The Crest white strips are a good quality product that I would reccomend to anyone who is looking to greatly whiten their teeth. They do work good, but they are expensive and they leave a funky residue on your teeth. Overall though the Pros greatly out weigh the Cons and i would reccomend this product to anyone looking to have a great smile.

It's true, everyone is looking for whiter teeth. We're looking for a fix that will somehow make our teeth whiter than they ever have been in history, and will make us (more importantly our teeth) the highlight of the night.

I am a facebook addict. I use it all the time, and I'm constantly uploading pictures, and catching up with friends. When uploading pictures of myself, I always go through and edit my pictures to whiten my teeth digitally. Since using Crest Whitestrips, I haven't had to do that anymore, instead, I'd have to whiten other's teeth! It was an amazing feeling when people around me would ask how I had gotten my teeth so white. 

I grew up with ugly teeth that I was aschamed of, and the first time I used Crest . . . my teeth were SERIOUSLY whiter in seven days. There was a major difference, in just seven days. After the initial whitening, to maintain, and slightly whiten over time, I continued to use the daily five minute whiteners.

There are some problems with this product, that's for sure. I have had an issue dealing with the smell, which really did affect how much I wanted to use this product. Another issue is that it is recommended to be used before you brush your teeth, so you have to deal with the smell of your breath as well. These strips definitely are messy, and you WILL get it on your fingers, it's impossible to put them on without it, so have a tissue ready when you use them. Also, you can't do anything while you have them in that involves your mouth. My lips would always get chapped when I used this product. Lastly, they move around a lot on your teeth.

But these problems are easily fixed. Use a tissue to wipe your hands after you put the product on . . . put some chapstick on so that you don't have chapped lips, and that also helps with the smell. I've learned that putting the bottom one on first helps a lot to make sure they stay where they belong. 

 

The product definitely does work, but it does have it's drawbacks.

Comments about Crest Whitestrips Teeth Whitening System:

Crest Whitestrips is a good product for whitening teeth. The only problem is that it leaves your teeth extremely sensitive. After using this product, my teeth were very white, though, so it did what it was supposed to do. You just might want to use a tooth sensitivity toothpaste after using Crest Whitestrips. I would recommend this product for whitening teeth.

Will never use again

Comments about Crest Whitestrips Teeth Whitening System:

I did not like these Crest whitening strips at all. I have somewhat sensitive teeth to begin with, mostly just my front teeth when they meet direct cold but these strips made it unbearable. I noticed it the very first time I used them. About halfway through the amount of time they said to leave them on for, I got sharp pains that shot through my teeth. I remember thinking it was weird but they went away right after I took the strips off. Then after about two weeks of using them, it escalated to the point where my teeth would ache all day and I could barely even eat. I would just sit with tears in my eyes because nothing would make the pain stop. I even was brushing with a special toothpaste specifically for sensitive teeth but it didn't even touch it. It took weeks for my teeth to get back to their normal state. My teeth were slightly whiter but it was not worth it for what I had to go through.

Pretty Good but Painful

Comments about Crest Whitestrips Teeth Whitening System:

Crest Whitestrips Teeth Whitening System is a product that delivers on its promises, unlike many others on the market. However, my biggest complaint is that they made my gums hurt to the point where my teeth even felt more sensitive right along the gum line.
The size of the strip was about right but just a tad on the small side. At times, I had trouble keeping them on my teeth. And when they did slip, it caused a burning sensation on my gums that was really unpleasant.
Compared with other at-home whitening products, they are on the pricier side, but definitely cheaper than a professional whitening at the dentist's office.
Overall, the results were good. I noticed that my teeth were several shades whiter after using them.

Effectiveness
This product worked! My teeth are whiter than ever!

Convenience
This is the ultimate no-hassle whitening solution. It takes very little effort to see dramatic results!

Minimal Side Effects
My gums stung during usage.

Comments about Crest Whitestrips Teeth Whitening System:

If you use these enough, you will see a difference. Not a huge one, but gradually, over time, it will make your teeth about one shade lighter.

Effectiveness
Like stated before, they do work somewhat. You would have to do it about once daily for a week or two to see a shade lighter.

