Crest 3D Whitestrips Professional Effects Review

Crest 3D Whitestrips Professional Effects is one of the most popular teeth whitening products around. Featuring foam adhesive strips covered with a 10% hydrogen peroxide solution, they promise visible results in 3 days and professional-looking results after 20 days. It’s positioned as the “value” choice - far less expensive than Zoom or Brite Smile, but more expensive than other teeth whitening strip products.

Crest 3D Whitestrips Professional Effects Advantages

Our readers overwhelmingly recommend this product. Listen to Cory of Reston, VA, "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."

Do Crest 3D Whitestrips Professional Effects cause tooth sensitivity?

We receive lots of comments about sensitivity with Crest 3D Whitestrips; but very few users plan to stop using the Strips.

Where can I get Crest 3D Whitestrips Professional Effects?

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

Whitening Factor

Crest 3d Whitestrips Professional Effects receives a high "recommend" rating by contributers of this site–people are clearly seeing results. However, keep in mind that these strips will only whiten the teeth it is in contact with. Some people have very wide smiles - these strips may not whiten all teeth that show in wide smiles.

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

What a RIP OFF! The less expensive variety is more effective. The marketing for this 'professional effects' is that the strips stay on better. It's more like they just greatly reduced the whitening product and increased the adherence factor. They got it backwards; and, of course, it costs MORE.

I was extremely dissatisfied with this product. After 4 or 5 days of using the strips for the recommended 30 minutes, the tingling sensation I felt on my teeth was so intense and unpleasant that I was unable to sleep without being awoken by it. I tried taking a break from the strips for several days, and then beginning anew, but the sensation was just as unbearable as ever. This, combined with the fact that my teeth are not noticeably whiter than they were before experimenting with the strips, makes it impossible for me to recommend them. I highly encourage people to look elsewhere or to consult with a dentist before trying this product.

Save your money and do what the dentist recommends. Go to www.whitersmilelabs.com they have they best lab direct kits for pennies on the dollar. But direct and save. I spent way too much messing around with all these other places.

I used these crest white strip and they were not that effective until I purchased the professional crest whitening strips from happysmileuk

I purchased a product called crest whitening supreme and they were better than these strips as the supreme is a dentist and patient product.

Any one wanting crest strips then you obtain the professional crest dentist strips from happy smile uk.

Crest strips are good but you need the dentist ones and not the otc ones.

happysmileuk is the place to get the professional crest strips from and the prices from happy smile were very good value.

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

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!!!

Disappointing results: there is some difference after using these but not a lot. A perfect smile (or one worthy of a professional treatment) this is most definitely not. On the plus side the strips are easy to use and do not cause any sensitivity - but what good is that if the results aren't there?

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.

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!

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.

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 used these for the first time today. Left on for 30 minutes. My teeth are aching and I can't eat or drink without pain. I do not have sensitive teeth and just had my teeth professionally cleaned a week ago. Never have any sensitivity at the dentist. Not sure if I want to put myself thru this again tomorrow and for the full 14 days. Can't really say if my teeth are any whiter after using once. I used to use Crest whitening strips when they first came out and never had any pain. These are definitely easier to use and not as goopy and stick really well. But be forewarned-you may experience a lot of discomfort and right now I have no idea if or when this ache will go away.

Results were great...... for about 2 days.

They are whiter than before but they are not as white as they were when I was done with the box. I wasn't expecting perfect teeth but it was a little disheartening when the nice white teeth started getting duller and yellower as the days went on.

I do not drink coffee, soda, tea, etc.

I think I might try another box since they are whiter than before. Hopefully the effects accumulate.

Right now I am in agony. I was looking forward to white teeth but I will not be using anymore strips again. I have the 2 hour ones use for 7 days but after just the first one it hurts too much.
I used the ones you keep on for 3o minutes and had no pain but didn't use enough to notice a difference.
So I wouldn't recommend these as for some people maybe for those with sensitive teeth it kills!! I read that it's down to genes and fair haired people feel the effects more. Great! Off to cover my teeth in sensative toothpaste to try to dull down this severe aching.

These are probably the best strips out there. They do whiten pretty well. But strips never do a great job whitening between my teeth/ where my teeth come together it always looks a little darker than the front of my teeth after I use strips. I guess they just don't get into the gaps like a gel does.

By the way, all good whiteners have a high % of bleach in them and that's why your teeth get senitive, and the sensitivity goes away in a day or so. So I don't hold that against this product, because you need a high % of bleach if you want good results. Otherwise you'd be cpmplaing that your teeth didn't get white enough. The only thing I can hold against these is the cost- almost as expensive as professional whiteners. But these are super convenient and do work the best if you're going with strips.

