Crest 3D White Whitestrips Professional Effects
Advantages: great results, no hassle, good price
Disadvantages: may not be good for sensitive teeth
I heard about these and just had the try them, the promises sounded just great, only problem was, they are not sold in the uk....no matter, a quick visit to ebid (ebid was cheaper than ebay when i looked, shopping around is well worth doing) i picked them up for just over £20...with free post and packaging. This stuff is enamel safe and dentist recommended so nothing to worry about there.
About the product...
This kit is a 20 day treatment kit, which promises high results. The claims are that, as the name of this product would suggest, you will get a professional level of whitening, and you will see results in just 3 days, even for teeth that are very dark yellow or brown. The kit contains 20 pouches, each pouch has two strips, one for you top set of teeth, one for the bottom, the instructions state to use them once a day for half an hour.
how easy were they to use?...
These were very simple to use, i tended to put them on before brushing my teeth in the evenings, you can still drink water with these on but nothing else. They did not slip, and once peeled from the plastic (agian, easily done) it was easy to see which way around they went, and which were for your top and bottom teeth, the half hour seemed no hassle, its easy to fit it in to my everyday life, i read for a bit before bed most nights, and this is when i used these, no hassle.
I did not start to see results after 3 days, but i did after about a week, and after 2 weeks it was a very noticeable difference, my teeth had never been so white. I didn't feel i had to use the last 5 or 6 pouches, and did so just because i always feel its best to follow the instructions given. I had many comments on the whiteness of my teeth, and i was very surprised that an at home whitening kit could achieve such results, i just loved these, and found myself smiling where ever i was, just to show off my new white teeth. My teeth were not too bad before, they were a dull cream colour, maybe a hint of yellow, and after using these as instructed they were a nice white colour, but not like a Hollywood bright white, but a nice white...the perfect kind of white.
It worked wonders for me, but as i have already said, my teeth were not too bad to begin with, the effect was exactly what i wanted, but if you were wanting more of a Hollywood white, this kit will stop just short of that, but for the price difference i would say this kit is a great idea.
would i buy again?...
well, while i loved this product it wasn't without its bad points, after using these for just over a week it started to make my teeth rather sensitive, my teeth are not prone to sensitivity and they began to ache rather a lot by the end of the second week, the ache was irritating and a little painful, but nothing too terrible, not nearly enough to make me stop using them when the effects were so wonderful. I used these nearly 8 months ago now, and the effects have started to dull down, i will probablty buy another one again at some point, possibly make it a yearly thing. I was a tad disapointed when the effects started to dull down, however it is not meant to last for ever, and for the sake of £20 its well worth if for more than 6 months of a perfect smile. A product i now swear by, telling everyone about it who comments on my smile. Worth the slight discomfort, and well worth the money, i recommend this product to anyone who wants a whiter smile, this is by far the best home whitening kit i have ever used, it may not be for everyone, but it was certainly for me.
Summary: well worth buying, people will be commenting on your new bright smile!
