I’d say use something other than Crest white strips.  I noticed some whitening, but the strips also made my teeth SUPER sensitive, and the sensitivity took a few months to wear off completely after using the white strips.  I wish I could help other than that.  I am also in need of a good teeth whitening kit, but not the one I used last time 🙁

I’m not sure what they’re called or if every office has them but my parents both got whitening kits at their dentist office that cost them $99 but they can be refilled over and over again, possibly for life, I don’t remember. Dentist kits will whiten much better than over the counter kits though and those will definitely cost much less in the long run.

I bought Crest Whitesrips Supreme Professional from my dentist’s office.  I was told they weren’t available as an OTC product, but I saw them on Amazon (I know that you can’t buy them in any retail stores).  They have 14% hydrogen peroxide compared to Crest White Strips Pro (for example) that have 6.5% hydrogen peroxide.

 

I started to use them and they seemed to be working well, but they caused EXTREME sensitivity (like shooting pain through my teeth into my gums).  So I stopped using them and have been using toothpaste to help with sensitivity before I start using them again.  If your teeth are sensitive, you may want to try a product with a lower % of hydrogen peroxide to initially try.

Good luck!

I like Rembrandt’s products. I’ve used their whitening strips twice before and liked my results. They didn’t make my teeth really sensitive, but my gums didn’t like it. I have a small mouth and teeth though, so it was hard to not lay the strips over my gums.

If you really want to whiten your teeth, I’d suggest getting a whitening toothpaste and mouthwash, and flossing daily, on top of whatever whitening kit you get.

I love crest whitening strips!  So does fi.  They make my teeth more sensitive than his (it really varies) but it is worth it (it isn’t that bad!)  I have been using them for about 3 years and regularly get compliments on how white my teeth are!  (I must say, however, that I don’t drink coffee or smoke so that helps!)

I have used the regular Crest white strips and think they are fabulous. I noticed improvement right away. I have had zero sensitivity but it really just depends on your teeth. Everyone is different, i have also heard that the target brand is just as good. Im going to check that one one. Also, there are soo many coupons floating around for Crest so try that!

I have my trays in with the hydrogen peroxide right now.  White strips did not work very well for me, so I spent $400 at the dentist for the trays and solution.  It isn’t working well either.  I wonder how that UV light thing you see at the mall works.

My dentist told me that Crest White Strips work the best

I did the Zoom Whitening at the dentist & it whitened them up!! Granted, it did take them back down a couple shades after it was done. But they gave me the take home whitening kit & it’s done great!! I love it! I would look into what the dentist’s have for take him kits.

GoSmile! Can find it at Sephora and it is a bit pricier than others, but it’s worth it for the convenience, speed and results. Also, no sensitivity like the strips and gels.

I did laser whitening about 18 months ago and bought a GoSmile on sale a few days ago and will touch about about 2 weeks before the wedding.

The key to any whitening system is to not eat or drink dark-colored things a few hours after whitening (if laser, then stay away for a few days) as your teeth are made slightly porous from the bleaching, so it’ll absorb colors easier.
