I use Dental Fresh and quite like it.
IME it's not going to really remove tartar build up on it's own quickly, but it does maintain and remove some when used daily. I've used it for years now. My pekes (one is almost 7 and the other is 4) have never needed a dental cleaning. Between Dental fresh in their water and different chews (bones, cow hooves, etc). their teeth are still very nice! And it really seemed to help soften the build up on my Min Pin's teeth (it got to a point where I could break it off with my fingernails) and then chewing helped removed the rest.
I use Tropiclean gel. My dobie's teeth were a mess when we got him. It removed quite a bit of tartar though he still needed a dental/tooth removal. Since then I've been using it bi weekly to help maintain, as his teeth just seem to build up with tartar very quickly. So far its been working out well!
