Four days ago I used the 2-hour treatment and I've had agonizing nerve pain on the right side of my mouth on and off ever since. People (like Adam) who think that just because they didn't have pain, that it negates everyone else's pain, are narsistic idiots. Obviously anyone who recommends having several drinks isn't worth listening to. Adam, I hope you never have children. People, use at your own risk. I am not a wimp, and my dental habits are excellent, but this has been an excruciating four days. My dentist just told me it could take up to a week. The improvement was minor and NOT worth the pain.

Vanity. Human beings teeth are not really suppose to be "white" your bones are not, unless they have been burned. What the media has done to our sense of beauty SUCKS! Why would anyone even want to do this to themselves?

I hate this product.! The only good thing about these are they do stick well. I have ery good dental hygene. Never had issues with my teeth, regular visits the whole bit. Well i quit smoking and decided to whiten my teeth. Well used the strips sunday january 29th at 9 am. Had to take them off at 10:30 am because my entire mouth was throbbing. Its 11 pm now and my teeth are killing me me. It feels like my front top and bottom teeth are broken and the roots are exposed. Cant wait till 7 am for an emergency visit to the dentist. Adam was right you do need to drink if you use these.

anyone who feels pain, you've either been carrying out extremely poor dental habits throughout your life, or you're just a wimp. seriously, buy these! FUCKING AMAZING RESULTS! and if you're scared about the pain, have 2, 4 or 10 drinks before hand and you'll be fine. either way, there is nothing to worry about. works great!

I got this product as a gift a while back from my Mom.
I've tried to 30 min one, and saw no results so I thought I would give these a shot.

I applied them, and liked how they stuck on right away. I did have troubles with the bottoms alittle bit but that's because they were more wet than my top teeth. After 10 min in - I decided I would go read the reviews. I was scared ! Most of you have experienced severe pain and didn't recommend this to anyone. I didn't know if I should have taken them off right then or wait it out.

I decided I would go for it but I was still quite nervous because my teeth have been quite sensitive in the past. To my surprise I actually experienced close to NO PAIN AT ALL. There was 2 times where there was some 'shooting' sensitivity that caught me off gaurd that a few of you have mentioned. But wasn't painful.

After taking them off, I was VERY thrilled with the results and I noticed a big difference in my smile and would recommend this product to anyone.

Please do not be scared of the bad reviews. Everyone is different. You just have to give it a shot.

Just to add - I did not brush my teeth beforehand and afterwards I brushed with sensodyne right away.

I was very excited to use this product. But to my disappointment it didn't do much and the pain during after pulling out the strips was barely tolerable. I didn't have shooting pains but my teeth are still sensitive and they are in PAIN. I never knew teeth can actually pain. I should have read these reviews before trying them. I have tried the 30 mins crest strips and those weren't painful at all. We live and learn, I guess. Not the best use of 50 bucks in my opinion.

No no no no no. Didn't realize there was pain involved. And a lot of pain... kind of feel like ripping my teeth out of my head.

I put the strips on and they stayed remarkably still and stuck, had absolutely no pain throughout the 2 hours. Just watched a movie, didn't fall asleep or anything. I set a timer and took them off exactly 2 hours later.... Well I can say that they are roughly 1 shade lighter, not 3.

So then about 10 minutes later I noticed some shooting pains here and there in my lower jaw, but nothing unmanageable, they went away within an hour and I thought "Hey, that wasn't half bad," but then about an hour later (3 -4 hours after strip removal) I started to have some severe pain in my jaw, it's about 7 hours later and it's still not gone. Apparently, this is semi par for the course, I would absolutely not recommend this product

I bought this product the other day as I quit smoking on new years and thought that it would be a great time to whiten my teeth. I seen deals on groupon that ranged for about 100 dollars for a teeth whitening treatment, I decided to go with the crest white strips 2 hour express. My teeth were not very yellow to begin with but afterwards they were clearly whiter to me. About half hour in I got a shooting pain in my bottom tooth, lasted for maybe 10 seconds and then went away. I had other episodes of this throughout he two hours but not many and it was bearable. (I do have a very low pain tolerance). At about 1 hour 50 minutes in I received the second shooting pain and after reading reviews decided to take it out that instant. Product was stuck to the teeth very good and did not slip around too much. If you do decide to take this you should spend some time to accurately Place the strips. Several hours later I have a constant pain in my lower teeth, it is more of an annoyance rather then a pain and I assume for it to go away after I fall asleep. The product did work quite well and the minor pains I have experience are worth the results, it is cheaper then other procedures around and you get instant results for one day of a little pain. Teeth were slightly sensitive to cold water but not really and it made me feel more confident about smiling which is well worth it. (If the pains to not cease tomorrow I will post another review referring back to this one.)

