This has got to be one of the BEST toothpastes in this price range. It has great cleaning power and provides 12 hour protection. It also tastes good. People are always complimenting me on my teeth and this is all I use. of course, there are expensive whitening toothpastes touted by the stars of Hollywood, but I have my doubts about how good they are for the health of your teeth and gums. Sometimes, less is more.

I have had a very different experience with this toothpaste than other reviewers. I picked this up on sale, having never used it before. Within 2 days of first using it, I developed a sore spot in my mouth, much like a canker sore, then more and more. It became so bad at one point that I could barely eat. I have never had any problems at all with my teeth or gums, but every time I used this I was experiencing bleeding gums. It took a minute to dawn on me that maybe I was having an adverse reaction to this toothpaste, I never would have imagined... but when I discontinued using it, all of the problems with ulcers and bleeding in my mouth resolved. I know that I may be the exception to the rule, but for those of you with sensitive mouths... I would recommend avoiding this toothpaste.
Comments about Colgate Total Whitening Anticavity Fluoride and Antigingivitis Toothpaste Gel, 7.8 oz:
This is my go-to toothpaste. By far it's my favorite with taste and texture (I prefer the gel over paste). It leaves your teeth and mouth feeling squeaky clean, and it subtly whitens over time. I like to try new and different products, but I always come back to this.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Children under 12 years: Instruct in good brushing and rinsing habits (to minimize swallowing). Children under 6 years: Do not use unless directed by a dentist or physician. Antiplaque and antigingivitis use not proven in children.
