I'm using a strip now. It's my first time. I've had them in for about an hour and i've been experiencing quick, sharp pains in just one of my teeth. It's extremely painful, but it stops after a few seconds. I don't know if this is normal...
(the rating is not very accurate because I'm not finished using them. I also don't know the original price.)

First of all im german so my english might not be perfect, just that you know so yeah I was convinced from the positive reviews on amazon so i ordered it on ebay and got it pretty cheap compared to others who paid like 70 (!) $ for this product. Right after that i found this site and was horrified about tge reviews and the pain that most of the people suffered from but it wasnt possible to return it so i figured a methode how to prepare my teeth for the bleaching since i didnt want to throw the stripes away. My teeth arent sensitive except for one tooth. So I bought the GC tooth mousse which i used like 10 days before the bleaching after brushing my teeth on the evening. Its recommended to use it before and after bleaching your teeth it was even more expensive than the stripes but oh well i wanted to give it a try. And i bought listerine and sensodyne toot paste in case my teeth would start hurting afterwards. So yesterday I put on the stripes with a friend who also tried them. And surprisingly it did NOT hurt. Neither during the 2 hours nor afterwards . I did experience a slight twinge a couple times a couple hours after i got the stripes off my teeth but i wouldnt consider that as pain since it was really minimal. Right after i got the stripes off i brushed my teeth with sensodyne and rinse with listerine a couple times untill i went to bed. Now over 24 hours later i still cant complain about any pain. I dont exactly know if its because of the preperation and everything but im really happy it didnt hurt at all because i was really scared it would hurt. Okay so that is the one thing but the other thing is the result. I'm really disappointed my teeth maybe got 1 shade whiter but thats it. my friends also couldnt note a visible change so i would not recommend this product to anyone. I wasnt expecting the hollywood white smile but man that was just a waste of money and time.

I used these, and they performed as expected, but I did end up in agony for the entire day... tried advil, tylenol, and orajel, with not much lasting relief... UNTIL... I remembered the commercial for COLGATE sensitive pro-relief toothpaste... The relief really was instant, and I was mad I didn't go out and pick it up sooner after suffering all day. I would maybe use them again, as long as I had that toothpaste in my drawer, and I was going to be able to use it all day if need be.

Wow, I'm glad I'm not the only one! I thought there was possibly something wrong with my tooth enamel (like worn or thin). I used these strips last night, and left them on for the two hours. After nightmares about my teeth falling out, I awoke at 3am in agony! I'd rather live with freaking ORANGE teeth than use this product again. I've used the 1/2 hour-at-a-time Crest Whitestrips with very little sensitivity. This is intolerable. I've been popping so many Advil I'm afraid my kidneys are gonna fail. Anbesol, aspirin, ibuprofen...no relief. And I'm a vain woman, but nothing is worth with this pain, let me tell you. My sadomasochistic (not really) friend wants to try them, but I hesitate to even let her have the remaining two treatments...I'd feel kinda guilty, as if I were the one supplying the heroin for the overdose. Don't buy this product!!! The pain is not worth the reward. The reward part is TBD, seeing as how I can't open my mouth long enough to take a good look. :-(

FOR FIRST TIME USERS:

for the ppl who is whitening their teeth for the very first time, i suggest you use regular crest strips FIRST. The ones you wear for only 30 min a day....bc it has the same "pain" feeling everyones talking about....if you can tolerate those, then you can tolerate the 2 hour crest strip

ive personally have used the regular ones so i already know the feeling. The feeling for me is very tolerable because im use to it. Its NOT painful to me at all, just a lil sensitive. And its also a great way to lose weight haha, bc its so sensitive you tend not to eat or drink as much :)

I used the 2hr crest strip last nite and accidentaly fell asleep. I had it on for 6 hours instead of 2...and my teeth are sensitive but not painful like everyones talking about. But then again im use to the feeling bc ive use regular crest strips. My teeth are noticeably whiter haha...i wasnt intending to keep it on for that long..

Hope that helps everyone..if your scared and its your first time, plz use the regular crest strips FIRST...it has the same exact "feeling" as the 2hour one but less potent. If you can tolerate that..your good to use the 2 hour one.

One word can best describe this product: PAINFUL. Throughout the two hours that I had the strips on my teeth, I kept feeling sharp pains on my teeth. However, I was determined to keep the strips on regardless of the amount of pain.

I must admit that my teeth were much whiter after I removed the strips. The amount of pain I had to endure throughout the rest of the day (AND the next day) wasn't worth the amount of whitening I experienced.

I can truly say that I'd never, ever use this product again.

They are FANTASTIC - no pain and after two treatments the comments at work really surprised me - people are saying what beautiful teeth I have.

HIGHLY recommended and if you feel pain they are just not for you.


