Crest White Strips have come a long way since they were first introduced several years ago. Crest 3D Whitestrips Professional Effects uses a no-slip strip that seals so well that it even allows people to drink water while they are wearing it. The Professional Effects series boasts that it creates results that is just as good as in-office whitening procedures such as laser whitening which can cost up to $500. The 10% hydrogen peroxide based gel produces noticeable whitening within at least 3 days of treatment, but many people say they see improvement after just the first use. Professional results are produced after 7 days of use, and full results are achieved after 20 days of use. Professional Effects strips use a “stain shield” technology that not only whitens teeth but also helps protect them from future stain.


  • 30 minutes wear time makes them one of the shorter whitening strip systems available. Some competitor products have to be worn for 45-60 minutes each day for the same results.
  • 1-week duration with results in as little as 3 days. Professional results in 1 week, full results in 20 days. Short duration of treatment is easier for most people to keep up with since professional whitening results are within 7 days.
  • Highest level of whitening available from Crest products.


  • Strips adhere to teeth very well, so it could possibly remove loose restorations or mobile teeth.
  • Care must be taken when applying strips to make sure they are placed on the proper teeth without added exposure to delicate gum tissue by shaping the strip around the teeth with your finger.


Crest White Strips have reworked their entire product line and the 3D Professional Effects line is better than ever before. The strips adhere easily to teeth and do not slip off like they did years ago. They stay in place easier and even allow people to drink water at the same time as wearing them. The strips are sized for upper and lower teeth, with lower strips now offering more coverage.

The Crest 3D Professional Effects whitening strips complement other 3D whitening line products like the Crest 3D White Multi-Care Whitening Rinse and 3D White Vivid Toothpastes. Combining these products help to transform smiles as much as possible while protecting teeth from future stain build up.
