Same Enamel-Safe Ingredient That Dentists Use

Your Dentist and Crest Want to Help Keep Your Teeth Healthy. Visit your dentist regularly. Crest Whitestrips are not a substitute for regular dental care.
Use all of the upper strips first. If your teeth are not noticeably whiter, return all the lower strips for a full refund. See Package Insert for full details.
- One package containing 56 dental strips
- Coated with a gel that contains hydrogen peroxide, the same enamel-safe ingredient dentists use for teeth whitening
- Guaranteed to give you whiter teeth in just two weeks
- Each box contains 56 strips: 28 for upper teeth, 28 for lower teeth
- Clinically proven to give you whiter teeth for 12 months when worn just 30 minutes, twice a day
- They work!
First, this product really *does* whiten teeth--it's not a gimmick as some people think. (It uses a peroxide, which is probably how your dentist would do it, although this is a less concentrated form and takes two weeks.) Of course, it only whitens natural teeth, not dental work, but for most people, they should work.
Now, on to the product itself. Some people have complained about them being difficult to apply, but after the first couple strips I didn't have any problems, and even the first time I applied it I didn't fold a strip or mess up anything major. Keep in mind that some tooth sensitivity is normal; personally, mine was only mild at worst and really only noticeable right after I applied a strip, but I know some people who aren't as lucky. If this is you, using a toothpaste for sensitive teeth may help. Also keep in mind that eating, drinking, and probably talking (unless you have better luck than I) are pretty much out of the question while you're wearing these, but I simply did one application on my drive home from work and another later in the night. My only concern was that the strips, especially the top ones, are a bit short and only cover your front eight or so teeth, but for most people that shouldn't be a problem.
A year after my first use (teeth still looking good), I am currently using a generic brand--Equate, available from Wal-Mart for about $15, about $5 less than these--and have to say that I like Crest Whitestrips better because the strips are more flexible and easier to apply, and they stay in place better. The Equate ones have a bit harder plastic and tend to slide off my teeth if I open my mouth. Hardly worth it to save $5.
It is also worth noting there are two other versions of Whitestrips: Premium and Premium Plus. Both contain a more concentrated peroxide that works in less time (7 and 10 days, respectively [the 10-day version is the same as the 7-day version but includes three extra days of strips for extra whitening], as opposed to the 14 of this Classic version) but are more expensive and--based on their reviews--seem to cause more problems with sensitivity and such. Therefore, unless you're in a hurry, I think you'd be fine with these.
In summary, I am happy with this product and think that most people would be, too. Not bad for the price (certainly cheaper than a professional whitening), and they really do whiten!...more info
- No difference in teeth color
After using this product continously for 14 days, I did not see any difference in color of my teeth. $25 down the drain....more info
- The cheapest bleaching system
I first used the CREST WHITESTRIPS when one of my friends had them. The first day I used them I could see that my teeth looked a couple of shades whiter. It has been the best thing on the market as far as a bleaching system. I loved it. I not only noticed the results myself but I also had people complementing me on how white my teeth were. So I had told them about the product and now they are satisfied. The only thing that I have heard bad about them was how sensitive you teeth get after you get done using them but it usually goes away with in the hour or so. They are great!!...more info
The Crest White Strips have worked really well for me and I have nothing but good to say about them. I understand that other people have complained that they are tricky to put on and that they were painful, but I experienced neither. I found them easy to apply, I am totally able to speak while they are on (with a slight lisp!), and for me they were not painful at all. My teeth are noticeably whiter and I am very happy with the whole experience. My concern was if they were good for my teeth (I didnt want to accidentally do irreperable damage to my enamel) but a conversation with my dentist solved that completely.
I will definitely use them again if required and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others.
- Very Good!
This stuff does the job. However, you'd have to stay away from coffee or get more of this stuff as you will develop yellow teeth quite quickly with coffee. Otherwise, very good....more info
- Didn't like it-
I bought these a while back ago, I didn't like the results. I don't think they really work, they have a satisfactory guarantee, or your money back. I wasn't motivated to get my money back, only once I felt a stinging sensation, that was after I brushed my teeth "not recommended" yeah it says not to brush your teeth before you use this product. I did anyways and that's the only time I ever felt any stinging sensation. The product didn't do it's job, I don't think I'll buy anything from crest again related to whiting. I should have saved up my money and got my moneys worth, I'd advise you do the same. Just save a bit, to get better results else where....more info
- Works great!
