I tried the old Crest Whitestrips and I really liked them.

I have found the original Crest Whitestrips Professional Effects to be best.  I recently tried the ones that have Advanced Seal, and they didn’t do as good of a job.  I think it’s because they are less flexible and don’t mold to your teeth as well, and it also felt like there wasn’t as much product on the strips.  They stay on your teeth better and are more comfortable, but the original ones worked so much better.

Good thread! I tried the Listerine dissolving ones…they definitely worked, but not as much as I would have liked. I’m going to try the Crest Professional Effects ones now because I think my teeth could still be whiter.

I wanted to do something on the cheaper side and read that rinsing with hydrogen peroxide (brown bottle) works!  So I have been using it for about 1-2 months now and I can definitely tell a difference!  I cant say that they are bright white, but the green tea stains have been washed away and I feel a lot better about smiling!  🙂

With that being said (hahaha) I will probably get something more intense done closer to the wedding such as dentist trays or zoom whitening

I have the Aquafresh white trays and I hate them. You have to keep them in for 45 minutes, and it is gel that is pre-portioned into each tray and chunks of it come out and sometimes the trays don’t stay in place, the trays don’t mold to your teeth like white strips do, and overall I just don’t like using them as much as crest whitestips.

I would not recommend them purely based on (lack of) ease of use. I only used like 3 trays (and not 3 days in a row) so I can’t say anything about the whitening effects. I hate to use them, so I’ve been slacking off.

I used Crest 3D white toothpaste and I had a bad reaction to it and my lips blew up (lovely).  The makeup artist I am using has super white teeth and she said she uses Topal aka smoker’s toothpaste.  I looked for it at a few drug stores and couldn’t find it but ended up finding it at Walmart.  I just started using it this week so I haven’t noticed anything yet, but we’ll see.  It was only $4 so I figured I’d give it a try.

How far ahead of the wedding would you use them?  The results don’t “fade” or anything like that, do they?

I’ve noticed that the results with Crest Whitestrips fade pretty quickly, although they do offer products to keep your teeth whiter in the meantime.  I would use them so that you finish the box right before your wedding, that way the results don’t fade too much and you don’t have a lot of time to add stains to your teeth from coffee, wine, etc.

I used the Rembrandt 2 hour whitening kit and I LOVED it. I am now just using the 3d toothpate and it helps remove all the stains and keep them off as soon as I finish the tube though I am going to buy the strips and the mouthwash as well as the toothpaste.
