Hello Ladies, I have been using these strips a few times and I wanted to give a review on this. First of all this is one of the strongest strips available with a 14% peroxide in it. Crest does have a lot of types of strips and unfortunately none of them are available here in UAE. But they can be bought online. These strips comes in a box of 84 pouches but you can also buy them in 42 or 21 pouches packages.
As said these strips are super strong and if you have sensitive teeth this strip is definitely not for you unless you use a toothpaste for sensitive teeth! First time I had tried it my teeth was literally aching. I would close my mouth for the whole day for a little bit of air going into my mouth would make it ache… Ouuchhhh! So I suggest before using this to start using a special toothpaste for sensitive teeth and then use these strips.
Coming to the strip now… this strip does work and is totally worth it! 🙂 You get a sachet with 2 strips inside. 1 strip for the top row, 1 for the bottom. The strips are clear and they stay clear. The top strip is a little bigger than the bottom strip. Though lots of people complain about it slipping off I personally didn’t have any and would recommend to wipe your teeth dry and then apply it as it sticks better when the teeth are dry. To prevent your saliva from pooling inside your mouth and ruining the strip I would suggest to lie down on your back. Also the taste of the strip is really not nice so you definitely don’t want your saliva tasting that! Required time to let the strip in your mouth is 30 minutes which is really good for the result you get.
Before you use these strips you should at least brush your teeth an hour before. How to apply is super simple! Just remove the strip and apply to your teeth and fold the excess and then use your nail to make it go in between each tooth specially if you have crooked teeth so that your whole teeth can whiten up evenly. Then count down your 30 minutes and voila! 😉 Its also super easy to remove. For more results pair these strips with a whitening toothpaste. In case you teeth aches just let your teeth rest for few days and then start again.
It is said you can drink while you are using these strips but I don’t think its a good idea since it may move. I would absolutely recommend this product specially if you want super white teeth and doesn’t want to spend $$$!
Please note teeth whitening/bleaching is not recommended for kids under 16 years old and if you have Gum disease, worn enamel, cavities or exposed root you should not do teeth whitening. Also whitening strips or any other kind of whitening process may not work if you have fillings, crowns or other restorations and darkly stained teeth and if you’ve been on antibiotics like Tetracyclines it is possible that your teeth may not become white or lighter in shade. Just visit your dentist in case you are not sure.
