Like many people, I have very sensitive teeth. My teeth can't handle anything too hot or too cold. It isn't a little uncomfortable...it's very painful and I do everything I can to make sure I don't have to experience that feeling.

Sensodyne used to be my "go to" toothpaste and it does help desensitize my teeth, but I decided to try **Crest Pro Health Toothpaste For Sensitive Teeth** because I had a coupon for it, and I'm very glad I did! This toothpaste does everything Sensodyne does, only it does more and it does it better!

I can tell a significant difference in the sensitivity of my teeth since I have been using **Crest Pro Health Toothpaste For Sensitive Teeth** for about a month. Ice cold water and ice cream don't send shooting pains through my nerves anymore, and I can bite into a hot slice of pizza without cringing! My teeth are still sensitive, but not as much as they were before I began using this product.

I also like the fresh minty taste of this toothpaste. Other toothpastes for sensitive teeth didn't always leave my mouth feeling as fresh and clean as I like but that isn't the case with **Crest Pro Health Toothpaste For Sensitive Teeth.** The flavor isn't too hot or too strong, it's 'just right' and it tastes great.

Other benefits of this toothpaste for sensitive teeth are explained wonderfully in Crest's product description, which is:

*"Cavities. Gingivitis. Plaque. Sensitivity. Tartar. Whitening. Freshens breath. Helps prevent gingivitis & helps reverse gingivitis in 4 weeks. Invigorating. Crest Pro-Health Clinical Gum Protection Invigorating gives you an invigorating sensation while it improves your gum health. It has been clinically proven to help reverse gingivitis in only 4 weeks. With regular brushing, Crest Pro-Health Clinical Gum Protection Invigorating provides these benefits: fights cavities; fights harmful plaque along the gum line; helps reverse gingivitis; builds increasing protection against painful sensitivity; fights tartar; whitens teeth by removing surface stains; fights bad breath. For complete oral care, brush twice a day, floss daily, and visit your dentist regularly. Products containing stannous fluoride may produce surface staining of the teeth. Adequate tooth brushing may prevent these stains which are not harmful or permanent and may be removed by your dentist. This Crest is specially formulated to help prevent staining. See your dentist regularly."*

What more could anyone ask for in a toothpaste? Especially in a toothpaste for sensitive teeth! Nothing, that's what! I can attest to the fact that everything in the above description is true, because I have experienced it all myself.

This product may be a bit more expensive than other toothpastes for sensitive teeth, but in my opinion, it's worth every cent!! If your teeth are as sensitive as mine, I think you'll be more than willing to pay a little extra to get the results this toothpaste provides.

**Crest Pro Health Toothpaste For Sensitive Teeth** is a 5 star product that I very highly recommend!

I kept experiencing a painful sensitivity in my right upper teeth.  I went to the dentist but he nor I could pinpoint which tooth was creating the pain.  He told me to try a toothpaste for sensitivity. 

I went to the pharmacy and there were many different toothpastes for decreasing sensitivity.  I chose the Crest Pro-Health toothpaste with Sensitive Shield due to the reputation of Crest products.

I brushed my teeth with the Crest Pro-Health Sensitive Shield toothpaste twice the first day and the aching did not subside as I expected.  I brushed twice again on the second day and still experienced the painful sensitivity.  Finally after brushing my teeth twice a day for four days, the painful sensitivity finally subsided.  I wish the dentist would have told me that toothpaste for sensitivity is not an instant fix, but may take several days for the sensitivity to subside.

Crest Pro-Health Sensitive Shield toothpaste does not only stop sensitivity.  It is also an anticavity and antigingivitis toothpaste.  It prevents plaque and tartar from forming, can whiten teeth, and freshens breath.

The active ingredient in Crest Pro-Health Sensitive Shield toothpaste is Stannous Fluoride 0.454%. 

Crest Pro-Health Sensitive Shield toothpaste has a flip top cap which is very messy.  I realized I could twist the cap off as a regular tube of toothpaste and this was much less messy.

I was troubled when I read the back of the tube which stated that products containing stannous fluoride may produce surface staining of the teeth and the staining may be removed by your dentist.  What?!  My pain is gone, but now I will have yellow teeth?!  I am really confused, for the front of the tube states that Crest Pro-Health Sensitive Shield is a whitening toothpaste.  I will have to do more research on this toothpaste before brushing with it regularly as well as place a call into Crest.

