I havent but i’ve used the original and i noticed a little bit of a difference, Fiance and i were both going to try the 3D whitstrips but i just visited the dentist on Friday (stupid wisdom teeth) and they have a at home whitening system for $99.00. (which isnt much more than the whitestrips) Its molded trays to fit your teeth and comes with four tubes of bleach…enough for one full session and then if i wanted to do touch ups in the future the tubes are on $11.00…its not much more expensive than the whitestrips and in the long run would be cheaper because i will have the trays forever. I would suggest asking your dentist if they have anything like that. i think they are a little more effective than the whitestrips but i’ve heard good things about 3d whitestrips….doesnt hurt to try.

We are both actually using those right now. We’ve only been using them for 2 days, but since the last time I’ve used White strips, they’ve changed a lot! The strips are thicker and not as slimy as they used to be. They stay on the teeth REALLY well, almost to the point where it’s hard to get them off. And they do leave some of the whitening gunk stuck to your teeth, but once you swish around some water for 30 seconds it comes off. I’m liking them so far!

I just finished the 14 day supply and the results are definitely noticeable. I wouldn’t compare them to professional though. I’ve never had them done professionally, but I’ve seen people that have had the real thing and it’s not even close. I am a coffee drinker and I’ll have the occasional red wine and soda, so maybe my results aren’t typical. I personally would have to do at least another 2 weeks if not more to get the results that I want. Hope this helps!

I really want to try them but we weren’t sure how far in advance to bother with it.

I used the original ones and they permanently discolored my teeth.  🙁

I haven’t used that 3D version yet, but i recently purchased the Crest 14-day whitening kit from Costco for $40, it has whitening strips and maintenance strips, much cheaper than stores like Walgreens and Target.

get it from costo if you need it.

I used them for my wedding.  I got a deal on them due to 2 $10 off coupons and a sale, so I got a box for like $18.  I bought them a few months before my wedding and tried them out for a few days and definitely noticed a difference.  I then saved the rest for the month leading up to the wedding.  I got the results I expected considering I mainly drink only coffee and tea and I smoke, so they weren’t bleach white at the top that is hidden by my lips, but the part that show more often were very white.

I think everyone’s teeth are different.  I used the whole package, and only saw a small difference.  But, my fiance’s teeth (which were more stained than mine) definitely got whiter from using them (and he didn’t even finish the whole pack!)  Also, my sister has used them several times, and her teeth are VERY white because of it.

I haven’t tried the ones you mentioned but I’ve compared several different brands (rembrandt, crest, store brands) and I noticed the most difference with crest. Crest was easier to use, less messy, and had the overall best effects. I don’t drink coffee, red wine, or smoke, so I surprised to see much of a difference at all.
