Colgate has introduced a new revolutionary product to the Optic White line, and it's Colgate Optic White PLATINUM Express White Toothpaste. This breakthrough formula is Colgate's fastest whitening toothpaste to date giving users whiter teeth in three days just by brushing. The toothpaste contains two times more of the whitening ingredient, Hydrogen Peroxide. Having a radiant and polished look is quick and easy with Colgate Optic White PLATINUM Express White.
I'm not vain but teeth and eyes are the first thing I tend to notice about a person. I love the beauty of white teeth and a nice smile. I also know the confidence that comes about from a pretty smile. I've struggled with the look and health of my teeth for a long time. Because of what I've been through, I take extra care of what natural teeth I have left and I also make sure my children (tweens and teens) don't skimp on oral hygiene practices.
Shelby, my 20 year old daughter, always gets complimented on her good looks. I may be bias, but I agree she's a pretty girl. She has a beautiful smile, but her teeth are somewhat yellow. She was super excited to try out the Colgate Optic White PLATINUM Express White Toothpaste. With a fresh mint taste, this toothpaste deeply whitens below surface stains, for teeth that are brighter in a matter of days. There's also the added benefit that this toothpaste protects enamel and contains anti-cavity fluoride protection. Shelby likes how it makes her teeth feel sparkly clean and she's noticed a whiter smile. I've also used this toothpaste and have experienced the same results.
In addition to Colgate Optic White PLATINUM Express White Toothpaste, I've been cleaning my teeth with the Colgate® 360°® Optic White® Toothbrush. It is specially designed to whiten teeth by removing surface stains. Whitening cups hold toothpaste to help effectively remove surface stains for a naturally whiter smile, and polishing bristles help to whiten teeth by polishing away surface stains and cleaning hard-to-reach areas. In addition, a cheek and tongue cleaner comfortably removes odor-causing bacteria. I believe the toothbrush is a little more effective than a normal, everyday toothbrush because toothpaste sticks to it better and the bristles are designed to remove food particles from hard-to-reach areas. The bristles are soft and don't hurt the gums.
After some use, Shelby and I have noticed that our teeth are recognizably whiter. It's not so much that we'd be cast for a commercial but we have noticed that they are whiter than when we first started using the products. I'd say the toothpaste and toothbrush are worth buying if you want to see some improvement on the whiteness of your teeth without paying a large price for a professional whitening system.
