You can go to this blog, Tooth Bleaching at Home, for many articles about the facts and fitoicn about tooth whitening products. I happened to be looking for a reliable and affordable home tooth whitening product, but had a lot of doubts about the risks involved. You simply have to read the article first to help you find the right product that suits your budget and time.

Crest classic white strips worked perfectly for me. I left them in longer then specified to make sure I would get great white teeth as wanted. It comes with a reasonable amount of strips. It was differently one of the most convenient products, as you can still speak with it in and do most activities. At the end of my treatment I was getting great feedback from friends, one person just stared at me and randomly said your teeth are so white in the most unexpected tone. Differently recommend!

I am 49yrs old and my yellow-ish teeth really bother me. A woman at work with pearly white teeth told me that she uses whitestrips and were amazing. After seeing her teeth and hearing the reasonable price, I bough the classic crest white strips (14 days, half an hour per day).

I have been using the whitestips for 8 days and do notice a difference although not an amazing difference. I am a little disappointed as I was hoping to get pearly white teeth but I guess it doesn't work for everyone.
As to pain, I didn't feel any sharp pains in my gums or teeth just a dull pain (which is very bearable - just a little uncomfortable).

I bought my strips on ebay. I only received 14 individual strip packets without a box so I was not able to see the expiry date. I may not being seeing amazing results because they could have expired.... That is the risk of buying on ebay I guess!!

I found these crest classic strips great!! I was recomended them by a friend. Her teeth were looking great so I thought I'd give them a try. No I have recomended them to family and friends and everyone's getting good results for a good price. I did recieve pain from the strips at first but after using them a few times it's been fine :-)

I am 58 years old and have crowns at the front of my mouth - I tried this product as other dental proceedures seem so expensive - I have only used them for 3 days and already notice a difference - I use the Crest advance seal professional effects - I think I will only have to use every other day and then taper down to once a week - so this is economical. I have had no sensitivity and recommend this product.

Honestly, they are a pain. They only covered the front teeth and not all of my uppers. There was no way to cover the canine and so they looked yellow compared to my other teeth. The Hydrogen Peroxide content is 6% which is the most recommended by the Dental Association for consumer use. The $25.00 cost was way too much for a product that I can purchase over the counter for $0.98 cents.
I now rinse my teeth with the liquid 98 cents hydrogen peroxide three times a week while in the shower and my teeth have never looked better. They are so white, that I have had others comment about them. The concentration of the over-the-counter liquid is 3%, so the safety factor is greatly improved and my teeth no longer get sensitive.
I say, why bother with Whitestrips when I can get great looking teeth for a fraction of the cost, better results and with less hassle.

I love these strips. Results are shown within a few days. If you've never used strips before then there may be some sensitivity but it's not that bad. I'm back to using them again and I have no pain, probably because my teeth have a tolerance for the gel. It's a product worth buying.

I've used the whitestrips and love the results. As a redhead, no one needs them more. BUT.... The oh so ridiculous ads showing models with teeth already snowy white and wanting or thinking they need to whiten are really getting on my nerves. Why not show real paople with normal teeth that really need these?

Just bought these a few days ago, and my teeth have never looked better. I have had no pain problems at all, and my teeth actually look white now! I've always had a yellow tint on my teeth even though I brush twice a day. These white strips are a lifesaver.

Used my first box just like the directions say, had great results.
Bought a second box and use them once a week to maintain the look.
Get great comments all the time about how good my teeth look.
Love the classics, too bad Wal-Mart stopped stocking them, I'll just have to buy them elsewhere.

These strips certainly made my teeth brighter, but I got a bit scared when my front bottom teeth started twinging with a sharp pain. After reading that this pain is somewhat normal, I decided to continue using the strips (I handle pain extremely well). I would advise these to those who want whiter teeth, but do not want to spend tons of money or expect a complete 180 degree turnaround.

this product is absolutly amazing. I noticed my teeth were whiter an brighter after the first day. Im on my 6th day and my smile has never been brighter. I constantly get compliments from my friends and family. Iv experianced no pain. They're kind of annoying when you try and have a conversation but thats expected. I am also using Rembrandt whitening toothpaste and it works fabulously aswell.

i use my whitestrips about once per week now, and my teeth are still white. before this summer my dentist has told me that my improper brushing (:P) has caused staining, and ive tried dental whitenening, but it is very expensive. one day this summer i walked pass whitening strips and bought the cheapest box which is the crest classic whitestrips, and i saw my teeth get whiter in just 4 days! this is magical, affordable, and definitely worth it! now i receive compliments on my white teeth all the time :) hoorayyy.

ps i haven't felt any sensitivity of any sort on mu teeth nor my gums although many people have reported them. i guess it's just a little different for everyone! :)

I got the crest classic when i was on holidays abroad as you cannot purchase them in Ireland..does any one know an affordable shipping website?? Couldnt use them for the full 14 days as they made my teeth incredibly sensitive. However, after the third day i noticed a big differance so i just use 2 strips every other week and get no pain. Im constantly getting complements on my whiter teeth so fabulous product .

i have been using the crest white strips classic for 4 days and i ve seen my teeth get whiter! it does hurt my gum a bit when i put them on though but only for a couple of minutes (its tolerable). and in the beginning they were hard to put on but i got used to it by now! i try to spend the 30 minutes watching tv or on my laptop (talking to someone moves the stripes a lot and it gets annoying). So ya i recommend buying this product!

