What's the name of those Crest whitening strips everyone raves about?

I used them a few years ago and they were pretty good but can't remember the name. Anyone know please? And where to buy from? brew

America. Whitening stuff that does anything is not legal in the UK unless done by a dentist, because you can stuff up your teeth and gums. The packets lie but all beauty products do.

The Americans like the horse with a piano in its mouth look, hence the ridiculous things you see on the slebs.

eBay sells them

Careful of your gums!

I know Special. Maybe I should get some gel from the dentist. I still have my teeth moulds from when I had it done properly years ago. No chance of looking like a Hollywood Horse. I have a small Madonna gap. grin They'd be horrified.

Can you remember the name Queen? Thank you. There seems to be a few types with similar names.

They're just called crest whitening strips - they're in a blue packet

Make sure you get the premium or premium plus ones though if you want to notice a difference rather than just the regular strength ones.

Thank you both. smile Think it was the premium bit I couldn't remember.

I have used both the strips and the whitening trays and get a much better result with the overnight trays. I use Opalescence 10% which you can buy at dentists or online. I found that my mouth kept frothing up using the strips and I swallowed a lot of the gunk. The trays keep everything in place lol!
