Noticeably Whitens Teeth & Removes Surface Stains in One Week!

If you would like to remove stubborn surface stains and whiten your teeth without the hassle of whitening strips or expensive dental treatments, give Colgate Optic White Toothpaste a try. Your teeth will be noticeably whiter and brighter in about a week if you brush twice daily with this product. I know this to be the case because that is exactly what happened for me when I bought this toothpaste and used it as directed.

It has a "sparkling mint" flavor that leaves your mouth feeling fresh and clean but it isn't 'hot' and doesn't burn your mouth at all. I like the fresh minty flavor a lot.

Colgate Optic White Toothpaste also provides fluoride to protect your teeth from tooth decay.

In my opinion, Colgate Optic White Toothpaste works as well if not better than most whitening strips and it is much easier to use and it's less expensive to buy.

I purchased Colgate Optic White as part of a toothbrush/toothpaste package. I didn't have any expectations of this toothpaste whitening my teeth, but I figured it couldn't hurt to give it a try. I was wrong. I used Colgate Optic twice a day along with flossing and everything appeared to be normal for the first couple weeks. I didn't see any change in the shade of my teeth, but I did get a canker sore that took a week to go away. This wasn't a big deal, but one day I was rubbing my tongue over my first molar and a piece of my tooth just broke off. I found this extremely odd because I had just went to the dentist a couple of weeks prior to using this toothpaste and my teeth were in excellent condition. I thought nothing of it at the time and figured I had cracked it on something I ate and didn't realize it. I continued to use this toothpaste until the crown on my opposite molar started to loosen up. I immediately stopped using this toothpaste and switched to a fluoride free toothpaste. I haven't had a single problem with my teeth since. I can't say that Optic White caused my teeth issues, but they started when I used this product.

I tried it and never went back to any other toothpaste.

By

Comments about Colgate Optic White Toothpaste - Sparkling Mint:

I love this toothpaste, but the reason I gave it an 8 instead of a full 10: It says "Optic White" in the name, which leads people to believe that it has the capability of making their teeth much whiter. It doesn't do that good of a job where the whitening is concerned; at least it didn't for me. Sure, I noticed that my teeth may have lightened up a shade or two over a long period of time, but to me, that doesn't live up to an "Optic White" name. But I still love this toothpaste and now I don't buy any other kind, and that's because of how it makes my mouth feel. The very first time I used it, my mouth and teeth felt cleaner and fresher than any other toothpaste I had ever tried in my life. It had a decent taste, but having my mouth feel and taste so clean, that was all it took for me to love this toothpaste and never look back. I've tried all the different flavors they have come out with, and the one I really like the most is the Luminous Mint.

Good job at a good price

Comments about Colgate Optic White Toothpaste - Sparkling Mint:

I am very pleased with the results that I have obtained from brushing my teeth with Colgate Optic White Toothpaste. First, I bought a travel size tube of this to see if it was worth buying. I'm on a tight budget! After about a week of brushing with it I noticed that my teeth were looking not only whiter but also brighter -- just better overall. I have been brushing with Colgate Optic White for about three months now and am still impressed with this toothpaste! My teeth look several shades whiter now from using this toothpaste on a daily basis. I am pleased with the fact that it makes my teeth a natural shade of white. It is also very important to me that this toothpaste is budget-friendly. My only complaint is the flavor. I am not too fond of the Sparkling Mint taste (I do not think that it tastes like mint) but the results are worth the drab taste. I recommended this to my mother and she likes it as well.

Colgate Optic White

By 

from Stafford, Virginia

Comments about Colgate Optic White Toothpaste - Sparkling Mint:

This is by far one of the best whitening toothpastes available. I highly recommend using it if you are looking for products to help whiten teeth. Other whitening toothpastes just don't compare. The only downside to this product is sensitive teeth. I used it for awhile before I noticed sensitivity. I recommend keeping another type of toothpaste on hand for when your teeth get sensitive. The sensitivity is fairly easy to stop.

You may not notice a drastic change in the color and whiteness of your teeth after a couple of uses. It's more of a slow and steady change with this toothpaste. However, after only a couple of weeks and uses I already noticed a difference and so did people around me. I am happy and proud that I bought this toothpaste and will be buying again soon.

The price is also decent to be a whitening toothpaste. You can even find coupons and deals for this toothpaste available in different stores.

This one works for me

By

Comments about Colgate Optic White Toothpaste - Sparkling Mint:

I have tried several different whitening toothpastes, but I did not really notice much difference in the whiteness of my teeth until I tried Colgate Optic White Toothpaste. Colgate had never been my regular brand of toothpaste, but based on the advertising I had seen and the product information on the box, I thought this whitening toothpaste was worth a try. I used only Colgate Optic White Toothpaste at least twice a day, and I actually noticed a difference in the whiteness of my teeth in less than a week. I have had people comment on how white my teeth look, and one person even asked if I bleached my teeth. I also find the taste of the sparkling mint to be a clean and pleasant flavor, but that is not what is really important to me. What is important to me is the fact that I have tried many whitening toothpaste brands, including the more expensive ones, and it is Colgate Optic White Toothpaste that works for me.

