    Did a search, couldn't find anything.

    What is the best toothpaste for whitening and gentleness on the enamel?

    I think the Arm&Hammer stuff is best for whitening but it just feels harsh. Colgate and Aquafresh feel gentle on the old pearly whites but don't do much for the brightness.

    Is there a happy medium. Perhaps using Colgate for 5 days and Arm&Hammer for 2 per week?

    I don't think eating them does much good to be honest.

    fan: He might not be able to see his dentist for a while. I recently made an appointment, and it's not for another month. This is a reasonable question to ask on here.

    Arm & Hammer is fucking raw.

    Using that stuff and then flossing afterwards can bring tears to mine eyes.

    Actually, when I asked my dentist this and other questions about best toothbrush, etc, he just said, "Well, to be honest they're all pretty much the same".

    There you go.

    What are your teeth made of? I have never thought of any toothpaste as being "raw" or "harsh" including Arm and Hammer.

    The pink variant of A&H ('Advanced White' I think) is rather gritty, and it cuts the gums up something fierce. I dunno, maybe it's an allergic reaction.

    That's the one I'm using. It is harsh! Will not buy it again.

    I use one of the Colgate's... I can't remember the exact name, but it's the only one I find that deals with breath enough and has a hint of whitening. It's the one with the sparkly bits in it, at the risk of sounding ubercamp.

    Truth be told, none of them are great at whitening... any improvement is temporary at best. You need to cut down on food and drink with strong colourings to get vast improvements with any whitening techniques (coffee, currys, ribena, coke etc.)

    blanx toothpaste is pretty good for general use... and they have a stain removal one which you can use fairly regularly (i think for a couple of weeks at a time if you feel you need it?) that doesnt actually seem harsh on the teeth/gums at all in my experience and made a noticeable difference. both types are non-gritty and dont have any other 'bits' (for want of a better word) in them

    can be found at boots :)

    My hygienist told me the other day that the Tesco's cheapy whitening toothpaste (its about 50p or something stupid) is from the exact same supplier as the Colgate Whitening one.

    The extra 2 is for a nicer design on your tube of toothpaste. I think it's worth it.

    This. I tried ASDA cheap stuff, it tasted rank and you needed to rinse for half a year or you're be spitting out residue for the entire day. Aquafresh tastes alright and my teeth feel clean afterwords, that'll do for me.

    Psh, dentists + hygienists are just failed doctors, what does (s)he know. Wouldn't be surprised if your informed friend tells patients that the gums are part of the brain / plaque is fungal / electric toothbrushes are part of a Zionist conspiracy
