Through complete coincidence I received two different teeth whitening products for review. I rarely test out different types of dental products since I feel so strongly about using Sensodyne as my toothpaste and Crest ProHealth for my mouthwash. It was nice to try something new.
The first products I received were from Smiley360.
Through this review program I received the Arm and Hammer Truly Radiant toothpaste, mouthwash and Spinbrush toothbrush. I wasn't a huge fan of the taste of Arm&Hammer. The premise of it is that it has the same power as baking soda did when people used baking soda to clean their teeth. I thought that the toothpaste actually tasted like baking soda and the mouthwash was pretty awful tasting as well. While I wasn't a huge fan of the products- I did like the manual Spinbrush a lot. There was nothing too exciting about it, but I thought it did a great job of making my teeth feel clean no matter what toothpaste I used it with.
I don't feel the need to purchase any of these products in the future just because they weren't my cup of tea. The taste alone is enough to deter me in the future.
My next package in the mail came from BuzzAgent.
BuzzAgent sent me a two step system by Crest used for teeth whitening. Step one of Crest HD is like a typical toothpaste- it cleans your teeth and foams up quite nicely. Step 2 is what they call the "perfecting gel" and tastes a little like the Crest White Strips. I found that the taste of the Crest products was a million times better then the taste of the Arm&Hammer products. I also felt that the perfecting gel did wonders for my teeth whitening. I saw a definite improvement from the day I started until the day I stopped using it.
Since trying both of these product lines I have gone back to my Sensodyne toothpaste and Crest Pro Health mouthwash. I will definitely be using the Crest HD two step in the future, but will not be using the Arm&Hammer products again.
Have you tried either of these product lines? What do you use to whiten your teeth?