My boyfriend and I have been using the whitening toothpaste for a little over a year and wanted to try something stronger. We tried the strips for the first time tonight and experienced little shots of pain here and there, but nothing we didn't deal with. Since taking them off I am experiencing tremendous, constant pain. I tried to brush my teeth to get the remaining gel off, and I feed like pulling my teeth would be less painful...

I am not really complaining about anything. What do you expect is going to happen when you cover your teeth with peroxide and other cleaning agents? As you whiten, the pores in your teeth are opening to allow the peroxide to bleach out the stains. That is why the sensitivity occurs. I experienced a few random shooting pains through my lower teeth but I am sure that was just due to the exposed nerves. Went through the full two hours without a hitch. Don't psych yourself out for pain or you will probably experience more than you would have. The first time I used them and pretty much every time afterward, I did experience very sensitive teeth and moderate pain. I just take a few Bayer actually and it helps an incredible amount. I use them about once or twice a month depending on how much wine, tea and fruit I consume. It's always nice to not have to worry about your smile and just know that it is bright and ready to go! You just have to put it in the back of your mind that there are reactions to every action and decide if it is worth it or not for you.

Got a good deal on them, first time whitening teeth. Lasted an hour and a half before a shooting pain to my lower left canine tooth. Took the strips off right away (as directed) and the pain has subsided. To be honest, I think their toothpaste did a better job of whitening than the strips.

Conclusion: Really not that painful, really not that effective.

Got the product for Christmas and tried it for the first time, I've used other teeth whitening products with no problems before. After applying the strips about 20 minutes in got a shooting pain in one of my teeth that went away after a few minutes, so I decided to continue and leave them on. Didn't have any problems with it up until I took the strips off. Your teeth just ache. I have a pretty high pain tolerance, and it's not unbearable, but it definitely isn't comfortable. Pain killers do absolutely nothing, as mentioned in many of the other reviews. Found that sucking on cough drops kind of dulled the pain a little bit, but not much. Probably will use them again, just because I still have more, but will never purchase them again. The product did a great job whitening, but if you're going to use them, just be aware you need to have a bit of a tolerance for pain.

I read the reviews and was surprised at the number of people who experienced pain. I experience no discomfort of any kind. I would recommend this product to anyone whose teeth and gums are in good condition.

I used the two-hour express strips. All surfaces that were in direct contact with the strips were noticeably whiter at the end of two hours.

My pain experience - I have used these strips twice in past and they do slightly whiten the teeth. The 1st time I had no problems, a few months later I done it again & my teeth were really sensitive for a few days but it was manageable. However, last night (3 months after the 2nd time I'd used them) I had another go. Due to the sensitivity I experienced before I decided not to leave them on for the full 2 hours, opting for an hour and a half (11pm last night until 12.30am). Took the strips off, lightly brushed my teeth, they felt fine & went to sleep. I woke up with the most horrible pain at 4am this morning, so bad I was in tears. Nothing would relieve it, it was my actual teeth not the gums so bonjela / clove oil weren't effective. I took co-codamol & ibuprofen but neither done any good. After reading the other posts I went to a 24 hr supermarket to get some sensodyne Colgate sensitive pro-relief & smeared both on, it didn't really do much but I kept lashing them both on anyway. At around 12pm I managed to get to sleep (prob the tablets as pain was still bad), woke up at 3.30pm and it is definately not as bad, the 1st 12 hours are the worst. It's now 5.30pm and I've had to cancel a night out as I am so miserable!! Pain still there but nowhere near as bad. Never ever using again as it just isn't worth it, I'd rather my teeth were black than to hav to experience that again.

