In-office teeth whitening can be expensive, and although over-the-counter teeth brighteners can also get up there, they're much more affordable than taking a trip to the dentist's chair. Women's Health editors love Crest Whitening products, which are typically pretty pricey. Right now, they're available at a pretty major discount even after Amazon Prime Day 2023. The mega sale ended yesterday, July 12, but Crest whitening products are still up to 66 percent off.
Whenever I'm in a rush and need to brighten my teeth, I always opt for Crest Whitening Emulsions. I swipe them on in seconds, and they whiten my teeth instantly. Although it's not a whitestrip, I love how easy the product is to use. It sits on the teeth for a few hours without any sour taste or slimy feel and you never even have to rinse it out.
Several Amazon reviewers also love the emulsions. "I love this product!" says one. "It offered great results in a week without my feeling any sensitivity or issues at all, which I often get with other whitening products."
If you have an hour to hang out while you wear your strips, opt for the Crest 3D Whitestrips Professional Kit. According to the brand, it supposedly removes 14 years of teeth stains for a whiter smile, delivering professional-level results. My mom is a huge fan of these whitestrips, too. She wears them around the house while cooking or gardening (what an efficient woman!). They also don't make her teeth feel sensitive, which is a huge selling point for her.
One reviewer even says that her dentist always compliments her teeth thanks to these whitestrips. "I have had people, including my dentist, tell me how white my teeth are, and I’m 74 years-old," she says. "These work really well for me and are simple to apply. What happens after the strips are removed? You find yourself compelled to smile a lot at your reflection in the mirror!"
