Thumbs up

Hey young mom.....
A few friends of mine have been using them and they swear by them. I do think their teeth have improved slightly, and they only have been using them 2 weeks. Hope this helps.....

One thing you need to know is that the strips are not very long and might not cover all of your teeth. If you watch their commericals really close you can see that when the person puts it on it only covers about 6 of the top teeth. I if you smile really wide you would have to use two strips on the top.

I bought the Crest Whitestipes and I love them. I have seen a big improvement by using them. My sister wants to buy them now and my fiancee is currently using them. In my opinion, they are worth every cent.
Take care

How long do you have to wear them?

Do you apply them to your tops for awhile, then your bottoms, or both at the same time?

The strips are marked for either the top or lower teeth. You use all of the upper strips first, 2 per day, then you do your lowers, 2 per day also. The strips are left on for 30 minutes each time.

I just recently used the whitestrips on my upper teeth and they are noticeably whiter! I give them a two thumbs up.

There really are no "rules" as to how to wear them. They suggest doing your upper teeth first that way you can compare the change with your lower teeth (which is what I did).

They are EXTREMELY simple to use...tear the pack, peel off the strip, align with your gumline, and press firmly. VERY SIMPLE!

You can wear it whenever you want...I wore two back to back just before bedtime. Sometimes I wore one during the day and one at night. Some people only wear one a day b/c of tooth sensitivity (sensitivity did increase for me but it was tolerable enough to wear 2/day).

I'm going to use the Crest Professinal Whitestrips next as my teeth were darkened from antibiotic use...but don't get me wrong the regular whitestrips worked VERY WELL and I highly recommend it!

I would rate them a 10. I used them, and 6 months later, my teeth are still noticably whiter. My dentist is the one who recommended them to me. He said they are cheaper, and do the exact same thing as they would do professionally. The only differance is that his would only take 3 days over night, and crest whiting strips take 1 hour a day for 2 weeks. I think you will love them.
