The following is a description and some features of Dr. Collins All White Toothpaste according to the Dr. Collins website:
…Wine, coffee and soda may taste great, but they can leave unattractive surface stains on your teeth. The All White Whitening Toothpaste, with its uniquely developed formula comprised of Xylitol and Peroxide, reduces plaque formation and helps whiten stained teeth. The formula has been developed with a 25% concentration of Xylitol, along with Sodium Monofluorphosphate to prevent cavities. All White also contains the antibacterial agent Cetyl Pyridinium Chloride to help fight bad breath. It is safe for dental work, and has the added ingredient of baking soda topped off with a great vanilla mint taste. The All White Whitening Toothpaste is a great way to help maintain a “post-cosmetic” smile or keep the natural white you may already have…

The following attributes are rated on a scale of 1 - 5 (1=poor 5=excellent)
Aesthetic Appeal = 4
As with other Dr. Collins products, the packaging is nothing fancy - just their signature black and white look. I liked the easy-squeeze lid they added to this product - a feature I always appreciate. The toothpaste itself is real thick and substantial(looks like it means business). The paste is plain white in color. I give this a 4 out of 5 rating just because the toothpaste looks so solid, and I meant that metaphorically, not literally, of course.
Durability = 5
There really wasn’t much to test with this product in regards to durability. However, the toothpaste tube was pretty consistent with the leading toothpaste products on the market in terms of its’ strength.
Functionality = 5
Bottom line, it works. After a 3 week test period, my teeth are approximately 1 shade lighter. I made sure to eliminate other variables in my diet, and brushing habits throughout the 3 weeks to ensure that my results could be accurately attributed to this toothpaste. Sure enough, my teeth are noticeably whiter. I will probably discontinue use of this product for another 6 months or so only because my teeth are as white as I want them at the moment.
Taste is typically a huge issue for me when it comes to toothpaste. After all, for the amount of time I spend brushing, I don’t want to spend it wanting to gag. Luckily, Dr. Collins All White Toothpaste has a pretty mild taste. I’d liken the taste to a dinner mint, only a touch less intense. Bottom line, it won’t knock you off your feet, but it will leave a clean, minty aftertaste in your mouth for hours.
Least Favorite Attribute
This is a tough one, because this is great toothpaste. My one recommendation for Dr. Collins would be to offer a larger tube option.
It works. Most “whitening” toothpastes did not work for me. This does. I also enjoyed that this toothpaste not only whitens teeth, but it also contains ingredients proven to prevent cavities, fight bad breath, and reduce plaque as well.
Great product. Probably my favorite of the four Dr. Collins products I’ve reviewed. The results were well above average, as I was able to whiten my teeth a minimum of 1 shade.
