Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Review

Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips are designed to give you an almost-immediate result with minimum sensitivity. They're formulated with a 9.5% hydrogen peroxide gel and extra-sticky foam strips to help you get the boost you're looking for. They're meant to be worn, obviously, for 2 hours and each kit contains 4 treatments so you can help keep your smile bright for a whole year. Unfortunately, the comments we’ve received to date aren't completely complimentary - with most of our comments rating Crest 3D 2 Hour Express Whitestrips at 2.5–or under.

Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Advantages

Clearly, they're created to give you almost-immediate gratification. But we've heard little result of that here at TeethWhiteningReviews.com

Do Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express cause tooth sensitivity?

We have dozens of comments reporting pain and sensitivity reactions with Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips.

Where can I get Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express?

Is it available at most grocery and drug stores. It can also be found at select online retailers.

Whitening Factor

From Shannon of Ottawa, Ontario, "Not only do these not work very well at all, there is the aspect of incredible pain afterwards that should cause one to hesitate when trying this product." Generally speaking, if there is extreme sensitivity after whitening, this means the hydrogen peroxide has gone into the enmale rods to whiten intrinsic stains. We think the product works. However, our hunch is that these whitening strips are too powerful for most people to handle, so they do not stick with it.

PLEASE READ! Use clove oil for the pain!!! :) It's 4:54am and I have been up for an hour. I used Crest 2 hour whitening strips last night around 7 and kept them on for the 2 hours. Everything was fine, I didn't experience any pain or discomfort. When the two hours were up I took the strips off. I noticed a big difference in the colour of my teeth, they were really white! I was really happy with the results and was excited do my second application next week. I went to bed and at 3 I will up with horrible pain!! I tried everything! Oral gel, 2 extra strength aspirins, salt water and applying some frozen meet to my gums. Nothing worked! The pain is horrible! But as I said clove oil works!! Kills the pain and or minimizes it. I am now able to go back to sleep! Hope this helps!

I bought these ones because the price was cheaper than on the other Crest Whitestrips, and I also had a coupon. I had one trial before, and I didn't feel any sensitivity after. But, it's probably because I used them just for 30 minutes. This time, I used them for 2 hours like it says in instructions. After I took them off, I felt a little pricking and I thought it's ok. However, in two hours it started hurting like hell!!! I can't even describe that pain. I tried advil, tea tree oil, salt and water. It was at night, so I couldn't go to the pharmacy. But, if I could, I would. I haven't slept that day at all. I took them off at 11:38 pm, the pain started at 2 a.m. and it calmed down a little bit at 6 a.m.. By 10 a.m. I didn't feel that severe pain; however, it still was hard to talk, and I was afraid to eat or drink. It did bleach, and my teeth became just a little whiter. I don't know if I might feel the same pain if I use them for less hours. It's NOT WORTH IT! I saw a few negative reviews before I used them, but thought people were exaggerating. They weren't. Just don't buy them. I don't even know why they are still on market!!!

Well, I received a sample of the 2 hour expess strips the other day. I read all the reviews here before trying them & I must admit I was quite terrified, especially since I have alway had sensitive teeth & I have an exposed root. Against my better judgement I tried them anyway & was pleasantly surprised. I kept them on for the full 2 hours. I suffered absolutely no pain or sensitivity neither during nor after application & my teeth actually are significantly whiter. I am a heavy smoker & coffee drinker & I am beyond pleased with the results.

DO NOT BUY THE 2 HOUR EXPRESS!!!!!!! The pain is SO bad!!! I have been awake all night and the results are noticable but not at all worth this horrible pain!!! I kept this on for 2 hours and took it off, i had no pain until about 2 hours later when it was so bad i could not sleep, drink or eat! Do not try, not worth it!!!

Well, I had the two hour whitening strips on my teeth for about 40 minutes
I can see my teeth turning white. That's great.
But the pain is horrifying. About ten minutes in, I felt a sharp pain in my lower gum.
I'm a little scared that my teeth will become sensitive after this.
If they do, I'll swish around some salt water.

I've used these before. If you want the most dramatic whitening, brush with baking soda before-hand. This is what I've done, and like I said, it's only been 40 minutes and I can alrady see a huge difference.
These are great if you don't mind pain.

Also, try not to get it on your gums. It will turn them white.

