Toothpastes contain abrasives to help clean the surface of the teeth to better remove plaque buildup and prevent cavities. Usually gentle, these abrasives work hard as you brush to reveal a healthier smile without damaging your enamel. However, if you experience sensitivity pain or show signs of enamel loss, look for a low-abrasive or non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste.
Crest toothpastes are formulated with hydrated silica, a mild abrasive that ensures you get an effective, yet gentle clean with whitening benefits by removing surface stains. Crest toothpastes with lower levels of abrasiveness include:
- Crest Cavity Protection Toothpaste – formulated with stannous fluoride to help prevent cavities and decay
- Crest Sensitivity Protection – actively builds a therapeutic layer to help reduce the pain associated with sensitivity
- Crest Gum & Enamel Repair – promotes gum health and repairs weakened enamel
Additionally, all of Crest’s kid-friendly toothpastes typically contain lower levels of abrasive ingredients than standard toothpastes and come in a variety of fun flavors.
