Crest 3D White Strips Review – Decent, but not Magical

by on Friday, September 9th, 2011

Attending big events like weddings mean there’s going to be lots of pictures going on. This is why my Mom felt like whitening her teeth before an upcoming wedding of my cousin’s was mandatory for herself. With the help of Crest 3D 2 Hour Express Whitestrips, she was able to do this the DAY OF the wedding, so that was nice. However, she was not a fan of these. Deciding I owed it to you guys to figure this out, I also did a treatment. I wasn’t incredibly impressed, either, to be honest. These are okay, but not amazing.

Here is her BEFORE smile:

Here is her AFTER smile:

I did not purposefully intend for her to have no makeup on in the first picture and then have it on in the second, that’s just how it worked out when I was there to photograph her. As you can see, her teeth aren’t dramatically whiter in the after shot. I like Crest as a brand, but the results speak for themselves, sadly.

Crest 3D 2 Hour Express Whitestrips Review Thoughts

  • She has had her teeth whitened before. She says she prefers this way more. Her method is done by a dentist, with a mold of her teeth and a whitening compound. She says it’s easier to use, and it fits her teeth perfectly
  • In 2 hours, her teeth were a little whiter, but not very noticeably so. She was disappointed by Crest.
  • She felt like there was a lot of gunk on her teeth when she removed the strips
  • She felt like the instructions were unclear in terms of which strip went where

I did a 2 hour treatment to review these, too.

My Crest 3D Hour Express Whitestrips Review Thoughts

  • These are super easy to use. The instructions are simple. And for the price, it’s fair. Would I buy these again? Yes, but only for a big event that I wanted to impress people for.
  • These didn’t give me a lot of whitening. If you say you’d expect/want about 3 levels of whitening, I feel like I only got 1.
  • They were comfortable. However I kept wanting to fuss with them. I am a perfectionist and never felt like they were fitting tightly enough. And as the 2 hours wore on I felt like the strips were getting air pockets.
  • You can talk while you wear these, but it feels a bit awkward. I spent the time showering and watching Project Runway.
  • I would see if I could do two of the two hour treatments in a day, and maybe that would give me enough whitening power. It’s not magic, and I do hope Crest keeps working on making these better.
  • My tip would be to apply the strips super, super slowly – even slower than the instructions say to. That way you can insure they’re as tightly against your teeth as possible.

What life event would you whiten for in just two hours with Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips?
