Press Samples & Purchased by Me (Affiliate Links) (*Denotes Press Samples)

As a person with sensitive teeth, who also drinks coffee and tea, will tell you-- it is no small feat finding  a teeth-whitening system, toothbrushes and toothpastes that are both gentle and extremely effective. If you seek pearly whites, then here are a few of my favorite products to consider. While the following products are kind to sensitive teeth you don't have to have them in order to reap the many benefits from these products.

*Whitening Lightning Zero White Teeth Whitening System: Using this teeth-whitening system has been a real gamer changer compared to the typical whitening strips that I have used in the past. It's an easy-to-use set that leaves teeth whitened and brightened without any sensitivity. The sweet mint flavor is quite pleasant, and never cloying. The Zero White Whitening Pen is an ingenious addition to this set, and the size is discrete enough to toss it into your handbag. The results are good enough that you might think that you received a very costly whitening treatment (not covered by insurance) from your dentist.

According to Whitening Lightning,

Our ZERO White contains no harmful peroxide and is ideal for pregnant mothers, all-natural aficionados and anyone looking for a gentle yet effective treatment.

The gels sweet mint flavor is a fresh and appealing making the overall experience more enjoyable.

*Violife Slim Sonic Toothbrush: Not only is this an ultra cute toothbrush, but it's also a rather stylish and whimsical way to use a sonic toothbrush at home, or on the go.

Sensodyne Extra Whitening Toothpaste: I have used Sensodyne Toothpaste for many many years, and in fact recall my mom and dad using it when I was a kid. Therefore, as an adult I have almost always had a tube in my bathroom. These days, in addition to some of my favorite more natural toothpastes, I often reach for Sensodyne's Extra Whitening Toothpaste, and have been nothing but happy with its efficacy. 

According to Sensodyne, 

Sensodyne® Extra Whitening toothpaste breaks up stains to get your teeth whiter. Like other Sensodyne® toothpaste products, when used every day, Sensodyne® Extra Whitening toothpaste relieves sensitive teeth by building a protective barrier that blocks the pain caused by hot, cold, sweet and other contact triggers and it keeps it from coming back. It also leaves a fresh, clean feeling in your mouth. Sensodyne® Extra Whitening toothpaste is the #1 selling toothpaste for sensitive teeth in the U.S.

Available at drugstores and grocery stores in the US. 

*Trusted Health Products OraMD The Mouth Doctor: OraMD is a multipurpose all natural liquid toothpaste, mouthwash and breath freshener. It is potent and effective, but will take a little adjustment when you are accustomed to using a traditional toothpaste. It is remarkable how clean my teeth and mouth feel when I use OraMD.

According to Trusted Health Products,

OraMD is the revolutionary, 100% pure and natural liquid toothpaste, mouthwash and breath freshener with ingredients that kill the harmful bacteria that lead to gum disease and other oral health problems. 

  • Pure Ingredients – 100% Natural Almond, Spearmint and Peppermint Oils
  • Ingredients help create a healthy environment in your mouth
  • OraMD’s peppermint oil has potent anti-bacterial properties
  • Has interdental access, so it gets in between your teeth and those hard-to-clean areas
  • Leaves a fresh and clean feeling unlike anything you’ve ever experienced
  • Ingredients polish teeth
  • Safe and effective for everyone ages 3 and up
  • May taste a little stout for the first 3-7 uses
  • Safe for braces, veneers, bonds, crowns, fillings and dentures
  • Also available in Extra Strength, a more advanced formula 
  • Convenient to carry in your pocket or purse, and can be used anytime to keep your mouth fresh and clean
  • Manufactured in the USA by Trusted Health Products
  • Vegan
  • Not tested on animals
  • One bottle lasts a month using our 4 step process (2 drops per application)
Suggested use:

Step 1: Brush twice a day in the morning and evening using 2-5 drops of OraMD on a toothbrush and brush normally. Do not swallow.
Step 2: Floss every evening before brushing – more frequently as needed. Get any food particles out from between teeth.
Step 3: Use OraMD as mouthwash twice a day: morning and evening. Just put 1-2 drops into an ounce of water, swish and gargle. This is important to kill the bacteria in the entire mouth including the back of tongue.
Step 4: Mid-morning, mid-afternoon and as needed: put 1-2 drops on the tip of the tongue to coat the gum line and teeth to kill bacteria and keep breath fresh. Care Instructions: Avoid Eye Contact, Do not swallow, Do not use while pregnant or breastfeeding.
Step 5: Follow the oral hygiene instructions provided by your dentist and hygienist, and have regular dental cleanings and checkups.

What else you need to know:
  • OraMD cleans and polishes teeth but does not contain a whitener. If you need to whiten your teeth, you may want to use baking soda and hydrogen peroxide 2 to 3 times per week. A whitening toothpaste can be used 2 to 3 times per week but because of the chemicals in toothpaste you need to rinse extremely well and coat gums with OraMD after any whitening.
  • OraMD is safe and recommended for children age 3 and older with no allergies to peppermint, spearmint and nuts. Start with 1 drop of OraMD diluted with 5 drops of water. Care Instructions: Avoid Eye Contact, Do not swallow, Do not use while pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • OraMD is strong the first several times you use it, this is the product working and this will subside. Keep OraMD out of direct sunlight and always put the cap back on after use to preserve potency.
  • If you use an oral irrigator, be sure to flush the irrigator with medium hot water for 20 seconds. Use nylon toothbrushes and avoid plastic toothbrushes. Avoid using foam cups – polystyrene plastics will not hold up to the menthol in this product
Ingredients: 100% pure peppermint, spearmint and almond oil.

Peppermint Oil This 100% natural botanical oil is a proven natural combatant to many types of the bacteria in your mouth. Since OraMD is an oil, it does not dry out your mouth like toothpaste and mouthwash can because it is not alcohol based. The oil seeps between the gum line and attacks your bacteria even while you sleep and provides additional support to fight dry mouth. Dry mouth causes the bacteria to multiply at an accelerated rate and must be controlled for good oral hygiene.

Spearmint Oil We use only the most potent and powerful species of all our botanical oils and our spearmint oil is no different. Like the peppermint oil, spearmint oil fights the 22 known harmful bacteria in your mouth, but when the two are combined they make a synergistic and powerful product.

Almond Oil By using OraMD, with its almond oil you’ll be allowing your mouth to have the bacteria control you need for your mouth to heal itself. Almond oil provides just the right base for peppermint and spearmint.

Single Bottle $22.97 from Trusted Health Products.

Overall Assessment: This is my current oral care dream team, and I just couldn't be happier with the results that I am getting.