Thank you for reading my review.

Expensive toothpaste

By 

from USA

Comments about Crest Pro-Health Sensitive Shield Toothpaste:

The Crest Pro-Health Sensitive Shield Toothpaste has a weird taste to it. After I brushed my teeth with this toothpaste there seemed to be a film over my teeth that really tasted bad. I did not like this feeling on my teeth at all. I really expected better from Crest.

Better than other sensitivity toothpastes I've tried

By 

from Jacksonville, NC

Comments about Crest Pro-Health Sensitive Shield Toothpaste:

When it comes to sensitivity toothpaste, I've tried them all. And I actually liked all of the ones I have tried in the past too. [Sensodyne][1] worked great, but it was expensive and didn't work as well after I'd used it awhile. Colgate Sensitive was less expensive, but didn't work as well. But, now that I've tried *Crest Pro Health Toothpaste *for Sensitive Teeth, I've found a sensitivity toothpaste that has it all.

What makes *Crest Pro Health Toothpaste for Sensitive Teeth *best, is it does all the great things a regular toothpaste does, AND it helps shield teeth from sensitivity pain. If you have never felt the pain associated with sensitive teeth, let me tell you...it is crippling! Anything cold will cause such sudden intense pain, you simply cannot think of anything else. Cold air hurts when the wind blows, eating ice cream hurts, or taking a sip of cold water from a glass, can stop you in your tracks. And there's really nothing the dentist can do, except recommend a good sensitivity toothpaste.

The benefits of using *Crest Pro Health Toothpaste for Sensitive Teeth *include:


- Leaves mouth feeling clean

- Breath smells fresh

- Toothpaste tastes minty

- Has fluoride

- Whitens teeth

- Fights cavities, gingivitis, and tartar

- Controls plaque build-up

- More affordable than other sensitivity toothpastes

- Cool flip-top lid


The Crest Pro-Health collection includes different formulas of toothpaste and mouthwash, that have been inspired by dentists, and formulated to give you a healthier smile. Thus, even if you don't have sensitive teeth, per se, there is sure to be a Crest Pro-Health toothpaste formula that you can benefit from using. There is whitening toothpaste, flavored toothpaste, toothpaste for night-use only, gum protection toothpaste, and several other varieties.

Since discovering *Crest Pro-Health Sensitive*, I haven't used anything else. It doesn't just relieve my sensitivity pain right after I use the toothpaste, but it continues using it all day long. I use it every day, once in the morning and once before bed, and can feel a big difference in the way my teeth feel. I've been able to drink water without pain again! I'm a fan of this product and will continue using it.

**Bottom Line** - Yes, I highly recommend *Crest Pro-Health Toothpaste for Sensitive Teeth*. I've told my friends and family about it, and can't believe how it has literally changed my life. I don't have to avoid certain foods or beverages any longer, and am able to enjoy things I hadn't been able to before. You don't have to live with pain associated with sensitive teeth. The right toothpaste can help!

Dentist Clean without the dentist appointment

By 

from Virginia Beach, VA

Comments about Crest Pro-Health Sensitive Shield Toothpaste:

This is a great toothpaste to have. It cleans your teeth extremely well, without bitter taste or harsh, gritty material. After you brush, you will want to run your tongue across your teeth for that "dentist appointment clean feel" without having to go visit the dentist chair. In addition, Crest Pro Health helps with those sensitive spots we often can get on our teeth. Not cavities, but those thin areas that become sensitive to things like extreme cold. It helps by diminishing those "ouch" moments. Maybe it has a protective coating; I am not sure, I just know it works well.

It has a wonderful taste as well. I was pleasantly surprised. It is minty without being overpowering. It isn't bitter nor cementy tasting like some other sensitive toothpaste can be. I highly recommend everyone try this toothpaste, especially those with sensitive teeth. I believe that once you do, you will not change back to any other toothpaste.

