I really like BlanX toothpastes, especially BlanX White Shock toothpaste, and BlanX non-abrasive Stain Removal paste. They tick all the boxes that are important for me personally and also as a dentist.
On a personal level, I like the texture of the White Shock paste. It has a decent amount of body to it, and is not watery like some other modern pastes.
(I may receive a commission if you purchase something mentioned on this page. See more details here.)
This means that BlanX White Shock toothpaste does not feel like it's dissolving as you brush. I can brush around my teeth for 5 to 6 minutes without feeling like I'm running low on toothpaste!
Also, the paste is smooth, without being gritty, and it feels like it is gentle on my teeth. This sensation is backed up by the science, which rates BlanX toothpastes with low abrasiveness - good for your teeth!
Obviously, the same applies to the BlanX non-abrasive Stain Removal toothpaste. The extremely low abrasiveness of BlanX toothpastes is remarkable, especially for whitening and stain removal pastes!
The next thing I like is the flavor. I find this to be pleasant, not too strong, and without any burning sensation that you get with some toothpastes. I have recommended White Shock to many many patients, and to date nobody has complained about the flavor!
Blanx toothpaste comes in a really neat dispenser. The tube itself is stiff, you can't squeeze it. Instead there is a pump-action dispenser that lets you put out just the right amount of toothpaste in one go.

You don't have to think about whether you are squeezing out too little or too much. The pump does it for you! OK, you have to press the pump, but it then delivers a set amount of paste, which I think is just about the right amount.
All these things are positive, but would count for nothing if the toothpaste itself was garbage. But it's not. In fact, it's one of my favourite toothpastes, based on the science!
It contains an extract of Arctic Lichen. This has been shown to produce a gradual whitening effect on teeth, if used regularly. A year or two ago, BlanX was the only toothpaste recognized by the World Health Organization as having proof of a whitening effect!
Blanx toothpaste also contains fluoride. This has been proven scientifically to strengthen tooth enamel, and make teeth more resistant to decay.
I really like this feature. Some other toothpastes that claim to be "whitening" toothpastes are actually quite abrasive, and they get their results by being able to scrub off staining. But they are also harsh on the tooth enamel. Over time, this could lead to the enamel becoming thinner.
BlanX White Shock toothpaste, on the other hand, has been tested by independent laboratories, and been awarded a "low abrasive" ranking. Good for your tooth enamel!
BlanX also has ingredients that help control gum disease. Some of them are anti-bacterial, and fight the bacteria that cause gum disease. Other ingredients are anti-inflammatory, helping inflamed gums to settle down and become firmer.
To sum up: There are many good toothpastes available these days, and it's difficult to pick out just one that is "best". But White White Shock toothpaste is definitely up there with the best, and it is my personal favorite!
