I’m pleased to be able to share my Oral B 3D White Clinical Toothpaste review thanks to the SuperSavvyMe tester panel. Their 3D White Clinical is designed to brighten your smile and while I was pretty sceptical at first, it actually has cleaned & polished my teeth quite nicely. Let’s take a look at how to perk up your choppers and what’s so special about this clinically proven toothpaste.
How Can You Get A Brighter Smile?
It seems to be an increasingly popular goal : shiny, straight, bright white teeth. While it may make someone look healthier and potentially more attractive, it ironically doesn’t mean that they have healthy teeth and gums. Discolouration can be a result of staining, diet and lifestyle over the years, or it could just be because you never had naturally white teeth. Many people don’t, but it doesn’t reflect on the health of your mouth.
Not having teeth you’re confident with make you self-conscious, and it can even affect your social life or your work. I’ve never had white or straight teeth. I’ve got some overlapping teeth and my front two teeth are like tombstones turning towards each other to say hello. The way they go inwards in a v-shape affects my bite a little, but my self-confidence a lot. My teeth aren’t all equally sized and I’ve had numerous little chips on the edges of teeth from weakened enamel. I’ve also had some gum inflammation due to dry mouth from autoimmune issues. Naturally, my teeth have a slight yellow tone or off-white colouring. I’ve avoided smiling with my teeth showing in photos for as long as I can remember and only the odd photographic proof of my teeth exists. They’re not really bad teeth, but of course we often see ourselves differently to how others do.
So how can you brighten your smile?
Veneers may be a hot topic lately as they result in straight, equally sized, perfect-looking white teeth in a way that nothing else will. But they’re very costly, risky and permanently do away with your natural teeth by filing them down to pegs. There are brace options that are far easier and more comfortable than they ever used to be, but they’re still costly and inconvenient. If you have your own gnashers and just want to perk them up, then the quickest, safest and cheapest way to brighten to your natural smile is through cleaning and whitening.
Were your teeth naturally whiter? If you have discolouration over time, an over the counter toothpaste like the new Oral B 3D White Clinical range could do a great job at removing staining, whitening and giving your teeth a healthy shine. However, if your teeth aren’t naturally a brilliant white, a more hardcore whitening procedure through bleaching by your dentist would be required. But you might just be surprised at how much cleaner your teeth can look with the right product, as I have been.
What Is The Oral B 3D White Clinical Toothpaste Range?
From the popular dental care brand Oral B comes their 3D White Clinical Whitening Restore Range for professional level cleaning and whitening.
It’s available in Diamond Clean & Power Fresh for extra shine or minty freshness. These are boxed 75ml squeeze tubes of toothpaste which are designed to remove stains, care for your teeth and leave them looking whiter. It’s a clinically proven and professionally designed product, so it’s a far cry from your ordinary toothpaste and as such will come with a higher price tag.
They provide “up to 100% stain removal” and leave you with “whiter teeth in 3 days”. This is mostly through removing surface stains and discolouration that can happen gradually over time. By removing staining, teeth can be whiter, brighter and thoroughly cleaner. It combines four actions to achieve this: loosening, lifting, polishing and protecting. So they don’t just clean your teeth and get them whiter right now, they also help prevent new surface stains.
It can be concerning when buying toothpastes for whitening and stain removal as some have been known to be quite abrasive. This range is enamel safe and will gently but effectively give you a professional clean.
Just use this toothpaste in place of your usual product. I use an Oral B electric toothbrush for half my brushing & a manual toothbrush for the rest, but it’s personal preference as to what you use. Electric toothbrushes are usually more effective at cleaning, especially with smaller round heads for getting around the back and sides of teeth.
Oral B 3D White Clinical : My Experience
I really like how fresh my mouth feels after using this toothpaste, both in Power Fresh and Diamond Clean. I love both but I’m keen on Diamond Clean for the extra shine. This range does as promised and removes staining surprisingly well, and in a few days my teeth definitely looked refreshed, cleaner and whiter. The toothpastes also leaves my mouth feeling super fresh and clean like I’ve been to a dentist, without being too strong on the minty side.
I’ve never had naturally gloriously white teeth. The only way to transform mine to pearly whites would be bleaching through a dental practice. This toothpaste, as with most over the counter products, is only going to be able to do so much, but it did far more for me than I’d anticipated. The Oral B 3D White Clinical range can still take back years of discolouration, staining and dulling, and but if your teeth are naturally off-white in some way, it won’t make them pearly white. That said, I’m very pleased with the results from this toothpaste as my teeth genuinely do look much better after even the first two brushes, with the outcome getting better the longer I use it.