So I was reallyexcited to try these, a mdi got them for x mas. I have very sensitive teeth.. I felt a quick burning pain in my lower teeth and started reading reviews and got really scared. I waited the whole 2 hours and took them off, brushed and mouth washed. I'm getting slight quick pains in my lower teeth... Also there is a small throbbing pain that is constant, lower jaw. I'm so scared that I'm going to be in so much pain!!!!

I'm using a strip now. It's my first time. I've had them in for about an hour and i've been experiencing quick, sharp pains in just one of my teeth. It's extremely painful, but it stops after a few seconds. I don't know if this is normal...
(the rating is not very accurate because I'm not finished using them. I also don't know the original price.)

First of all im german so my english might not be perfect, just that you know so yeah I was convinced from the positive reviews on amazon so i ordered it on ebay and got it pretty cheap compared to others who paid like 70 (!) $ for this product. Right after that i found this site and was horrified about tge reviews and the pain that most of the people suffered from but it wasnt possible to return it so i figured a methode how to prepare my teeth for the bleaching since i didnt want to throw the stripes away. My teeth arent sensitive except for one tooth. So I bought the GC tooth mousse which i used like 10 days before the bleaching after brushing my teeth on the evening. Its recommended to use it before and after bleaching your teeth it was even more expensive than the stripes but oh well i wanted to give it a try. And i bought listerine and sensodyne toot paste in case my teeth would start hurting afterwards. So yesterday I put on the stripes with a friend who also tried them. And surprisingly it did NOT hurt. Neither during the 2 hours nor afterwards . I did experience a slight twinge a couple times a couple hours after i got the stripes off my teeth but i wouldnt consider that as pain since it was really minimal. Right after i got the stripes off i brushed my teeth with sensodyne and rinse with listerine a couple times untill i went to bed. Now over 24 hours later i still cant complain about any pain. I dont exactly know if its because of the preperation and everything but im really happy it didnt hurt at all because i was really scared it would hurt. Okay so that is the one thing but the other thing is the result. I'm really disappointed my teeth maybe got 1 shade whiter but thats it. my friends also couldnt note a visible change so i would not recommend this product to anyone. I wasnt expecting the hollywood white smile but man that was just a waste of money and time.

I used these, and they performed as expected, but I did end up in agony for the entire day... tried advil, tylenol, and orajel, with not much lasting relief... UNTIL... I remembered the commercial for COLGATE sensitive pro-relief toothpaste... The relief really was instant, and I was mad I didn't go out and pick it up sooner after suffering all day. I would maybe use them again, as long as I had that toothpaste in my drawer, and I was going to be able to use it all day if need be.

Wow, I'm glad I'm not the only one! I thought there was possibly something wrong with my tooth enamel (like worn or thin). I used these strips last night, and left them on for the two hours. After nightmares about my teeth falling out, I awoke at 3am in agony! I'd rather live with freaking ORANGE teeth than use this product again. I've used the 1/2 hour-at-a-time Crest Whitestrips with very little sensitivity. This is intolerable. I've been popping so many Advil I'm afraid my kidneys are gonna fail. Anbesol, aspirin, ibuprofen...no relief. And I'm a vain woman, but nothing is worth with this pain, let me tell you. My sadomasochistic (not really) friend wants to try them, but I hesitate to even let her have the remaining two treatments...I'd feel kinda guilty, as if I were the one supplying the heroin for the overdose. Don't buy this product!!! The pain is not worth the reward. The reward part is TBD, seeing as how I can't open my mouth long enough to take a good look. :-(

FOR FIRST TIME USERS:

for the ppl who is whitening their teeth for the very first time, i suggest you use regular crest strips FIRST. The ones you wear for only 30 min a day....bc it has the same "pain" feeling everyones talking about....if you can tolerate those, then you can tolerate the 2 hour crest strip

ive personally have used the regular ones so i already know the feeling. The feeling for me is very tolerable because im use to it. Its NOT painful to me at all, just a lil sensitive. And its also a great way to lose weight haha, bc its so sensitive you tend not to eat or drink as much :)

I used the 2hr crest strip last nite and accidentaly fell asleep. I had it on for 6 hours instead of 2...and my teeth are sensitive but not painful like everyones talking about. But then again im use to the feeling bc ive use regular crest strips. My teeth are noticeably whiter haha...i wasnt intending to keep it on for that long..

