bubbles83:  Crest 3D Strips for sure. My advice is…. Don’t do the 1 day treatment, or 3 day treatment….. Do the full 2 weeks (is it 2? Or 1?). It is a pain in the butt but it bleaches better and I think you see the results a lot more. Also, the fast treatments really affect the enamel of your teeth (more so than the slower process) and that can cause a lot of sensitivity.

Good luck!!!!

bubbles83:  the crest whitening luxe are amazing. They work really fast and I see a difference after using them. I’ve tried Rembrandt–the strips are not good but the trays are great! So here’s my pros and cons: 


crest whitening luxe: amazing whitening,no sensititivity, works straight away. The only con is the price–luxe are a lot more expensive than the regular ones,but the regular ones dont work. 


Rembrandt trays: trays are messy, but they work great. Teeth are sensitive after, but the price is good for the results. The Rembrandt toothpaste is amazing for whitening results but it’s a little harsh— so. I recommend HELLO brand toothpaste. 

HELLO toothpaste: all natural,amazing and it whitens better than any whitening product I’ve ever used–and it’s safe!  I’m 25 and have never had a cavity, I swear by this toothpaste.

My finance is a dentist. Crest white strips work great, however look at the main ingredient (or active ingridient):  hydrogen peroxide. So for the cheapest most effective teeth whitening mix hydrogen peroxode with your mouthwash and rinse. It works I am currently doing it, and a lot of his patients have done it as he always recommends it!

I mix hydrogen peroxide & baking soda, whitens just as well as any bleaching product I’ve ever tried. Also, coconut oil is a natural teeth whitener. I’ve noticed a difference in a matter of days.

This is what I’ve gathered from my teeth whitening product research:  There are different percentages of hydrogen peroxide in teeth whitening products to consider.  The higher the percentage, the less time you will have to wear them on a daily basis but this may cause some gum or teeth sensitivity to some.

A bottle of hydrogen peroxide contains 3%, Crest strips range from 6-10%, and professional whitening gels from the dentist (although some are available through Amazon) can range from 14-30+%, so it will depend on how stained your teeth are currently, how fast you want your teeth whitened, and how sensitive your teeth and gums are.

I’d recommend using the Crest 3D strips (which I believe are 10%) and then rinsing with hydrogen peroxide after you finish all the treatments to maintain your shade.

ETA: A couple of helpful tips I read about during a teeth whitening process: Brush your teeth with just a wet toothbrush before putting on a strip since toothpaste contains flouride which can inhibit the penetration of the hydrogen peroxide solution.  If your teeth do get sensitive from the treatments, using Sensodyne toothpaste is recommended.

I have heard that the Crest strips really works when you want teeth whitening in a small period of time. I have not thought of things like this for my wedding. Looks like I still have a long way to go for my wedding. I had a freind who even did a breast augmentation,  before her wedding. At that time I thought it was silly, but now thinking like a bride-to-be I understand how she might have felt.
