    I use the mouthwash, and it works awesome! Especially paired with a whitening toothpaste.

    Your dinner looks like mine! Love adding color as summer is about to hit. Its hard to find good produce in MN in the winter ๐Ÿ™

    I drink too much coffee; I think my teeth are just doomed.
    When I left home today, I was sure to clean out the freezer while I was around. Of course, in that case I was eating ice cream and not veggies ๐Ÿ˜‰

    My only additional recommendation is to use Sensitive Toothpaste while you’re using white strips. It will help ensure that you don’t have any sensititviity issues especially if you choose to use them daily.

    I used a similar kit before our wedding and it worked wonders!! My teeth were super sensitive though, but it was nothing that a bit of sensodyne couldn’t fix!

    oh yes for my wedding! They so work ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m always so impressed that you can keep so much dessert around and have so much control! Thin mints and Edy’s! I’d be in trouble. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have used strips before and they are awesome!!! I haven’t tried Crest strips though.
    You did really good with dinner considering your options!!! I am not nearly as creative as you!

    I’ve used them a lot, and I have had great luck with them! They all (for the most part) include the same ingredients so even the cheap off brands work just as well!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love okra!! Btw, yes I have used the whitenin strips before and work great. I try to do it every 6 months or so right after a good dental cleaning.

    yeah I have used them–they work!

    Actually, I use the cheaper Target brand which works just as good as Crest imo!

    I’ve never used whitening products before – I have sensitive teeth and worry these would make them more sensitive ๐Ÿ™

    Isn’t it amazing what kind of random, but yummy concoctions one can come up with when the fridge and pantry are getting slightly bare-looking?!?! Some of my best creations have been made!!!

    I’ve used Crest Whitestrips before and definitely noticed a difference. They made my gums sensitive though. It wasn’t painful but uncomfortable for sure.

    Crest Whitestrips are the best! They really do work, if you keep up with them every 6 months or once a year.

    I definitely don’t recommend them for ppl with sensitive teeth! The pain after just using one strip wakes me up in the middle of the night. It’s awful!

    I’ve tried strips before but the taste of the strips are disgusting..and my teeth are too sensitive. I used the Colgate Iso-active toothpaste and saw a HUGE difference in the coloring of my teeth.

    Also, I haven’t been to the dentist in years and went last week. A basic cleaning did WONDERS. I was amazed…not sure how often you go to the dentist though.

    Hmm if these work out for you I might have to try them. I get regular cleanings and use whitening toothpaste, but my love of tea (and coffee, and sugar) means my smile is not exactly pearly white either.

    I fully endorse Crest Whitestrips! And I actually like the taste haha. at least of the originals. I used them for my HS graduation 5 years ago and I still have the whitest teeth in my family, regardless of coffee/red wine drinking!!

    Any kind of whitening seems to make my teeth far to sensitive to make it work it.

    I find it kinda funny that your empty fridge looks an awful lot like my version of a full fridge… weird.

    I am a big fan of the white strips. But I also have really sensitive teeth. So when I’m whitening them for a certain reason, I just do a set every other day for a week or so. Otherwise, I just use them once a week or every other week for a little “touch up”. It seems to work well…

    I’ll be interested to read about your results with the crest whitestrips! A few years ago, I tried using the original Whitestrips for about a week but found they made my already-sensitive teeth super sensitive to cold…which is NOT good, considering I love to eat ice cream! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’ve used them before. I liked the result! I’m just not usually inclined to spend money on them, and I worry that it hurts my teeth.

    i’ve used the rembrandt 2hr kit and its AMAZING. i’ve never used crest strips, but the listerine ones work well too.

    I think you’ll have great results with those strips. I’m a coffee drinker and I bought a kit to have around in case my teeth need a little refresher every few months.

    Pretty good meal in your freezer! I have a feeling I could live off mine for at least a week!

    I’ve used the strips before, but the trick is once your teeth are whiter you have to work to keep them that way. I was a coffee drinker for so long there was no way I could keep my teeth super white with those.

    A stocked freezer is key for when you can’t get to the grocery store or to supplement when try to use up all the fresh produce in your fridge before going out of town. I need to be better about stocking my freezer. Luckily a trip to Costco today temporarily solved our problem. I used to use Crest White Strips – they work great. Right now I have a cheap drug store knock off and I don’t think it does anything. Time to get some Crest strips!

