crest enamel shield

Recently Crest came out with a new line of toothbrushes, toothpaste and mouthwash. The line is Enamel Shield and the whole idea is that a lot of things we eat that contain acid and that acid wears away the enamel on our teeth, which can in turn lead to a whole world of tooth problems (ie., irreversible enamel loss, which can lead to larger issues such as cavities, sensitivity, veneers, dentures and even oral surgery).

The toothpaste in the Enamel Shield line
(Crest Pro-Health Enamel Shield toothpaste) contains something called Stannous Fluoride, which binds to enamel to create a micro-thin shield against acid attack. It also contains finer ActivClean Crystals™ for a smoother brushing experience and Dual Silica Technology for gentle cleaning. Crest Pro-Health Enamel Shield toothpaste is available in Fresh Mint flavor and ranges from around $1.00 to $4.25, depending on which size you purchase.

Crest Pro-Health Enamel Shield rinse is available in Fresh Clean Mint Flavor ($4.59). Crest Pro-Health Enamel Shield rinse, a complement to the toothpaste, helps strengthen enamel to protect against acid attack caused by plaque bacteria. It contains Sodium Fluoride, which helps prevent cavities without the burn of alcohol.

The Oral-B® CrossAction® PRO-HEALTH Manual toothbrush is available for around $4.50, as well. The toothbrush combines CrissCross bristles, gum stimulators and a textured tongue and cheek cleaner to make one great toothbrush.

So what did I think of the line?

Well...I didn't particularly enjoy the toothpaste. Although I have to say my mouth and teeth felt insanely clean afterwards. My downfall with the toothpaste was the taste/texture. There are actually very few toothpaste flavors I can handle and also when I was testing this I was in the middle of some very bad morning sickness so who knows if it really is the toothpaste's fault. My husband loves it. He also tried the the mouthwash, but I did not try it since of what happened with the toothpaste. The one thing I am loving from the line is the toothbrush. I normally use an electric toothbrush, but hate to travel with it, but I equally hate traveling without it. Manual toothbrushes never seem to achieve the same level of clean that I am now use too. This toothbrush does. My teeth feel clean almost as long as if I had used my electric one.
