If your teeth are anything other than white to yellowish-white, it might be time for a whitening treatment. While professional whitening treatments often cost hundreds of dollars, there are many inexpensive at-home products on the market that advertise equivalent results in just days. According to Crest, its 3D White Whitestrips Professional Effects are just as effective as professional whitening treatments. These strips are covered in a gel that contains the tooth whitening agent peroxide. Used properly, these strips will result in whiter teeth in as little as three days.
- Skill level:
Remove the strips from the foil pouch. Peel one of the strips off of the backing.
Position the strip so that the gel side faces your teeth. Align the strip with your gum line and place it on your teeth. Gently press the strip into place. Fold the remaining portion behind your teeth.
Apply the second strip in the same manner. Leave the strips on your teeth for 30 minutes. Do not exceed 30 minutes.
Gently peel the used strips off of your teeth and throw them in the trash. Remove any excess gel from your teeth by brushing, rinsing or wiping it away.
Tips and warnings
- Do not apply the strips immediately after brushing your teeth.