I like that this will still be a good toothpaste for caring for your dental hygiene but for me it wouldn’t be a daily long-term use product because of the steep price and also because of how it works. As such, I think you can get away with using this toothpaste just as-and when, getting your teeth back to a cleaner, fresher and brighter appearance when required. I really like this way of using it because the toothpaste works its magic quickly and effectively, so it’s worth the expense when looking at the convenience, longevity of product and noticeable results.
Overall, I’m pleasantly surprised to find a whitening product that actually does as it claims. Stains and discolouration are removed quite well and teeth are polished, leaving you with a minty fresh mouth and a brighter, whiter smile.

I used this on a limited basis, every two days. My dental hygienist said it does impact the enamel. I am blessed that I have always had nice teeth, thanks to my mom. As I began to age, mine began to yellow. PLUS my regular coffee drinking didn’t help.
Good review. I was hoping to see your smiling face. When I see your posts, I do smile as I think about and pray for you!
I’m glad you’ve been able to use this but I’m surprised your dental hygienist says it impacts the enamel when Oral B specifically says it doesn’t. did your hygienist say how it does this? I know some – the harsher ones using baking power or granulated toothpastes can be abrasive, but these don’t seem to be so I’m curious. I’m glad your mum blessed you with good teeth! The yellowing and staining from coffee (tea in my case) can be remedied at least, and it doesn’t impact on the health of the teeth either which is good. I’m sorry I couldn’t bring myself to take a pic of myself for this review 😂 Maybe next time. Maybe. I’m looking rougher as times goes on I think, so it’s not pretty. I hope you and the family are keeping as well as possible Debbie, and thank you for the comment. Have a lovely week ahead! 🌺. xx
Great review. I’m going to give this a try. Thank you.
Have a fabulous day and week, Caz. ♥
Thanks, Sandee, I’m glad you liked the review & I hope you love the toothpaste if you do decide to give it a go! I hope you guys have a fab week ahead! xx
Really appreciate your honest reviews, Caz. ♥️
And I appreciate your comments – thanks lovely! I hope you’re doing okay & feeling a bit better than you were a while ago 💜 xx
Your review, Caz, I’m sure will assist those in the categories you’ve mentioned – those after a more polished looking set of choppers.
Now in my seventies, I’m one of those who have had their teeth removed or filed away to stumps and covered with falsies, veneers and crowns. Yes, it cost an absolute fortune, but, at this time in my life it has been so worth every penny! Six monthly dental visits with cleaning and general care keep the few original teeth plus ‘all others’ looking good and, as my dentist says; they, and my gums, are healthy. It is such an important part of self-care. The mouth is our first defense against ill-health.
Hahah – Happy choppers are a great goal to work towards.
I’m a wee bit jealous of your falsies, Carolyn! The thing really is the price and it’s risky if you don’t know what you’re getting. This is why a lot of people here to to Turkey or elsewhere in Europe for cheaper veneers, only to be left with a host of problems. I’m so glad it has been a great thing for you. If I had the money, I’d go that route, though maybe not now as I’m not sure I see the point with my life as it is. It’s great your gums are healthy and the couple of natural uncapped teeth are looked after regularly by the dentist to keep all ticking along nicely. How long to the full veneers last for? I’ve a feeling it’s not a once-and-done deal but I could be wrong as I know things change as dental care gets better. xx
The first crowns I had back in the early nineties were still in good shape when I had the new ones in 2017! Yes, I agree; getting a great dentist is half the battle. Mine came highly recommended and I trusted him to do a good job, which he did. He guarantees his work for a minimum of ten years. However, naturally, with good oral habits (flossing, cleaning, and the like) and keeping the gums in really good order (so important) should assist the veneers and crowns to last longer! Time will tell. But, I will not complain. The experience and self confidence I’ve gained is its own reward…
Many do the same here in Australia as you’ve explained. They travel overseas in the search of cheaper options. However, ‘cheaper’ isn’t always the cheapest route, so to speak. Many end up with some pretty serious problems. I was fortunate that, at that time in my life I was able to afford the route chosen! That wouldn’t have been the case some years past…
Caz you are soooo good at reviews this makes me want to go straight out and buy some.x
Aww thank you, Bar! I’m really glad you like my reviews – I enjoy writing them & sharing my thoughts in the hopes it might be helpful in some way. I hope the week is treating you kindly so far 💜 xx
