Is it safe to use Colgate Optic white to be used with someone that has tooth sensitivity?
Do you get Geographic Tongue when you use this product??? Cause I am scared I will get it!!! :(
There is a strange sensation which is moderately uncomfortable after using the whitening pen. I think that the intensity of this feeling will differ with individuals depending on each person's discomfort threshold, so it is difficult to say how much it will affect you. My complaint is that despite the varying levels of discomfort that you may be prepared to put up with, it is essentially for no purpose at all, because it makes no difference to the colour of your teeth, absolutely no difference at all! Some people have claimed on the product review site that it has whitened their teeth, but my experience has been that it made no difference at all. I've thrown my pen and whitening toothpaste in the rubbish because I'm not prepared to put up with the unpleasant taste---which may be called Geographic Tongue, I've not heard this term before.
I purchased three tubes of Colgate Fluoride Toothpaste from our local Discount Chemist Alexandra Hills Queensland Australia 4 weeks ago with code 5044TH111N and 0217. The problem is that the toothpaste is extremely hard to push out of the tube, could you please tell me the reason for this?
Thanks for your question Gaye. Based on the description you have provided, it sounds as though you may have purchased parallel imported Colgate toothpastes which are imported to Australia by a third party and not by Colgate. These products are legitimate Colgate toothpastes but may be different in formula and consistency to the Colgate toothpaste varieties that you normally use. We'd be pleased to send some replacement toothpaste of your regular variety for you to use. Please contact our Consumer Information team on 1800 802 307 if you'd like us to arrange this for you.
It seems that Colgate have responded to your question, which is just as well because I did not know the answer. My article was about how totally ineffective Colgate's teeth whitening toothpaste and special pen have been, and wanted to warn others not to waste their money on these two products. I see that Colgate are offering you a replacement which is good.
What is the fluoride percentage in this toothpaste?
I have been using for past 12 months, 3 times per day and my teeth are much whiter, however after a dentist visit this morning I'm not sure how well it's working for my teeth (except for making them white!)