Hope that helps everyone..if your scared and its your first time, plz use the regular crest strips FIRST...it has the same exact "feeling" as the 2hour one but less potent. If you can tolerate that..your good to use the 2 hour one.

One word can best describe this product: PAINFUL. Throughout the two hours that I had the strips on my teeth, I kept feeling sharp pains on my teeth. However, I was determined to keep the strips on regardless of the amount of pain.

I must admit that my teeth were much whiter after I removed the strips. The amount of pain I had to endure throughout the rest of the day (AND the next day) wasn't worth the amount of whitening I experienced.

I can truly say that I'd never, ever use this product again.

I would not recommend this product at all. I wish I had read the reviews before hand. The reason why I went to this site was to see if it is normal to experience pain afterwards. It didn't hurt until after I took them off. This sucks. How long is this going to hurt us my question.

Strange. I have used it twice in one month and had no pain! A little sensitivity while it was on but I am happy with the results & had no pain. & I generally have sensitive teeth in general..

I do find that the results for ONE TIME use isn't that great... I was only happy with the results after the second time I used it. & I used it earlier then it was recommended on the box.

Love it though!

I decided to give these a trial when a set came with my 3D White toothpaste. After about 15-20 minutes of wear, I began to experience shooting pains from my tooth to the top of my gums. It wasn't pleasant. I figured it would only happen once so the first time that it was experienced I decided to ignore it but then it happened again a few minutes later I decided I wasn't going to keep them on any longer. It was painful although after 20 minutes of wear i did notice my teeth were already whiter. I will NOT be buying the full product and I would suggest purchasing it either if you aren't a masochist.

I was planning on getting Zoom but had read a lot online about pain from that, so when I saw these on sale I thought I would try them first.

They were very easy to use, although I was a little confused by the different sized strips, I wasn't sure which one was which and there was nothing to indicate, so I just used the longer one on my upper teeth.
They went on very easily, and stayed on with no issues.

After I had them on I went online and found this review site. Reading about all the painful experiences I began to get a little scared. My teeth aren't super sensitive, but they can be a little sensitive at times. As well, one of my front canines is chipped on the back. I started wondering if I should perhaps take them off but I kept them on for the full two hours (8pm-10pm) because I really wanted to see if they would work.

I experienced no pain or sensitivity while the strips were on. I took them off and used Tom's alcohol free mouthwash, then brushed my teeth with Sensodyne. A little later I felt one small twinge in one of my lower teeth. I wouldn't even classify it as pain, and it lasted maybe 1-2 seconds. I was going to take advil before I went to bed because of all the reviews I read about people waking up in the night with pain, but I forgot and went to bed and slept all night. Woke up this morning and had completely forgotten I had even done it! Brushed my teeth with 3d white toothpaste. Its now almost 2pm and I am still fine with no pain or sensitivity at all, able to eat, drink, talk, no problems.

I noticed that a lot of the reviews that said it was painful also mentioned they had done other teeth whitening treatments before, perhaps that is part of the problem? This was my first time whitening my teeth in any way.

As for the whitening, it was a little disappointing. I do see a difference, but it is pretty minor. I am tempted to use them again as I think one more treatment would give me the effect I desired. My teeth aren't horrible but I am a very light smoker and they are more yellow than I would like (I hate super white fake looking teeth-thats not what I am after!). I'm a little afraid of the damage it could do to my teeth though so I will probably just wait the three months, or I might even try the Zoom like I had originally planned.

Anyway...if they were less expensive I would recommend them. They should sell them in single treatments instead of one years supply...I will likely misplace the strips before I ever use the rest! And the packaging is extremely excessive for such a small product...very very wasteful. I know the paper is recyclable but its still wasteful to use all that ink/energy/plastic to produce several times more packaging than the product actually needs, for that reason alone I probably wouldn't buy them again.

I read these reviews prior to using the product. I was scared out of my mind. Therefore I only kept them on for about an hour. It's been about an hour since I took them off. I'm feeling some sensitivity in my bottom teeth. I'm extremely nervous about the pain I may experience. I took 1100 mg ibuprofen and I'm praying. :/

This is the worst product ever. It HURTS your teeth. How this got approved to be on the market is beyond me! I wish I would have done my research before I tried it. It's been over 12 hours since I used the product and my teeth still hurts.