Convenience
My set back on Crest White Strips is the amount of time it takes. You will have to leave them on 10+ minutes for it to take effect at all. They are not the most comfortable thing in the world either. They fit all teeth but in my case, they are a bit large and awkward in my mouth. Because of the overlap in my mouth, the product on the strips seeps out and it's not a pleasant taste.

Minimal Side Effects
For sensitive teeth, after 5 or so minutes my teeth start hurting. I cannot leave them on for the proper amount of time and cannot use them daily, or even every other day. For non-sensitive teeth, I'm sure they are just fine. Also, do not brush before you use, as you will be putting them on your teeth when they are ''bare'' and that will cause some pain.

Comments about Crest Whitestrips Teeth Whitening System:

These strips are great! Leave them on for 30 minutes and I already saw a small difference! I usually use them about twice a week and saw an even more noticeable change after about a week. They are powerful and can sometimes lead to sensitive gums but it is nothing permanent and usually wears off after a few minutes and does not cause pain. Really love using this product ! Always getting complimented on my white teeth after I use this product!

Made My Teeth Hurt Horribly

By

Comments about Crest Whitestrips Teeth Whitening System:

This product hurt my teeth so bad I was in tears. I dont know if it was eating away at my teeth or what but what I do know is that after the second time using these whitening strips my teeth started to fall apart. I used to have very nice teeth but since I am a smoker I decided I need to do a little whitening. The first time I used it I thought it did great but the second time I used it I could only have the strips on my teeth for 7 minutes before I went into tears from it hurting so bad. Even after taking off the strips they were still hurting I tried brushing my teeth and using mouth wash but the pain would not go away. The pain lasted for a bout 2 hours and that whole entire time I was in tears screaming. This product does whiten your teeth but with the price of ruining them also. I will never whiten my teeth again with over the counter products. I also have a friend of mine that has had the same problem.

Effectiveness
The only reason I give this a rating of 7 is for the fact it does whiten your teeth.

Convenience
It is easy to use and it doesnt take long at all. But I will never use them again

Minimal Side Effects
It hurt my teeth horribly. I will never use a whitening product again. I cannot believe how bad it hurt my teeth.

Comments about Crest Whitestrips Teeth Whitening System:

Crest Whitening strips are a little difficult to apply. Sometimes it feels like they don't want to stay on my teeth. They also leave a nasty taste in my mouth after using them. But, I did get whiter teeth after a few uses.

Effectiveness
I seen a whitening difference in my teeth with just a few uses.

Effective for teeth whitening

Comments about Crest Whitestrips Teeth Whitening System:

These strips definitely do make your teeth noticeably whiter. You won't see the difference after one use, but it adds up over time. They kind of make me drool while I'm wearing them, which can be messy and uncomfortable. I think the amount that comes in the box is perfect, usually I can reach a white enough point without using all of them and I can save a few strips to freshen up the whiteness later.

Tastes good, maybe not the best whitening

By 

from Kenai, AK

Comments about Crest Whitestrips Teeth Whitening System:

The time that I used the crest white strips, they did not stay in place, nor was there a significant difference in the color. I didn't notice sensititvity, as i have seen others say. I even tried later on, leavin the strips on longer and there was just not enough improvment to warrant the cost

Crest Whitestrips Teeth Whitening System - Pains to Smile

By 

from Cliffside Park, NJ

See all my reviews

Comments about Crest Whitestrips Teeth Whitening System:

I was hoping to have a bright white smile after seven days but what I ended up with was painful sensitive teeth. I never suffered from sensitive teeth until I tried Crest Whitestrips Teeth Whitening System. After two days , twice a day, the sensitivity was too much to bear. I reduced it to once a day thereafter with minor relief. My teeth appeared to have become a bit whiter after four days and twelve strips. So I am assuming had I completed the seven day treatment I would have been pleased with the results. To my dismay the sensitivity got the better of me. The strips themselves hardly stayed on the teeth for the required time and you had to always fix it back in place.

Certainly cheaper than professional teeth whitening and worth trying if you don't suffer from sensitive teeth.
