This review is from: Crest 3D White Luxe Whitestrips Professional Effects - Teeth Whitening Kit 20 Treatments (Health and Beauty)
To start - I have worked in dentist offices for a few years, and a couple of my closest friends are top notch dentists. My teeth have always been white, just not white enough for my taste. I like to have a smile that pops. I have had professional whitening done (Britesmile), and these strips are great for maintaining my whiteness. Even if you haven't had that, these should work well for you. Keep in mind that I don't smoke, and I never drink coffee, tea, or colored drinks. If you're someone who always drinks java or things like it, you might not keep your results very long - as anything that can stain a white T-shirt will stain your teeth (but if you brush your teeth a least 2x a day you should be okay;-). The adhesive nature of the strips are great and such an improvement from the previous whitestrips. First and foremost, the most important thing is to make sure your mouth is healthy all together because one can have very white teeth but have underlying issues with gums and decay. If your teeth are particularly sensitive, you might get an occasional "zinger" when whitening, or your teeth might become more sensitized throughout your whitening process. If this is the case, definitely use a toothpaste like Sensodyne - that should greatly help you. I recommend to apply the strips at least twenty minutes after brushing. I know everyone has different results, but overall you should see improvement. If you're someone with white teeth to begin with, you might get a shade or two lighter, but if your teeth are off white you could be lightened several shades. Another little piece of advice - chew gum (sugar-free of course). Funny thing - for as long as I know every time I see my friends (the dentists) they are always chewing gum in and out of the office. I prefer Orbit or Trident. The action of chewing gum can greatly help your teeth because of the added flow of saliva, which helps inhibit tooth decay. I wish everyone good luck and a happy mouth!
