5.0 out of 5 stars Obvious whitening but watch for sensitivity, April 22, 2010
This review is from: Crest 3D White Whitestrips Professional Effects - Teeth Whitening Kit 20 Treatments (Packaging May Vary) (Health and Beauty)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The package claims that you can see visible whitening after only 3 days. This claim is true. I've never whitened my teeth before but they weren't too yellow to begin with and I noticed the difference after 3 days exactly. However, I also have sensitive teeth and by the third day, the strips had increased their sensitivity. The instructions say that if your teeth are sensitive, start using the strips every other day (instead of every day), so that's what I did. The sensitivity stopped immediately after skipping a day. I used the rest of the package in a similar manner: using the strips every other day, sometimes using them two days in a row. The whitening continued just fine using this method. My teeth are extremely clean looking now, but not that fluorescent look some people get with over-whitening. They just look pretty and clean.

A few notes on usage. The strips are easy to apply, especially if you follow the instructions and put the bottom one on first. I definitely recommend, as the package says, to use them BEFORE you brush your teeth. The instructions say it will reduce tooth sensitivity but there's also another benefit: if you use them daily before you brush your teeth, you won't forget to do it AND you can brush off the gooey stuff that the strips leave behind on your teeth. Also, the strips are EXTREMELY sticky. They won't come off accidentally; they stay on securely. They are comfortable to wear. When you pull them off, make sure your fingers are dry so you can get a good grip to pull off the strip.

for the sensitivity, try using sensodyne. Not sure what it does but my aunt (dental hygienist) recommended and it takes care of the increased sensitivity

Not for me. I used these once, three days ago, and I still cannot drink water without sever pain. I put synsodyne on the bottom gums (the part that was sensitive) and it was less painful for about 15 minutes. If this continues I'm going to have to seek medical help because I can't move my mouth to talk or eat or drink without sever pain.

You are suppose to use them every other day to avoid the sensitivity.
I only had sensitivity, when I used CVS brand....and those, were returned for a refund.
