I purchased the professional effects version which comes with 7 sets, to wear from a few minutes up to two hours per set. In the past I have tried the gel with light that you hold in your mouth (weird, annoying, and...weird) and a rembrandt 2 hour kit (which killed my gums, gave me extreme sensitivity for a few weeks, and whose effects were barely noticeable. My discoloration is from years of red wine, smoking, and coffee (the three best things in my life at the time). Also, not so good about brushing before bed :/ After 3 days (I always wear for the full time), I noticed the tar stains on my lower teeth were almost completely gone! now, after 6 uses (currently on my last treatment) I can see a huge difference in the overall cleanliness and pearlescent, whiter hue. I can smile without thinking or covering my mouth for the first time in over a decade. WOW. It says to use this version only once a year, but if I don't have any gum issues or sensitivity i would consider doing regular whitestrips in about six months, but that's just me. Fabulous product!

i have used this product for about 2 days but when i tried to wear for more then 30 minutes (1 hour) my teeth started to hurt with sensitivity, i will use COLGATE sensitive Pro-Relief for next 2-3 days and start using then again. Otherwise.. Great product and it works.

When I started these I was going to be getting married in less than a month. I wasn't happy with my teeth- I have never been good with a toothbrush). These things are like a blessing. I am only on my 4th day but I can already see the difference. My teeth are coming out a little blotch but I'm not overly concerned about it. I have had no pain at all after the first 2 days (it was just gum sensitivity). I have combined it with whitening toothpaste and mouthwash.

Used these strips for about a week and noticed that half the portion of my teeth were white! They work well. But, for someone such as myself that has all their teeth including wisdoms, they really aren't long enough to cover everything. I've had to go to using two packs for one usage. Other wise, if you're a squirrel or chipmunk with a smaller set of teeth, i recommend these to you!

I started using the crest vivid whitening strips a couple of days ago. My gums are sore and my bottom front teeth get sore also. I could see a difference in my teeth after using the strips for the first time. I brush my teeth after i do the strips.

I've only used these twice but I haven't had any sensitivity or white spots. They whitened my teeth after the very first time. Don't leave these on longer then recommended or eat/drink/brush your teeth afterwards or the strips probably won't work as well. The only thing I don't like is the taste but if you want white teeth, it's worth it!

I used this product for 20 days and my teeth definitely came out more white than before. They do though create some sensitive around the gum and the physical teeth. They also leave a sticky residue on the teeth, it can be wiped or rinse pretty quickly. I recommend brushing your teeth and then waiting 30 minutes before applying the stripes then after I would brush again to get rid of taste, stickiness and residue.

NO PAIN AT ALL. Saw BIG RESULTS on the 2nd day. Yellow to pearly white teeth. I used it 2x a day to get faster results so 1 hr a day total. Bought a whitening set at walmart online for $31 includes 3D Professional effects whitening strips, whitening tooth paste, whitening mouthwash, toothbrush, and price includes shipping. Money well spent!

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am 53 y/o, and when I was young and through my adult life, everyone has always complimented me on my beautiful, straight white teeth...but after 30 years of being a huge coffee/tea drinker, I have discolored my teeth...I bought these professional strips from Ebay for $28.00 + s/h...and after 1 week, my teeth are almost back to their original white, bright color!!! A very slight sensitivity, but I keep mine on for 2 hours at a time, once a day!!! Absolutely recommend these strips...But if you experience a slight sensitivity to liquids in your daily life, then these may not be right for you...

I got a free sample of the Crest 3D white strips. After placing them on my teeth i could feel my teeth becoming very sensitive. I removed them after about 1o minutes due to the bad taste and the increasing pain in my teeth. My teeth then felt very sticky so i brushed again, finding it very painful in places where it was not painful when I brushed by teeth before applying the strips

I decided to try theCrest 3D Professional Effects product based on the recommendation of my dentists assistant. She said it contained the same iingredient as what the dentist would use except not as strong;cheaper too.I was a little pessimistic at first but definitely saw an improvement after the first three days. After two weeks of use the results are like Wow!Now I'm also using the 3D toothpaste and mouthwash. I would definitely recommend 3D products to my friends.

WOW! I bought these on a whim thinking that maybe I would brighten up my smile a bit (Cause I never thought they needed whitening) But after using them for 5 days, they are so much whiter! My boyfriend is steaming with jealousy because I get compliments from my male coworkers all the time. ;) They are super easy to use and I can use them twice a day without sensitivity. Bottom line.... I absolutely love these things. I'm going to have a 'Hollywood smile' for next to nothing in hardly any time at all.

