I keep seeing Crest Whitestrips in the stores. Do they work as well as dental teeth whitening?

Well, it depends on what you’re actually asking. If you’re wanting to know if they will whiten your teeth, then the answer is yes. If you’re asking if they work as well as professional teeth whitening, then the answer is no.
It is not nearly as strong a whitening solution because it is sold over the counter. It would take many, many boxes to get your teeth as white as your dentist could. Also, the strips only cover just a few of your front teeth. You’ll have visible teeth that don’t get whitened.
There is a solution to that though. You could put more than one strip on at a time on each arch in order to cover all the teeth that you’ll want whitened.
