Does anybody else here drink wine? What about coffee? Tea anybody? Yea, I thought so.
Changing your diet specifically for your teeth can be a tough thing to do. I doubt many of us are going to steer away from that morning cup o’ joe just because we’re worried about staining our teeth.
I certainly won’t.
That’s why it’s important to surround yourself with products that let you slide a little. Finding a toothpaste that will wipe away those stains from everyday drinks and activities can be huge in allowing your self-imposed food limits to expand a little. Rembrandt Intense Stain claims to be one of those products. Today we’re going to find out if it is in this Rembrandt toothpaste review.
No Painting Here
Even if you don’t buy the product, say “thanks Rembrandt” in your prayers tonight because these guys were the ones who started the whole whitening toothpaste thing. That’s right, they kicked this whole thing off back in 1989. It came from the source too – originally developed by an actual cosmetic dentist. Somebody who actually knew his stuff.
Since the initial release in ’89, Rembrandt has released a variety of teeth whitening products, including Intense Stain, which is now their flagship product. The idea is simple – a no frills, fluoride based whitening toothpaste that helps restore enamel and whitens your teeth.
This is done using a blend of micro-polishers – tiny little particles that work to polish your teeth and get the gross looking stuff off. Beyond that, it works to prevent stains as well. The active ingredient, tetrapotassium pyrophosphate actually keeps the stuff that stains your teeth from sticking to them. If the bad stuff can’t stick, then it can’t stain your teeth. Pretty simple.
Finally, this toothpaste contains fluoride that helps to prevent cavities. The fluoride will bind to the enamel eating acid that the bacteria in your mouth produces, making that acid less damaging to your enamel.
Does It Work?
So, with all those fancy technical terms out of the way, does this stuff actually do anything? Well, the simple answer is: yes. You’re certainly going to find Rembrandt Intense Stain effective at teeth whitening to some extent.
Teeth whitening is quite the fickle little fairy, and as such it’s difficult to predict how extreme your results will be. The basics are this: if you’re regularly consuming stain-inducing products such as coffee, tea, wine, and tobacco then you’ll see much better results than if you don’t. That’s because as powerful as the whitening elements of this Rembrandt toothpaste are, the stain preventing elements are much stronger. It’ll certainly help to whiten your teeth, but it’ll do an even better job at keeping them from going back to yellow.
If you’re due for a cleaning anytime soon, you’d be especially wise to pick up a couple tubes of this Rembrandt toothpaste so you can keep that clean going for months on end.
Devil’s In The Details
Beyond the super stain-fighting powers we looked at a few other aspects of Intense Stain for our Rembrandt toothpaste review:
The packaging is pretty regular to be honest. The tube has a wide cap so you can stand it on its head (great for saving space). You can buy a variety of sizes that will last you from weeks to months depending on the size. Also, each tube is enclosed by both an aluminum seal and a plastic seal. Make sure to remove both for maximum squeezing power.
Taste and Texture
The taste of Intense Stain is pretty tame. When you open the tube for the first time you’ll smell a pretty powerful mint flavor, but don’t worry because the taste isn’t nearly that strong. You also might notice the hint of a baking powder taste, but that wasn’t anything that bothered us too much. After using Arm and Hammer toothpaste regularly there isn’t a baking powder flavor that will ruffle my feathers at all. Finally, the texture is a tad bit runny, but mostly smooth. It’s not a big deal but it’ll take tad bit of getting used to.
If you suffer from Celiac disease or any gluten allergies, have no fear and brush away. This Rembrandt toothpaste is gluten free.
Rembradnt as a company does not test on animals at all. If they need live test subjects they just kidnap people and force them to use their toothpaste. Just kidding – they use volunteers.