A friend had received a free sample in the mail and gave it to me to try. I kept putting it off because two hours for me seems like a life time ..lol but I tried it this morning and well other then it starting to not stick anymore that's all the complaints I have. I noticed a pain a slight pain one one of my lower teeth but I happened to be reading comments at the time so who knows....lol so I took it off to be safe but for an hour and a half I had them on ...I can notice a difference. Not happy about it but I guess I should be taking better care of my teeth....lol but all in all if I had the money I think I would most certainly buy this !

I purchased the kit at Costco containing two 2 hour treatments and fourteen 30 minute treatments. After using the first 2 hour treatment there was a definite difference and my teeth looked whiter. I used the second two hour treatment today. I will continue on to use the 2 weeks of 30 minute treatments. I personally have not experienced any pain or sensitivity. After I had my teeth cleaned three weeks ago there was sensitivity for about three days so I know what it feels like, but nothing with this product. So far, just what I got, as far as whitening, is worthwhile and I imagine it will improve after the two week regime. It's too bad that some people feel pain and I'm guessing that these people would likely feel pain by a professional whitening as well since they both use peroxide.

Recieved a free sample in the mail. Who can refuse free samples... Well I wish I did.
Although I have tried the 5 minute strips and my complaint on those is they slide around. These 2hr strips stuck very well. My teeth were not much whiter or even noticable but now I have been dealing with sensitive shoooting pain in my gum line and teeth. Everywhere the strips touched is where all the pain in. These strips are longer and wrap to your first set of molars. Half way through my tongue was even irritated. Both hot and cold food and drink is killing me. Nothing is relieving the pain.
Dont fall for this gimmick of Crest unless your willing to survive the pain.

This product is garbage. I thought I would give it a shot and my results were disappointing. The good thing was I has no sesitivity but at the same time there was no difference in whiteness. this product didnt do anything at all.

Oh dear... I have used the strips in the morning, it's evening now and I am still in pain :( I have used other Crest products, such as Professional Whitening strips and they were great. My teeth were a little sensitive but it wasn't a problem. So I've decided to try the 2 hours express one. It's the biggest mistake!! I should have read the reviews before I tried them. OUCH!!

Although the results weren't instantly and exactly what I had hoped for, I still would recommend the 2-hour Advanced Whitening strips. I didn't have any sensitivity while wearing them, but I regularly brush with Colgate Sensitivity toothpaste. So perhaps that eliminated pain which the majority of people experienced. However, about two hours after removing the strips, my gums and teeth ached a bit. It was somewhat uncomfortable, but not horrible; and it went away over night. A few days later I did another application to obtain a whiter smile. No pain at all, however I still didn't get the whiteness I was desiring. Long story short, I used all four applications within two weeks and I finally am happy with the stain removal (and I have never been a smoker or coffee drinker). It's pricey, but much less expensive than what my dentist charges, so I'm pleased with only paying $55. I guess my recommendation would be to brush a few weeks with a tooth/gum sensitivity toothpaste prior to using the whitening strips.

Im a slacker when it comes to tooth whitening. so i thought these would be great. the first time i used them, i had 1 shooting pain that was intense on the top. i use crest sensitivity paste becuz sesodyne just dont work for me. i brushed my teeth afterwards and let it sit on there a bit and didnt rinse. i brushed more often. i had alot of sensitivity. even the next day. it wasnt that bad for me becuz i could sleep through it. it went away after a day or so. i waited 2 weeks before i did it again and had no pain wearing them at all. after very very slight sensitivity, but it might hit me in a lil bit. there not whitening as much as i hoped besides some spots on each tooth which are super white, wish it was the whole tooth, then it would be great. your probably better off paying alot to get the gel trays from the dentist. thats what ill be doing next.

I had them on while reading the posts and was scared to death so after 45 min I took them off. I saw a good change and had no pain issues at all. I think that 2 hours might be to long to leave them on.45 min did just great.

ouch! I'm not crying from the pain but it was enough to wake me up at 3:30 am. as well as everyone else, I'm kicking myself from not reading these reviews before using the strips. I kept them on for the full two hours and had no issues. I then brushed my teeth afterwards wondering if I shouldn't have done that. there was some pain brushing but nothing compared to the throbbing, shooting pain I feel right now. I would not recommend!

