These strips are supposed to whiten teeth in 14 days. They dissolve on teeth in 5-10 minutes. They taste terrible & actually after using them twice in one day they left my mouth dry & tasting terrible for a few days before it went away. I WOULD NOT recommend these. YUCK.

I always want to snack at 9:00 p.m. -- you know, right when my husband breaks out the potato chips. Instead, I put in a set of whitening strips, which guarantees that I can't eat for 30 minutes. By that time, the craving has passed...and my teeth are whiter, too!
If whitening strips make your teeth too sensitive, use them only every two days.
Most people think it's bad for you, but here's what it does: It forces you to think ahead of time what you will eat, and then pack it and take it with you. You can't change your mind for something less healthy, you can't go back to the fridge for "just one more" and you're limited to finger foods,
like cold meat strips, cheese sticks, small crackers, veggie strips and small fruits, like berries.
After reading a review about the best over the counter teeth whitening product, I tried Arm & Hammer Whitening Booster. I could personally tell a difference in 3 weeks and it keeps getting better. My dental hygenist noticed too. You add it to your regular toothpaste. It has 3 X's more whitening than other over the counter and less hassle than strips. 334
