Tooth whitening products are popular nowadays and they offer a viable alternative to the expensive whitening treatments offered at dentists' offices. One brand that helped pioneer this type of product is Crest- one of the best- known names in dental care. And the product that started it all is **Crest Whitestrips**, a tooth whitening product from the Proctor & Gamble Company. **Health Commentary:**

Crest Whitestrips are one of the most popular among the store brand tooth whitening products. They were introduced to the public in 2001 and they have been satisfying customers ever since. They work by concentrating special whitening ingredients like peroxide directly against the teeth where they can penetrate the surface for a full thirty minutes. Repeated usage for fourteen days should result in significantly whiter teeth. Crest Whitestrips claim that these strips can be worn and used any time and that, once in place, you can go on with your normal daily routine for 30 minutes while the strips have the opportunity to work. It is true that you can do what you want, but there are certain activities that are not easy to do with one of these strips in place. I'm one of those people who has a tendency to want to move my tongue around when a have some type of dental object against my teeth and more than once, I have accidentally pushed the strips out of place. The gel helps to hold them in place but they can still be moved with little effort. Also, if you start talking with a Whitestrip in place there is a chance that some of your words will come out a little funny- like someone who has had a little too much to drink. I have found that, for best results, I try to do nothing at all when wearing Crest Whitestrips. The best thing to do is read a book. The time goes by quickly and it makes it easy to forget the strips are in place. Waiting for fourteen days is frustrating and it is possible that you may need a second treatment after the first, depending on how well you stick to your 30 minute per day schedule and how well the Whitestrips stayed in place. But the results should make you happy. I followed the advice on the package and used the upper strips twice per day first, then the lower strips twice per day for the next seven days. This is a good idea because you can compare the shade of the top teeth with the bottom. I could see a significant difference as all those years of soda pop, coffee, tea, and other staining drinks were suddenly washed away. Crest Whitestrips use the same chemicals that dentist's use to clean and whiten teeth, so they are safe if used as directed. They are designed to keep teeth white for six months after each fourteen day period of usage. They also come with a money back guarantee. In order to get the guarantee, Crest asks that you start by using the strips for the upper teeth first (twice per day for seven days) and then comparing the shade of whiteness to that of the lower teeth (I used this advice, not just for the guarantee, but also because it makes it easier to compare and visually see the difference). If you are not satisfied with the results, you can return the strips for the lower teeth back to Crest for a full refund of the purchase price. **Bottom Line:**

Overall, I am satisfied with Crest Whitestrips and I recommend buying a box for effective treatment of discolored teeth. They are not as thorough as the treatment provided by a dentist and the price is greater than that of the liquid variety. But all things considered, these strips are a good buy. They eliminate stains and return your teeth to a more youthful appearance in only two weeks if used as directed.

Good for a slightly whiter smile!

By 

from USA

Comments about Crest Premium Plus Whitestrips:

I used these strips to help whiten my teeth and they did an ok job. They did slightly whiten my teeth however the way the strips are designed endless you have perfect teeth not all of your teeth will be whitened. It also was not a dramatic whitening difference, it only slightly whitened my teeth

Effectiveness
I did notice a slightly whiter, however I did not notice a huge difference in the color. There were also parts of the teeth that the strip would not cover so those parts received no whitening at all.

Convenience
This product is super convenient! I could put the strips on walk around the house, do chores, cook supper, all with the strips on. They were fairly easy to place on my teeth it is pretty straight forward however the strips are somewhat difficult to get on if your teeth are less than perfect.

Minimal Side Effects
My teeth were super sensitive after using these strips. I even felt them begin to hurt while the strips were still on. The sensitivity did not wear off for quite a while.

Great results lots of work

By 

from USA

Comments about Crest Premium Plus Whitestrips:

The results of this product are outstanding if you use them correctly and follow directions. I like that you can get your teeth whitened from home and it's very convenient and more affordable than going to the dentist for whitening. Actually after I used this product I had a dentist appointment and my dentist thought my teeth were professionally whitened! This product is however a lot of work. You have to use the strips every single day for an extended amount of time and it's very easy to forget if you don't set reminders. Also the strips don't stick really well so they feel very slippery and sliding all over my teeth. Also the whitening gel tastes terrible and smells a little weird. If your determined to have white teeth for an affordable price and don't mind putting some extra effort and patience into it, this is the perfect product for you! I would recommend this to my friends.