I first used this item about 7 months ago, and my teeth are still white! The strips were not hard to use and I received great results. Everyone compliments me on how beautiful my teeth look. I would definitely recommend using this product if your looking for an easy, inexpensive product that offers long lasting and great results....more info
- An Inexpensive Way to Whiter Teeth
Crest Whitestrips are one of the most popular among the store brand tooth whitening products. They were introduced to the public in 2001 and they have been satisfying customers ever since. They work by concentrating special whitening ingredients like peroxide directly against the teeth where they can penetrate the surface for a full thirty minutes. Repeated usage for fourteen days should result in significantly whiter teeth.
Crest Whitestrips claim that these strips can be worn and used any time and that, once in place, you can go on with your normal daily routine for 30 minutes while the strips have the opportunity to work. It is true that you can do what you want, but there are certain activities that are not easy to do with one of these strips in place. I'm one of those people who has a tendency to want to move my tongue around when a have some type of dental object against my teeth and more than once, I have accidentally pushed the strips out of place. The gel helps to hold them in place but they can still be moved with little effort. Also, if you start talking with a Whitestrip in place there is a chance that some of your words will come out a little funny- like someone who has had a little too much to drink. I have found that, for best results, I try to do nothing at all when wearing Crest Whitestrips. The best thing to do is read a book. The time goes by quickly and it makes it easy to forget the strips are in place.
Waiting for fourteen days is frustrating and it is possible that you may need a second treatment after the first, depending on how well you stick to your 30 minute per day schedule and how well the Whitestrips stayed in place. But the results should make you happy. At first I avoided Crest Whitestips because of the price and because of the product itself. Spreading liquid gel on the teeth seemed much simpler than having to wear an object against one's teeth. I didn't like the idea of hassling with strips so I avoided buying Crest Whitestrips and tried the liquid variety in its various forms first. I finally gave in and purchased Crest Whitestrips because I got tired of waiting for satisfactory results. And I did get good results with these strips. I followed the advice on the package and used the upper strips twice per day first, then the lower strips twice per day for the next seven days. This is a good idea because you can compare the shade of the top teeth with the bottom, right after the upper treatment is completed. I could see a significant difference as all those years of soda pop, coffee, tea, and other staining drinks were suddenly washed away.
Crest Whitestrips use the same chemicals that dentist's use to clean and whiten teeth, so they are safe if used as directed. They are designed to keep teeth white for six months after each fourteen day period of usage. They also come with a money back guarantee. In order to get the guarantee. If you are not satisfied with the results, you can get a full refund of the purchase price provided you have followed the correct procedure for a refund.
Crest Whitestrips work well, but like other over the counter whitening products, they only work on natural tooth enamel. They will not whiten dentures, caps, crowns, or other artificial dental material. If you have teeth with artificial surfaces that are badly stained, you will need to seek the help of a dentist or other professional to get rid of the problem.
Crest Whitestrips are a little more expensive than the liquid whitening formulas but Crest Whitestrips are also more effective. I am satisfied with Crest Whitestrips and I recommend buying a box for effective treatment of discolored teeth. They are not as thorough as the treatment provided by a dentist but all things considered, these strips are a good buy. They eliminate stains and return your teeth to a more youthful appearance in only two weeks if used as directed.
- If they hurt/make your teeth sensitive
When beginning, they can make your teeth super sensitive. I recommend starting at night an hour before going to bed, that way any sensitivity has time to go away by the time you wake up the next morning. After the initial period of sensitivity, they seem to hurt less-- so I do it twice before going to bed (for 1h+), and then I don't have to deal with any discomfort while at work....more info
- No more close lipped smiles!... Yippieee!!!
