"Have you tried the Crest Whitening Strips," he asks. Yes, I answer, and they don't do a thing for me, I tell him.
But what's interesting here, I just caught a report by the well-respected and well-researched http://www.consumerreports.org/. And they claim, the best tooth whitening toothpaste is:
Ultra brite All In One Advanced Whitening.
Consumer Reports tested 41 toothpastes, toothpastes that all boast about whitening your teeth. And they found that most brands do not live up to the hype or expensive price tags. But only one was really superior at stain removal. And this one wasn't too abrasive, meaning, the toothpaste would not harm teeth and gums. And that is---Ultra brite. And what a bargain at just $2.19 a tube, 6 oz. But it's not available on all store shelves. You can get it at http://www.drugstore.com/ and drugstores like CVS.
Ultra brite doesn't even contain peroxide, and yet is able to whiten teeth beautifully. The winning toothpaste is also good at fighting cavities and tartar.
No, I haven't tried Ultra brite yet, but I am going to give it a shot and let you know how well it whitens. I read several reviews about the toothpaste, and a number of coffee drinkers gave Ultra brite, the big thumbs up!!
