I have these in the 2hour, 7 day type. I'm on day 6 of using these. I haven;t really noticed a huge difference with these - especially on my bottom teeth. They stick really well to my top teeth but not to my bottom teeth for some reason. My top teeth are definitely whiter but my bottom teeth aren't. I received these to test for free so the cost is not an issue for me.

I hated the original whitestrips coz they slipped off and didnt notice a huge effect with whitening but I got the Advanced Seal Professional effects (NOT the 2 hr one) because i was concerned about sensitivity. I've been doing it for 20 minutes once a day and on day 3, i definitely noticed a big difference!!! No sensitivity (I wait about an hr after brushing teeth). Hoping for awesome results by day 20. Pricy but beats the heck out of paying $200 for Zoom!

Very effective product...i have never needed to use the entire box at once to achieve a brilliantly white smile.
I will say that this product does cause sensitivity, so I use sensodyne toothpaste while using these to avoid discomfort. All whitening procedures I've had cause sensitivity tho, so I can't ding it's points for that.
I also use the lower strip for my top teeth because it's longer, and the top strip for my lower teeth...suites my smile better.
The advanced seal is SO worth the extra money...no slipping, sliding, or gross tasting goo. The cost is pretty steep for a drugstore product, but compared to professional dental whitening it's a steal of a deal...and works better, bc I've had and been disatisfied with professional whitening.
A box used to last me a year...now that I've quit smoking, I'm sure it will be more like two! I used to use an electric toothbrush and colgate total whitening (which I believe has triclosan---just found out how dangerous that is!) but have switched to crest vivid 3d white toothpaste to maintain my super white smile.

I've been using Crest Whitestrips for several years now. I love the Advanced Seal because they stick to your teeth so well and you don't have as much slime to deal with when you take them off. I generally use them for 2-3 days then take a break for a few days to help with the sensitivity. I also use Colgate Total with Whitening toothpaste. I drink coffee and I smoke off and on but my teeth are pretty white. In fact, I've had people comment on them and ask if I've had treatments done. My practice has been to use a box, then wait 3-6 months and use another. HOWEVER, I recently read on Kandee Johnson's blog about using a mouthguard and something called 5 Minute Teeth Whitening Gel and I'm going to try it out. Her teeth are very white and the total cost of the supplies is $10-$15, depending on the mouthpiece you get. Looks like the tube of gel would last awhile, too, so that's even more savings. If you're interested in reading her technique here's the link http://www.kandeej.com/2010/05/how-to-get-super-white-teeth-for-cheap.html. I have nothing whatsoever to do with Kandee Johnson - I found her when I was searching for makeup tips on YouTube. I just wanted to let people know of options if buying the Crest Whitestrips is a little cost-prohibitive for you :) If this doesn't work I will certainly return to Whitestrips. I just had some on this morning!

You can't buy this in Europe, but I found Isosmile.com and they ship to Finland (free shipping) and for a good price.
I didn't use it like it sad on the box, to use it for 14 days and have a hollywood smile, and after 3 uses you will see a whiter smile.
I saw a different after the first use, and after the 4th I was happy with the result so I stopped using it and only uses the rest for touchups like once a month.
I'm very happy whit my how white my teeth are now and people and friend have seen a differnt.
I did feel some pain in the teeth but nothing bad. I do recommend using a toothpaste for sensitive teeth, that will help.
The only negative thing with these are that the strips are to small, they don't cover all the teeth that I whant to whiten. So I cut up some of them and put it on my inner teeth.

**THIS REVIEW IS FOR ADVANCED SEAL - ADVANCED VIVID** FINALLY decided to purchase these after I got my braces taken off 2 years ago and always been wary about how much they discoloured my teeth, especially the ones at the side which were more yellow than the rest. I bought them on www.discounthealthproducts.co.uk - recommend completely, much cheaper price, only £26.95 - compared to what other websites charge. Anyhow just completed the full 14 days and I honestly could not have loved my experience more than I did. I found myself getting excited during the day waiting for the morning, as I applied these each day before I went to college. SO easy to apply, even for a total idiot like me who seems to find a difficulty with everything ha! Just peel back, place on your teeth, wrap the rest underneath, done. They stick extremely well, I even have to tug a little to get them off so definitely no problems with them slipping and sliding lol. The first day I began to use them I found my mouth got extremely watery, no discomfort whatsoever, just a watery mouth. Though by the 3rd day I got used to them completely and could easily forget they were in. Some people have complained about the size of the bottom strip, but really, unless you smile showing a lot of your bottom teeth, there's not really a need to whiten them all as you hardly ever show them. If you don't show much of your bottom when you smile, there are no problems at all. If you do, consider Crest Professional Effects which have a longer bottom strip. Saw results after 2 days actually, and by the 3rd day my Dad was amazed; he didn't think they'd work, I knew they would and proved him wrong :P. My teeth are MUCH whiter, by about at least 3 or 4 shades and I'm extremely happy. Definitely going to purchase again next year. Oh, and I had very little sensitivity. Because I had braces for almost 2 years they were slightly sensitive but the strips were fine. Maybe made them slightly more sensitive but no pain or anything so it's all good. So happy, woohooo! X

This whitens well and stays on the teeth but it's pricey and makes my teeth sensitive.

