There is no question that I make every effort to avoid prolonged exposure to the sun, and that I wear high SPF sunscreens whenever I go outdoors, but living in Southern California means that exposure to the sun is inevitable. While I avoid tanning, to protect my skin against skin cancer and accelerated aging, my skin does get darker during the summer months, and if my teeth are in the least bit coffee and tea stained it is very obvious. Therefore, when I notice them yellowing, I tend to reach for some sort of teeth whitening product. What complicates this for me is the fact that I have very sensitive teeth, and therefore heavy duty teeth whiteners tend to be far too aggressive for me, and will most often leave my teeth aching and sensitive for days to weeks. Thus, I often approach teeth whiteners with considerable trepidation, and I generally can neither use them for the prescribed period of time, nor for the number of consecutive days recommended to maximize their efficacy. That said, I have been testing Crest 3D White Whitestrips Whitening + Therapy Dental Whitening Kit, and have had good results.Crest 3D White Whitestrips Whitening + Therapy Dental Whitening Kit contains 14 Crest 3D White Whitestrips that are formulated to remove stains from the teeth and the Crest 3D White Enamel Strengthening Serum Toothpaste that you use afterward to strengthen enamel. Crest suggests that these Whitestrips will remove six years worth of stains, and that the Crest 3D White Enamel Strengthening Serum Toothpaste will both, "nourish teeth and strengthen enamel." I cannot vouch as to whether or not they remove up to six years worth of stains because I don't have six years of stains on my teeth, but I am a daily coffee and tea drinker– therefore I drink two of the greatest causes of stained teeth. Crest suggests that for best results one should leave the Whitestrips on for 30 minutes and use them for 14 days in a row, and while I can do the former, I simply cannot do the latter. I do not find that these Whitestrips are too strong for me to use, but I can only use them for about 4-5 days in a row before needing to take a break for a day or two. That said, I used up this entire kit, and while it took me more than two weeks to do, I definitely noted that it significantly whitened my teeth, and it did so without making my teeth ache. In fact, I found this kit so effective that I plan to purchase another set as soon as I require more teeth whitening.
