PRODUCT REVIEW: Crest 3D Whitening Toothpaste

But, when you’re pearly whites aren’t so pearly, it can feel like the only thing everyone is looking at is your mouth. And that’s off-putting, to say the least.

Turning to whitening products is the quick way to turn your smile from a dud to dynamic, but whitening strips can be expensive.

Enter Crest 3D Whitening Toothpaste.

My teeth are decidedly more luminescent three weeks after switching to this toothpaste. My biggest concern was taste. After all, how pleasant can whitening toothpaste taste?

I don’t know what makes Crest’s “Radiant Mint” flavor different from other mint-flavored toothpaste, but I find it pleasant.

One word of caution, though: If you are a fan of screw tops on your tube of toothpaste, this isn’t for you. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the click-top cap on the packaging; rather, it’s just that difficult to find something wrong with this product.

Crest 3D Whitening Toothpaste has me regretting not switching to a whitening toothpaste sooner, especially when it’s only $2.99.
