After about four weeks, I notice no visible changes. My teeth do feel smoother.

I took pictures of my teeth and gums before I started using it. I have some gingival recession (fortunately without inflammation) and am hoping for visible improvement.

My teeth are not turning brown.

As far as reducing plaque, the studies were performed on people beginning first with a dental cleaning.

I was just in Los Gatos and thought I'd pay these guys a visit to give them back their seemingly worthless product, but couldn't find a time when their office was open :lol:

ApropoE4, they informed me that their office is not set up for retail visits.

I have to use more than the recommended pea-sized amount, but brushing twice a day with about 3/4 of what you use off your regular toothpaste, seems to scrub clean without the harsh chemicals. However, I'm still brushing 3x/day with my usual Pro-Health, plus flossing 2-3x/day, tongue cleaning and water pick. Stopped the coconut pulling when my cholesterol was high. If I left out any more dental tricks , it's because, you can see I'm already over the top. Remember I have 4 SNPs that only occur in less than 2% of the population causing increased dental caries and periodontal disease. Although I have my teeth cleaned every four months, the hygienist doesn't even find plaque, it's just a pep talk to keep up such an onerous routine.

The company has been helping me deal with the browning on my teeth. They say some people have a certain protein(s) or too much of them that interacts and causes the browning. They suggested I experiment and see whether using Livionex daily and a toothpaste with higher abrasion score 2 or 3 times a week helps control the protein buildup and browning. That didn't work, but I'm now "brushing" with my tongue and Livionex first, followed by dipping a wet toothbrush in baking soda (extremely low abrasion score) and brushing with that after. So far so good. I hope it works over time but I'm not sure if the baking soda will alter the pH of my mouth in a bad way, so I've asked that. Anyone here have thoughts on it? With this routine I can say I definitely see an improvement over my prior routine. My teeth feel smoother, are shinier, and I don't notice the plaque I could always see around my gum line due to the need to avoid abrasive toothpaste. It's possible that if someone has been using a highly abrasive toothpaste they may not see much difference, but highly abrasive toothpastes (which probably all "whitening" and "tarter control" are) aren't such a great idea.

I've been using this toothpaste for about 2 months-- really like the plaque control..... But my teeth are also turning brown. Did anyone resolve this issue?

I've been using for a month. The plaque control is excellent. I don't seem to have the "turning brown" issue.

I didn't see any browning in the first month either-- it's occurring at end of second month of usage. I'm really bummed and using Tom's whitening toothpaste to see if I can clear it.

I do not see any browning after 3 tubes, but the prospect gives me pause about whether to use the product. Also, there seems to be very little product in the tube and I can't manage to dispense a "pea" like size (I am wasting a lot). I will probably not reorder unless some improvements are made and the price goes down.

I haven't noticed any browning, possibly due to the fact that I still brush with my usual toothpaste, just using the Livionex twice daily. Also using my water pick (just luke warm water), my hygenist thought this decreased my usual coffee/tea stains, so maybe this daily practice prevents Livionex's staining.
