People come up to me every single day commenting on my teeth and asking me how I have managed to get them so white. My secret to these pearly whites is simple: Crest 3D White strips.
For the longest I had been looking for different ways to achieve a whiter smile and in all honesty, I was simply not willing to spend $500 on a professional teeth whitening treatment. I had tried using dental strips back in 2005, but the technology was simply not there yet; the strips barely stayed on my teeth and the whitening product would get all in my mouth, just gross. In 2014, almost a decade later, I decided to give it another go, this time using Crest 3D white strips.
As with anything, consistency is key. The first month of using the product, I applied the white strips faithfully, every single night right before bed for 45-60 minutes. But to be honest with you it made my teeth super sensitive, so for the following 4 months, I toned it down to 20 minutes per application, 4-5 times a week. In less than 6 months people started noticing a drastic change in my teeth, before I could even realize it myself! That’s when I was like wow this really, truly works!
With that said, I was sold and switched my entire line of products to the Crest 3d White brand, combining use of the strips with their toothpaste and mouthwash. I slowly phased out the Crest 3D white strips once I got my teeth to where I wanted them- from daily, to 4 times a week, to twice a week, and now it’s been two years since I have even used the strips at all. I have been able to maintain a white smile simply through good flossing and brushing habits using just their toothpaste and mouthwash. Nonetheless , I would still definitely recommend keeping a pack of white strips around the house to use once or twice a month for maintenance.
An important piece of advice is to refrain from consuming any food or beverages for at least 30 minutes after use of all Crest 3D white products.
Another boughetto fab tip is to drink everything with a straw including wine, coffee, and soda- a simple step that will prevent unnecessary staining of your teeth. Thank me later!
The Crest 3D white products can generally be found at your local grocery or drug store. One of the best deals I’ve found is at Costco where you get a bonus pack of 8 strips with your purchase of a regular 28 strip pack- that’s 18 treatments for $40.99. Sam’s Club is currently running a special on 40 white strips (20 treatments) for just $33.98, but hurry because this offer ends July 15! If you don’t have a membership at either store, Target is your best bet as they are now offering major discounts on the Crest 3D white strips; I was super excited to snag a box of 28 for $31.49 today!
