For the past couple of months, I have wanted to whiten my teeth to have pearly whites, but was hesitant to purchase white strips. I have heard positive and negative reviews about different kinds of whitening products. One day, Walgreens was having a sale on a whitening treatment, so I bought it.
Crest 3D White Whitestrips use the "classic whitestrip technology with an improved whitening formula for visibly whiter teeth." The box also says that the treatment is enamel safe and that Crest uses the same whitening ingredient as the dentsist.
This kit that I bought instructed me to use it once a day for 30 minutes for ten days. It claims to remove years of stains and has a whitening power of 2 from a scale of 5.
There are 10 applications in the box, with one upper and one lower strip. I did experience some slipping of the strips when applied, but I easily fixed them back to its position on my teeth. After the first application, I did experience some sensitivity. However, upon my second application, the sensitivity was gone. I went a few days without applying the strips because either I was exhausted from that day and did not want to apply them so late at night, or because I was lazy. I started these on April 28, and my last application was May 15, so you can see the big gap. Even with the separation of applications, I did see a difference in the color of my teeth.
The color may not be drastic and be a stark white, but that was not the look I was going for. I just wanted to have naturally white looking teeth, not fake white. So did they do the job? Yes I think so. I just wish they turned out a bit whiter.
Would I repurchase? Yes I will repurchase another Crest Whitestrips kit, but I might go for a whitening power of 3 instead.