This is a truly amazing product. My sister and husband have both commented on the white shade of my teeth after only 2days of uses. Thats something seeing as how the system is to be used a total of 14days! After a bad year of smoking a pack a day and my love of frappaccinos and tea, my teeth turned a dull shade of yellow. Unfortunately, they stayed that way for 6years. I'm glad I decided to shell out the price for these strips; well worth it. I've experienced only a small bit of tingling in regards to the sensitivity factor but it's well worth it for the price of being able to smile in pics and just for the heck of it, lol. My self esteem is back! Now if I could only lose this extra 15pounds.......more info
- Great product
I love this product. It is true what other say about the sensitivity. I would recommend using sensitivity toothpaste while you are using the strips, it helped for me. It made my teeth noticeably whiter. I would suggest you take a picture of yourself smiling before and after. I noticed the whiteness of my teeth when I saw a picture taken recently and I couldn't believe how nice they looked. I just had to dig up an old picture to compare and it was a big difference. After I have noticed this in the new picture, I love smiling for pictures now and showing my teeth. I was alway self conscious about it before. That alone makes it worth the price.
I was very satisfied with my results. Make sure to read all the instructions before using.
It just became a part of my bedtime routine, not a bother at all. I just put one on while I was watching my evening TV programs and just kept an eye on the clock.
Also, I recommend that after you have finished your pack that you use the Crest whitening toothpaste. It really helps to keep your teeth staying white.
Great product and it was recommended to me by my dentist.
- Talk about problems
After my braces were removed i noticed that my teeth were really disclolored. I decided to try the strips to see if they worked. After a few days, and some problems with the strips, i noticed my teeth started to look a little whiter. Then i noticed that my teeth started to ache, just like when i had braces on. I read the instruction which said that sensitivity was common and that it would go away, so i kept using the strips. However, after a few more days i couldn't stand the pain in my teeth, i couldnt eat or drink and i would wake up in the middle of the night in tears because my teeth hurt so bad. I quit using them and it took almost a week for me to be able to eat and drink normally again. After all the problems with the strips and the pain my teeth really are not significantly whiter, i think it was a waste of time....more info
- So easy!
I love this product - I just brush my teeth put on the strips and go! Honestly within two days I could already see a big difference...This has the same effect that leading teeth whiteners do...except all the fuss - no dentist visit, no brutally expensive costs.
FANTASTIC - I'm hooked!!
- great whitener at home
the reason I gave it 4 stars because I like Crest premium whitennig system better. It's more money, but it works much faster!
Easy to use and really works....more info
- Review of Crest Whitestripes
Crest Whitestrips are easy and convenient to use. I use them approximately once a week, and they help to keep my teeth a natural white color. I don't personally like my teeth to be too white, so I'm happy with the results that the strips provide....more info
- this works
This product definitely whitens teeth. The only problem I have is that is makes me drool and the strips are no long enough....more info
I went with this (14day classic) set over the premium (7-10day) set because of the milder peroxide strength and boy am I glad I did. Even with the classic set, I was getting sensitive teeth (especially the tops of the bits of the molars that get covered by the strips). As a result, instead of using the strips twice a day like you are supposed to, I only use one set of strips a day (so it will take 28days for me). So far so good - my teeth appreciate the once-a-day regimen and my teeth have been noticeably whiter even after the 3rd day. I do wish the strips for the lower teeth were wider. Highly recommended!...more info
- A far better alternative is available.
When I used these strips, I found that they were too flimsy, and therefore tended to bend back over themselves, making them difficult to apply. After they were applied to the teeth, they did not always stay in place and tended to slide around. Also, it is inconvenient to have to remove the strips, when they have done their work. For these reasons, I do not consider them to be the best alternative. A much better alternative is the dissolving whitening strips manufactured and distributed by CVS Pharmacy, Inc. These strips are less flimsy/ more firm and therefore don't stick onto themselves, they adhere to your teeth far better; AND they dissolve completely in about 5-7 minutes, leaving no messy residue or plastic film to have to discard. On size strip (larger than Crest's) fits both upper and lower teeth. The active ingredients are the same as Crest, but the cost is about half the cost of Crest. Superior to Crest in every way.
- Crest Whitestrips really work!