Thanks for your helpful and honest review, Caz. I have tried this toothpaste before, but it didn’t seem to do much for me. Well, it probably did a little bit, like removing coffee stains or diet coke (which I don’t drink anymore). I think my problem wasn’t so much with the toothpaste but with the fact that I have naturally yellowish teeth. They’re relatively straight but have many crowns (and tiny chips, as you mentioned). I also have crowns at the back covering teeth that have been filled repeatedly. I’m really embarrassed about one of my old crowns because it’s a silver colour (they don’t give people silver crowns anymore). I’ve asked about changing it as it notices when I smile (as my eight-year-old grandson used to tell me). They said if they tried to remove it, I would definitely lose the tooth altogether. I’m really glad that your tests show that this toothpaste is helpful to a lot of people. I’m just unlucky, I guess. I have to use a sensitive toothpaste now, but I wonder if this brand comes in a sensitive formula. I’ll take a look at some of your links. Thanks again. P.S. I think I missed your last post, which is unusual for me. Sorry. I’m just so busy with so many things as well as writing these days. Xx 🌷💖🤗
It’s a shame it didn’t do much for you, Ellie, but I’m glad it at least reduced some staining (tea is a big one for me, like your coffee). Your issue is the same as mine which is why I tried to highlight it in the post. I find some products just make it sound like they are going to actually ‘whiten’ teeth rather than remove stains. So if you don’t have naturally white teeth, they aren’t going to be made white. The only way to do that is through bleaching by a dentist. I’m really sorry you can’t do anything with the silver crown. Maybe you can rock it like bling – some celebs pay for shiny silver or gold caps on their teeth when they don’t even need them! I’m embarrassed with my teeth but the health of them isn’t great now with gum issues since getting dry mouth. I’m tempted to get them actually whitened one day, though I feel like it’s pointless now with my life the way it is. Who knows, maybe I’ll do it as a bucket list activity if I can afford to.
You know, I spoke to the hygienist when I went for a clean not long ago. She was lovely but when I got home I noticed she hadn’t really got much done at all 😆 I said I intermittently use sensitive toothpastes as well as gum health ones and that I’m concerned about more chips. She suggested rubbing some sensitive toothpaste into the gum line and leaving it overnight. Never heard that before and I can’t say it sounds too appealing but who knows. Apparently it’ll help with sensitivity at least.
I’m so behind on everything and you certainly never, ever have to say sorry for not reading one of my posts. I’m grateful for any post you do read, and even more grateful for your thoughtful comments. I’m always around if you ever want to talk. Don’t overdo things if possible, get enough breaks and rest when you can. Look after yourself 🌼 xxxxx
Java Bean: “I keep my teeth clean and bright by chewing on Nylabones! But I understand that might not work so well for humans …”
Maybe humans just aren’t smart enough to have tried that yet – you’re ahead of the curve, Java!
I love your review and will definitely try this at some point. It’s good that it’s enamel safe because some whitening products aren’t. I don’t have brilliant white teeth either – I really wish I did but I definitely wouldn’t go down the road of having them bleached. So a good quality whitening toothpaste like this would have a space next to my toothbrush. As you know, I purchased a similar product made by another big brand. It was expensive but I’m sure it did brighten my teeth a bit. The problem was that it was so difficult to get out of the tube when the bathroom was cold!!! (I can hear you laughing again)
I couldn’t afford to use a toothpaste like this regularly either. But maybe using it for a week or two at a time would work.
Our teeth really do affect our self-confidence, don’t they?
If dental whitening/bleaching isn’t something you’re interested in, a toothpaste like this is good for brightening teeth generally and removing stains or discolouration. It just won’t ‘whiten’ them, which is what I don’t like other toothpastes and products claiming when in fact they won’t if you didn’t have naturally white teeth to begin with. It’s naughty marketing. At least these are clear that they lift stains and polish to get results. I’m glad you found something that made a difference but it did make me chuckle that the tube was foiled by the British weather! 😂 These sorts of products are so often ridiculously expensive and I think the market is so saturated with whitening stuff because so many of us are self-conscious about our gnashers. I’m happy to pay a little more if it’s something that can be used as and when like this but not for regular use, it’d be too pricey. There actually was a product (strips) that contains the ingredient to whiten teeth and apparently works quite well, but it was banned for use in the UK. Go figure! It was too good and I think the government realised they didn’t want people paying a fraction of the price to get the results when they could go to the dentist and pay 500% more! xx
I’ve been using an Oral-B electric toothbrush for years and years now. Dentist-approved! For the toothpaste though some years ago I apparently developed a sensitivity to sodium lauryl sulfate and similar things, which were causing me to develop frequent sores inside my mouth. I ended up switching to a surfactant-free toothpaste, and bam! No more sores. Well, except when I’m chewing carelessly and bite the inside of my cheek …
Oral-B electric brushes are pretty good, aren’t they? Really like the tiny brush heads too for getting to back teeth. I’m sorry you ended up with sores from some of the ingredients. It’s hard when there’s a reaction and you don’t exactly what ingredient caused it so I’m glad you found that going surfactant-free did the job. Do you also find that once you’ve bitten your cheek, you do it again later on in exactly the same place? Ouchy. Always happens to me, without fail!