PLEASE! If you are thinking of buying these, stay away! I was stupid and read all the comments BEFORE buying these strips and thought to myself, I bet they are over eggagerating and that im sure theres sensitivity but it cant be THAT bad or they wouldnt still be able to sell them...
Well let me tell you, I put these on at 730 and took them off at 930. I felt NO pain, I thought I was in the clear until about 11, an hour and a half AFTER I used them and my teeth started shooting pain. it started off a little pain and by 1 am I couldnt stand it anymore. I had to wake up my 3 year old daughter and bring her with me to the drug store. I took 2 extra strength tylenol, nothing.. bought and used an entire tube of orajel, nothing. By 3 am I went to the emergency room and all they could do was tell me to rinse my mouth out with milk and or water. The pain stayed with me constantly for 12 hours! PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT BUY THESE. YOU WILL REGRET IT... Oh and as for my teeth, NOT WHITER AT ALL..

I used them for 2 hours before I went to bed, & I couldn't sleep from the sensitivity pain. I can see the difference on my teeth, but the pain is still horrible. Not worth the pain. I have used the 14 day one though, and that works good.

I used it last night for 1:40 mn. I didn't have time to use it for the ful two hours. I removed it and rinsed my mouth to make sure there was no product left. This morning both my gums and teeth were aching. My teeth are still very sensitive and it is mid afternoone the next day. The results were not impressive and the pain is not worth it. I will throw away the rest of the pack.

I used the crest3D 2 hour express whitening strips yesterday. Whilst wearing the strips i did not find any pain or discomfort, when the strips had been on for two hours I took them off and brushed my teeth to remove any gel left on my teeth. My teeth were already white but used these strips as a boost to get them looking brighter again. My teeth looked instantly brighter and I am very happy with the results. Around four hours after wearing the strips I did experience some sensitivity but it was nothing I couldn't deal with and it was gone this morning.
I think the strips are excellent value for money and would reccomend this product. Happy whitening!!

I have previously used the 14 day version. I found the whitening effect of the 2 hour strips much less effective than the 14 day version. After the two hours I found that my teeth looked the same, however, stangely, and maybe I am only imagining it, but I found a few days later that my teeth looked whiter.

I had read reviews about horrible pain, so I was afraid to use this product, but took the plunge anyway because I didn't have an extended amount of time to use the other strips. I did wake up in the middle of the night and my teeth felt sore. Not my gums (I was careful to try not to place the strip on my gums) but my actual teeth hurt. It was not painful enough to require a pain medication, and the pain was gone after about half a day. I experienced some tooth pain with the 14 day strips as well. In my opinion, it was nicer to have less than a day of pain with the two hour strips, rather than 14 days plus of pain with the other white strips.

Overall, I would recommend the 14 day strips over the two hour. The result is better with them. However, for a quick fix, I would still reccommend this product. The result was only minor for me, but I am still happy and it was still worth it. No pain no gain.

Someone, make this stop! I just got these from Costco to get my teeth whiter before a wedding. I've used other strips in the past w/ slight to minimal discomfort. About 20 minutes after putting these on, I got the worst shooting pain on the top and could not rip that sucker off fast enough. Not long after came a shooting pain on the bottom and I ripped that one off. I don't know if my teeth are whiter.....I'm still having shooting pain at random that are *horrible* and making my cry out. I wish I could make it stop! Tooth pain can be excruciating.....

My teeth are noticeably whiter. The last day I applied them, the strips were in contact with my gums... no other day, though. Now the places where the strips were covering the gums hurt, but I can take the pain.

I wish I read all of these reviews before I tried this product. I regularly have slight sensitivity to cold foods and beverages but I had used the 20 day version a year ago and had no problem. I thought I was in the clear because I had no pain while the strips were on this time as well. but alas 6 hours later and HOLY SHEEP! I think if I ripped my teeth out it would be less painful. I don't understand how this product is still on the market having these side effects. I will never use the other strips that came in the box nor recomend this product for anyone that has teeth. I'm now alternating between hot water drinks, orajel, and advil and I; like another post before me, wish I had some morphine. :( going to be a long night.

These reviews have me freaked out.

Left them on for only 40 minutes because I'm so nervous. I took them off, my teeth look brighter and I'm slightly senstive (my teeth are normally sensitive anyway).

Ugh!! Got my braces off is morning and thought I should whiten my teeth up a bit before I showed them off. Left the strips on for the entire 2 hrs..felt a little jolt of pain after an hour and a half but it went away quickly. It is now 2hrs since I removed them and I have shooting pain in my gums almost constantly!! Hope this doesn't last too long!! My teeth are remarkably whiter but I will never do this again!! Not worth the pain!!!