Sooths Sensitive Teeth

By 

from Nicholasville, KY

Comments about Crest Pro-Health Sensitive Shield Toothpaste:

I have really sensitive teeth and have tried several different brands for sensitivity. I really like this one the best of all. It leaves my teeth feeling really clean. It is very fairly priced compared to some other brands. It is really effective with the sensitivity and the more you use it the better it will work for you. It leaves my entire mouth feeling clean, refreshed and healthy. Some of the other brands didn't seem to clean my teeth as well, I always felt like I had a film over my teeth when I was finished brushing. This is a toothpaste that you can use everyday and for me that is extremely important. I also like the convenient flip top lid, keeps messes to a minimum. Also, you can usually readily find it in any grocery, department or pharmacy. I would recommend this to anyone who has any sensitivity issues what-so-ever. Great toothpaste. It is also recommended by my dentist and that was important to me, too.

the only toothpaste I use

By 

from Overland Park, KS

Comments about Crest Pro-Health Sensitive Shield Toothpaste:

This is the best sensitive toothpaste on the market. Yes, I have tried at least 5 other brands and Crest is the only one that has helped me with my sensitivity. I have noticed a significant improvement in my ability to tolerate cold and heat. It has made a tremendous difference for me. Drinks are so much better with ice! I also like the whitening bonus to the sensitive toothpaste. I can't use the white strips because it the peroxide hurts my teeth, so I am glad to finally have a sensitive whitening toothpaste that I can use on a regular basis and does what it promises. I will only buy Crest, and as a coupon junkie that can be hard, but luckily Crest regularly puts out coupons and it is a brand that you can find on sale almost every week.

Pain Relieving toothpaste

By 

from Mount Pleasant, MI

Comments about Crest Pro-Health Sensitive Shield Toothpaste:

I am so very thankful for Crest Pro Health toothpast for sensitive teeth. I was finding myself only chewing on one side of my mouth when I was ingesting anything that was too cold and it worried me that I would be wearing down my teeth from favoring that side. My dentist suggested another product based on free samples, I didn't care for the flavor and the price tag was a major turn off. I did however realize that my dentist was correct that a sensitive paste was exactly what I needed. I tried a cheaper toothpaste and it too didn't taste very good. Which means you spend less time brushing so you can rinse your mouth. This toothpaste is the best, it tastes good and I no longer cringe when I accidentally bite into something cold!

Crest Pro Health Toothpaste for Sensitive Teeth is Good

By 

from Grand Blanc, MI

Comments about Crest Pro-Health Sensitive Shield Toothpaste:

Crest Pro Health Toothpaste for Sensitive Teeth is a good quality toothpaste.

Crest Pro Health Toothpaste for Sensitive Teeth can be found anywhere Crest toothpaste is sold. It is a little more expensive than other varieties of Crest for a smaller bottle.

I have been using this toothpaste twice a day for about 3 weeks now. I got a new filling in a molar and have been unable to chew on it for a couple months. My dentist recommended I use a sensitive toothpaste to fix the problem. I haven't noticed any difference in my tooth sensitivity yet, but perhaps it just takes a while.

The flavor of this toothpaste is very mellow and nice. The color is a bright blue, and the paste itself is a nice consistency. It gets my mouth and teeth feeling clean and fresh.

Does the Job at a Fair Price

By 

from Dayton, OR

Comments about Crest Pro-Health Sensitive Shield Toothpaste:

My husband and I have been using the Crest Pro-Health Sensitive Toothpaste for several months now. I have really felt a difference in the sensitivity of my teeth to both hot and cold. The price of this toothpaste is below the cost of other sensitive toothpaste brands. I like the flip top lid too. It leaves your mouth and breath feeling refreshed and clean. I was glad to see it come out in a larger size - the 7.8oz. We had been using the 6oz size. The only thing that bothers me a bit is that it is a little on the thin side when it comes out of the tube.

Crest Pro Health Toothpaste for sensitive teeth

By 

from Chico, CA

Comments about Crest Pro-Health Sensitive Shield Toothpaste:

Crest Pro-health toothpaste for sensitive teeth is a great product. Once you have tried this brand for sensitive teeth you are sold and no longer need to shop around for a sensitive teeth product that is right for you. I had tried all kinds and with crest being a name you can trust i found the care my teeth deserve. I use this product daily with warm water and have had the best results it has a little of all kinds of brands everything from fighting cavities, gingivitis,plague,tarter control, whitening and freshens breath what more can you want from a toothpaste and the best part is it taste great. So before you go and try another toothpaste for sensitive teeth and have to throw it out give Crest Pro-Health a try and save your self the frustrating job of trying another brand just to have the same frustrating results and waste of money get Crest Pro-Health and end your long search for the right toothpaste for your sensitive teeth, leave your teeth to the professionals who know sensitive teeth need Crest Pro-Health.
