My sisters and I LOVE crest whitening strips!  I have sensitive teeth (unlikes my sisters) so whenever I’m going through my whitening weeks I make sure to switch to sensodyne toothpaste.  Otherwise they. are. awesomesauce.

Oh and I’ve done dentist whitening as well.  The only difference is the dentist is much faster.  But if time isn’t an issue save your money and go with the at home kits.

I hate the strips, I just recently for the Rembrandt 2 hour whitening kit and love it!! I have sensitive teeth, and it hasnt given me any extra sensitivity, and you use mouth guards with gel. I use one tuber per session, instead of one tube per guard. makes it last longer!!

I got my “trays” done at the dentist, but I order refill kits of the whitening product here

It’s the exact same product you get at the dentist, but a lot cheaper. You could always order something like that & buy cheap, generic trays in a kit from the grocery store. This is what we’re doing for my fiance.

White strips never worked very much for me, but this worked awesome & very quickly.

I bought the Crest white strips (the fanciest and most effective ones) and the Rembrant whitening mouth wash. The strips were okay, but a pain in the butt and really uncomfortable to remove. They also definitely make your teeth sensitive. I prefered the mouthwash, which gave me GREAT results and none of the annoyance of the strips. It was also much cheaper.

And for Rembrandt if you go to their website, there is a $5 off the kit coupon, plus a $2 off for the rinse or toothpaste

@MrsDrRose612:  I do personally, yes. It has 8 tubes of gel in it, so if you just did one per person per session, that would give you 8 sessions, 4 for each per box. It says 20 minutes per session. I use it along with the Intense Stain toothpaste (my teeth are pretty yellow from drinking coffee and tea all the time) and have noticed a decent difference. Ive only done 3 sessions so far

I am obsessed with white teeth. I love the crest professional whitening strips. I get tons of compliments EVEN from my dentist. Who then always lectures me about how those aren’t good for you. I got zoom whitening done for the wedding, my dentist is my friend so he gifted it to me and Darling Husband as our wedding gift. I didn’t notice the results to be any better than what I get with the crest strips. The only positive side is you’re done in an hour versus 10 days. But for 10x the price, it’s not worth it.

@MrsDrRose612:  The strips totally don’t bug me.  I see results in a week, so yeah 2 months is plenty of time.  But I’ve never tried Rembrandt….and that being said…

@MrsSl82be:  you’ve peaked my interest!

I’m not sure if it works, but I’ve heard that you can brush your teeth with hydrogen peroxide and get similar results (obviously don’t swallow the stuff).  The active ingredient in whitestrips is hydrogen peroxide, so it might work.  If it’s true, it’d obviously be FAR less expensive, as the HP is only a couple dollars a bottle.