I'm not sure when these are supposed to kick in, but I've seen a slight diffrence and I'm on my 7th day. I'm hoping they work good by the 14th application. I forgot to do it one day, so I used it 4 times the next day, and my teeth were very sensitive for about 48 hours, but sensitive teeth toothpaste lessens the pain. These were only $20, which is cheap because the stronger kind is $35, which my mom wouldn't let me get. So, I'm crossing my fingers that it next week they'll be gleaming. I also use listerine whitening/strengthing rinse, and maxwhite toothpaste , which I'm hoping will polish my teeth after the whitening strips, I don't think the whitening will last the advertised 12 months, unless I give up on soda and coffee. i'm planning on redoing after 6 months, maybe trying the pro effects or premium plus next time, unless this works good.

I don't know how well they work because I wasn't able to get past the first night. They make your teeth hurt like hell! It's extreme pain. I woke up in the morning and was in agony. I could barely brush my teeth without my eyes tearing up. It's now 9pm and I still havn't eaten or drank anything today. And I have never considered myself to have sensitive teeth. My recomendation, maybe only use it for half the directed time to measure the pain to ensue.

I have been using Crest whitestrips for a week now and I'm really disappointed with the results. I am on my 8th day and have the strips on as I type. I'm lucky because my teeth are already quite white but my canines are completely yellow. Also, the bottom half of my bottom teeth are yellow. There has been no change whatsoever. I'm hoping it's just slow to kick in? However, it seems everyone else reviewing them has had visible results after just a few days....ah well :-(

I'm 62 and have seen my teeth discolor (yellow) over the years. I am now getting another crown on one of my teeth that will show when I smile, which is quite often. I have discussed whitening with my dentist but because I have a crown on one of my front teeth I have been hesitant to try whitening at my dentists office for fear that my teeth may get whiter than the crown and look terrible (he apparently uses a 35% solution). He suggested I try strips (I choose Crest Classic) and go slowly because I know the crown cannot be lightened. I noticed a lightening of my teeth after only 4 days. I have been using them daily (almost daily) for 3 weeks now and my dentist says my teeth are an A3 compared to my crown @ A2. I'll keep going and maybe achieve an A2. Too date I have experianced no pain, sensivity or soreness. Good News!

I would definitely recommend these. I have always had relatively white teeth, but I had braces for a few years, and when I got them off finally, my teeth looked a little bit spotted. I picked these up for 20 bucks and am very satisfied with the results. I didn't really notice the difference that much myself, but that's from seeing the gradual change in the mirror everyday. Suddenly I was constantly getting compliments on my white teeth, which is a very nice feeling. There is sometimes a bit of sensitivity and discomfort, but it is well worth it.

i like these. my teeth become ultra-sensitive to them though. so i can't do 2x/day everyday. maybe 1x/day and sometimes 2x/day.

i began noticing a difference before the 4th day and i still see changes even though i may not use it 2x a day, or some day not at all.

like i said sensitivity is a concern, but if you take a break it will go away. I got my for $19 at walmart, i think there is a coupon on the crest site too. plus, there was a $7 off my next purchase!

i am not sure the more pricey crest strips are worth it, because this does a really good job! i

i don't know how long it will last, but it seems to be worth the purchase price. especially if you don't want to pay for dentist professional whitening.

It's difficult to use this product the number of days recommended secondary to the immediate gum and tooth sensitivity I experience. Flouride gel helps lessen the sensitivity as does sensodyne toothpaste, but not the apprehension.
I still haven't used more than three strips as a result to truly decide if this works for me or not..

I have been using Crest Whitening strips since I was in the 7th grade. I'm a Junior in Highschool now and for about a year now I have been drinking Coffee everyday. I use them once to twice a year and my friends still tell me how white my teeth are even though I drink Coffee everyday. This is a great product. I recomend it.

I definitely don't believe that these strips are for everyone. I have been consistently using crest white strips for a week now- 30 minutes twice a day, every day. My teeth have not gotten any whiter and I have definitely not seen the drastic change that several other people have seen. Perhaps it's taking longer for these strips to take effect on my teeth, but I do not think I will see a difference after the two weeks are up. After about the fifth day, my gums started feeling more sensitive and I felt them burning when I put on these strips. I will most probably return them and get my money back from crest.

I didn't like this product. I didn't think they worked too well After i take off the strip, my teeth are incredibly white but then they fade back to the way they used to be. They also fall off really easily and don't taste very good when the chemical leaks out of the ends. I don't recommend this. I like the Advanced Seal ones better , even though they cause sensitivity.

I loved this product until i used it the 3rd time. I finished eating a bag of cheetos(the really spicy kind) and then I rinsed my mouth and put the strips on. Then after a minute my upper gums started to BURN like CRAZY.So I took only the upper strips off seeing that there was a white cold sore in between my teeth! It looked like food was stuck there! It hurt! But it went away after 30 min. I recommend this product but wait 20 min after eating!

I bought this product a month ago and it worked fabulously! I had stained teeth from not brushing properly and I thought that you had to go to a dentist to whiten it properly but no! My friend recommended that I should use crest whitening strips. So I went to Walgreens but I didn't know which one to buy because of the variety so I went with the cheapest one. And after 2 weeks of using it, my stains were gone! It was like MAGIC

I bought the multicare crest whitestrips for 55 dollars, but was too impatient as I saw no differences after 2 weeks. Then Walmart had a sale for Classic Whitestrips for 12 dollars. So I bought it. I had the dull yellow teeth from drinking too much coffee and tea. I must say I am amazed at the results!!! You can see a difference after the 4th day! My teeth are whiter than ever! I highly recommend this product, it's cheaper and still works!!!
