Works good, but not as good as I'd hoped

I read tons of reviews on Crest Whitestrips Supreme Professional Strength before I purchased them from Amazon.  I read, literally, hundreds of reviews on this product because I have tried SO many over the counter teeth whitening products, and I am searching for something that REALLY works.

I have been using Crest Whitestrips Supreme for just over 2 weeks, and I will give you my scoop.  To begin, be careful of tooth sensitivity, but do not let reviews that claim horrible pain stop you!  These strips do not bother me any more than any other strips I've tried.  I bought a tube of toothpaste for sensitive teeth to prepare myself.  I started using it about a week before using the strips, and have continued to use it while using the strips.  I have little to no discomfort.  First, I was using them once a day (30 minutes) because I read they are so strong.  That did not bother my teeth.  The first day I had minor, generalized tooth sensitivity, but that went away.  After a few days, I decided to try it twice a day, just to see what it would do.  The first time I used it twice a day, I did it once in the morning and once in the evening.  I eventually upgraded to using it twice in a row (for an hour) which does cause me tooth sensitivity, but it is bearable.  I don't use it twice in a row everyday.  I took everyone's advice and I do not brush my teeth before using the strips.  Brushing my teeth after works just fine for me.  When I feel like I need to get any build-up/grime off my teeth before I use the strips, I take a q-tip and dampen it and just gently rub that over my teeth.  That works to get them clean without causing any irritation, and it does not make them sensitive to the strips.

As for sickness from the strips, I do not swallow when I have the strips in.  It's a pain (annoying), but it works as I don't swallow any of the peroxide.  When too much saliva builds up, I gently drain it from my mouth over the sink (yuck! but it works).  As for saliva build up making it difficult to keep the strips in place, this is true.  That can become a challenge.

Now to the real deal!! Do they work? Yes, they do work.  It took me about 3-4 days to see a difference (I honestly forget exactly how long).  The results were slower and not as good as I was hoping for.  After reading so many great reviews, I was hoping to use half the strips and save the other half, because my teeth would be so white I would be able to save them.  I have been using them for 15 days, and there **really are** noticeable results, but I am about to start the second half of the strips because my teeth are not to my desired whiteness.

To conclude, be careful about tooth sensitivity but don't let that scare you away from trying this.  Just use sensitive teeth toothpaste, and brush your teeth after using the strips.  Don't swallow the peroxide!  Last but not least, these DO produce results!!!  These do work better than any other whitening strips I've tried.  I just wish they would apply Advance Seal technology to these, that would be fantastic.  I will update my review when I am finished using the strips to let you know if I've reached my desired whiteness.

Update 12/2/10:  I just finished off the box of whitening strips this morning.  My teeth are more white than they were when I wrote my previous review.  I'm more pleased with the whitening now, but I am still sad to say that I didn't quite reach my desired whiteness.  However, I am a daily coffee drinker, so if someone doesn't smoke or drink coffee, etc., these may be more effective.  Although I didn't reach my desired shade, these strips do work better than any other whitening strips I've tried (and that's quite a few!).  I do recommend these strips even though they are pricey.

I have found that Crest Whitestrips were very effective at whitening my teeth.  I could see the strips working as I used them and it was very exciting.  The strips were easy to place on teeth, although taking the backing off could be a bit frustrating.  They were not terribly annoying on my teeth and I wore them as I watched tv. I found myself forgetting that they were even on my teeth.  I was very pleased with the difference in color I saw with my teeth.  The downside for me was that my teeth were extremely sensitive to the strips.  It did not bother me much when they were on but for the rest of the day my teeth were sore and sensitive.  I did not notice the sensitivity every day but it was a bit painful at times.  I ws pleased with the whitening but the teeth sensitivity issues I had almost made it not worth it for me to wear them.  I would probably use them again but maybe not as often and stretch them over a longer period of time to help my sensitivity.

      Comments about Crest Whitestrips:

      The old school crest whitening strips were the best, but they just don't make them like they used to. I tried these ones 1 per day for a week or 2 and haven't noticed too much of a difference. The original whitening strips worked so well that they would make my teeth really sensitive and people would notice within a few days that my teeth looked whiter!

      These definitely do the job of whitening. Only downfall is that it made my teeth so sensitive I had to stop using them.

          My teeth were a nuisance, I remember one occasion when I was competing for Mr.United States International University, I used it and my breath was sweet,all over sudden every student asked me what's the formula and I shared with them after using the whitener my image transformed like a flash of lightening.

            I purchased this product because I wanted to whiten my teeth and a friend told me to try these. I was a little apprehensive because of the price and I had tried other teeth whitening products that didn't work. I was surprised how easy the strips were to apply. I really could tell the difference after a couple of weeks. My teeth looked a couple shades lighter already! Love it. My teeth feel fresh and clean. I recommend this product to everyone looking for a easy way to whiten your teeth with great results.

            Comments about Crest Whitestrips:

            My teeth are really sensitive, so this particular Crest Whitestrips product made my gums and teeth really sore. This is a shame because I find that Crest Whitestrip products really do have fast and clean results. If your teeth aren't super sensitive like mine are, then definitely go for it!

            Comments about Crest Whitestrips:

            The first time I used this product was from a free sample I got from the mail. I used this product for about a month, then I ran out of stock. I then decided to buy a new pack because of the scent and its effectiveness in keeping my teeth white and clean. You need patience and consistency in using this product before you can see some good results. I use to suffer from some dental problems before using this product, but now my teeth looks and feel healthy. For some time now my dentist has been satisfy with the looks of my teeth. I do not have to go for regular dental check ups like I use to go. My only concern is the price, I wish it could be cheaper than what it cost.

            Effectiveness
            I have tried several teeth whitening products, but so farvthis isvthe best in have used.

            Minimal Side Effects
            So far I have not experinced any side effect, but you never can tell. I use to have a lot of problems with my teeth, but for quite a while now my dentist visits have been ok.