Not such bright result

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Crest Premium Plus Whitestrips:

After years of nicotine and coffee I decided there was some serious yellowing to my teeth while looking at some pictures.
I decided to splurge and get the what I thought was the better of the crest whitestrips options.
The strips are kind of awkward to get on your teeth, I had a hard time with it. Then I felt like I couldn't move my lips for fear of them rubbing off my teeth.
The taste in my mouth was less then desirable, but I figured even with all that it was worth the try, if it worked.
After aweek of using the strips, I took a picture to see how my teeth were looking. From the pictures, I couldn't notice a difference, and my husband said he thought they looked a little bit whiter, but it wasn't really noticible.
I don't think the amount of effort and time and money I put into using the whitestrips was worth it.
I would suggest finding something else to try before these whitestrips.

DO NOT BUY

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Crest Premium Plus Whitestrips:

I cannot stress to you enough about how bad this product is. I know that Crest has since come out with improved versions, but this one is also still on the market, and for a more affordable price.
Pros:
The price is about the only pro I have to say about this product.

Cons:
I hated the way the strips felt on my teeth. That was if I could even get them to stay in place. They were very hard to apply and keep on, and I felt like they were sliding off my teeth the whole time.
These strips made my teeth hurt after only a few uses. I know that some of the whiteners can have that affect after use; however I have never experienced that as quickly as I did with this one.
I did not see any results at all in the amount of time Crest specifies it would take.

All in all, I would not recommend you to buy these Crest white strips. You are better off spending a little more on the improved version, and getting better results.

I was out a lot of money and STILL didn't have whiter teeth!

By 

from Forest Lake, MN

Comments about Crest Premium Plus Whitestrips:

I thought I would give this product a try. I was diligent about using the product EXACTLY as directed. I spent the time and money. And, what did I get in return... a bad taste in my mouth and pain on my sensitive teeth. The next time I ever try to whiten my teeth again, I will be spending the big bucks and doing it in the dentist's office.

Comments about Crest Premium Plus Whitestrips:

I have used this product, and I absoutly love it. I really didn't think it was going to work, I thought  I would have to go to the dentist and spend a lot of money to get my teeth nice and white, but I was wrong. I thought I would try the Crest Whitestrips, and I am glad I did, it worked quickly and really brightened my smile, and it actually lasts. I definatly recommend this product.

I love it!

Comments about Crest Premium Plus Whitestrips:

Wow! I was skeptical at first, due to trying other whitening products that failed. But I imediately saw a difference. After two weeks, my smile was whiter than I ever remember it. I have recommened this product to anyone who will listen! I even bought a pack as a Christmas present for my 16 year old daughter. Her teeth are so white now, that you can't even tell she wore braces for 4 years.

The easiest whitner out there!

By 

from Avenel, NJ

Comments about Crest Premium Plus Whitestrips:

Crest Whitestrips are the perfect compliment to the Crest toothpast family. I use them every other day as I have extremely sensitive teeth and I use pro-health toothpaste by Crest and I have to say in 5 days my teeth begin to show noticeably change. Both my fiance and my 22yr old daughter who recommended them noticed the brighter teeth. I'm about 3 shades lighter going for the bright white if I can master it for my upcoming wedding. My fiance wants to use them now as well. We are both serious tea and coffee drinkers, red wine all the stain foods which I'm noticing aren't as bad now that I'm using the Crest strips. I just love them.

Whiter Teeth in 2 weeks!

By 

from Waco, TX

Comments about Crest Premium Plus Whitestrips:

I have used these several times- and will continue to use them. They are clear so you no one will ever know that you have used these! The only thing I do have to say badly about is the taste. But once you get over that, you will use these every day until you see your results!

use the ones that dissolve in your mouth, much more convenient.

By 

from Smithtown, NY

Comments about Crest Premium Plus Whitestrips:

The dissolvable crest strips are much more convenient than the rigid ones.  You can put them in your mouth before you leave the house and take a ride in the car.  It begins to dissolve immediately and by the time you get to where you are going it has dissolved completely.  It gets a bit gunky in your mouth so its wise to bring along some paper towels to give a wipe here and there after it is dissolved.  Even if you have to stop somewhere before its completely dissolved it is barely detectable in your mouth.
