said, so I'm just going to tell you a couple other things I noticed while using this toothpaste.
As the previous reviewer said, the whitening is achieved by abrasive silica. I found that I couldn't even get remotely close to my gums with this toothpaste, or it scratched them (i have VERY sensitive gums). I found using a soft brush helped.
I also drink a lot of coffee and I noticed that if I don't use this religiously, the effects don't last. I did notice some whitening, but my teeth will look dull again if I don't keep using this.
Overall I really like this toothpaste, I just have to be a tad careful when using it!
This is a review for the Crest 3D Glamorous White toothpaste, different from the Vivid White toothpaste in that it claims to remove 90% of stains in 5 days (as opposed to 80% in 14 days). It also claims to noticeably brighten your teeth in just 1 day.
My teeth are not SUPER discolored, but since I drink coffee and tea regularly they are a little yellow and dull looking. I wasn't really expecting it to work, since I've used whitening toothpastes intermittently in the past without any noticeable effect. I didn't notice any change in the brightness of my teeth after the first day, so I figured it was another dud. I kept using it though, since I needed toothpaste. I've been brushing with it 1-2 times a day for about 3 minutes, for about a week. Last night I looked closer in the mirror in surprise, because...results! I'd guess my teeth are maybe 2 shades whiter.
It's worth keeping in mind that this toothpaste whitens via polishing stains from the surface of your teeth with abrasive silica, not by using bleaching chemicals, so if the color of your teeth are naturally more yellow-toned then this might not work as well for you.
It also won't really give you a blindingly white movie-star smile, since that level of whiteness can only be achieved with bleaching or veneers. What it does give (or at least gave me) is nicely natural looking white(r) teeth.
Overall my experience with this was nice--the packaging is good, it comes in a plastic tube which makes it easier to squeeze the toothpaste out (unlike metal tubes), and the cap is big and has a large lip which makes it easy to open. The taste is an unoffensive mint. It's slightly pricey if you buy it in stores (I bought mine from Duane Reade, and it was one of the more expensive toothpastes at $6 for 4.1 oz) but you can get it much more cheaply online from Amazon or Drugstore.com.