I have been using these for a week now and the results are fantastic!
To be fair i was using them for about half an hour a day instead of the desired 5minutes! (be aware though!.......... i used the strips twice in one day and got extreme sensitivity on my teeth! its the worst pain i have felt! guess thats what i get for being too eager)
All in All... EXCELLENT

I have used several products in the past to whiten my teeth, and none of them really made my teeth much whiter. I purchased these however, and I am on day 7. The results are amazing. Before, my teeth were a medium to light tent of yellow, and I had yellow stains on the lower part of my bottom teeth and the upper part of my upper teeth. My teeth are dramatically whiter and the stains are almost gone. This product works amazing and I would highly recommend this to everyone! The sensitivity has only occurred if I use them twice a day. Once a day, however, causes no sensitivity. Great Product!! :D

Before I used Crest White Strips, I had very yellow teeth..I was even once called ''Jack-O-Lantern Smile''..When I was 19, Crest White Strips were invented & I thought I'd give it a try because nothing else seemed to help. I noticed it working after the first application! After I completed the box of strips --my teeth were Hollywood white!! I now have the whitest teeth out of EVERYONE I know!! I now have the most BEAUTIFUL smile, and love the compliments I CONSTANTLY get!! Now, instead of being called ''Jack-O-Lantern Smile'', people are ALWAYS telling me how absolutely BEAUTIFUL my smile is!!! This product changed my life & I recommend it whole-heatedly!!

This product made my tooth color so uneven! I have marks on my teeth from having braces, you can see an outline around where the brackets used to be. These strips made those marks 10x brighter than the rest of my teeth so the marks stand out even more now!!! A tooth whitening product should whiten every part of your tooth the same amount!

I'm so mad. I will never buy this product again!!!!! DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT IF YOU HAVE ANY UNEVENNESS TO YOUR TOOTH COLOR!!!

I used the crest white white strips vivid and just upgraded to professional effects, I've definitely noticed my teeth getting whiter and I'm very satisfied, another thing i like about the professional effects is that u can hardly tell they're there as well as the gel that was very noticeable with the vivid, overall great product in which I would recommend to anyone!! :)

i've wanted whiter teeth for years, last year on holiday to florida i payed $300 to get my teeth professionally whitened, after the session ended i was dissapointed as i didnt see any diffrence! i had hardly any holiday money left and thought it was just a waste! then while shopping i came across crest 3D white strips, they were around $40 dollers for a 21 day pack, as i didn't have much money i left without buying them, i wish i did now! i was looking on ebay last month and came across the crest whitening products and decided to pick the 3D ones i'd seen on holiday, i payed around £32 for them, after a week of using them twice a day for 30mins (maybe a little longer actually :D ) i was so suprised by the results! although after the 21 days supply my teeth arn't 100% pearly white they are a hell of alot better then when i had them "professionally whitened"! i've already ordered another supply! i would reccomend these any day then going to the dentist and paying a fortune for nothing! to prove you they work i didn't tell anyone i was using them, 2 weeks into it my sister asked why my teeth looked whiter! i couldnt stop smilling after that!

This is the 1st time I have used any type of strip and overall, not too bad. I agree that they should only be used 1x/day because it can cause sensitivity. I have been using them for about 8 days and have seen some difference. For the price and ease of use, I would recommend you give them a try. Don't really see any downside of using them.

I love using white strips and these are the best ones I've tried so far. Getting it done at the dentist made my teeth soo sensitive that I never want to do that again! A trick I've found to eliminate sensitivity is cutting the strips in half. Then you have twice as many with the same results. IF sensitivity is a problem for you too, I would recommend it. Just a note though, I don't try to drink anything because the seal probably isn't good enough to prevent liquid getting under them.

I just finished the whole pack. and let me say these strips work great! they are the higher end crest strips, and are well work the money. I used the lower end cheaper ones before with little to show. But these strips worked so well. They did cause some sensitivity, but that was only if i used them twice a day. I would recommend just once a day, because when i did that i had no sensitivity. My teeth are super white and shiny, and i will continue to use these.

