Like most people I’m sure, I do not have the whitest teeth in the world. Chock it up to laziness on my part. I drink coffee, sodas, and pretty much every other food or drink known to cause stains on the teeth. And I’ve tried whitening gels before. They are effective and inexpensive, but I can’t seem to figure them out. I always just end up drooling uncontrollably! So I figured I’d give this whitening toothpaste a try and see what results I might get out of it.
To start things off, The Crest 3D White Advanced Vivid Fluoride Toothpaste, besides having a VERY long name, is a great toothpaste. It was just the right amount of texture for me, not too thick, but not too slimy. Another good thing about the texture is that it foamed up pretty quickly, much better than some other toothpastes I’ve tried. Tasted good too; I’m not sure how “fresh mint” is different from just “mint” flavor, but I must say it was definitely tasty and somewhat soothing. As for the whitening my teeth, I must admit that it did whiten my teeth a bit. Although to be fair, I didn’t exactly make this a scientifically-accurate experiment. I didn’t take before and after pictures, or regulate my stain-causing food and drink. However I was still pleased by the result, and I’m very happy to recommend it.
