Horrible do not use!!

On the first use my throat began to close up I thought I just had a viral infection until a week later it wasn’t going away so I googled reviews and came across so many others having the same issues of red bumps and closing throat. Wasn’t until now that I made the connection that it’s the toothpaste absolutely wild! Show details

Chance to mouth ulcer

This paste contains Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS ) it breaks down the protective lining of the mouth, leaving the underlying tissues irritated and prone to break out in ulcer sores. Show details

Have been using this for 10+ years

I'm worried this has been discontinued because I can't find it anywhere!
Have been using solely for well over 10 years and have never, ever experienced any of the sudden ulcers or ailments other reviewers claim to have experienced.
I have been using another brand for the interim past 6 weeks and my teeth are already so yellow.
I'm a little worried it has been discontinued, this is the only whitening toothpaste that is suitable for me to use with my sensitive teeth and gums.
I drink a lot of black coffee, and red wine regularly, and find my teeth are always nice and white when I use Colgate Advanced Whitening, people often comment on how white they are.

Can anyone from Colgate confirm if the product is still being made? Show details ·  2

Burned tongue and throat

Started using his a week ago and each day I have had more ulcers and sore throat. Y tongue looks cracked and painful..Didn’t think it was the toothpaste until my doctor looked at it and said it was burned Show details

Scary stuff!

I actually didn’t link my symptoms to toothpaste until after I went to my dentist. My mouth and throat felt like they were burning, my tongue especially. And so very dry - no amount of water could stop that. Then ulcers on my gums and inside cheeks. I was convincing myself that I had mouth cancer. The first question my dentist asked was ‘are you using bleach’? At first I said no - but then I remembered I’d bought this whitening toothpaste to try. My symptoms are improving daily since stopping. Show details

Bleached the colour from my bathroom basin

Started using this product a week ago. Have an inflamed lip with what appears to be an ulcer under the surface. Left an area unwashed for a little while in my heritage grey basin and it has bleached the colour! Will need to have it resurfaced - or smear the remainder over the basin and bleach it all. Not happy! Show details

Mouth ulcers whiter teeth

I bought this thinking it would be milder than Colgate's more potent Optic White. After a few days I have a bad ulcer inside the top of my mouth which feels like a cut. I have disposed the rest of the tube in the toilet expecting brilliant results. Show details

Not recommended. Something in ingredients causes very sore mouth & ulcers. Would not buy again

Yes, mouth ulcers formed within 2 days of switching to this product. Tongue & gums very sore. Mouth is on fire. Must contain something very irritating or toxic to the gums. Show details

Been using for over 15years

I love this product! Will use no other. People are always asking if I have had my teeth whitened... I have not. I only use Colgate Advanced Whitening. I swear to God! Show details

Ulcers and smelly breath

I had the same reaction with many other people regarding the ulcers. I didn't think anything of it at first as I only had one but after using the toothpaste for a couple of days, I developed another one and then my partner started complaining about cuts in the lip and ulcers.

I thought that maybe it was our diet and I even put it down to our trusty tooth brushes but thinking hard the only thing that had changed in our routine was the new toothpaste so I looked it up and was surprised/assured that there were others with the same reaction. I feel I understand why it was half price at the supermarket.

Overall I would not recommend.



Horrible I highly recommend you not to use this toothpaste! I brushed me teeth and now I have cuts all in my gums and in my lips,So painful and eating and drinking is a struggle! Horrible worst toothpaste I have ever used!


Ulcers, sensitive teeth and sore gums

bought this toothpaste as it was on offer in boots, so thought I might as well try it out. After the first day of using it I had an ulcer on my lip, which I originally put down to stress. However after the 3rd day of using this toothpaste I had approximately 7 ulcers in my mouth, on my lips and tongue. My gums have also become very painful and my teeth feel more sensitive than usual. I have not changed anything apart from my toothpaste. It hurts to talk and eating is a challenge. Since yesterday I have switched to sensodine and my mouth is already feeling better. I have seen quite a few complaints of a similar thing happening to other people when using this toothpaste and really think Colgate should take these into consideration.

Absolutely horrible

There are cuts inside of my mouth after using this toothpaste twice! I brush my teeth before bed and cannot sleep because of this weird sticky crap in my mouth left from the toothpaste. I used this toothpaste about a year ago, and a year later it is still the same. Weirdly, this toothpaste also gave me horrible smelling breath.

Major issues after using this toothpaste

I had a similar reaction to one of the reviewers here - major issues with sudden constricted breathing after using. Not asthmatic, but felt I could hardly breathe on numerous occasions after brushing teeth with this. Also got: major teeth sensitivity that lasted all day (painful aching teeth, hot and cold sensitive); tingly and numb tip of my tongue; dry lips; and two lymph/salivary glands under jaw either side of trachea both swollen and painful. No other symptoms that could explain this like a cold etc. Bad, bad toothpaste. Stay away.