I had some sensitivity with the 30 day crest white strips when I used them several times. Sometimes it was worse than others, especially when I would remove the strips or bite down. The sensitivity was tolerable and no big deal, just annoying. With the 2 hour I had NO sensitivity my first use. I keep my teeth in good health and go to the dentist every 6 months. I have only 2 cavities and no other dental issues. My teeth are already white, but the white strips brighten them up a bit. You can't expect amazing results from these things, but they definitely make a noticeable difference (maybe 2-3 shades) for an affordable, quick treatment.

HOOLLY SHIIIIII****

I went to the drug store to buy a ceam treatment for my skin and guess what?... i ended up buying a 3d white crest advanced because the cashier shown me what it did to her teeth and swore to me that this product was a miracle.

I tried it for 50$ Canada ... first strip 30 min/night time... then I hurt a little but nothing to ring a bell... because my teeth are already hurting in a permanent way. Im kinda use to it. I have extremely painful teeth hurting... and a ball of infection and inflation that you can even see outside, right on my skin (from my cheek to my ears). The nerves are making boom boom boom...

the Big deal is that I have infection inside my bones under my teeth, plus many of them are spoiled by inside, sensibility is a everyday cohabitation with me since ever... and I have to take 1 time a year some treatment with drugs to help to ease the pain that comes back intensly every 6 months and can bring me to death. I have to do that until I can afford the operation i need. it costs couple thousands!!

So after trying out the first strip yesterday, i was blown away by its results. It really worked out very well and I didnt realize the pain was there because it was normal for me. But thinking back now, i did hurt. I just took one advil BEFORE because i had a headache...so maybe the pain was under-control because of it!! who knows..

So, next morning, i used an other strip not having aclue what was coming next... The result was greater! but this is the beginning of my painful painful terrible horrible aweful PAIN experimentation!

Holy cowwwwwwww i was very naive about that and i never thought of a somewhat possible pain before to buy it... i didnt know!

God now it is still the same day of the night i took my second strip... and my teeth hurt so much... it's 4h am in the middle of the night (morning)and i CANT sleep... i just took 3 advil and i feel the pain to go stronger and stronger.... Im scared im gonna have to go to dentist surgery in a hurry.... i pray not to.

The pain vs its excellent result is not worth it.
I hope this thing will get out of my system fast and that i dont have to stand the hurt and other day... PLEASE go away... ive suffer enough of teeth trouble in my life, enough.
I didnt beleive it could be the strips that caused the hurt... so i went online and reading about 3d white advanced... I was choc to find out that it was the cause of all this hurting that ive been passing my life to avoid...Oh God it hurts.

It just FUC*ING hurts :(((((((((((((( but it surely works

I have read some of the comments here and was reading them AFTER I had applied the strips. BIG mistake. The rest of my two hours I was waiting in terror for the pain to start. It didnt, I have had some sensitivity but nothing to write home about. I doubt I would have even noticed if I wasnt waiting for it. I slept fine and woke up with no problems in fact I have applied a second set of strips 12 hours after the first set because I removed them in fear of the crippling pain I was "warned" about. I am a heavy smoker and drink coffee, my teeth are a little dingy. I brush 3 times a day with the crest vivid white toothpaste and it maintains my teeth well enough that you couldnt tell I smoke at all. I am blessed with great teeth thank God and decided I would give them a little pick me up with the strips. I went to the drugstore and this product fit my needs the best. It was on sale so I got a break as far as price, regularly priced almost 70 canadian dollars, I paid a little under 50. After use my teeth are no longer 'tinted' and all my teeth are the same shade. It evened out the colour whitened the worst of it and im very pleased with the results. I would recommend this product to anyone just trying to brighten thier smile, its not a dramatic change although I didnt wear them for the full hour. I am wearing them right now in order to complete the full two hours and again NO PAIN just slight irritation due to the chemicals in the strips. Happy whitening!! Good luck and many smiles!

Please, I'm warning you, do not get this product.

I've tried them several times and each time the pain was so excruciating I couldn't bare it and had to take them off. It'd be one thing if you got SPARKLING white teeth after that but all it did was... I don't even know what it did. Maybe whitened them a TAD. It's not worth it at all.

But if you must, have fun wasting your money on a product that barely works and will keep you up all night wishing you had some morphine.