I'm on day 4 and these really do work.
Will update again after I've used all 14 strips.
-Having yellow and stained teeth for years, this really whitens them and it's a noticeable change.
-The advanced seal is nice because the strips don't slide off your teeth during the 30mins of waiting.
-Not that expensive if you compare to having your teeth whitened professionally!
-The bottom strip is too short and doesn't cover enough teeth. Although, correct me if I'm wrong, I think Crest do have a different product with longer strips, but it costs more.

I've had my teeth professionally whitened, but these strips whiten them MUCH better! I drink tea and my teeth tend to get dull but just one or two days of these strips are my teeth are really white again. However, like all whitening strips, these will hurt if you have sensitive teeth. BUT I found a way around that. The part of my teeth that always hurt are the tops and I think that's because that's where the nerve endings are (I could be totally making this up haha). Anyway, what's great about Advanced Seal is that they stick so tightly to your teeth that I was able to cut each strip in half (or at least cut 1/3 off if you have larger teeth than I do) so the strip no longer folds over my teeth, and they still stay in place perfectly. Now I never get any pain! Also, this allows me to get two uses out of every individual strip packet so a box lasts forever! Anyone who has experienced sensitivity might want to try this

The premium was a tad less, but I felt it did more. My teeth were pretty white to begin with. However, I use Crest white strips to maintain the whiteness when I see my teeth getting little dull. With the regular strips and the premium strips, I only used them once every other day and I felt like they worked much faster. With these, they're great because they don't slide around so you don't taste the gross gel, but I don't feel they work as well or at least as fast. I'd save the extra few bucks and get the regular. The sliding doesn't bother me that much.

This product works. I've noticed whiter teeth in 4 days. BUT! If you have sensitive teeth like I do....it really hurts. I was told to do it at night..but I would wakeup in pain. I told my dentist..and she said to either stop using it or start using sensodyne toothpaste. So I went and bought it today. Hopefully it will work. But as far as results go...Definately works!

This product is definetly worth the price! I had worn braces for nearly 3 1/2 years and wanted to whiten my teeth after I had removed them. I went to get them professionally clean using ZOOM at my dentist office for nearly $400.00 and honestly, I really didn't see a difference for the price I paid. My dentist had told me that my teeth were preety white, but I wanted like Movie star white teeth. Then I found out the only way to achieve that white of a teeth was through veneers and procelain, which almost all Movie Stars had. So after a year has passed, I dediced to use Crest WhiteStrips, to see if I was able to whiten them a little bit more and I had an upcoming Friends wedding to go to in two weeks. I heard alot of raves about this product, and I am glad I gave it a shot! I brought it on sale at SuperStore for $40,00 here in CAD, and have been using the product for nearly 4 days now, and wow, the results are unbeliveable! Better then when I tried Zoom. My teeth isn't veener white, as I learned that your teeth can never achieve this colour, but there a white where I have healthy white teeth looks. Everyone should give it a try, and then maintain the look every 3-6 months. I don't smoke nor drink coffee, so I don't have to use it that often. All whitening brand, whether professional or not, will cause some form of sensitivety, trust me, I tried professional already.
Give it a try everyone! I am sure glad I did!
Update: I just wanted to provide a brief update after having used this product for 1 1/2 weeks. It is soooooooo woth the price. My teeth has never been whiter. I will probably use another box right after this box so the results increase. Should definetly try. I didn't experience any sensitivity and I did wear them at night for about an hour to an hour and a half.
Hope this help!

I have bleach trays for my top teeth from my dentist but I haven't purchased the bottoms bc I am doing invisilign (s/p) for my bottom teeth. Because of this, I needed a whitening agent for my lowers and was recommended these by my dental hygenist. I used the old White Strips, and I completely agree that these adhere 100% better to your teeth and also leave almost no disgusting taste in your mouth after like the previous formula. I do not like how the lower and top strips are in the same little package, because like I said I only needed them for the bottom and could have given someone else the tops but I'm not going to give away a bunch of open packages...or they could make boxes for just top or just bottom so I wouldn't have to spend $$ for both. However, I understand that may be a bit of an unreasonable demand so I digress. All that being accounted for, after two days I did feel my teeth were beginning to improve in appearance, just generally a little whiter. However, I cannot follow the instructions to use everyday because the PAIN and SENSITIVITY that I am feeling. These irritate my teeth far more than my Venus bleaching agent (I ended up just doing top and bottom whitestrips since I already paid for and opened the package) and I only left them on for the recommended 30 minutes. The sensitivity I had was ridiculous, it kicked in a cpl hours after my second time of using and hurt for hours, a dull annoying pain. I used Orajel (whatever it's called) to ease the discomfort and Aleve and it helped somewhat....I guess this is why they say beauty is pain. I will suffer through and update along the way. I just really do not recommend for being with even the slightest bit of sensitivity.