I always use this Oral B toothbrush. Thanks for sharing this idea. Have a wonderful week. Let’s follow our blogs. Anita
I love their toothbrushes, too – really effective and reliable, and I prefer the smaller toothbrush heads for getting to awkward back teeth. Thanks for the comment, Anita – I hope you have a great end to your week! 🌻

Let me know.
One may not appreciate an imperfection in self and find the same endearing in another – like misaligned teeth, a cowlick, a mole, a crooked smile, or an odd voice. Those things that make one memorably unique.
You are very right, Marilee! I’ve thought as much for a while but I’ve come to find some people, myself included probably, find the little things can make a difference to how we feel and conduct ourselves. I don’t mean big changes. Just little ones to our self-confidence, like teeth or skin. We still need the big changes to be internal and to be able embrace the things that make us unique because no amount of changing our outer appearance will make us feel better overall in ourselves and with who we are 💜
Another great review Caz! I may give this a try now that I’ve read your review. Many years of coffee and tea drinking have made my teeth look not-as-white, but my teeth are so sensitive I’m always hesitant to try the whitening toothpastes. Since this one doesn’t seem to be as abrasive, I think I’ll go ahead and give it a try. I hope you’re doing as well as possible sweet friend. Hugs!
I’m really pleased you like the review, thank you! I see the concern with sensitive teeth. I’m always changing my toothpastes, or using a different one morning and evening because I want something to help my gums and another for sensitivity. These Oral B ones are supposed to be enamel safe and I’ve not noticed it make sensitivity worse for me as they’ve seemed quite gentle, but I can only speak for myself. You could always follow it up with a sensitivity toothpaste. My dentist suggested to me to put some sensitivity toothpaste on the gum Iine before I go to bed as apparently that works well. I’ve not tried it yet as it didn’t sound too appealing but it’s an idea! I hope you find the 3D White clinical helpful if you do give it a try!
Great review Caz! I actually use Oral B whitening tootbhpaste but not this Clinical range. I don’t think it’s avaIable in my country yet. I’ll keep on eye because it sounds very promising!
Thanks, Blanca, glad you like the review! I do like Oral B for their toothpaste and toothbrushes but the range is pretty big now and it’s a shame you can’t always get each type in every country. They do whitening strips we can’t get here in the UK either and they’re supposed to be really good (that’s why our government banned them, so we have to go to the dentist for professional whitening and pay far more!) I hope the 3D White Clinical is available for you before long or maybe something similar you can try. I’m a sucker for new products so it’s always nice to find one that actually does something helpful for a change! Hope you’re having a lovely weekend so far.xx
Thanks for sharing this review Caz. Like you I’ve never been bothered about how white my teeth are, as long as they’re healthy. I have super sensitive teeth so had to switch to natural toothpastes (there’s only one brand that I can tolerate!) but it’s refreshing to hear that a product actually does what it says – it’s sad that this is unusual. I just wish the cost of these products weren’t so expensive, especially with the cost of living crisis at the moment! Thanks again Caz.
I’m really glad you like the post, thanks, Lucy! I’m glad you’re not too bothered by the whiteness, it’s another level of self-consciousness we could do without. Being more focused on health is good. I guess I’m moving to the whiteness myself now because the health side of it is going downhill! 😂 I’m glad you’ve found some natural toothpastes that suit you but I’m sorry your choppers are so sensitive. My dentist hygienist told me recently that I should try a little sensitivity toothpaste on the gumline before going to bed and leave it overnight as apparently that works quite well. I’ve not tried it yet as it doesn’t sound overly appealing but it’s an idea! I’d like to hope you could get something to help ease the sensitivity for you though. xx
A brighter smile may be better, but what about a badder scowl?
Let’s face it, I need something for when I’m in a mood that’s foul!
Hahahah 😂 Shine a light on your face when you scowl and those bright whites will dazzle and daze whoever you’re in a bad mood with! 😉
Thanks for the review. This is all I use and my family , we have electric and manual. Plus we use the tooothepaste. I’m big on having a big bright smile.
Aw that’s fab, a fellow Oral B fan! I do like their stuff and the electric toothbrushes are brilliant. xx
Oh yesssss for life!!!!
