    Default Do Crest White Strips work?

    I heard guys on this board mentionning tham a couple of times so got my boyfriend to get me some for Christmas. He got the Premium kind for me. Anyway I used them Christmas Eve night, twice in Christmas Day and this morning (Boxing Day) and I think I might be seeing a difference.

    But... is it just a placebo? I know loads of the mouth-guard type bleaching treatments really just make your gums more red so that your teeth look whiter in comparison but Crest White Strips don't actually cover your gums, so surely they must actualy be working on the teeth?

    Has anyone got any experience of using them?

    Or any other bleaching treatments you have tried?

    they work for some, and they don't work for some.

    apparently goSmile works really well, but it is more expensive.

    I've tried Az White Strips (I don't know in what countries they are available) and I'm 100% satisfied --> see?
    I do it once a year.

    No the result is not a placebo, and yes they work only on the teeth, but - most important part - without damaging their surface, unlike other more aggressive treatments.

    These strips only work on natural teeth, so make sure you don't have fillings in your teeth otherwise you'll end up with leopard teeth

    If you have any particular questions feel free to ask

    Mine were already white too - I don't smoke or drink a lot of coffee -, in fact after the first week or something they wouldn't get any whiter...I'm thinking that maybe next time I use them, instead of using all the strips I can save a few and use them sometime later for a quick fix.

    I used Crest Night Effects and I didn't notice any difference AT ALL.

    I was a non believer until my nephew used them! Shit, it was amazing what they did for his teeth!!! I'm sure they don't work the same for everyone, though.

    I heard that when some people did them, they had painful tooth sensitivity for a week or so afterwards... any thoughts on that?

    I tried them for a little while. I noticed no difference, but I did get that tooth sensitivity. It was horrible, I have never had problems with sensitive teeth before I used them. It went away after a few days, but I wasn't willing to start using them again.

    Also, if you have a smile that shows a ton of your teeth, you could end up with 4 to 6 super white teeth in the front, but no change in the back to side teeth, because the stripes aren't that long. This has happened to a few of my friends and it's really unfortunate because the bleached teeth make the discoloration of the others even more obvious.

    Everyone I've talked to has said there is some minimal discomfort/tenderness after using them but it's not bad enough to discourage them from doing it.

    I don't suffer from tooth sensitivity on a regular basis, but it did happen during the 2 weeks I was using the strips.
    Nothing major though, not bad enough to make me interrupt the treatment or discourage me from doing again in the future.
    And it stopped anyway as soon as the treatment was over.

    Hmmm, I've done four treatments and definately found some tooth sensitivity yesterday - (like nothing I've ever felt before - VERY PAINFUL!!!), so Im taking a break for a couple of days then trying them again. They do, so far, appears to be working!

    I have the new renewal ones, they're amazing. I only do 1 strip evey 2 days because they make my teeth hurt, but I've still seen great results.