I bought the "Crest 3D White Advanced Vivid Whitestrips" (with the Advanced Seal feature). They take 14 days, and you're instructed to use once a day. I've never whitened my teeth before and I drink a lot of soda and caffeine, so my teeth had a very pale yellowish tint to them. This is going to be a review in the making, I'll update the progress every few days.
Day 3 - I've used three times so far. The box says by this time I should be seeing results, and I do. My teeth aren't entirely white, but already whiter than they've ever been before. As for sensitivity, the first couple days I didn't experience any but after the third time my teeth feel just a little tingly... nothing painful at all, just a very slight tingle on my front teeth.

i bought the 3D White Advanced Seal ones and they are HG for me!!! i did not experience any of the pain or sensitivity with them.. i have gone through 2 boxes of them and will continue to use them for maintenance. i love that theres a $7 off coupon inside each box.. it makes me feel better about buying them. i will keep buying them over and over!!
i love that i dont get the nasty bleachy taste in my mouth and that these really dont move.. they dont slide off like the previous strips had done in the past
these are so amazing i cant sing their praises enough... i love the advanced seal formula... they are fantastic =)
people compliment me on the brightness of my teeth.. they are white and vibrant but not fake looking.. i was afraid id look like i had a mouth full of chiclets but nope... just a beautiful smile =)
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Brown, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Hazel
these stick really well, and so far it has only been 2 days since i started using them but i CAN tell that my teeth are getting brighter, but then again my teeth are not that stained to begin with...however, the pain is unbearable. not just when i eat, but if i sit here and do absolutely nothing i can feel he pain. the first time i used these, i got a sample and it made my gum blister. i gave it another shot and purchased the box, but my bottom teeth are killing me. i will most likely not be putting them on my bottom teeth again, and maybe using 2 bottom strips for the top since that is where my teeth need to be whitened most anyway.. the bottom ones are really short and don't cover many teeth..strange if u ask me. they are not hard to remove and i love that they don't taste like pure crap and do not move around and stay put. i do think they are expensive- $45 for a 14 day supply, but the only other ones i have ever tried were the listerine ones that were cheaper yet tasted horrid and i stopped using them after 2 uses. I love the fact that you can hardly taste anything with these on. I might go a day in between uses just because of the pain. Keep in mind, my teeth are not normally sensitive. I am still giving it a high rating for now because they seem to do the job that is asked of them- whiten teeth.
update: I stopped using these because of how bad the pain was, but I can tell my teeth are whiter. I might go back to using these in a month or so for spot whitening.

I love these! Hate the price :(. They stay put, and make my teeth super white. There so much better than the higher brand ones like GoSmile, which was useless and a waste of money. I could have bought 3 packs of these for the price I payed for the GoSmiles. I always get complimented on how white my teeth are when I use these. They do cause some sensitivity but I find that using the Listerine total care, the purple one helps a lot!

Well I've heard about the old version of these and I've never tried them, I'm glad I didn't because all of the negative things I've heard about them. However I recently started using the advanced seal ones, I have to say... My teeth are almost 100% white now. I think I may have been using them for about a month now and I have great results. I really wish that i took a picture of my teeth before i began the process but unfortunately i didn't and now it leaves me trying to guess how bad my teeth were before i started. they weren't that bad because i don't smoke, but i do drink coffee. i don't even pay attention to how long i have them on but i need to because my teeth get super sensitive after i take them off. they hurt so bad that it almost seems unbearable, and they hurt even if i'm sitting here on the computer, i don't even have to be eating for them to hurt. but overall i would suggest that people with really sensitive teeth, don't try this because it will make them 10X more sensitive.

This is by far the best whitening product that I have used. The strips stick to your teeth so much better then any of the other ones that I have used. I just use them for a week every 4-6 months to maintain whitening. I do not have gum/teeth sensitivity from using these.
They are pricey, about $45 a box at the drugstore. I buy mine on ebay, I got two boxes for $40.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Oily, Fair, Cool Hair: Red, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Hazel
LOVE THIS PRODUCT! Better than zoom. My friend paid quite a bit and my teeth are as white if not whiter. Plus she had MAJOR sensitivity. I did the 30 min for 14 days and now do it once a month to mantain. My HG!
