I wouldn’t know… any time I have tried using them, they make my teeth ache and I have to stop using them!

I used them and loved them! My dentist even commented on how I wouldn’t need any in-office whitening appointments because the color turned out so nicely.

I love them and they work great. The bleach from the dentist is so strong it was eating my gums away. Anyway, wait a couple weeks then use them and you’ll be good for your wedding day.

@bunnees: Same here! My dentist continually raves on how nice my teeth look.

 

I use them twice a year and have been doing so for about three years now. While they do make your teeth a bit sensitive (which goes away) it is well worth it. I also use the Listerine whitening mouth wash twice daily to keep away daily stains. So far so good. 🙂

they rock! Fiance (now husband) and i split a box of the advanced ones and used them daily for 3-4 weeks before the wedding and our teeth whitened right up.

they are still pretty white and i havent used a strip since 8/5.

definitely recommend using them. like pp’s said, be careful with your gums – dont let the strip cover your gums or they might get irritated.

Yes, they totally work! I’ve never even tried the advanced ones, only the basic ones. I’m sure they’re even better.

Your teeth will still be whiter than they are now in October.  You could use a whitening toothpaste though to keep them a bit whiter for longer.

I love them! Totally worth it. My Fiance uses the Gentle ones because he has sensitive teeth and they work well too. They don’t whiten as fast as the 3D Advanced do, but they still work well.

I actually cut the strips to better fit my teeth. That way the excess doesn’t touch my gums or wrap around the underside of my teeth. Less sensitivity that way.

I used mine for less than half as long {day-wise} as the box recommended. My teeth went from really yellow (i mean baaad) to a normal shade of white. They probably could have been suuuper white if I used them for another week.

I did the $80 box, and split it with Darling Husband.   It made a huge difference and didn’t seem to hurt as much as the cheaper ones.   They do work though!
