Disclosure – I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Colgate. I received a product sample for this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
Awhile back I told you guys about my problem with Bruxism that causes my teeth to be very sensitive. I grind my teeth while I’m sleeping, it’s worse when I’m under stress, and I worry about what I’m doing to the enamel on my teeth. I take measures to try and keep from grinding and creating further damage, like wearing a mouth guard while sleeping, and I was thrilled to learn about the new Colgate Enamel Health toothpaste. It comes in both Whitening and Sensitivity Relief and I was anxious to see if it would help with my tooth sensitivity.
I started using Colgate Enamel Health Sensitivity Relief just under two weeks ago and my first impression was that the toothpaste was smooth, felt great on my teeth like it was polishing them, and had a nice low-key mint flavor. When I first started using it I was hyper aware of my tooth sensitivity, it was even uncomfortable to breathe through my mouth while taking my daily walks in the cold air.
After using the toothpaste for a couple weeks I’m ecstatic to report that the new Colgate Enamel Health Sensitivity Relief has definitely decreased my tooth sensitivity. I went for two one mile walks in the cold air today and happily chatted the whole way with a co-worker without noticing any tooth sensitivity at all. I’ve also noticed that there is less sensitivity when drinking cold drinks and eating hot food.
When I told my mom about it she wanted to try the Colgate Enamel Health Whitening variety so I got her a tube when I got mine. She’s a little paranoid that her teeth are on the yellow side. She drinks a lot of tea and coffee as well as soft drinks and she worries too about how that affects her tooth enamel. She’s been using hers for a couple weeks now also and she reports that she’s very pleased as she has noticed some whitening. She believes that the whitening trend will continue as she keeps using the toothpaste so she’s planning to do just that!
