In the colder months I find myself reaching for warm beverages more often than not. For me this means tea, coffee and hot chocolate. Sometimes I indulge in a very sweet blueberry wine; I did turn 21 this past April after all. Unfortunately these comforting drinks can leave my teeth looking a little dull. That is where Crest Whitestrips come in. I've been using this product since I was in high school to keep my smile bright.
What I love about these little guys is that they really do work and on me the results last for at least 6-8 months. I do use the Crest toothpaste and whitening mouthwash as well though. I think they definitely help freshen up my smile everyday and I actually like them even better than the Whitestrips themselves. Crest says that "If you're not whitening, you're yellowing" and I do agree with that. I don't think anyone should use Whitestrips everyday (and I highly doubt they would advise it either) but a whitening toothpaste and mouthwash really do make a difference.
What I don't enjoy about this product is that it makes my teeth sensitive. I generally can't use Whitestrips more than 3 days in a row, my teeth just get too irritated. I know not everyone has this problem though and I get hot/cold sensitivity occasionally when not using these as well.
Also, please keep in mind that Whitestrips are not a replacement for good oral hygiene. If you do not take care of your teeth and gums no amount of Whitestrips will magically give you a beautiful smile. I always brush my teeth at least twice a day for at least two full minutes each time.
