So many toothpastes!

Extra whitening, enamel-protecting, cavity-fighting, sensitivity-reducing … with so many toothpastes to choose from, how do you find the right one for your mouth?

These ingredients work together to harden enamel, reducing those sensitive episodes. Finally, choose a toothpaste with a flavor that you like, so you will be happy to use it at least twice every day.