Using them every three months for one year has made a noticibly improvement

I would not recommend this product at all. I wish I had read the reviews before hand. The reason why I went to this site was to see if it is normal to experience pain afterwards. It didn't hurt until after I took them off. This sucks. How long is this going to hurt us my question.

I am very disappointed with this product. I used them today and my teeth are not whiter but are way more sensitive. I have a birthday party to go to and probably won't be able to eat anything. This pain is HORRIBLE. It's ongoing and making me tear up. Nothing is working, pain pills, orajel, NOTHING! /:
I STRONGLY DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!!

Strange. I have used it twice in one month and had no pain! A little sensitivity while it was on but I am happy with the results & had no pain. & I generally have sensitive teeth in general..

I do find that the results for ONE TIME use isn't that great... I was only happy with the results after the second time I used it. & I used it earlier then it was recommended on the box.

Love it though!

I decided to give these a trial when a set came with my 3D White toothpaste. After about 15-20 minutes of wear, I began to experience shooting pains from my tooth to the top of my gums. It wasn't pleasant. I figured it would only happen once so the first time that it was experienced I decided to ignore it but then it happened again a few minutes later I decided I wasn't going to keep them on any longer. It was painful although after 20 minutes of wear i did notice my teeth were already whiter. I will NOT be buying the full product and I would suggest purchasing it either if you aren't a masochist.

I was planning on getting Zoom but had read a lot online about pain from that, so when I saw these on sale I thought I would try them first.

They were very easy to use, although I was a little confused by the different sized strips, I wasn't sure which one was which and there was nothing to indicate, so I just used the longer one on my upper teeth.
They went on very easily, and stayed on with no issues.

After I had them on I went online and found this review site. Reading about all the painful experiences I began to get a little scared. My teeth aren't super sensitive, but they can be a little sensitive at times. As well, one of my front canines is chipped on the back. I started wondering if I should perhaps take them off but I kept them on for the full two hours (8pm-10pm) because I really wanted to see if they would work.

I experienced no pain or sensitivity while the strips were on. I took them off and used Tom's alcohol free mouthwash, then brushed my teeth with Sensodyne. A little later I felt one small twinge in one of my lower teeth. I wouldn't even classify it as pain, and it lasted maybe 1-2 seconds. I was going to take advil before I went to bed because of all the reviews I read about people waking up in the night with pain, but I forgot and went to bed and slept all night. Woke up this morning and had completely forgotten I had even done it! Brushed my teeth with 3d white toothpaste. Its now almost 2pm and I am still fine with no pain or sensitivity at all, able to eat, drink, talk, no problems.

I noticed that a lot of the reviews that said it was painful also mentioned they had done other teeth whitening treatments before, perhaps that is part of the problem? This was my first time whitening my teeth in any way.

As for the whitening, it was a little disappointing. I do see a difference, but it is pretty minor. I am tempted to use them again as I think one more treatment would give me the effect I desired. My teeth aren't horrible but I am a very light smoker and they are more yellow than I would like (I hate super white fake looking teeth-thats not what I am after!). I'm a little afraid of the damage it could do to my teeth though so I will probably just wait the three months, or I might even try the Zoom like I had originally planned.

Anyway...if they were less expensive I would recommend them. They should sell them in single treatments instead of one years supply...I will likely misplace the strips before I ever use the rest! And the packaging is extremely excessive for such a small product...very very wasteful. I know the paper is recyclable but its still wasteful to use all that ink/energy/plastic to produce several times more packaging than the product actually needs, for that reason alone I probably wouldn't buy them again.

I read these reviews prior to using the product. I was scared out of my mind. Therefore I only kept them on for about an hour. It's been about an hour since I took them off. I'm feeling some sensitivity in my bottom teeth. I'm extremely nervous about the pain I may experience. I took 1100 mg ibuprofen and I'm praying. :/

This is the worst product ever. It HURTS your teeth. How this got approved to be on the market is beyond me! I wish I would have done my research before I tried it. It's been over 12 hours since I used the product and my teeth still hurts.

The product was like glue sticking and pulling on my enamel after the recommended 2 hours of use!

I put the strips on at 9 pm and took the off at 11 pm. I had a sharp pain one time while they were on, They did hurt when I took them off. But 6 am rolls around and i'm woken up my extreme pain in my mouth. I'm in tears it hurts so bad. Ive had a get, gotten tats, and a car accident. This seriously hurts worse. My teeth arent even that much whiter. NOT WORTH IT. I just took some meds hoping it will work!!

I wanted to whiten my teeth before having dental work to bond a front tooth I chipped a few days ago in an accident. I didn't have time to use the two week whitening strips, so decided to try these. They were easy to use, stayed on securely and caused no pain whatsoever (even on my chipped tooth). Mt teeth are noticeably whiter and I couldn't be happier.