I am a coffee drinker so my teeth can often use whitening. Crest Whitestrips are so easy to use and they really work! One helpful hint is to have a tissue ready when you first put them on and "dab" the excess from behind your teeth onto the tissue so it doesn't go in your mouth. If you REALLY want to whiten your teeth, do the whitening five days in a row. =)...more info
I love these. I've always been self-conscious of my yellow teeth, and I've wanted to try these for a while. Someone told me they made their teeth sensitive for a long time, so I wasn't sure about them. My teeth got a little sensitive about the 8th day, so I stopped for a few days and started again, using them once a day, (which is what the package suggests). They've been fine since then. I tried a sample of Listerine White Strips before these, and they were disgusting and didn't dissolve well at all. I like these way better. My teeth are so white. I love that I don't have to feel self-conscious about them anymore. My husband noticed the difference, too....more info
if you can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen.

- They work!!
I agree with the other customers' reviews. This system does what it claims to whiter your teeth.
Listening to others' reviews, I try to be careful to put the strips into my mouth. So, I have no problem to put them in. However, it is definitely not allow you to talk freely when you have the strips in your mouth. I also don't think you can eat and drink while the strips in your mouth. I hope Crest will give some extra strips in case one mess up or break the strip unintentionally.
I also find that the strips are very small. I have small teeth but the strips are not able to cover them all. I think both the strips for upper teeth and lower teeth only design to cover the front 8 teeth both on the top and on the bottom. I am wondering what happens to my other back teeth.
Overall, I think you will get a brighter smile, but not a brighter laugh. It is because people will notice your back teeth are still look yellow. ...more info
- Too painful to use! Wish they'd bring back the night effects whitening kit on Amazon :(
I've used the Crest Night Effects whitening kit with great results before but since I couldn't find it on Amazon anymore I tried the whitening strips. OUCH!!!! I don't have sensitive teeth at all but within the first use of this product I was starting to have pain in my teeth.
I didn't want to waste my money so I continued using it as directed for a couple more days. The pain and discomfort was unbearable...I couldn't focus on anything all day due to the constant aching in my teeth. It didn't matter if I was eating or drinking anything hot or cold...my teeth just hurt constantly.
I discontinued using the product after that and threw it away. WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY - VERY DISAPPOINTING! I would not advise trying this product. Stick to using the Night Effects whitening kit if you can find it anywhere...it's a little messy but it's effective and doesn't cause tooth pain like the whitening strips seem to do. ...more info
- Bring Back, Bring Back, Bring Back My Smile to Me
Crest Whitening Strips have been clinically proven to whiten teeth and from experience, I have to say they really do! Just two weeks and my teeth were shining and white. Its almost effortless and it gives you so much more self-confidence. Have you stopped smiling? Well it's time ti whiten up that smile and to show your teeth again. Its harmless and it worked wonders for me, all I can say is you have to try this. You have nothing to lose and a bright smile to gain....more info
- It works but hurts
My teeth hurt so bad that I want to cry. I can just feel the throbbing pain at the edge of each tooth. I can't even drink without a straw because any amount of cold on my teeth is excrutiatingly painful.
I have used the whitening strips for 5 days worth now. I took 2 days off because of the pain and used 1 strip this evening and now my teeth are hurting so badly.
If you can tolerate pain then go for it because they work. But if you can't I suggest steering clear of these. I am going to discontinue use of them and get my money back. I just can't take the pain anymore. It feels like my never endings are exposed. ...more info
- My Dentist Commented!
I have used this product several times over the past few years and I love it. For an over=the-counter, inexpensive product, they really do work. Of course it will sting some people, and some will find the strips annoying, but you get used to that stuff. If you complete a whole box you will see a difference. I went to a new dentist and he said "Have your whitened your teetH?" (I am sure he could tell because the back molars would be darker), I told him I used WhiteStrips and he said, "Yes, they are great!". Use them, they work! However, if you have veneers, or anything like that they do not work. I do wish, however, that Crest had an actual tray made that would reach farther back teeth. When you smile wide, you can see a color variation between where the strips reach and do not....more info
- It works!!!!!!!!!
I've been very skeptical about products that claim to whiten your teeth. Especially because they are a bit expensive. However, after reading the reviews for this product, I decided to give it a try. I'm sure glad I tried it. I could tell my teeth were whiter from the very first use! It was a little hard to find 30 minutes twice a day for the treatment. But once I saw it was working, I MADE the time to do it. It was well worth my money. Two things to keep in mind, it can make your teeth sensitive and irritate your gums. But it goes away after treatment. Overall, I am now one happy consumer with a brighter smile!...more info
- Excellent product
Good product but have to use with caution as this could be a problem for people with broken tooth ...more info
- White and sensitive
I have been using these strips for the last two weeks, the first week was fine and I did see results within that time. I am in a bit of pain, though. It's December and the cold weather is killing my teeth. I thought I would have no problem with sensitivity as I have never experienced such a problem eating cold and hot foods, etc. I think the sensitivity will fade, but this past week I have been using only 1 strip per day and wow I am definitely noticing some constant tooth pain. I would recommend these as I think they are working well in terms of whitening, just as long as you can deal with the pain.
