Crest Whitestrips Supreme Efect

This effectiveness does come with a possible side effects. Although in general they are safe, the high concentration of hydrogen peroxide that the Crest Whitestrips Supreme has may cause burning sensation on your gums or sensitive teeth during treatment. This product may be suitable for people with normal teeth sensitivity; we cannot recommend this for people with sensitive teeth to begin with.

The whitening effect of this product is top notch. With proper use I could see a very satisfying and significant change in my teeth. However, I did notice that my teeth become sensitive for a few days after treatment. When they do, I stopped using this until the sensitivity lessens. Some slight discomfort in the gum area was also present. But at the end of the day, it the end result was pretty amazing. Here are some tips on the Crest Whitestrips instructions for best results:

Switch your regular toothpaste with sensitive toothpaste like the ones Sensodyne offers two weeks prior to treatment. Be patient, because this will significantly reduce the discomfort and teeth sensitivity.

About one hour before the treatment, brush your teeth with wet toothbrush to open the micropores of on your teeth. It is important not to use any fluoride-based toothpaste, because they can interfere with the hydrogen peroxide cleaning. Cleanomg excessive liquid on your teeth prior to treatment would be better, because it helps the strips to stick even better.

Because the Crest Whitestrips Supreme has a high hydrogen peroxide concentration, instead of using them twice per day, you should first try using it once per day. Pay attention in your teeth response after a few days. If there’s no teeth sensitivity, then you can increase the dosage. Follow the instruction carefully so that the whitestrips can fit your teeth perfectly.

Although the advertisement claims that you can talk or even eat and drinks, most people get the best result when they lie down and do nothing during the treatment. But remember, these are made for one hour use ONLY. Absolutely do not let it on your mouth overnight.

Lastly, avoid foods or drinks that can cause stains until you get your desired teeth color. Drinks like wine or cola will stain your teeth and reduce the Crest Whitestrips Supreme Professional Strength’s effect.
