The six options Colgate offers are: Advanced Whitening, Advanced Deep Clean, Advanced Fresh + Whitening, Clean Mint, Mint Strip and Whitening. Crest's options are: Pro-Health, 3D White, Baking Soda & Peroxide Whitening, Be Adventurous/Dynamic/Inspired, Cavity Protection, Complete Multi-Benefit, Pro-Health Stages, Kids, Plus Scope and Extra Whitening and Tartar Control.
Colgate's "complete protection" option, Total Advanced Whitening, claims to prevent plaque, bad breath, tartar build-up, gingivitis and cavities. Colgate also claims that it will remove surface stains up to 80%, while fighting germs for 12 hours. Colgate's toothpastes are all gluten free and have a sodium fluoride level of 0.24% with 0.14% fluroide ion.
Crest's "complete protection" option, Pro-Health Gum Protection, claims to fight sensitivity, cavities, tartar build-up, gingivitis and plaque, freshen breath and whiten teeth. It has 0.454% stannous fluoride with 0.16% fluoride ion. This means its whitening properties are likely to be stronger.
Colgate received FDA approval for the first gingivitis treatment from a toothpaste. Crest's use of stannous fluoride means that teeth can sometimes be badly stained by the toothpaste.Learn more about Dental Hygiene
