Have you seen all the hype lately about the whitening toothpaste everyone is talking about?! Well if you’re not familiar with it, it’s called AP-24 Whitening Fluoride Toothpaste, and our friend Ali Johnson over at Adeline’s Closet sells it! Ali hooked us up with a tube of the AP-24, and I have been using it for the past month. The toothpaste is made by the company Nu Skin. It’s a whitening fluoride toothpaste that lightens teeth without peroxide, while preventing cavities and plaque formation. So instead of eating your enamel, it builds and protects it. It has a gentle vanilla mint flavor that freshens breath, but it’s not a strong flavor like most whitening toothpastes. It’s also safe for kids and does not cause sensitivity, which is a big deal for some people. AP-24 toothpaste also seems to be especially helpful for people with surface stains on their teeth.
I am someone who takes really good care of my teeth on a regular basis. I brush at least twice a day for the recommended two-minute time period, often with a whitening toothpaste of some sort, and I also floss daily. I use mouthwash occasionally. I get my teeth cleaned professionally (by Karli :)) every 6 months as my insurance allows. I don’t drink soda, coffee, wine, or other drinks that can create discoloration or staining. I primarily drink a lot of water. Overall, I have great oral hygiene and my teeth are pretty white. The last few years though I’ve noticed they don’t seem to be quite as bright as they used to be. I’ve considered using bleach trays but I just haven’t done it. So when Ali offered the AP-24 toothpaste to try, I was excited to try it. Because I take really good care of my teeth already, I wasn’t expecting super dramatic results though. I was just hoping to notice a difference.
So I started using AP-24 toothpaste on June 2nd. This is my before picture on the left. I used the AP-24 pretty regularly for about a month and now only use it occasionally. These are my results on the right. Although the difference between my before and after pictures is subtle, I do feel that my teeth are brighter overall. (And I realize the lighting is not the exact same in both pictures.) My husband told me he notices a slight difference as well. So if you are looking to brighten your smile, and especially if you have problems with surface stains or teeth sensitivity, I would encourage you to try AP-24 for yourself.
AP-24 is more expensive than typical toothpastes, but it is only meant to be used until you achieve your desired whiteness, and then occasionally after that to help keep your teeth white. So the tube can last quite a while. To order you can send a Facebook message to Ali, email her at firstname.lastname@example.org, or order it from her website at Adeline’s Closet Boutique.
