What do I do if the strips keep coming off?
Look into a mirror to properly apply your Crest 3D White Whitestrips, making sure the strip is in good contact with the teeth. If the strips begin to slip, close your mouth and create suction to tighten the strips up again. Don't touch the strips excessively with your tongue. You can try gently tucking the strip in the spaces between your teeth with your fingernail, then folding it behind your teeth. You can also try Crest 3D White Whitestrips Classic Vivid or Professional Effects which have Advanced Seal technology—specially designed to strongly adhere to your teeth.
I dropped a strip in the sink after pulling from the backing. Can I still use it?
No, It's not recommended. Start over with a new strip.
How do I remove gel left on my teeth after using strips?
Since the left over gel isn’t harmful, you can do any of the following:
- Rinse your mouth with water
- Wipe the gel off your teeth
- Brush it off
- Leave it, as it will dissolve eventually
What if I have trouble removing Crest 3D White Whitestrips Classic Vivid or Professional Effects?
Crest 3D White Whitestrips Classic Vivid and Professional Effects are uniquely designed to securely hold the whitening gel onto your teeth where it matters most. If it seems like you’re having trouble removing the strip, try peeling the strip off the back of your teeth to loosen the grip then peel the rest of strip off your teeth.
