As the category leader, Crest set out to address the ongoing struggle parents face in getting kids to brush their teeth. The experience is almost universal, with a majority of kids brushing less than the dentist recommended amount — two minutes, twice per day. Crest Kids’ newest innovation unlocks the power of color-changing technology to transform bubblegum-flavored toothpaste from blue to pink after two minutes of brushing, creating an enjoyable experience for kids and parents alike.
“We know that consistent brushing at a young age is critical to conquering cavities, and until now no other product on the market has been able to create a true change in children’s brushing habits,” said Luis Restrepo, Senior Director North America Oral Care at Procter & Gamble. “As the only one of its kind on the market today, new Crest Kids Color Changing Toothpaste redefines the expectations of what a children’s toothpaste can do by making brushing fun to establish healthy, lifelong oral care habits.”
To celebrate the launch of new Color Changing Toothpaste, Crest Kids teamed up with social media creator Dani Schaffer and her colorful son Brody to serve as the brand’s official Kid Correspondent and report how Crest Kids’ newest toothpaste has brightened up daily brushing routines.
“As a busy mom with a full house, it has always been a challenge to wrangle my kids and get them to brush their teeth consistently,” said Dani Schaffer. “Crest Kids Color Changing Toothpaste has changed the game! Brody, my youngest, is actually asking me when he can brush his teeth — he loves watching as the color transforms, and it gives me peace of mind knowing his smile is protected against cavities while still having so much fun.”
Crest Kids Color Changing Toothpaste, along with a full lineup of Oral-B color-changing themed toothbrushes, is now available online and in-store at retailers nationwide.

A trusted leader in oral health, Crest was the first oral care brand to secure the ADA Seal of Acceptance for a clinically proven fluoride toothpaste. Since first introducing fluoride toothpaste 65 years ago, it is estimated that Crest has helped prevent countless cavities in the United States.
