Yesterday we talked about the new at-home teeth whitening product Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips that promise a whiter, brighter smile in just two hours. So, do they actually work? Take a look at the picture above to see my partner’s smile before using the new whitestrips and after.
As you can tell from the picture, there is a subtle difference in his smile after using the new whitestrips. For the most part, the changes are subtle; the areas of mild yellowing he had going on near his gums have been lightened, but is still there nonetheless. The most drastic change is in his front teeth, which I expected regardless of the fact that the whitestrips do reach to the side teeth.
The process of using the strips is quite easy. Each package of Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips comes with four treatments and each treatment includes a strip for the top teeth and another for the bottom teeth. All you have to do is peel each strip away from the packaging and they attach easily to your teeth, able to bend and contour to your mouth and each tooth’s unique shape.
While in use and doing their teeth-whitening thing, they can be a little tough to get used to. Who is really used to having their teeth wrapped in plastic strips, anyway? My partner had a slight sensitivity issue a few minutes after he had placed the strips onto his teeth, saying that it felt like he had a cavity. Luckily, that not-so-great feeling subsided as he became used to having the strips on. Removing them is even easier than putting them on; just peel them off your teeth, rinse your mouth with water to remove any excess gel that may have been left on your teeth from the strips and look at your moderately brighter smile!
What was really surprising was that immediately after he removed the whitestrips from his teeth, we noticed the subtle changes in his front teeth and along his gum line. The outcome was just that–subtle. However, a day after the treatment, his teeth have gotten even brighter, which is pretty awesome! Also, the information that comes with this product warns that people may experience teeth sensitivity for up to two to three days after a treatment. This has not applied to us as my partner said his teeth do not feel any more sensitive than normal, but if you already have sensitive teeth, this is something you want to keep in mind.
Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips aren’t going to give you the super white smile we have all lusted after while browsing through magazines (those pictures are photoshopped anyway), but they will give your teeth a substantial pick-me-up.
Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips are currently available at drugstores and mass retailers nationwide. Each package is $54.99 and contains four whitening doses. This may not seem like a lot, but one box will last you an entire year as each treatment lasts for three months! To try them out for yourself, be sure to advantage of this $7-off coupon!
Now that we have had the opportunity to try out the new Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips, now it’s your turn and thanks to One2One Network and Crest, we are able to give one lucky Woman Tribune reader a package of the new whitening strips to try for themselves.
