Crest WhiteStrips is an over-the-counter tooth whitening system made by Crest.

What It's Good For

Crest WhiteStrips is intended to whiten teeth and remove stains from tooth enamel.

Who it works for: The ideal candidate for Crest WhiteStrips has moderate yellow staining of the teeth. Yellow stains on the teeth are typically from smoking, consumption of dark liquids or poor dental hygiene.

Crest WhiteStrips are less effective, or not effective at all, on gray-stained teeth (typically from age) and intrinsically-stained teeth (teeth stained from use of antibiotics like tetracycline). They will not work on dental implants or veneered teeth and cannot be used on teeth with braces.

Recommended age range: Crest WhiteStrips can be used by people of any age.

When will I see results?: This is dependent on which WhiteStrips you use, as Crest manufactures a number of whitening strips. For example, you may see full results in about 14 to 21 days of continued use of one type of whitener.

How long it lasts: Results will last until your teeth are stained or yellowed again through smoking, drinking and eating of dark foods, and insufficient dental hygiene.

Key benefits of Crest WhiteStrips: Crest WhiteStrips are an affordable, painless and relatively easy way to whiten teeth at home.

Licensed uses: Crest WhiteStrips are meant to be used to whiten yellow or stained teeth.
