Crest Extra White Plus Scope: Fresh Breath and Decent Cleaning
Crest is certainly a trusted name in dental care and it has been helping keep teeth clean and preventing cavities for many generations. Most any Crest product has at least a few good things to offer, but some are a little less satisfying than others and one good example is **Crest Extra White Plus Scope Mint Splash.** **Toothpaste Commentary:** Crest Extra White Plus Scope Mint Splash combines together the cavity- fighting abilities of Crest with the breath- freshening properties of Scope for a two- pronged attack on plaque and halitosis. This toothpaste has fluoride to fight cavities and special ingredients to fight tartar buildup as well as mouthwash for fresh breath. Anything that combines such respected brands as these would seem sure to be a hit and in many ways, this is a good toothpaste product. It does have a fresh, clean taste that isn't too minty and it does freshen breath as promised. It performs well at cleaning, too, scrubbing away plaque and stains. One area where I have a problem with Crest Extra White Plus Scope Mint Splash is with its whitening ability. It calls itself "extra white", but in reality there is no extra ability at all. Other whitening toothpastes at least make some small difference in the whitening category, but I can see no additional results when using this product. It is also priced a little high for what you get. **Bottom- Line Viewpoint:** Crest Extra White Plus Scope Mint Splash is an acceptable toothpaste that does succeed at freshening the breath. Its overall cleaning is decent, but the whitening claims are a tad exaggerated. It is certainly worth trying of you're a Scope fan, but there are easily better products than this- both from Scope and other places.