Haven't noticed a difference in the whiteness of my teeth and it's been 9 days. I am finding this product to be very different from the last time I used it a few years ago. This time around it is VERY difficult to remove both top and both layers. It is stuck to my teeth like glue, almost! I don't like that aspect. Another thing: I think I have about 4 packets missing from the box!! Anybody else have this problem with not enough strips???

I just bought these at Walmart for $43. I'm on my third day and I can already see an improvement! They stick to your teeth big time...WAY more than the regular Whitestrips do. No problem wearing them, although it's a bit tricky getting them on without sticking to your lips...again, they are VERY sticky, but once they're on, they don't move. And they're not too noticeable either. My teeth are a little sensitive since starting, but I can live with it. Overall, so far so good.

i bought these at walgreens today and i think that they work great. they adhere much better than whitestrips without advanced seal and it is worth it to get the professional effects level. the only problem i have with these stips is that the bottom portion in somewhat difficult to put in because you need to move your lips and adhere the strip at the same time. the original advanced seal seemed to fit easier to the bottom but these are longer than the original so they do whiten more bottom teeth. all in all a great product!

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.

I used to use the whitening trays that were specifically molded for my teeth. I found that its effects were diminishing. As a result, I recently switched to the 3D Professional. Within 2 days of use my teeth had now reached a new level and am pleased with its outcome. Albeit, the product is a tad high in price, but worth the money if whiter teeth is what your after.

I used the Classics about a year ago and it made my teeth extremely sensitive but with these i have little sensitivity and able to function quite well. I am hooked.

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!

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.

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 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.

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 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'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!

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.

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'm on my second day and have noticed a little lightening of my teeth.

I have sensitivity from it, but I found that any sensitive toothpaste (like Sensodyne) makes that go away.

What I don't understand is why the strips are cut out so short in length. If only Crest would keep the entire film strip on the plastic liner and just separate it in equal widths across the middle so the strip would be long enough to reach your back teeth, instead of cutting out the little shaped pieces. It seems like they're wasting product and we get less benefit.

I'll finish the box, but I'll be searching for tube whitening gel and a tray that will cover ALL my teeth.

A few years ago I tried this product not for the whole lenght of time it says there and I saw good results, so I stopped wearing them. My sister uses them and I can honestly say her smile is beautiful, and super bright!! I am starting to use it again, and is my 3rd day and I been noticing a difference. My teeth are very sensitive, I tried using the 2 hour strips, but honestly they didn't work, they hurt so bad. This ones hurt, But not as bad, and "beauty hurts" so we have to suck it up. I really do recomend this product:)

I have been using other whitening strips in the past but it looks like these do the most whitening. My teeth are a little sensetive now, but it will happen with all whitening strips and bleaching dental procedures.
I'm on day 4, I do use them every other day to decrease the sensativity and use enemel renewal toothpaste. If you're coming across the same problems try doing the same, I'm sure it will help.
I would recommend it to my friends and collegues, I do agree that it provides everything its advertised to do.
Enjoy :D

I completly finished the 20 days and I am pretty satisfied. Although they didnt make them super white like i wanted, it was a head start. i didnt have any sensitivity at all with this product but i probably wont be buying this again considering its so expensive

I bought this after all the good reviews because I have yellow teeth after years of not really brushing correctly combined with coffee.

This did work okay on my teeth. They're whiter but they still have a slight yellow tint to them. I really wanted them to be whiter and these strips are pretty pricey so I expected something better. I didn't have much tooth sensitivity; however, there was one tooth that started to throb when I had the whitestrips on so what I did was fold the strip so that it would still cover the front of the tooth but not the top, this seemed to help. I do occasionally feel a little bit of tingling but nothing serious.

After reading so many reviews, I think the best thing to do is try them out and see if your teeth can handle them. It's 100% satisfaction guaranteed so if you dont like it, they'll send you your money back. You don't have much to lose! Also, I suggest to look on ebay. They're a lot cheaper on ebay each whitestrip comes in a sealed package so you don't have to worry about them being "safe".

I'm considering getting my money back and using that to buy another box so my teeth will be whiter. Overall, I'm satisfied with them.

I was very skeptical at first about buying these, thought I might be wasting £40 on bits of plastic. But I was surprised, they say you can see a difference after the first 3 treatments. I have been double dosing these (using 2 a day, one in morning one in evening) My teeth do look significantly whiter (I can definitely see £40 worth of whitening done) I haven't even finished all 20 packs yet, only about half way through. They provide perfect coverage for my smile with enough excess strip to go over the back of my teeth to hold it in place.
The only thing that I cannot comment on which concerns me is how long this will last, they state a year, but whether they like this now in a years time, only time will tell.
If like me you are skeptical about these working, I'd say definitely give them a go, they worked nicely for me and at £40 for a whole treatment it's much better than going to see the dentist, you will see some improvement for sure.
The first couple of uses did make my teeth sensitive, wasn't unbearable, but atleast you know it's doing something.
