Smile! Oral-B Pro-Expert Toothpaste

What's my number one beauty tip? Smile!
A beautiful smile is the best accessory to any look, so it's important to keep it in good condition. I must confess I have always been a little bit obsessed with teeth. At a time when everyone at school was wearing braces I felt more than a little left out when I was denied any help as I was told I didn't 'need' them. This is was of course very silly given all the pain associated with dental work, but I was desperate for that perfect Hollywood smile!
I have always been very diligent when it comes to dental hygiene and I'm sure those around me would testify that I am a complete nag about it too. Now this is not to say that I floss twice a day or visit the hygienist every 3 months as recommended, but I do make an effort.
I use an Oral-B electric toothbrush every day so I was excited to try out the new Pro-Expert toothpaste from Oral-B. My normal toothpaste of choice is Sensodyne (whitening) as I have incredibly sensitive teeth. So much so that after using one crest white strip I was in so much pain that even breathing hurt my teeth, let alone eating or drinking. I was in absolute agony for days! Subsequently, I have stayed far away from any professional teeth whitening (despite being tempted by the frequent Groupon offers). I was therefore a little apprehensive about switching toothpastes for fear of my sensitivity returning.

Oral-B Pro-Expert toothpaste is the result of 15 years of research and development and it is the first and only toothpaste on the market to combine stannous fluoride with the polyphosphate system. This toothpaste promises to target all the areas your dentists check the most, namely:
  • Gum Problems - stannous fluoride slows down growth of bacteria.
  • Cavities - sf helps to reduce damaging acid and builds up minerals while protecting the enamel.
  • Plaque - sf slows down growth of bacteria, thus plaque growth.
  • Sensitivity -sf blocks dentinal tubules to help prevent sensitivity.
  • Enamel - sf forms a barrier against damaging acids and helps to prevent erosion.
  • Tartar - the polyphosphate system forms a protective barrier that prevents tartar.
  • Whitening - the polyphosphate system prevents stains by protecting the surface of the teeth and in combination with silica removes discolouration.
  • Breath - sf interacts with bacteria associated with bad breath (500-600 types.. yuck!) and prevents them from multiplying.
That's all well and good, but it does it work I hear you ask. Yes! The texture of the toothpaste is quite a thick gel with little beads that dissolve on brushing. It doesn't foam too much, but just enough so a little goes a long way. This toothpaste works really well to keep teeth white, bright and healthy while controlling sensitivity. After finishing my first tube I will definitely be repurchasing - it works great, has been approved by the bf, and recommended by my dentist on my last visit too!

Do you take pride in your smile? Have you tried the new Oral-B Pro-Expert toothpaste? What is your current toothpaste of choice?


  1. im using sensodyne iso-active right now and it is also very good at whitening


  2. The dentist gave me a few tubes of this toothpaste at my visit last week. I love it! I know it is strange to get so emotional about toothpaste but hey, this one is pretty awesome.

  3. I agree with you a smile is the best accessory to any look and Oral B has a great line of products, but I haven't tried this one. Thanx for posting:)

  4. I'm currently using toothpaste. I used to used sensoydne and was pretty happy with it but mum brought this new one! At first I wasn't tooooo impressed but I've become to love it after using it more often. It's actually pretty good! :)

  5. I use sensodyne toothpaste the one for enamel build up. It's quite good but a little pricey, I would try this, I will look out for it in the shops! You look lovely xx

  6. I've got loads of free samples of this toothpaste! I didn't really like the taste but I have to say my teeth feel a lot cleaner and look whiter!

  7. Well, that bright smile is a tube away! With the technology and toothpastes that are available in the market today, a celebrity-like smile will always be within your reach. Just don't have too much of drinks than can stain your teeth including coffee.

  8. Thanks for sharing the idea there would be some apprehensions from segment but i am up for it.
