Advantages Teeth feel very clean and helps remove stains. Cheaper than trip to hygienist.
Disadvantages Over the top on packaging. Makes you very thirsty.
A six monthly check-up at my private dentist used to cost in the region of £45.00, which included X-raying and a thorough scale and polish of my teeth. I had no compunction in paying this, as I know how important it is to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy, plus the scale and polish really did make a vast improvement to my smile. Sadly, my dentist has now decided that a mere check-up (not inclusive of X-rays) is going to be charged at £35.00, and if I want a scale and polish I need to book a separate appointment with the hygienist at £29.00. Since when did dentists become too important to de-scale and polish teeth!? It's all becoming rather too expensive for my liking, so I had a bit of a search around for an alternative solution.**** THE SOLUTION? ****
The main active ingredient is Sodiumfluoride which helps prevent cavities by fighting bacterial growth. In addition, the cleaning element is provided by Perlite and Prophy-Silica, both of which are ideal for cleansing and polishing your tooth enamel and thereby whitening it.Combined, these ingredients not only thoroughly clean your teeth, they also have a go at any bacteria, tartar deposits and lingering plaque on your molars. The toothpaste also provides you with twelve hours of protection against the dreaded plaque coming back again.
**** WHERE CAN YOU GET SOME? ****
I bought mine in Boots at a cost of £3.49, but this product can now be readily found in most major supermarkets and chemists from £3.49 to £3.69. It does seem rather expensive in comparison to normal toothpaste, but as it is only designed to be used once a week, the cost is not that extortionate.
**** HOW DO YOU USE IT? ****
This toothpaste should only be used once a week, and in addition to the twice daily brushing with your usual toothpaste as recommended by dentists. Colgate is in no way suggesting that this product is a replacement for regular dental check-ups or hygienist work. It's a complimentary product designed to help your last professional scale and polish last that little bit longer.
