    Gentle Whitening

    Hardens Enamel Protects Against the Effects of Acid Wear*

    • Wine Acids
    • Fruit Acids
    • Soda Acids

    #1 Dentist Recommended Brand for Sensitive Teeth+
    Acid Protection Formula

    Help protect your teeth against the growing problem of acid wear
    Dentists have reported a growing dental health concern due to changing modern diets: 'acid wear'.  Even teeth without cavities can be affected.  Acids in everyday food such as some fruit and acidic drinks like orange juice and wine can dissolve minerals from our teeth, softening the enamel surface which is then more easily worn away.  As the enamel becomes thinner, teeth can become visibly less white, weaker and sensitive.

    New Sensodyne Pronamel Gentle Whitening toothpaste is formulated to protect against acid wear and also gently yet effectively remove stains.  As it contains fluoride it also provides all the benefits of a regular toothpaste.

    • Helps protect teeth against acid erosion
    • Helps hardens tooth enamel
    • Gently removes stains for whiter teeth
    • Contains fluoride for cavity protection
    • Specially formulated for people with sensitive teeth

    +Dentists have been recommending Sensodyne® for over 20 years.  Brushing twice a day with Sensodyne® builds a "shield of protection" against painful sensitivity.  And, since Sensodyne® has fluoride, it helps protect against cavities too.

    Indications

    • Builds increasing protection against painful sensitivity of the teeth due to cold, heat, acids, sweets, or contact.

    Warnings

    If pain/sensitivity still persists after 4 weeks of use, please visit your dentist.

    Stop use and ask a dentist if the problem persists or worsens.  Sensitive teeth may indicate a serious problem that may need prompt care by dentist.

    Keep out of reach of children.  Id more than used for brushing is accidentally swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away.

    I have used Sensodyne products for many years for sensitive teeth. This formula helped me for eroding enamel. I could not use whitening products because they made sores in my mouth and tongue and since they have added the whitening agent to this product it has not caused any soreness or gum sensitivity at all. I would recommend this product to anyone who has sensitive teeth and also want to whiten their teeth at the same time. The only negative thing is the higher price.

    Though this toothpaste makes many claims that sound promising, using it can cause problems. After about a week of regular use of this product, I began experiencing sharp dental pain in different areas of my mouth. When I stopped using it and instead tried another toothpaste, the pain stopped.

    I've read various explanations of why this happens with whitening toothpaste, and, not being a chemist, I'm not entirely sure of exactly what the process is. But be aware that you may pay a price for using this product. Other, gentler options exist.

    Comments about Sensodyne ProNamel Gentle Whitening Toothpaste for Sensitive Teeth, 4 oz:

    I have tried many sensitivity toothpastes, but I keep returning to Sensodyne Pronamel. Some were whitening formulas, some were for other specific uses in addition to sensitivity, but all had side effects. One left a metallic taste then it blocked all taste until I stopped while another left a burning, scalded sensation.
    Every time I come back to Pronamel, despite it being more expensive. True, it doesn't contain any magic ingredients. Its active ingredients are the same as most others (fluoride and potassium nitrate), but it does the job without a host of unnecessary chemicals. Best of all it's gentle on enamel, which is why I think it earns the name "Pronamel". I have receding gums, so the low abrasion formula is doubly appreciated.
    I'm not big on the messy tube design, but it's a minor gripe. This is an excellent toothpaste to use with a Sonicare toothbrush.

            I love Sensodyne, have used it for years. But this ProNamel is hard on your gums if used daily I have backed off and use it only 1-2 times a week. I am 64 years old so this is NOT for younger children! at all. Unless your dentist advises it. Be careful, the old saying, if a little works a whole more will work better NOPE

            My dentist told me I had to get some procedure to make my teeth less sensitive. I said yes, but then found out it only lasted six months!! The other option was to use this toothpaste. It works really well--my teeth are no longer sensitive. I took off one star because I find the flavor a bit too strong. Also, it has NO sodium lauryl sulfate, which is great for those who need to avoid SLS due to canker sores.

              I use this toothpaste every day as my only toothpaste, with a sonic toothbrush and an anticavity mouthwash.

              It was recommended to me by my dental hygienist because I had hypersensitive teeth—when she went in with the soft tool to brush my teeth, I flinched because it hurt so much! This was one and a half years ago, and since I switched (back) to this toothpaste, not only have dental cleanings been a breeze, but my teeth are overall less sensitive to cold water and tooth sensitivity has been a thing of the past.

              The only thing that I don't like is that sometimes I get a hint of anise, which I do not like. I'm not sure which ingredient puts that taste in my mouth, but I wouldn't say it tastes "bad," just...well, like anise.

                      I thought I'd change from the regular Sensodyne toothpaste to the ProNamel Gentle Whitening toothpaste. I had purchased a 110g tube. Using it for the first time, straight after brushing, I felt stands of skin in my mouth. The toothpaste had "shredded" the inside of my mouth. It was worse than eating something extremely salty. I will never recommend this toothpaste to anyone.
                      Years ago I experienced the same when I purchase some other tooth whitener.
                      I will now only purchase regular Sensodyne toothpaste!
