I’m going to use the Crest White Strips. My dentist recommends them. I don’t like the severe tooth sensitivty that comes along with professional laser light whitening, nor do I like the cost. Those bleach trays suck in my opinion. I don’t want to sleep with all the gooey junk in my mouth.  I think that strips will be just fine for me.  Good luck to you.

I am! I’m using the Rembrant sensitive formula. I have sensitive teeth, so it isn’t as harsh. They’ve worked really well in the past!

I think I’m just going to use some leftover Crest Whitestrips I have from last time.  I stopped because of the sensitivity, but I figure a couple strips right before the wedding won’t hurt.

I have whitening toothpaste and mouthwash but I’m not 100% sure if they actually work.

I have some Crest White stripes that I’m going to use for a couple weeks before the ceremony. Not sure how much good it will do, but I already had them so I figure I might as well use them.

I am going to use the Crest Vivid White strips (the highest level whitening ones).  I have had luck with them in the past, and the cost is okay.

My teeth get really sensative too – so husband and I used Crest white strips for about 2 months prior & they worked GREAT & no sensativity!

I just have those strips from the teeth section at Target (Crest or whatever).  One box lasts me FOREVER because after about 2-3 days my teeth get too sensitive. I’ll probably do the strips for a few days the week of my wedding.

I had mine professionally whitened a while ago. Yeah, my teeth were sensitive for a few days and it was crappy. Whatever, I took a Tylenol and used some Sensodyne. But I’ve found that the results are thes best, longest lasting and for the amount of money that I would spend on regular upkeep with Crest white strips (I drink too much coffee and work in the wine indutry so my teeth take a definite colour beating) it’s a better investment. I didn’t like they way that the strips slid around in my mouth and I ended up being able to taste the goopy stuff on them all the time. Just a bad texture/pita as far as I’m concerned.

Currently I’m usuing the Crest Vivid White 3D tooth paste, and when it gets closer to the date, I will talk to my dentist and see what he recommends. I’ll probably end up with Crest white strips!

I am just using the Crest Vivid White 3D tooth paste. I tried the Crest white strips but couldn’t even get them on before I gaged them off. Icky tasting and can’t handle that on my teeth

I have super sensitive teeth so at the recomendation of my dentist I use Sensodyne toothpaste with extra whitening and the Crest 3D Whitestrips Gental Routine.  It’s working really well.  My teeth are whiter and I haven’t had sensitivity issues.  Prior to this I used the Crest 3D whitening toothpaste and my lower teeth got super sensitive, to the point that I didn’t want my upper teeth to touch my lower teeth.

I am using Arm and Hammer Whitening Booster. I love it! My teeth slowly whiten and they look great already! Being an ex smoker, I need some white teeth.