Also, I have only used the top strips, and I am glad as I can't imagine how bad it would be to have both my upper and lower teeth aching so much....more info
- I get compliments all the time
If you're not into paying hundreds of dollar on a teeth whitening system then this is the way to go. I've already used my first pack and I'm ready to get another one and probably another one after that. Every time I go out complete strangers will tell me "You have such pretty teeth". Even my friends are asking me did I use something on my teeth, but I just smile and say, no. I'm not a dentist or anything like it, but I guarantee that you'll be completely satisfied with this product.It's worth the money....more info
- Works Well Enough!
I have been using the whitening strips for six days now and have shown clear signs of whiter teeth. At the top of the page, there is an image that displays just how effective the strips are, however, I do not believe the results are that dramatic as of yet.
A major problem discussed in previous reviews is how badly the gums are burned while using these strips. I admit that I have had discomfort during this process and have also seen my gums tearing in between my teeth (as though your lips crack when they are dry). Thankfully, it is not crucial enough for me to discontinue using the strips and I fully intend on completing the 12 day program.
These whitening strips clearly work and are inexpensive compared to others. Again, while I have had slight discomfort, it is definitely not enough to stop me from completing the process and expecting great results. I am already smiling (with teeth) in photos-so be assured that results will be obvious in a short amount of time. Good luck!
- Starts brighter, then gets whiter
Got these for my husband. He has perfectly aligned teeth (naturally) and has never had a cavity. However, we were starting to call his teeth his "pearly yellows." I guess he drinks too much espresso.
Anyhow, we bought the classic strips because of the lower level of peroxide - he is sensitive to stronger amounts (it makes his gums hurt). Within the first 2 days we saw his teeth starting to look brighter, but not really whiter. It wasn't until around the 5th day that we could say, "wow" - this stuff is really working. He didn't even need the full 2 weeks - his teeth are quite white now. He uses the remaining strips once per week to maintain the whiteness.
- This really works
I used it for a week my teeth were so beautiful. but you have to make sure to brush your teeth though. you cant use these just alone. they are wonderful!...more info
- The best thing you can do for your smile
I bought the Crest Whitestrips when they first came out and I was extremely happy with their results. I admit, they were a little expensive at first (10 bucks more than they cost now), but well worth it. I've tried the other products like Simply White or the Crest Night Strips because they were cheaper, and they cannot even compare. It probably has to do with the direct contact of your saliva with the whitening gel. I'm really disappointed in the other products, even Crest Night Effects. The Crest Whitestrips are your safest and best bet when searching for a better, whiter smile....more info
- ouch :_(
as directed, i used the whitestrips twice a day.
i started on a saturday. at first it was tingly,
and didnt hurt much, i didnt even classify it as pain.
anyway on the third day, tuesday night, i noticed
i couldnt brush my upper gums anymore coz they hurt.
looking closer...they kinda darkened, or somehow
my gums sort of were swollen and a bit red, i cant describe it,
its not obvious from 3 feet away but looking really close
you will notice it.
it depends on your pain threshold. i never really thought of 'no pain no glory' until i tried this expensive thingy. ...more info
- Work perfectly
I've noticed yellow stains beginning on my teeth (and im only 19!), so i decided to use the product. WOW does this work. In only 2 weeks all of my friends said my teeth looked not only incredibly white..but said i should use this product LESS because they were TOO white! Now when i buy this product, i only use them for 4-6 days at a time instead of the 2 weeks and its perfect! i go through a 1 week treatment every 6 months or so and my teeth look amazing.
