Supersmile Review & Give-a-way Ends 02/12/2011...


I know I have posted about oral hygiene in the past but it's something that is very important to me and my family! I not only want clean, healthy teeth but keeping my teeth looking white is also very important to me! I've seen Supersmile featured on QVC so many times but never tried their products until now... I was SO excited when Supersmile sent me a tube of their Professional Whitening Toothpaste in Original Mint along with their Ripple Edge Tongue Cleaners for review. But first let me tell you a little about Supersmile before telling you what I thought about their products.

Supersmile was founded in 1987 by current President and CEO, Lucia Smigel.


Her husband, Dr. Irwin Smigel, whose achievements in aesthetic dentistry have been documented in a permanent exhibit unveiled by the Smithsonian Institute and National Museum of Dentistry, created the first whitening toothpaste to brighten the smiles of his first generation bonding patients in the mid 1980′s. With his patients in mind, Dr. Smigel created the toothpaste as a small gift to keep their smiles white, strong and healthy between visits. Originally retailing out of Dr. Smigel’s Madison Avenue office, patients were lining up three deep to get some of this miracle toothpaste. One of those patients happened to be an editor at Mademoiselle Magazine, and sure enough the following month the toothpaste received a laudable write-up. The groundbreaking toothpaste took off. Overwhelmed by the response but armed with strong foresight, Lucia saw an opportunity to turn the toothpaste into a viable operation. Way ahead of the tooth whitening boom, Lucia expanded the brand into a twenty SKU product line.

Today, under Lucia’s leadership Supersmile has become a celebrated line of complete oral care retailing in thousands of locations in over a dozen countries and is a favorite of celebrities world-wide.

Hailed the “#1 Whitening System” recommended by cosmetic dentists, Supersmile continues to gain awareness for its unparalleled ability to safely whiten while also cleaning and protecting teeth.

So after learning all of that you can imagine how excited I was to be able to review some of the Supersmile products for myself. I received a 4.2 oz Supersmile Professional Whitening Toothpaste in the Original Mint flavor which retails for $21. Supersmile Whitening Toothpaste with Fluoride brightens teeth 273% more effectively than the leading national brand.
  • Whitens: Calprox® safely lifts surface stains such as coffee, tea, tobacco, red wine and other stains without harsh abrasives or the risk of sensitivity. Maintains and enhances the vibrancy of professionally bleached teeth. Restores bonding, caps, veneers and dentures to their original whiteness.

  • Freshens: Sodium Bicarbonate provides long-lasting germicidal protection for fresher breath.

  • Strengthens: The combination of Calcium, Phosphates and Magnesium re-mineralizes tooth enamel.

  • Protects: Fights against cavities with fluoride.
  • Silica Free, Gluten Free, Sulfate Free, Dye Free, Kosher

| How It Works |


Supersmile Toothpaste with Calprox® works by gently dissolving the protein pellicle - a thin layer of protein that forms on the tooth surface, and to which plaque, bacteria, and of course, stains adhere. Removing the protein pellicle leaves the teeth feeling cleaner for a longer period of time. Baking Soda provides long-lasting germicidal protection to ensure fresher breath and to prevent gum disease. Teeth are protected with Fluoride while the Calcium and Phosphates work to re-mineralize tooth enamel.


Since Supersmile Toothpaste contains no gritty silica - the abrasive ingredient commonly used in commercial toothpastes to scrape away the pellicle – it is 75% less abrasive than the recommended standard set by the American Dental Association.

Now let me tell you that I have been using Supersmile for about 3 weeks now and am very happy with the product. You actually use the product on a dry toothbrush and add no water which was hard to get used to because the first thing that I always do before brushing is wet the bristles. So after I got used to this it was just fine. You only need a pearl sized amount and about 2 minutes. Just brush in a circular motion for the 2 minutes and then rinse with water. It's really no different than brushing on a regular basis. The toothpaste itself is very minty and I really enjoy it as with some whitening products you get a funky flavor, with this it's just fresh and minty. My teeth are very smooth and clean after brushing with this product which I love and I can definitely tell a difference in the color of my teeth!! I am very happy with the Supersmile Toothpaste so far and can't wait to continue to use this product so see how much lighter they will get.

The next product sent for review is the Ripple Edge Tongue Cleaner (6 pack) which retails at $22.

| Details |

Using Supersmiles patented Ripple Edge Tongue Cleaner once a day eliminates the harmful bacteria and plaque that are the cause of over 85% of bad breath.
  • Eliminates the bacteria that cause bad breath and gum line cavities

  • Aids in the prevention of gum disease

6 Multi-Colored Tongue Cleaners Weight: 1.3 oz


I ALWAYS brush my tongue with my toothbrush but had never tried an actual Tongue Cleaner before. My husband works in retail and is a fanatic about his breath because he works with so many people on a daily basis and always worries that his breath might smell so he was very excited to use this product. It's very easy to use as you just bend the colorful Tongue Cleaner into like a U shape and just scrap the cleaner from back to front.

That's it, that's all you do and if you do this once a day it will eliminate bacteria and plaque that cause 85% of bad breath! Craig and I have both been using these daily and love that we are doing something healthy for our mouths and love the fact that we are getting rid of bad breath! I also love the fact that you get 6 of these in a package and you can use the same one for about 3 months. You just rinse and reuse- love that!!

Supersmile not only sells their awesome Toothpaste (which is available in several flavors) but they sell other things like mouth rinse,

professional whitening gum (I would LOVE to try that),

professional whitening floss and many other great products which all help you to keep your teeth clean,healthy and best of all white!!
