Arm & Hammer Whitening Booster
I have relatively white teeth since I don't drink coffee but I do drink tea occasionally. I have noticed, however, that in the past 6 months of so my teeth haven't been as white as they were before.
I was never satisfied with the whiteness (though I wouldn't call them yellow) so I couple of times I purchased the Crest White Strips (Classic) and used two boxes back to back. Using only one made pretty much no noticable difference so I used both boxes that I had. I don't really know how well it worked, maybe they whitened my teeth a shade or two, but it was almost insignificant to me. I just don't understand how some people can get their teeth super white with those strips - they never worked that well for me. My teeth were, however, white enough so I just left them alone.
I used the strips probably 2+ years ago and my teeth remained white for a long time. But in the past 6 months maybe I've noticed a significant color change... they're not as white as they used to be (and I mainly notice this in pictures when I compare the ones from now to others from a couple of years ago). It started to bother me so I considered trying to Rembrandt Whitening System - but I couldn't find it anywhere so I contacted them and was informed that it's been discontinued. They have a new 2-hour system but I am certainly not going to put my teeth through that kind of abuse.
Anyway, I just saw a commercial for this Arm&Hammer Whitening Booster that you put on your toothpaste and brush your teeth with it. It sounds like a good idea since you can actually brush ALL of your teeth and whiten them at the same time instead of just the front ones like with the strips.
I looked up the product online and it has good reviews, but than again so do the whitening strips and I was far from impressed with those. I currently use the Rembrandt Intense Stain toothpaste and it just doesn't seem to be doing it's job. My teeth aren't getting any whiter and I don't think that I'm going to repurchase a toothpaste that costs $7 for a tiny 3oz tube when I can get a regular 6oz tube of Crest for less than $3.
Has anyone else tried this Arm&Hammer stuff? What is your honest experience? Is it worth trying? Thankfully it only costs around $5 so I am probably going to give it a try if I can find it anywhere. Like I said, I would love to have super white teeth but it just doesn't seem possible with drugstore products so if this stuff will whiten them a shade or two I'd be happy.
