Are you like me where you’re either afraid of going to the dentist, too lazy to get real teeth whitening, and just don’t want to pay for it if you don’t have to? About a month ago, I got my yearly teeth cleaning and I asked my hygienist for non-professional teeth whitening options. She recommended the Crest 3d White Strips. Guess what I did the very next day? That’s right, I got the Professional Effects 3d White Strips (Pictured on the left).
Results: Out of a scale from 1-5 (1 being no effects to 5 my teeth are blinding white!), my rate would be a 2.5 out of 5. It wasn’t as white as I wanted it to be, but it did have SOME effect. I thought about posting up pictures of my teeth, but I don’t want to gross you out! =P
Would I Recommend this Product?
Not really. I spent about $45 on it and the results weren’t what I wanted. I thought about returning it to the manufacturer and getting my money back, but I just thought it was too much of a hassle.
What REALLY worked for me:
After the disappointment with the crest whitening strips, I decided to do a little research on other non-professional teeth whitening options. I remember reading an article about the Crest Whitening toothpaste and it was the top rated one. SO I went to the supermarket and got the Crest 3D White Vivid Toothpaste (pictured on the right). I got mines on sale so I ended up spending about $5 for it. Yay for deals!
After about using this for a month, my rating would be a 4 out of 5. It was a pretty significant difference from the very beginning for me. In the reviews it said that the Crest 3D whitening toothpaste worked the best; even though it took longer for the effects to come in.
Now I have a beautiful white smile!
