    I suggest you buy a Phillips Sonicare toothbrush....then just use any whitening toothpaste.

    Hmmm.....I could use one of those fancy toothbrushes.

    Do you recommend any particular model? There seems to be a quite a number of different models on Amazon, ranging from $40 to well over $100........

    I am not sure which model I got. It was the $99 one at Walmart.

    We use Sonicare brushes in our house. Very effective cleaner but the vibration on your teeth takes a little getting used to. FYI, replacement heads are $10-$15 a piece and should be replaced every 3 months. The brushes now come with a UV sterilizer.

    So you're saying it may not be my toothpaste that's the problem, but rather my toothbrush? Thanks for replying. :)

    Well, I just placed an order with Amazon for a couple of Sonicares. Thanks for the input guys. I didn't expect to end up buying new toothbrushes as a result of clicking on this thread.:p

    You can get them a little cheaper on Amazon, especially through Subscribe & Save.

    I like the arm and hammer stuff, but if you've got coffee stains, a good electric toothbrush and I don't know if you've seen em, but a dental eraser worked wonders for getting those same stains off of my teeth.

    This is the uk one, but I'm sure there are loads available where you are, also.

    Haha! You've been down there too long. From Amazon.ca (.com won't ship outside God's country)

    That's like $5000 or so in greenbacks! At least the shipping is free... :p

    Heh....

    I looked up the price, y'know, not to make you feel bad or anything......;):p

    The same thing costs $23.44 on .com, and if you go through Subscribe & Save, you save 15%, so it brings it down to $19.92.

    1992......that was a good year.........:D

    Quite possibly, actually.

    I remember reading that they've finally been given permission to have warehouses in Canada. I guess that'll kick in in the next couple of years.....

    $99 for a toothbrush, that's just crazy to me.

    Well, you heard him NYR99......time to return it.



    @NYR99: Is your username Gretzky-related?

    Yup, call me crazy for wanting healthy, white teeth...lol
    Haha..."Hello Walmart...I would like to return my year-old toothbrush".

    And yes, New York Rangers is my favorite sports team. And Gretzky is my favorite player and #99 is my favorite number.

    You'd be surprised at what they'll take back. I know someone who returned their very used 1 year old George Foreman grill without the box or receipt.....and they gave him store credit.:eek:

    I was a huge Gretzky fan growing up in the 80's........when he was traded to the Kings, I got a white Kings Gretzky jersey. The Rangers got him in the twilight of his career, but he was still amazing to watch.

    Now you have McCabe, aren't you lucky!;)

    I wish I could have seen him in his prime, but I'm 25. I started watching hockey in '97 I believe.

    Yeah, I was just a little kid in the 80's, but I still remember being in complete awe.:eek:


    Just wanted to say that the Sonicare is absolutely amazing. I can't believe it took me this long to get one.

    Do you guys leave it on the charger at all times when you're not using it, or do you only charge it when it runs down?

    I just leave it in the charger. Been using it for over 2 years now (2 handles used for 5 people twice a day) and the batteries are still fine. I don't think it matters either way.

    I'll use any good brand, as the formulas are practically the same. And a standard toothbrush which still remain several times more effective than electric ones.
