Default Crest White Strips

How do you get them to stay on your teeth? The stupid things feel like they are slipping all over the place

They also make trays that you fill with a bleaching gel. Maybe that would work better for you? I've never used strips or trays, so I don't really know.

I like the Oral B Rembrandt ones because they are thick and gooey and cover more between your teeth.

I'm surprised more people don't use them.[/i]

I love those! They work much better as far as whitening too, I think. I had trouble with the White Strips too.

Has anyone had a problem with their enamel cracking? I had bought some crest white strips premium to try out and then someone on the board mentioned enamel cracking, so I never used them. The last thing I need is to damage my teeth.

Thanks girls, I'll try the Rembrandt ones! This pack was free, but they are such a pain to use I wouldn't buy them again

I like the Rembrandt ones too.

The Crest strips are tricky. You have to be careful not to move your mouth or lips around much when they are on. You can reposition them it they are not too messed up.

I've used whitening strips several times and I haven't had a problem with enamel cracking.

Oh yeah, *I* was the one who asked about the enamel cracking. I forgot about that. I haven't bleached my teeth since then, but I just found an unused box in my house and was like, "Where did this come from?"

Now I remember why I didn't want to use it.

My enamel was cracked already from when they popped off the crappy porcelain brackets I had on my braces, so I wasn't sure if the strips were causing more cracks, or cracks that I hadn't seen before to show up.

I'm going to try it again and see.

I love the White Strips! I don't know why but I never had a problem w/ them slipping. It's so funny though, DH can't even talk when he has them in

Try drying your teeth with paper towels first.
