Upgrade your Oral Care Routine

Try award winning Crest Gum Detoxify + Whitening Two-Step toothpaste. Separating the ingredients into two steps helps them work to their fullest potential to give you a visibly whiter and healthier mouth. Since the gum line is a prime breeding ground for harmful plaque bacteria, cleaning it thoroughly is key to treating and preventing gum issues.

Step 1, the Gum Detoxifying Treatment, targets the millions of plaque bacteria around the gum line, neutralizing them for clinically proven healthier gums. Then Step 2, the Whitening Gel, gently polishes away surface stains for a whiter smile in just one week.

  • Neutralizes harmful plaque bacteria around the gum line to treat and prevent early gum disease
  • Powerful enough to help reverse gingivitis
  • 6X Whitening in one week†

  • Disclaimers:
    * Gingivitis improvement vs ordinary toothpaste
    † Improvement vs ordinary toothpaste


Unique two-step system for better results

Step 1 neutralizes bacteria around the gum line to help reverse early gum damage

Step 2 gently buffs away surface stains for a noticeably brighter smile

Make the two-step system part of your daily routine for results after one week

Step 1 – The Gum Detoxifying Treatment

Start with Step 1, the Gum Detoxifying Treatment, and squeeze your normal amount of paste onto your toothbrush and begin to brush. Pay special attention to the gum line to help the activated foam seek out and neutralize harmful plaque bacteria. Brush for one minute and then spit, but don’t rinse.

Step 2 – The Whitening Gel

Switch to Step 2, the Whitening Gel, which will help gently polish away surface stains. Brush for one minute, then spit and rinse. Repeat this system daily as part of your cleaning routine.

This leaves my teeth

This leaves my teeth so white. It’s pretty easy to use, it doesn’t take long at all. The mint is standard. It comes with two steps the actual toothpaste then the whitening gel.

In my opinion white

In my opinion white teeth are a must when wearing red lipstick. And while we’re still out there masking up, why not get a little excited about the future and brighten that smile, right?! For both of those reasons I have tried almost every whitening system that costs less than $50. Believe me I’d pay more but like most of us, I’m constrained by financial priorities. So I can say with all honesty and immense excitement, I LOVE THIS STUFF! It takes the same amount of time as regular brushing, just to note: you use this in place of brushing. And they kgum detox is totally a bonus! I use it twice a day for one week and then take a week or two off. To be especially forthcoming, I also use the ARC Precision Applicator Whitening Pen in between. You get a good amount, too; 4oz of the gum detoxify and 2.3oz of the whitening gel. So it lasts forever (just in case we have to stick it out with the masking up for a little longer) So while my red lipstick sits alone and neglected in my makeup bag, Crest Gum Detoxify +Whitening 2 Step Toothpaste is helping me prepare to bring my ol’ buddy out of a forced retirement. A little word to the wise Crest has a consumer guarantee for their products. If you aren’t satisfied you can get a refund (one time per household) but I guarantee if you spend the money, $11.99 at Target, you won’t need to do that. You may also want to be patient and keep an eye out because Crest has a lot of coupons and sales, especially at Target. Go for it!!

My friend introduced me to this and I’ve been using it since. It’s the cleanest my mouth and teeth have ever felt. I swear it’s the best even for your gums as well

I love this product. It’s completely taken care of the occasional bleeding that would happen with my gums but has also lightened my teeth quite a bit. It’s a little weird the process but you get used to it

I am loving this! My teeth feel like I was just at the dentist. I feel clean and smooth and shiny! I don’t feel a lot whiter. I have sensitive teeth and gums and this doesn’t bother me much. I have a lot less plaque. That’s for sure.
