I also had that thick whiteness form on my teeth an hour or so after using Crest Pro Health. I had to stop using it after a couple of days as I felt that whatever that stuff was that formed on my teeth, gums and lips was also starting to clog my throat.

Comment:
Crest Pro-Health toothpaste has caused an allergic reaction that is very annoying. Tiny blisters have formed on my bottom lip and chin, followed by peeling of all the skin affected.
