colgate enamel health toothpaste

Colgate Enamel Health Toothpaste and Toothbrush

If you are looking for a practical Stocking Stuffer this year, be sure to check out the NEW Colgate® Enamel Health(TM) Toothpaste!

I am all about teeth whitening products – in part due to age, and in part due to the gallons of coffee my husband and I drink each month.

The NEW Colgate® Enamel Health TM Toothpaste which helps smooth enamel in two ways:

1. Helps replenish natural calcium and other minerals back into weakened enamel, filling rough spots and making it stronger
2. Gently polishes the enamel surface with gentle micro-polishing action, so germs are less likely to stick to teeth

colgate 360 enamel health toothbrush

To complete the line, the Colgate® 360°® Enamel Health™ Manual Toothbrush has several features that complement the toothpaste. The uniquely designed bristles help protect enamel surfaces and gums, while the polishing whitening cups gently remove stains for a brighter smile.

These products are available at select retailers near you! Be sure to check my printable coupons page for extra savings on items like these!
