I’m also interested in trying out a whitening product. But I haven’t yet heard a rave review for anything. Would anyone like to offer a rave review?

In addition to whatever kit you choose, I would also brush with toothpaste dipped in baking soda and rinse with 3-5% strength hydrogen peroxide. All three will definately whiten your teeth in less than two weeks!!!

Not a kit, but a paste.  I give high marks to Crest 3D White Vivid paste.  Reasonably priced and highly effective.  Noticed a difference in just a month of use and have had several shades of improvement with continued use.

@Cappugcino: i LOVE Crest 3D White toothpaste! It’s the only stuff I use, and I’ve been told that my teeth are whiter than the white of my eyes!
As far as white strips, all the crest ones work great–but I HAVE noticed that the Professional Effects Whitestrips do make the teeth extra sensitive. (They work very quickly, though!)

Crest 2 hr works! Personally, I have used a cheaper version (plus white) for about a year now and have been really happy with the results. It’s affordable at walmart, super easy and fast to use (i’ll just use it while I’m in the shower and brush my teeth afterwards) and…. it takes only a few days to see a major difference. I’d def. say to check it out!

I’m using the disgustingly expensive Crest 3d professional stuff and actually, I’m pretty happy… 5 days in and my teeth are getting close to glow in the dark ๐Ÿ™‚

I used the lowest level of Crest 3D whitening strips to test its effectiveness months before the wedding. I also got Arm and Hammer whitening booster and Sensodyne Pronamel whitening toothpaste (my teeth tend to be very sensitive as is, much less when I whiten them, so if you’re the same way I’d HIGHLY recommend using a sensitivity toothpaste and rinsing with flouride every night for the duration of your whitening, if not starting a few days before.) My teeth are pretty stained from years of smoking and drinking coffee ๐Ÿ™ But I did notice a big difference after just a few days! So I’m going to move to the big guns next ๐Ÿ™‚

I bought (and will have to update after I use it) the Luster 1 Hour Whitening kit.  It comes with a rinse, some stuff to put on your teeth, and then a UV light or whatever to brighten your teeth in 1 hour.  I have to use it for 2 minutes and then repeat the process 10-20 times in a row.  I’ll let you know how it works. 

FYI Target has it on sale this week for $35.99 or something like that plus the company’s website has a $5 off coupon.  The reviews are good so we’ll see.

Wow, so just using the baking soda and hydrogen peroxide  in addition to the toothpaste worked? Definitely going to try it!

I’ve also read up on the professional Crest strips and found quite a number of people saying that their teeth became sensitive thereafter. Hope this doesn’t happen to you!

Thanks for the thread. Been meaning to pose this question too ๐Ÿ˜‰

@AngelJCV: My Fiance has used the Crest Whitestrips “Gentle” Version because he has sensitive teeth. It doesn’t whiten his teeth as fast as the Professional 3D strips do mine but they work pretty well. I personally love the Professional Whitestrips. They work wonderfully and I’m a smoker and coffee drinker.