Love, you'll thank me later.

These strips work OK for me for touch-ups. However strips never seem to whiten between my teeth very well/ they just don't seem to get in there like a gel does. As far as them making your teeth sensitive, to me that's just what happens whenever you use a strong whitener. And if you want a your teeth to whiten a bunch you need a strong whitener, especially if you want it to happen in 2 hours! Kind of the no pain no gain scenario. So I don't hold the sensitivity issue against them/ I expected it to be strong if it was going to work.

I bought these strips because I was told they work the best. I have pretty white teeth already, but around my gumlines they could be whiter. So what I can say is that they worked very well. I can see a difference after one use of the 2-hour system. During wearing the strips I felt no pain. A few hours later however, I have NEVER felt tooth pain like this in my entire life. I've had minor cavities, but nothing that ever had pain. I was up all night taking over-the-counter medicines like it was my JOB. I am covered in tattoos and have my nipples pierced, and I would say that this tooth pain isn't worse than the nipples, it's just more annoying, and constant! I was literally up all night because of this, and I'm still feeling the pain now! I tried Orajel, and it just makes my gums numb, doesn't really help because this pain is like in the roots of my teeth. If you have someone you don't like, you should recommend this product to them, but I wouldn't chance this kind of pain unless they find some way around it, like using sensodine a full week before using them or something.

Do not buy this product!!! I bought them about an hour and a half ago (just got my braces off today) and I put these on. After about 20 minutes I started feeling a slight shooting pain around certain teeth, that would go away quickly. I looked at all these reviews, got scared, and took them off at about 50 minutes in. Right now they mostly feel fine but I'll get the shooting pain still, and I'm really scared the pain is going to get worse in a couple hours. Though its very short lived, the shooting pain is bad, and if it were to stay like that, I dont know what I would do. Hopefully this won't happen, but I would NOT recommend this!

Horrible product. I wouldn't wish this pain on my worst enemy. Oragel doesn't help. I've been taking ibeprofen since last night and no difference. I can't eat drink or sleep. =( I've tried swishing salt water like you do for ulcers, warm milk, coffee, tea... nothing is working. I work in a hotel where I have to talk alot and well today I hate my job. I have contacted a family member to see if they can contact my dentist to give me something to get over the pain. =( I do not recommend this product. Any difference in how white my teeth are is not worth the pain.

I bought and used the crest 2 hour whitening strips yesterday. After I took them off I noticed that my teeth were much whiter instantly. Then I got on line to look at reviews for other ppl's results and I was terrified by ppl's reports of pain and agony afterwards. I was sitting around all evening waiting for the pain to come. Well I am happy to say that I have had very very little pain or sensitivity. I have had the slightest tingle and that's it. It's been over 24 hours and I'm happy w the results. I feel bad for ppl who had a bad experience w these strips because I know how awful tooth pain can be but I think some ppl are exaggerating a bit. It's not bad at all!

I was a bit apprehensive about trying these 2 hour whitening strips after the reviews that I had read on here and also when I had used the half hour whitening strips I experienced pain when using them... Although they did work! I bought a pack of the 2 our whitening strips and used them last night. WOw!!! They worked great! So much so that when I went for dinner with friends afterwards they asked if I'd had a whitening treatment from the dentist... And here's the biggy for me absolutely no pain! I was half expecting to wake up through the night and reach for the paracetamol but I have had absolutely no pain and my teeth are at least 2 shades lighter! Result!

PAINFUL AFTERWARDS...Not the results I expected, however it was a free trial...so be wary of "free trials" without further information.


I used the 2 hr. express Whitestrips last night before bed. They came free in an electric Oral B toothbrush I had purchased. I followed the directions on the individual strips, which said place on upper and lower teeth for 2 hours (that was it) they referred to the 'Package" when looking for further instructions.

I took them off 2 hours later when I went to bed. I woke up in the middle of the night, with pain in my upper and lower teeth. I am still in pain and it's 10 hours later. I have taken Ibuprofen twice, hardly slept at all and now feel like the pain has traveled up the roots of my teeth to my jaw and even my ears hurt.

Well after reading the other reviews was a bit scared to try these sooo I used one one day for an hour and another the next day for an other hour(bought from ebay). my teeth are not in the slightest bit sore and noticeably whiter. a while ago I used the supreme strips one after an other and suffered from "pulp burn"agony as described in the other posts!that will be what everyone else is suffering from its just with prolonged contact with the peroxide in the strips so do what I did and you should be o.k .

