At home teeth whitening systems….??


Recommended Posts

Sherri,

 

I used the Crest Whitestrips. I found it difficult to keep up with the twice a day for 14 days, and ended up missing a few. I did notice a difference, but not a huge one - and it lasted a month or so (?!). lol, that might have something to do with the fact that I missed some days tho lol.

 

I haven't used the "paint-on" whitening that they released. You put it on before you go to bed and sleep with it on, then brush it off the next morning. I think that'll be my next try though.

 

It seems that I buy so many of these products that in the long run I would have been better off doing the expensive treatment in the first place - but oh well!!!

I read in an article somewhere that all teeth whitening do a good job. The difference between at-home and at the dentist is the percentage of the active ingredient that whitens them (off hand, I don't know the chemical)....but they said that the crest strips have something like 7%, and the dentist has something like 25% of the whitening agent. They also said that name brand and generic that have the same percentage will do the same job. Not that you must buy a namebrand kind.

I could be wrong...but that is what I read...any dentists out there!?

I have used the Crest and this just reminded me that it's probably time to do it again. In my experience it lasts 2 years (I've done them twice), however I don't drink coffee or soda, so that could have something to do with it. It worked wonderfully though. Gorgeous! i actually didn't use all 14 days because my teeth got too white (think Friends), but that was nice because when I notice that they might be darkening a little I use the remainder of the box.

I use the crest brush on day stuff. I don't have it with me but it works great. i have really sensitive teeth so I found the strips to be incredibly painful. I don't even want to think about it. The brush on stuff works great. I used it once a day for 2 weeks and noticed a BIG difference.

I use Crest Whitestrips about once a year. I have fairly white teeth anyway, and I don't drink coffee and try to avoid cola so they usually stay pretty nice. But, I always notice a big difference with the Whitestrips. I have perfect strangers comment on my teeth all the time too- so they must work. One tip- avoid the Premium whitestrips- they made my teeth so sensitive I could hardly eat. I also always make sure I use Sensodyne whitening toothpaste for a couple months after I whiten.
