  • Best for those looking for: An effective whitening toothpaste with safe ingredients

  • #dirtcheap at under $3/tube

keep in mind

  • You will be thrown off by the taste at first – If you’ve been using traditional Crest/Colgate/Sensodyne gels your whole life, this will taste less sweet and a little saltier (You’ll likely end up preferring it longer-term, but the initial few days are weird)
  • You will be thrown off by the texture at first – It’s definitely grittier and not as smooth as typical gels


Most whitening toothpastes I have tried over the years never seemed to work that well. Some left my teeth feeling sensitive while others just didn’t seem to make any type of difference. On recommendation from my dentist, I decided to try this Arm & Hammer one years ago and I have not looked back.


The baking soda based blend creates an undeniably unique taste and texture. It certainly takes a few days to get used to after decades of using overly sweet Colgate/Crest gels. But once you turn the corner and adjust to the feeling, it starts to feel like how toothpaste should feel. You end each session feeling truly clean and like your teeth were actually improved a little bit. Within a few weeks I did notice generally whiter teeth as well. At under $3/tube, it also makes for one of the more cost efficient brands on the market. Check with your dentist first to see if this is compatible with your teeth and if so, we think you will be wondering why you didn’t find this sooner.

Colgate Optic White Advanced Teeth Whitening Toothpaste

This is another good paste for whitening although it is a bit more expensive. Contains sucralose


Crest 3D White Brilliance Vibrant Peppermint Teeth Whitening Toothpaste

Also effective in terms of whitening, but the ingredient list overwhelms Arm & Hammer’s (in a bad way). Contains sucralose too


Sensodyne Pronamel Gentle Teeth Whitening

For some reason, over the years, Sensodyne has managed to be marketed as the go-to recommendation by dentists. It’s solid and does the job well is almost double the price of Arm & Hammer and does not do as good of a job, in my opinion. The cap and bottle design always seemed to throw me off as well


Marvis Toothpaste

I had no idea there was even a such thing as “designer toothpaste” until an ex-girlfriend bought me an entire gift set of these. If you want to stunt on your house guests when they come over to use your guest bathroom, buy one of these as a good #giftsunder$50. Obviously, they aren’t cheap or are recommendation in terms of performance. But they taste good and are fun for travel
