Things I Love.

I love coffee, tea, and red wine (who doesn't?). Unfortunately, these things stain your teeth. In my case, my teeth get particularly stained in quite an unsightly way. Despite frequent brushing and flossing, I always seem to have black spots all over my teeth from staining (apparently this is a hereditary condition, as my husband and others who drink even more coffee than I do don't have this problem as severely).

I've been known to coupon a time or two, and one thing that I can get for free or close to free is Colgate toothpaste. If Wal-Mart has it on sale for $1.00, I often have coupons for -$0.75 or -$1.00 off. We often have four or five tubes of Colgate on hand for this reason.

The problem is that while I'm cavity-free, Colgate does nothing for the staining.

Enter Crest 3D White Vivid
We received a free sample of this new Crest product in the mail a few weeks ago. I'm not one for gimmicks, but it actually did wonders for the stains on my teeth. It worked so well that we actually forgoed our Colgate and forked over the nearly $4 a tube for this stuff. It worked that well. Perhaps we'll strike a compromise: Crest after coffee, Colgate before bed.

I have used this too but haven't seen really noticable results.

Lorrene, do you have noticeable staining on your teeth? Or are they just "faded"? This is gross, but it honestly looks like my teeth grow black mold when I drink coffee or red wine. This has really helped eliminate most of it, although my teeth don't look crazy white or anything (like whitestrips would claim to do).

Huh, maybe it only works on teeth that are super-duper stained...??

Mallory, I just came across this and thought you'd enjoy 3 tubes for .21! YIKES! Have a great day!