If your actually gonna complain, "eww this taste bad" or, "ooh my teeth are sensitive"...time to grow a pair u wimps, this is teeth whitening, not waterboarding torture, Jesus... It doesn't taste like chocolate ice cream and it doesn't feel like a nice gum massage. It does what it states it does best, and thats make teeth incredibly white!...more info
- Well, they work
First and foremost, these things deliver on their promise to make your teeth "noticeably whiter" in two weeks. I'm not going to complain about that.
However, I have noticed the following things:
-These things are insanely hard to get into your mouth the first few times. It's a shame there's no "spare" strips included, because you're likely to waste a couple. The lower strips especially are prone to getting crumpled up and ruined while trying to stick the damn thing to your teeth.
-The gel tastes terrible. I recommend brushing your teeth shortly after you remove them.
-You can't really talk, drink, eat or do anything with your mouth while they're on your teeth- even swallowing is difficult at first.
-The packaging does not stress that you need to use them TWICE A DAY. I made the mistake of using them only once a day until I luckily saw the note on the package.
But, like I said, my teeth look quite a bit better, although this isn't a substitute for brushing....more info

I bought this product for my husband but he only used for one week and refused to continue because the innerside gel make his gum hurt. Later I tried myself for a few days. For the first day, it's okay. But for the following days, it really hurt my upper gum so I stopped. We both used a few days, nonetheless we noticed a little whiter upper teeth. I guess it will whiten your teeth but if you have sensitive gum you better have the stamina to finish. ...more info
- Good Product, but strips should be longer
I've heard a lot about them on television and on the internet, but I never gave them a try. I'm one of those people who thinks that ALL producers simply come up with some new gimik to steal my hard earned money.
I finally met someone (with a great smile) that used them and she recommended them to me. Gave really high reviews about them. So, I decided to give them a try (still skeptical though. Maybe she had a great smile to begin with).
I guess I should have taken some pictures to be sure, but personally I didn't notice much difference. They were a bit whiter I think, but that could have been the lighting, or my imagination.
When I was done with the product, I still wasn't satisfied until I started getting compliments from all sorts of people. People were asking me what I did, because my teeth looked really white. Still skeptical, I ignored the first 4 people, but over 10 people can't be wrong. Bottom line, the product does work, the "constant shade" of my teeth was all in my head and came from inspecting them every day.
Product works. Even though I skipped a couple days, still seemed to work. Just don't inspect them so much every day, because since the difference is gradual, you won't notice much.
The stupid strips are TOO SHORT. What was crest thinking? I guess I just have to control my smile so that it's not too wide, because now I notice how yellow my back teeth are. Hey, I may buy 2 boxes next time and try overlapping strips. :D
Does leave your gums and teeth a bit sensitive if you apply to strips too much on the gums.
Takes a bit of getting used to, no doubt....more info
- Try This Tip for Best Results
I've read several comments by people who said they had trouble keeping the strips in place, I came up with a suggestion that should help anyone who happens to have that problem.
Before placing the whitestrips in place, gently pad a square of toilet paper or tissue to the front and back of your teeth, try to get those teeth as dry as possible. Maintain a big smile so that your teeth are showing, you want to make sure that your lips don't touch them yet. Place the whitestrips in place, one at a time, try allowing for an equal amount of strip for the front AND back of the tooth. Push it firmly in place, and use your fingernail to gently push the front of the strip into the spaces between each tooth (to ensure that the gel makes its between each tooth, and not just the front surface). I have found that by drying your teeth well, the strips won't move the slightest bit, compared to when I first tried them and they slid around a little.
The Whitestrips work well, I noticed a big difference after only five days. Although my teeth weren't that stained before, I was always a little self-conscious about smiling with my mouth open when talking to people. But now, I do it with no hesitation, and have a lot more ladies complimenting me on my smile. It's great what these little whitestrips can do for your self esteem, I'd recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat....more info
- Don't waste your money!
