Crest pro white strips every other day, and use an enamel storing mouthwash/toothpaste every day.

I’m talking about these, specifically. I like them a LOT better than regular white strips because a) they actually work, and b) the strips themselves are different and actually stay on your teeth (whereas regular ones slip and move around).

I know this is going to sound ridiculous…but I use straight hydrogen peroxide.  I use it like mouthwash (about the same amount as my mouthwash) every other night.  I SWEAR by it.  I saw pretty much immediate improvement (2nd time).  It is really easy to work in too.  Just do it before you use mouthwash.

I use the crest whitestrips – the ones you put on for 30mins a day for like 2 weeks.  I’ve done them before and they’re SO good.  They work for a good year at LEAST.  I think the last time I did them was in 2009 and I just started recently doing them again.  I don’t drink coffee or soda a lot though, so I don’t really stain my teeth – I think they advertise that they’re good for 6-12 months.

Hey there! I’m a Dentsl Hygienist, so here’s my 2 sense. I dont recomend using straight hydrogen peroxide, it can be really harsh on your gums and other oral tissues.. If your teeth are sensitive, try the sensodyne whitening toothpaste. If you havent used whitening before and already know that you have sensitive teeth, start with a toothpaste because you have better control of the application. See if you like the reuslts and if you still want to go whiter, see about getting trays made at your dental office. You’ll still have more control over the application that way, and if you get really sensitive from it, your hygienist should have an in-office treatment that will instantly help with the sensitivity. Hope that helps!

I do crest white strips – my teeth do get sensitive but I try to do it every other day or only leave them on for 20-30 minutes.  One time I accidentally fell asleep with them on and my teeth hurt soooooooo bad the next day!

I actually asked my dentist about this a couple of months ago.  I have sensitive teeth and gums, I was asking about the in-office teeth whitening and he said to just use the white strips, they work well and are less harsh on teeth and gums.  And WAY cheaper.  I love that he’s so honest, not like, just trying ot make a buck off of me, since I was the one inquiring about it in the first place.