I am a huge teeth-whitening enthusiast, and I use this product at least 1-2 every week. There is no doubt that this is the best product on the market sold in drug stores. Each day, in this order, I floss, use listerine vivid effects whitening mouthwash, brush (very-well!!) with Crest 3-D advanced vivid toothpaste, and then rinse (at least once a day after brushing) with fluoride rinse such as phosflur (which I recently started doing). I have tried these crest whitening strips before brushing, directly after brushing, and also without having brushed immediately before/after. I definitely see the best results when I do not brush immediately after using the strips. However, I always experience awful tooth sensitivity the rest of the day if I leave the strips on for the full directed time of 30 minutes. I also have issues with color consistency-- After removing the whitening strips, I always have this awkward spot on one front tooth that is much whiter than the rest of the tooth, however, this usually does not remain, and the color seems to blend better later in the day. Another problem with this product is that it has no long-term capabilities. I can best describe this by comparing the product to a self-tanner lotion-- you use the product, and 2 days after application, the color is all gone from your skin (either from showering or it rubbing off onto clothes/sheets).
About 8 years ago, I had my braces taken off after 4 years of orthodonture, and my once pearly, bright-white teeth were now very stained. I had the brite smile professional in-office whitening system done at my dentist's office. I had no sensitivity, and the effects of this were long lasting, powerful, and exactly what I wanted. Also, the use of whitening toothpastes, rinses only helped prolong and enhance the incredible results of the procedure. My teeth would actually GLOW in pictures. (I only started using whitening strips for the first time 3 years ago.) For this reason, I know the difference between the strips and brite smile. In order for the strips to work to their full potential, you have to use them every day. Even so, they still are incapable of achieving the color I desire.
Crest strips are definitely affordable, and often I find them for $10 off in drug stores. I go through, at the minimum, 1 package of strips every 2 months. So, every 2 months I spend about $45-55 on this product. In a year, that would total up to about $300 (or more depending on frequency of usage). Therefore, the cost is definitely of no issue if you compare it to that of other products. However, it's inability have lasting effects without re-application is just a complete let down.
Regardless, do not think that I am unsatisfied with the product, because that is not the case. I always use the strips for 30 minutes before going out at night, and there is no doubt that my teeth are noticeably whiter. This product is great if you need quick/cheap whiter teeth. (Use it once each day (for 30 mins) for at least 3-5 days consecutive days, and you will have white teeth!-- this is perfect if you want to make your teeth look white for a big event such as your birthday, etc.) But keep in mind that there is no long-term effect to this product. So for spending, at minimum, $300 in a year (or up to $600 if used every day), you have to evaluate whether such an investment is actually intelligent. You can find professional whitening procedures that begin at $299 and range anywhere up to $500 (the prices are generally much cheaper now than they were when I got brite smile 8 years ago-- I paid over $500).
I can't even begin to express my level of satisfaction with brite smile as opposed to that of the strips. If you are willing to pay the $300 for professional in-office whitening, you will not need to use whitening strips for up to 5 years. But, if you prefer the do-it-yourself-everyday method, then this is definitely your best bet!

I used this product either once or twice a day. When I used it only once a day, I had no sensitivity, but when I left it on too long or used it twice, I had sharp little pains.
It definitely doesn't taste very good, but I don't know how the taste compares to other whitening products, since this is the first one I've ever used.
My teeth are significantly whiter, so it works on that front.
I'm satisfied with it.

I'm a Senior in high school, so it's difficult to find time to use these. I just place them on my teeth and keep them on while I'm getting ready for school, and then I use them at night while I'm studying.
I love how the strips are thin so they just sit on my teeth and I can easily talk on the phone without sounding strange. :)
I don't use the strips regularly anymore, but I keep them handy in case my teeth start to get yellowish. When I first got them, I did use them regularly though. I even used them twice a day for awhile. When I was satisfied with the color of my teeth, I slowed my use.
They work rather quickly (my teeth got 10X whiter over the course of less than a month). The effects aren't sudden, though, so my friends didn't realize my teeth getting whiter until one day a girl turned around in the lunch line and asked me if my teeth were just naturally that white. So BRAVO to Crest White Strips Professional Effects!!!

I am a smoker and an ice tea drinker and like most I have tried various products in the past without much of a results. I only have 4 out of the 20 treatments left and I and my friends have noticed a difference. The price is a bit high, but compared to a procedure done by a dentist, just a drop in the bucket. I highly recommend the professional strips.