The product was like glue sticking and pulling on my enamel after the recommended 2 hours of use!

I put the strips on at 9 pm and took the off at 11 pm. I had a sharp pain one time while they were on, They did hurt when I took them off. But 6 am rolls around and i'm woken up my extreme pain in my mouth. I'm in tears it hurts so bad. Ive had a get, gotten tats, and a car accident. This seriously hurts worse. My teeth arent even that much whiter. NOT WORTH IT. I just took some meds hoping it will work!!

I'm only 14 years old and I'm wearing these right now. I only felt 3 or 4 strikes the hit my root of my lower tooth. Thats when I started reading the reviews on the internet. And every review I read, said there was pain afterwards. And this scares. ! I really wanted white teeth b4 my 15th birthday on friday. so my mom got me these. i didnt know it was going to hurt me. I really scared now. ):

I wanted to whiten my teeth before having dental work to bond a front tooth I chipped a few days ago in an accident. I didn't have time to use the two week whitening strips, so decided to try these. They were easy to use, stayed on securely and caused no pain whatsoever (even on my chipped tooth). Mt teeth are noticeably whiter and I couldn't be happier.

Thank you SO much for all of your feedback! I will NOT be using these! I used whitestrips so many years ago when they first came out and after reading this remembered how much my teeth hurt then and cannot imagine the pain you people are talking about! I think the advil, etc, doesn't work because it's nerve pain and that's the hardest kind of pain to kill! Hope you all have white teeth! I'll stick to my baking soda and peroxide home remedy and keep away from sugar and dark drinks instead!

My teeth are a shade whiter, but I am still getting this annoying shooting pain in my teeth the day after. If it were $20 or less, I wouldn't mind, but for something that normally costs around $70 (I paid $40 after using coupons on an already discounted item), this is unacceptable.

For people who need advice on these:

I bought these 2 days ago. Put them on at 7pm and took them off before 9pm. I had no pain at that time. I went to bed and woke up around midnight with an instant pain in my mouth.. it was horrible. I was in tears for 24 hours... I called the company, they told me to take 4 advils... no help. I then tried drinking something hot, cold, warm... no help. Tried brushing my teeth no help and using mouth wash no help. I tried going back to sleep but decided at 3am in the morning to go to walmart, return the stupid thing, and picked up some oragel and sensodine toothpaste. I of course still was in pain the rest of the day so at 8am when the dentist office opened I called asking what to do. They said to put the sensodine on the teeth and leave it sit for as long as I can. Also they told me to get Act mouthwash with floride. This will build back the enamal that was lost. Also if you have a hot pad, that helps too.
I suffered through alot like the rest of these people on here. Pain lasted a little over 24 hours. Still a little sensitive, but at least I could eat and drink again.
For the people who dont know what to do, there really isn't much. I would buy Sensodine and leave it sit on your teeth for as long as you can 3 times a day. and use Act mouth wash. After I would take 4 advil, and put oragel on. That was what was recommended to me. Also, if you bought it from walmart, they refund me all of it even after I used it. Otherwise Crest will refund you. DONT LOSE YOUR RECIEPT! Hope this helps. I am glad when I went through this I saw these responses so I knew it wasn't just me. I knew it was these whitestrips. I also have used the 14 day ones in the past and NEVER had these issues. I am not using anything for awhile until I get my teeth back to normal. I dont recommend anyone with sensitive teeth to use these one. Stick to the 3D mouthwash and toothpaste or buy the 14 day ones and dont used them all the time.

I used this product and i absolutely hate it. I am in HORRIBLE pain. It's 1:30 am and i can not sleep because the pain is so horrible. I seriously would rather be giving birth right now. My top teeth feel okay but the bottom teeth are in an indescribable pain. on a pain scale from one to ten, im a ten. Its absolutely horrible. Ive took 3 ibuprophens and put my son's teething gel on my gums but NEITHER helped. i dont know what to do this is so painful :'( I would only suggest this product to my WORST enemy, no one else.
