Crest 3D Whitening Really Works!!!

Recommended Posts


Oh, I forgot to add (for those with sensitive teeth), get a tooth paste (sensodine etc) when you're doing this.  Your teeth will be sensative for the first couple of days.  And you do not have to finish the whole pack of strips. Just do it to a point where you are happy with the whitness of your teeth :) ... speaking from experience. And don't sell your self short on the 5 minute strips. In frank words - they suck.

The store bought are good too, but it takes longer.

Nothing worse then not having that perfect pearly white smile on your wedding day :)...

Hey Ladies, Just wanted to add some info to this thread, I am a Dental Hygienist, so this is what I do all day long, remember even in the same profession everyone has different opinions especially on elective procedures doesn't necessarily mean one is right or one is wrong so here is my OPINION

 

First thing First never ever buy those off the wall whitening products you may see on tv, like the $20 UV light or God forbid, those setups in the tanning salons or mall!

 

Crest White Strips are Great! Our practice highly recommends them, they are just as good as the Custom Tray Bleaching, they are just not as high of a concentration of the bleaching agent, however the custom trays are actually fitted to your mouth so you will get into the "hard to reach" in between parts of your teeth better than the strips. Zoom/ Zoom2 Whitening, this is basically just the I'm to lazy to wear trays or need it done tomorrow method, unless I was given a deal on it, I wouldn't pay the amount unless I needed it done ASAP.

 

As for sensitivity its completely normal, the best thing you can do is use a sensitivity toothpaste at least for a couple days before you start ( at least a week or two for Zoom), it takes sensitivty toothpaste two weeks to work and also you need to be using it for the full two minutes while brushing or it isn't going to work either, the bleach can make your gums sensitive will go away though...absolutely do not stop flossing! IMO best senitivity toothpaste are sensodyne or crest sensitivity, if one doesn't work for you the other should ( they work in 2 different ways)

 

Up Keep: No matter what the box says make sure you brush and floss before using....whitening doesn't "fade" its your daily habits that will affect the color of your teeth, commonsense stuff like smoking, coffee, tea, drk cola also remember red wines, blueberries, red sauce...just drink through a straw and you will be fine!

Thank you for this!  I have extremely sensitive teeth but want to have them whiter for the wedding.  I will try using the sensitive toothpaste a few weeks before and hopefully that will work!! Last time I tried Crest white strips I wanted to pull my teeth out it hurt so bad!

Thanks for the info!  I am actually getting braces on soon (will be coming off about 2 months before our wedding!) So I want to whiten my teeth but I don't know if I should try and do this BEFORE I get the braces on, or after, or both.  I kinda want my teeth whiter now for my sister's wedding, and then again right before my own.  My teeth are sensitive so I don't want to screw up the braces by using white strips.  Any advice?  I am getting ibraces that go on behind my teeth so you can't see them.  Anyone know if you can whiten with braces on?  I may just have to ask my dentist, I'm just afraid he'll tell me not to use them! :)

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
