Advantages: Soft on the teeth, whitens gently, non-abrasive, nice taste, feels good.
Disadvantages: none. Nope-not a single one.
I recently reviewed different toothpaste as I've been trying this new one for a while and wanted to give a good comparison. I'm not particularly brand-orientated but I do tend to find a good one and stick with it. As previously mentioned, I have very thin, sensitive teeth, which are loosing their enamel and therefore are very sensitive. My dentist thinks they can still be saved, so I do everything possible to help them. The problem is that most toothpaste's tend to be the same or are very expensive. I also find that any whiting paste is abrasive, which is the last thing I need with my teeth.
I would still like white teeth though and the fillings in the front teeth are very prone to discoloration so I am aware of that.
Browsing the bargains in my local co-op a few weeks back I found this toothpaste on offer for £2.00 a tube. Now that might not sound like a bargain to you, but this is high-quality toothpaste with a corresponding price. The actual product is called Oral-B Pro-Expert and on the box it also states in large lettering 'Sensitive + gentle Whitening. The box itself is blue with a light pink section across the front with the Sensitive writing and logo. There were three types on offer that day so this one stood out. But would it live up to its claims?
Along with the wording,' antibacterial and fluoride toothpaste ', it also says;

On the reverse side is a picture of teeth and where the toothpaste helps with a particular aspect of hygiene. I don't believe in listing every ingredient but this has a lot of ingredients, although alcohol isn't one of them. This has the usual warning about too much fluoride and gives the amount. This isn't just adult toothpaste either; children over six can use a pea-shape amount.
I started with enough paste to cover my teeth; I find this better than putting a dab on my electric toothbrush. I use it for a minute, which is what my dentist recommends for me. The paste tastes of mint, which is the flavour, I chose. This felt quite mild in taste, and wasn't runny as others I've tried that offer protection of enamel loss. I think the thinness might have something to do with that; some pastes can be very abrasive.
I have to very careful around some fillings as I have a temporary one awaiting a crown. I didn't have any problems with this; it glided over them with no effort.
After rinsing I felt the usual effects of food debris swilled out. Now I use a soft brush for the other minute and my teeth are tingling but not in a bad way. In fact they feel a bit like my hair after it's been rinsed squeaky-clean. Running my tongue over them also feels comfortable, but do I see a difference straight away?
Actually I do, unless it's just that I didn't feel so worried about the line between a filling and a tooth. So maybe I just made more of an effort.
Two weeks on I have found a huge difference. My teeth are much whiter and the small parts of fillings blend in well. I haven't had any weakening of enamel, in fact I feel much more confidant about brushing my teeth than ever before. I am still using my other brand as my own dentist recommended it, but I'm going to mention this new one on my next visit.
I've taken some of this from my diary. It's now four weeks since I first tried it and I'm honestly amazed at the results. My teeth feel stronger and they are definitely whiter. What's more, I feel more able to brush for longer and so I get a better effect than before. I have lost so many fillings over the last six months that I was getting afraid to go back to my dentist. It wasn't anything I was doing, I just kept finding I hadn't enough tooth left to hold a filling. My case is pretty extreme, given that I have some health problems that do affect both my teeth and bones in general. Half my front teeth have fillings, so you can see what a relief this is to me.
I'm very optimistic about this; in fact I think I might just have found the perfect toothpaste. This toothpaste took 15 years to develop so I expect to see more reviews about this before long. If my dentist allows then I'll be using this from now on.
Strongly recommended for anyone with problem teeth, this is one in a range of toothpaste for various purposes. I paid £2.0, this is retailing at £3.86.
