Ever since I was a young tot, I remember brushing my teeth with Colgate toothpaste. My dentist recommended it, my parents liked it, and Mighty Mouse used it. If it was good enough for Mighty Mouse, it was good enough for me. I have had a love affair with Colgate toothpaste ever since. This article will explain why I love my Colgate Total Whitening toothpaste.
One of the things I really liked about Colgate to begin with was the taste. It was not a strong peppermint taste, like other toothpastes had. It did not feel gritty on my teeth, like other toothpastes. To this day, I can be assured Colgate is still like that. At least, the ‘original’ variety is.
My Colgate Total Whitening toothpaste has many features. The dispensing tube comes in different sizes. There is a convenient travel size, which is very nice. It fits remarkably well in the travel pouch I carry in my overnight bag. For at home uses, there also are larger sizes that are more economical.
The labels are varying colors and designs depending on the flavor chosen. It seems that throughout the years the Colgate name uses the same font and coloring on the box labels. The same coloring (as that found on the box) is on the tube. At least, mine is white printed on a red background. My Colgate Total Whitening toothpaste has labels that are easy to see and read.
In fact, the packaging is great for my Colgate Total Whitening toothpaste, as it is for all varieties of Colgate. It is difficult to get the different flavors and features confused with such distinctive coloring and printing. I love the Colgate boxes.
My Colgate Total Whitening toothpaste is available in either a gel or paste form. It is a matter of personal preference. The paste variety is how it all started. That is what I prefer and use to this day.
My Colgate Total Whitening toothpaste claims to remove surface stains from my teeth when used as directed. I will not argue with that statement.
My Colgate Total Whitening toothpaste claims to fight tartar buildup while also whitening teeth. It helps to prevent cavities (tooth decay), gingivitis, and plaque above the gum line. I can attest to all of those claims. In more technical terms, it is known to be an anticavity fluoride and antigingivitis toothpaste.
There are two active ingredients in my Colgate Total Whitening toothpaste. One is sodium fluoride, which is used for anticavity purposes. The other active ingredient is found in triclosan, which is used for antigingivitis purposes.
What I like about my Colgate Total Whitening toothpaste is the contact information available on the packaging. It is located on both the box and tube. One piece of contact information is a toll-free phone number customers can call with questions and/or comments. The other piece of contact information the Colgate-Palmolive Company lists is their website address. I have found both methods to be very efficient and user friendly. This contact information applies to all varieties of Colgate, not just my Colgate Total Whitening toothpaste.
There is nothing fancy about my Colgate Total Whitening toothpaste. It is very functional, practical, and economical. I cannot imagine my life without it. I will love my Colgate Total Whitening toothpaste forever.
