Crest Whitestrips Review

Overall Rating44444


From the makers of the popular Crest Whitestrips Premium Plus, comes Crest Whitestrips Pro Effects – one of the newest offerings in the Crest line of teeth-whitening strip products. Similar to Crest Whitestrips Premium Plus yet different in ways that count the most, Crest Whitestrips Pro Effects has the same amount of bleaching concentration and related ingredients but also contains 10% hydrogen peroxide bleaching concentration which “makes the white more bright” for your best smile ever.

Today we will be reviewing Crest Whitestrips Pro Effects, the new top-of-the-line product from Crest.

The Packaging

Although basically the same product, the packaging of Crest Whitestrips Pro Effects is slightly improved over that of Crest Whitestrips Premium Plus. Where as Premium Plus Whitestrips are loosely packaged in plain cardboard box, Crest Whitestrips Pro Effects is packaged in a convenient blue container which holds twenty individually wrapped strips for the upper teeth and twenty wrapped strips for the lower teeth.

Pro Effects also comes with a small hand-mirror used to monitor or adjust the strips as needed, making it perfect for the consumer on the move and ideal for someone who doesn’t always have time to break away to a restroom or the privacy of a home to see if the strips are performing as they should.

Using Crest Whitestrips Pro Effects

Like the original Premium Plus Whitestrips, the directions contained in Crest Whitestrips Pro Effects are easy to follow. It is easy to see that Crest Whitestrips Pro Effects was made with the consumer in mind. In fact, each of the strips is labeled and color-coded and because of this, it’s easy to determine where the strips are meant to be placed inside the mouth and on which tooth.

As the easy-to-follow directions point out, consumers are advised to wear one set of strips for thirty minutes at a time. In order to get the full effect of Crest Whitestrips Pro Effects, the product needs to be used twice a day for ten days. There is some flexibility in play here: the strips can be conveniently worn at any time of the day, and there is no activity that would preclude their use. That being said, eating, drinking and smoking while wearing Crest Whitestrips Pro Effects is strongly discouraged.

Possible Discomfort, Sensitivity, and Pain

Make no mistake: while Crest Whitestrips Pro Effects is an amazing product, some individuals may experience some slight pain and/or discomfort. Sensitivity may occur for example, due to the bleaching gel coming in contact with the gums. Conversely, after the Whitestrips begin to move around or shift in the mouth some discomfort may be experienced as well. Additionally, while removing the strips, the gel can come in contact with the finger tips and create a slight tingling sensation on the skin. As a result, it is recommended that individuals rinse their mouth and hands immediately after use.

Whitening Factor

Crest Whitestrips Pro Effects is an effective product and an economic alternative to a professional teeth whitening treatment. But it’s also important to note that consumers get what they pay for. Crest Whitestrips Pro Effects is an efficient whitening tool that will whiten even badly stained teeth, but the duration of the long-term effect of the whitening process may vary depending on the individual. However, considering that Crest Whitestrips Pro Effects does not cover all of the teeth, the product does perform as intended although not at a professional level.

The Verdict

Crest Whitestrips are a convenient teeth whitening option if you are looking to whiten your teeth by a few shades.

But if you are looking for better coverage, and a whiter smile we would recommend a professional kit such as the Smile4You which is the same type as used by dentists nationwide.

I’ve been using these whitestrips for years, they are very practical. I haven’t tried the pro effects, but the premium ones are good. Not as good as a good dentist treatment though, but close enough.
