A Look At The Company:
Crest has been around for quite some time — first introduced as a brand by Proctor and Gamble in the 1950s, they’ve been making teeth whitening and dental hygiene products longer than almost any company in the industry.
Yes, they know what they are doing. And yes, you can find Crest 3D Whitestrips at any store.
Usually, the best whitening strips prices are online, so we recommend checking out Amazon for the best deal if you’re adamant about purchasing a whitestrips solution..
What You Get:
Each package comes with 20 treatments and you get strips for your upper and lower teeth.
You have to use strips twice a day, so the package works out to around a 7-10 day treatment cycle.
The cost is $40-50 at the store, but you can usually find a better deal on Amazon.
How It Works
Each strip has a powerful peroxide whitening agent on it. You apply the strips to your upper and lower teeth, wait up to 30 minutes and remove.
The People We Talked To:
Generally, people prefer Crest 3D Whitestrips as the best whitening strips solution.
The thing we found, however, is that most people who enjoyed the results they’ve experienced with Whitestrips didn’t know about any other teeth whitening system.
If you’ve tried whitestrips before and you aren’t satisfied, we recommend going for a tray-based system. Whitestrips don’t have the peroxide power that some of the other teeth whitening products we reviewed have.
Our Test Results:
Tests for Crest 3D Whitestrips were very good, not great.
What we’ve found is that strip-based systems aren’t as effective as trays with gel. However, trays do take longer, they can be messy, and they are a pain to fill with gel (unless you go with Dazzlepro), and can sometimes do a better job at reaching all areas of your teeth. However, nothing beat the balance of convenience and whitening effectiveness of Crest 3D Whitestrips.
The Bottom Line:
Crest 3D Whitestrips is a very good option if you want a simple and convenient solution to whiten your teeth within 1-2 weeks. If you’re looking for faster results, best to try a gel tray solution.
