Review/Video: Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips


PROS: Results in just three days, whitens teeth effectively, enamel safe, cheaper than other whitening treatments, easy to use, stays on teeth

CONS:  Funny taste, expensive, leaves temporary white spots on teeth

I received my Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips for free from Influenster as part of a special program for members, and I was so excited to get them!  I had been feeling a little self-conscious about my smile, so these came at a perfect time.

I had used Whitestrips from Crest before, but never finished them because of some annoyances I had with the product.  First of all, I disliked how slippery the strips were.  They would slide around on my teeth, and I couldn't even talk without displacing them somehow.  Another thing I disliked was the packaging; the top and bottom strips used to come in two different packets, and were difficult to keep track of.

Wearing the Whitestrips... You can barely tell!
This time, Crest has reinvented the Whitestrip, and it works.  They've introduced Advanced Seal, their no-slip technology.  I don't know how they did it, but these strips stay put.  I can even drink water with them on and they don't move!  You use these strips for 30 minutes a day for 20 days in a row.  I prefer to use them before bed, because that's usually when I have half an hour to spare.  Also, it eliminates the one main problem with these Whitestrips--the temporary white spots that they leave on your teeth.  If you use the Whitestrips before bed, those spots will have disappeared by the morning!

I've been using the Whitestrips for a little over a week, and I already see incredible results! My teeth are noticeably whiter, and I'm feeling more confident about my smile.

The only major problem with these Whitestrips is how expensive they are.  I'm a fairly broke college student, so I understand that $40 can be a lot of money when you have so many other things to pay for.  If you're self-conscious about your smile and are seriously looking to whiten your teeth, though, I think it's an investment worth making.  They really do work, and are relatively inexpensive compared to many other whitening treatments!

Here's a video review of the product that shows what you get and gives more information about how to use the Whitestrips:

Crest 3D White Whitestrips retail for around $40, and can be found at stores like Target, Walmart, and Kroger across the U.S.  You can also click the links below to order the Whitestrips and other Crest 3D White products!