A TIP FOR PEOPLE EXPERIENCING THE PAINFUL SENSITIVITY: HOT DRINKS! I will elaboraye on this but just wanted to throw that in asap to help anyone (like myself this morning) desperately looking for a tip to relieve the excruciating pain.Hot drinks workef a treat.

This was my first attempt (aside from toothpastes) at tooth whitening.Whilst the strips were slightly uncomfortable whilst wearing them for 2 hours they were bearable and did stay in place.

When i took them off i was thoroughly disappointed to not see even the slightest difference inmy teeth. I thought it was atotal waste of time and went to bed but thought i might as well try again some time in the future as i have loads left.

That was until I woke up 3-4 hours later in agony! Nothing seemed to relieve the pain even for a second. No chanc of going back to sleep. I took painkillers, rubbed pronamel on the teeth, tried wadding my mouth with kitchen towels. Nothing worked! Luckily i didnt have to be anywhere today so I tried just resting in bed but it was getting unbearable!

4 hours of constant pain later and desperately searching online for a solution and being in trats at the prospect of spending a further 20 hours like this, i began to notice something. My teeth were sensitive to my breathing and the cold water i used to swallow painkillers with. I began almost craving a hot drink.

I decided to make myself some porridge (i couldnt bear anything more solid) and a cup of tea (milky and no sugar). I swear to you, just one sip of that tea was like an Angel swooping down. It relieved the pain sooooo much. Especially when i swilled it around the affected teeth.It did take two cups of this tea, two cups of boiling water and a cup of hot milk (think the hot milk was the best actually) to feel completely normal again albeit with a little sensitivity still but with each mouthful my pain subsided a little more. I do still have sensitivity but its not painful like this morning.

. I do keep drinking hot drinks today and need to pee a lot but its worth it as this mirning was torture! I tried a numbing agent this afternoon as well and all it did was numb my tongue snd lips. Hoy drinks all the way!

What a lot of drama though, and the results are not even slight.

HORRIBLE AWFUL 24 HOURS OF PAIN!!! a ton of ib profin didn't work, oral gel didn't work. Painful don't use not worth it. After one use i did see whitter teeth but not worth the pain at all! horrible horrible pain :( Save your 60 bucks. Ouch. Couldn't sleep horrible pain and I don't have sensitive teeth. Some people couldn't drink or even breath in. I could still drink and breath fine I could even drink slightly cold water but I had 24 hours of pain. teeth and igum pain is not fun. Don't do it! I wouldn't wish that pain on my worst enemy. I'm not even a computer bloggy reviewie person but this crap was so horrible I had to try and worn somebody. The pain WILL start about 3-4 hours after use and last 24-48 hours

I used this product last night. While the strips were on i felt no pain, and shortly after i felt no pain. But i woke up in the middle of the night with my teeth extremley sore and was unable to fall back asleep. My teeth are so sore right now and it is the next day. I have taken 3 advils to bare the pain. I also see hardly any difference. But it was just the first time. I'm scared to use them again tonight.

I just used these last night, and WOW! My teeth are definitely noticeably whiter and brighter. I'm actually surprised it worked so well in 2 hours. In fact, i wanted to use it AGAIN right after but read the box only use one treatment every 3 months. Oh well, guess i have to wait. I do have some pain and sensitivity, thankfully, no where near what other people are describing in these reviews. It's kind of worth it for the results.

I was expecting some sensitivity after using the whitening strips but holy cow!! I was in agony all day long, it's been 24 hrs since I used the product and just now the pain started to go away I had to take 5 Advils throughout the day to be able to bare the pain . I will surely not use this product again.

If you want a quick fix up and to make your teeth slightly brighter then this is for you. But if your Teeth are sensitive then this product is not for you. My teeth are not normally sensitive but after using this product my teeth are paining me so bad that I will not use this product again. :(

These have worked great for me! I'm never going to sit there with whiteners on my teeth for two weeks or spend a bunch of money at the dentist, so these are a perfect and quick solution. My teeth look so much whiter after I use them and I get compliments. ***I don't have sensitive teeth or gums*** so the pain others mention was nonexistent during the treatment and right afterwards. The next day I experienced brief pain out of nowhere a couple times, but it only lasted a second. I think if you have healthy, nonsensitive teeth with a legit enamel situation these are perfect.