After wanting a whiter smile, I looked into teeth whiteners. Although I thought the price for the white strips was a tad high, many people I know have used them with great results, so I was going to give it a go. After using them for five days, I can already see a noticeable difference in my smile. It's awesome! I was definitely a sceptic, however after the use of only five of the strips, I can tell a difference. Expensive? Yes. Worth it? Totally.

WOW! I am actually shocked by how well this is working. I've been a huge soda drinker since I was a kid (I can drink a 2 liter in one day - easy) and a former smoker and over the years I have tried multiple whitening products with no change (though I admit, I'm not very good about being consistent or following the directions to a T), but now going through a mid-life (at 39) and my son is a teenager and I've decided to start giving my looks more attention (no more wash and go makeup free soccer mom look! and I'm finally going to try to lose my "baby" weight!), so I picked up a box and said what the heck. Well this time I've been following the directions exactly and I'm being consistent and after using 12 of the 20 strips I am seeing a major difference. Though not a bright white smile, which I may never have and never did have, my teeth are significantly less yellow and more white. I'm shocked!!! When I bought them I had planned to use the 100% money back guarantee but I have to be honest - it really does work. My plan is to finish out the last 8 strips and then buy another kit and do a few more until they are the desired whiteness (which I'm not sure what that even is since they've never been white!) and then keep the rest for maintenance. And what's really funny is that I have never been a big "smiler" for just this reason - my nasty yellow teeth - but lately I'm more confident about my smile and I smile bigger. I have to consciously uncurl my lips from over my teeth, though, since that has been my habit for 30+ years. But it is liberating - like wearing a bikini after losing a ton of weight!!!

I've been using Professional Effects for a week now and I'm very pleased. At first it just seemed like my teeth were a brighter yellow. In the last two days, however, I'm noticing better results. My kit ($43.99 at Target) came with a tube of 3D Vivid toothpaste so I'm using that as well, which may help. I will probably do two courses. While the product is expensive compared to other drugstore products, it's a bargain compared to dentist treatments.

I cannot imagine anything that works better than these strips. I wear them everyday and don't have any sensitivity or gum problems. I can see my teeth get whiter every day. Contrary to what I've read, they do somehow whiten between teeth. Compared to a professional system, these things are way cheaper. Its pretty easy to put one in your wallet and just sneak into the bathroom at work and apply it before your ride home.

I am on day 4 with the professional effects. I see little improvement and my teeth are noticably sensitive, both to hot food and in general. I like the strips and don't mind the price but I am concerned that if the pain increases too much more before the whitening improves significantly more, I am not going to make it through the pack.

Made my teeth a little sensitive. Everyone could see a difference starting on day 3. It's kindof a pain that it takes 20 days to finish the whole thing though. I guess most people double-up and do two a day for 10 days, but I was affraid my teeth were too sesitive for that. Overall - stoked that I didn't have to spend $1K to have it done at the dentist. And it worked!

My smile like so many others had started to turn yellow after my habit of a morning coffee & afternoon latte. I also used to smoke but quit a few years ago. Even though I quit, the damage had been done to my once white, bright smile. I tried these & not only did they not whiten my teeth my teeth became sensitive after using them. I have never had sensitive teeth before using these strips. That pain went away after I stopped using them. They aren't cheap either!! My dentist wanted $800, EIGHT HUNDRED DOLLARS to whiten them! I was immediately distressed to learn how much my dentist wanted. I thought that might be my only answer but wasn't sure when I would ever have that much extra cash sitting around. I even went as far as asking my dentist if I could pay monthly for it. Nope. He wanted it all up front. Not the first time I have thought my dentist was greedy either. My girlfriend told me about her hair salon that was now offering teeth whitening. After researching it I decided to have it done. They used Hydrogen Peroxide which is the same thing my Dentist said he used. Not sure if it was the same strength or not. The hair salon only charges $159. It was a very comfortable experience & the most important thing my teeth are beautifully white again!! I smile more now than ever. It feels good to smile again. There was no sensitivity either with the salon whitening. I saw a kiosk in our mall open up the other day. I am glad there are options to the $800 over priced dental procedure. it has been about three months now & I am still enjoying my bright white smile. My girlfriend & I are now engaged. She said if I hadn't figured out my yellow teeth problem she wouldn't have said yes!!! lol

I bought the 3D Whitestrips and saw results within the 3 days as stated on the package. I also had a coupon from my grocery store which gave me $7 off. That helped tremendously. The only problem is getting them placed on your teeth. They have a tendency to slide down and bunching up. Once you get them placed they hold pretty good though.
