So yesterday I put up some buzz about me getting ready to try Crest 3D Whitestrips. Here was my “story”:
No More Photoshopping White Teeth: Okay, I can’t be the only one that does this. I know a friend used to photoshop the wrinkles from around her eyes – making it look a little smoother. Me, I like to whiten my smile digitally. But I just got accepted to participate in a campaign I am excited about! I will be trying Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips (what a mouthful) to whiten my smile and remove Starbuck/DD Coffee Stains. Why? So I can be more confident when I talk, smile and go about my day-to-day. So here is my before picture. I will post my after picture tomorrow!
Well, here are the pictures. What do you think! No photoshopping done! The top is my picture that I have photoshopped in the past to give myself a brighter smile. And right below it is the picture I just took!
The process was easy enough, but it takes TWO HOURS. I started this at 7:40 pm last night and took it off at 9:30pm – my bedtime. The taste was SO MUCH BETTER than other white strips I’ve tried. In fact, minimal to no flavor. Every packet contains the strips for your upper and lower teeth. You take it off the backing and apply the gel side to your teeth. I noticed a teeny bit of tingling, really barely noticeable – but it was there.
So what I liked. First, I liked that I could see IMMEDIATE results. Putting strips on day-after-day is just such a PITA for me. If I can do it once and see a difference, I am thrilled. I also liked that there was minimal to no taste and that my teeth felt healthy afterwards. It didn’t feel chemically.
How does it work? Well, the 3D Whitestrips use peroxide-infused gel to remove stain build-up below the tooth’s surface. The strip keeps the gel against your teeth to work. You can learn more at the product FAQ page here: Crest 3D White Strips FAQ
Now, I got to try these Crest Whitestrips as part of a campaign. And they wanted to know why I wanted whiter teeth – for an event or something special? But I want whiter teeth to feel better about myself. I felt ashamed of my stained teeth. But now I can present myself with confidence at my son’s school, playdates, when I volunteer and for all the upcoming holiday events. So what would I whiten for? Day to Day Life!
And my box of Crest 3D WhiteStrips has 3 more packets in there to keep my smile bright until the end of the year! One box contains 4 whitening packets, which you can use throughout the year – depending how stained your teeth get. It retails for $55.99, but you can download coupons off the Crest Coupon Page to save you some dough.