This is a poorly designed product. Once the strips are in your mouth, not only can you not eat, drink, or speak--you cannot even move your tongue! If it bumps the strip, the strip crinkles, and soon you only have a balled-up piece of plastic stuck to one tooth. I used over half the box, and only one time did they stay secured the full half hour they are supposed. Were my teeth whiter? No. They just caught the sun better with those little bits of clear plastic stuck in between them....more info
- *~*~*SPARKLING, SHINY TEETH!!!*~*~*
I just finished my two weeks using Crest Whitestrips. I was a little skeptical about whether it would work, but after reading the reviews I tried it. My teeth weren't really bad, but they had a bit a yellow-ish coloring and weren't the brightest. I swear I noticed a difference after 24 hours! After the first week, my teeth weren't only white, but they were also shinier. I'm so glad a spent my money & time on this whitening system!!...more info
I wasn't expecting a miracle when I bought this product, I just had extra money to do whatever with and teeth that looked "like corn" according to my sister. Well, it was like a miracle! I now have white teeth that really shows. All my friends noticed how white my teeth had gotten without me even telling them I was using a whitening product. Even at work, customers tell me I have a nice smile. Of course my teeth aren't barbie doll white, but they definitely do look like it in pictures. In fact, I was looking at old pictures and couldn't believe how yellow my teeth used to be!...more info

I concur with the rest of the reviews. They do make your teeth whiter (for me i noticed a difference after the first application). Also people stopped me and complemented me on my teeth.
However the things are very hard to put on your teeth. The top ones are easier, but the lower ones are very tiny and often slip off.
It also takes one or two applications for your mouth to get used to them. So make sure have a towel on standy if you intend to use them (they make you salivate)...more info
- Good product, good results for the money.
I'm 31 years old with fairly white teeth naturally, but I am a daily coffee/tea drinker. I've used whitening packages/trays purchased from my dentist twice, but I am honestly just as pleased with the results from the Crest Whitestrips for whitening my teeth when they begin to look a bit stained. I have very sensitive teeth/gums, so I rarely use the strips more than once a day and usually have to skip a day between applications. I also use a toothpaste (like Sensodyne) when I am whitening and this eliminates most discomfort. At this point, Whitestrips are used for "maintenance" and I have been working on the same box for at least a year! I whiten a few time every few months and this works for me. I'm sure there are many different degrees of staining/yellowness, but for mild discoloration from tea/coffee, I would definitely give these a try before an expensive trip to the dentist.
- Crest Whitestrips work great!
These made my smile blinding! I absolutely recommend them to everyone looking for a brighter smile...more info
- No Pain No Gain
I have found Crest Whitestrips of any version to work really well for me! When I got my braces off my teeth were discolored and i used Crest Whitestrips Classic to make them really white!! There was a little gum sensitivity but it wasn't TOO bad. However, now I am using Crest Whitestrips Premium and WOW by the second day it hurt my gums SO BADLY! I toughed it out and tried it the third day again, but this time i took a Q-tip and i put Vasaline carefully on JUST my gums. It made due for a protective coating and significantly reduced the pain while the Creststrips were on! However my gums are still so sore that i can't even brush my teeth...basically...my Vasaline trick works wonders BUT the Crest Whitestrips Premium are 2X stronger than the Crest Whitestrips Classic, so if your gums/teeth are sensitive I recommend getting the Classic because they really do work for me!...more info
- Works really well, my teeth are whiter
bottom line it works, use it like directed and your teeth will be a couple of shades whiter...more info
- pretty good, room for improvement
I bought this and carefully read the packet and reviews/suggestions from everyone. Before I put them on I use a toothbrush (that I've specially designated for this) to gently scrub my teeth, then carefully put them on. Immediately I start drooling so much, that I keep a bath towel under my face to collect everything! Yes, it sounds gross and it is gross. But I don't want to swallow any of that nasty taste or lose a precious whitening strip! These things make me drool like crazy and for 30 minutes I maintain the biggest smile possible with a folded over bottom lip - to keep the lower strip in place. Every few minutes I check with my fingernail to make sure the bottom strip is still against my teeth. I have had no problems with tooth sensitivity (but I don't eat a lot of cold foods), burns, or anything else. They do seem to be working. I've been doing them at night, I'll do 2 or 3 in one sitting (the manual says that's as effective). Then I'll stop for a few days. As some other people have suggested, I will probably finish this package and then continue to do it maybe once a week. I read somewhere that to appear natural, your teeth should be no whiter than the white in your eyes.
This product gets 4 stars because of all the gross drooling, I can't imagine using this product anywhere other than behind a closed and locked and mirror-less room. The drooling causes the bottom strip to move around too much. Maybe this should come with a tray to cover the strips to keep them dryer. ...more info