    How funny! I blogged about my Crest Whitening strips a couple days ago! I’m about 1/2 way done with the complete process, and my teeth are sparkling!


    Fun blog!

    Actually, I’m using my kit right now! It took some getting use to but now I have to remember that they are still in my mouth! And, that was only after three or four days. You will like them.

    As a student, I see a treasure trove of meals in your fridge! It totally isn’t empty to us starvin’ students, hehe.

    I tried a kit for whiter teeth a few years ago. It was a generic brand (Life) by Shoppers Drug Mart. I did notice a difference but I didn’t finish the pack because I simply forgot!

    I am so envious! We can’t get the crest strips over in the UK and when my boss was in NY with work she didn’t manage to find them for me :o(

    I’ve never tried over the counter whitner, though I once had a dentist whiten one tooth when I was little!
    I love how colourful your dinner is, very pretty ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ve never used that kind of stuff to make my teeth whiter but that’s only because I can’t find it around here! I totally would if I could. ๐Ÿ™‚

    ๐Ÿ™‚ I love how your version of an empty fridge is my version of a fully stocked one! Ahh… the life of a college student ๐Ÿ™‚ You always come up with the most unique food combos. I love your creativity!
    I will be interested to read about your experience with the whitening strips. I have always worried that they would make my teeth sensitive to temps.

    You always do a good job of coming up with a meal on the fly! I love Crest White strips- they work super well. I used them in College, but haven’t used them since.

    I just bought that same kit! I want to use it prior to my wedding. Hope it works well for you – I’ll be looking forward to that third day review ๐Ÿ™‚

    I LOVE the whitestrips! I’m certain they will help. The only problem is that they sometimes hurt my teeth. ๐Ÿ™

    I used them before and definitely saw whitening results, but I couldn’t make it through the entire course of application due to serious sensitivity issues. While they were on my teeth, I’d have shooting pains in my front teeth. However, the sensitivity went away quickly. If you can tolerate the application, you should be fine.

    No need to “dig” into the freezer when you’ve got all that ice cream right in the front. Did someone say dinner?

    The crest whitestrips are amazing…if you stick to the “schedule” anyway…it’s kind of a pain to use them 2 times a day for 14 days. But you do see awesome results!

  44. runeatdatesleep

    Can’t wait to hear the results of the strips! I used the brush-on whitening stuff before, and I noticed it made my gums recede.

    Awesome looking dinner!

    I’ve used the Crest White Strips a few times and always see great results. I even used them right before I got married and was really happy with how white my teeth got!

    i couldn’t tell much idfference when I used the strips, but that was a few years ago, now they have so many different new kinds!

    Your freezer looks like mine! I’ve tried to whiten my teeth twice- once with Target strips and they turned my teeth orange, then just the other day with Rembrandt 2 hr trays- all they did was make my teeth spotty. ๐Ÿ™

    My husband and I both use the whitestrips 2x a year and we get A LOT of compliments on our smiles. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m using the same kit right now!! I’ve found they they really are good and sticky, but you definitely have to brush your teeth afterwards to get all of the goo off. Also, They make my teeth feel pretty sensitive, so I would suggest using something like Sensodyne while you’re using the strips if that happens to you!

    I always want to buy those kits but they are expensive! Can’t wait to hear your review!

    I use Crest White Strips but I don’t think they are the new and improved version .

    They work so I keep using them but they do have some cons:
    – They make me drool a lot . So much so I have to keep a tissue by my mouth.
    – cant talk while using them
    Be careful that the bleach doesnt get on your lips. I got a good reaction that way.

  53. Meredith
    April 6, 2010

    My husband and I did the Crest Whitestrips before our wedding last year and they worked great! I would drool and couldn’t talk while they were in but that’s the only downside. They became noticeably whiter.

    I whitened my teeth a lot in college with the brush gel and the strips, and saw great results. I haven’t done it in years and think they have had a lasting affect (aka: probably stripped off some enamel).

    I have used them one time only. But I want to use them cuz my teeth need a little whitening, but they are soooo expensive!