It's Ok, I guess

By

Comments about Colgate Optic White Toothpaste - Sparkling Mint:

It's good, but I feel like it's lacking something. I've tried other whitening toothpastes in the past, and this one doesn't seem to whiten as much. In fact, my teeth look a little more yellow while using this toothpaste. Taste-wise, it doesn't have an intense burning sensation like most toothpastes, though. I prefer the feel of this one over most. I also like how it's not a gel, as those tend to be uncomfortable to use. I also like how it tackles morning breath, but lately, it hasn't been doing a good job of that. The foaming sensation is a little disappointing, though. It "lathers" really well, and when I spit, my mouth doesn't feel as clean as when I use Crest. Who knows? Maybe I just got a bad batch, but this toothpaste isn't doing it for me. I feel the first day I used it was when it was the most efficient, but then the effects tend to wear off after a couple weeks. I resort to using mouthwash after I brush, since I feel like it leaves stuff behind.

Whitens so well, I threw out my strips! And no sensitivity!

By 

from USA

Comments about Colgate Optic White Toothpaste - Sparkling Mint:

I have tried nearly every whitening strip, rinse, and toothpaste on the market. As a big fan of coffee, tea, and wine, I am constantly fighting off stains. I had to write a review for this product because it is the #1 BEST whitening toothpaste I have ever used. It removed stains after about a week of use, and since then it has kept my teeth white and shiny. Here's the kicker - it works so well, I threw away my whitening strips! Literally saw no need for them anymore, as I get the same results from using this paste once (occasionally twice) a day. If I had to pick one con, it would be the taste. Lot of unappealing baking soda flavor to it, but minty enough to make up for it, and the results are 100% worth it. And ladies and gentlemen, here is the single biggest pro of this product: NO TEETH SENSITIVITY!! Most strips, pastes, and even rinses turn your teeth into throbbing, sensitive wrecks, and make drinking/eating anything hot or cold unpleasant. Not so with Optic White. I have used an entire tube of this now (several months) and not once have my teeth been painful or sensitive. NOT ONCE. When it comes to whitening and value for your money, this is a hands-down winner. I am absolutely thrilled that I don't need to fork over huge amounts of money on strips anymore! Gotta be my favorite product of the past year.

Favorite Toothpaste

By 

from USA

Comments about Colgate Optic White Toothpaste - Sparkling Mint:

Colgate Optic White Toothpaste is not only my favorite whitening toothpaste, but also my favorite toothpaste in general. It is effective, it is affordable, and the bottle is even nice and shiny.

Okay, but seriously. I used it twice a day and by the second week I had noticed a surprisingly big difference in the whiteness of my teeth. The surface stains from way too much coffee had not disappeared, but they were certainly much lighter. Enough so that I simply continued using this toothpaste instead of buying whitening strips. It saved me money, and my teeth did not suffer the side effects produced by the white strips.

Colgate Optic White toothpaste did not cause tooth sensitivity, which is quite a problem for me. In fact, before this toothpaste I was using Sensodyne toothpaste, and after switching I did not even notice a difference.

All in all, an effective whitening toothpaste, safe for sensitive teeth, and affordable (plus, there are often coupons out to make it cheaper! Keep your eye out).

It's an okay toothpaste

By 

from USA

Comments about Colgate Optic White Toothpaste - Sparkling Mint:

I purchased a two pack of Colgate Optic White Toothpaste - Sparkling Mint and ended up throwing both tubes away about half way through the tube. The toothpaste was okay, its an average toothpaste.The reason that I threw the toothpastes away is because it started to separate.

Aside from the product separation, I was disappointed with the whitening effects produced by Colgate Optic White Toothpaste especially because Colgate is trying to differentiate this product from the rest of its toothpaste line. The whitening results were no better than those of Colgate's less expensive whitening toothpastes.

I thought it was a fluke when the first tube started to separate, but when it happened with the second tube also, I have decided not to but the brand again. This is a mediocre toothpaste that you can't use the whole tube, so it is a waste of money. Try one of Colgate's other toothpastes.

My Teeth Looked Polished After One Use

By 

from Wilmington, NC

Comments about Colgate Optic White Toothpaste - Sparkling Mint:

I have been using Rembrandt whitening toothpaste for many years and on occasion, I have tried other products, just for a comparison. I noticed that one of my friends, who smokes and drinks coffee, had much whiter teeth and I asked her "why?" She told me about Colgate Optic White and I purchased it immediately. You can feel the tingling of the toothpaste in your mouth the first time you brush your teeth. I have switched from another leading brand to Colgate Optic White, because of the results. It costs less than my prior brand and I think it is a superior product. One of the cons of the Optic White is that it does not leave a strong minty taste and your mouth feels more like you have rinsed with peroxide. Realizing this, the product does what most people are looking for...it whitens your teeth without having to do anything that you would not normally do, just brush your teeth!
