Crest White strips are very good but it all depends on what is staining your teeth. If you go to the US just pick up the top premium ones, worth the extra. They have just started to be on sale in this country but like all whitening (legally anyway) you have to buy them from a dentist. the crest site has a link to the ones in most areas.

sold now in the UK under the Oral B brand which is Crest in the US.

I would love to know aswell!!! I have seen so many and the crest ones keep popping up. had enough of so called whitening toothpastes if something like this really works and I can obtain a Hollywood smile for all to envy then it's definitely worth buying.

Yes, they work. They are however banned from being sold in the UK for having such a high percentage of hydrogen peroxide. Our laws only allow dental practices to use such high percentage.

You can find websites in which you can buy from them however I find them to be very expensive. Now trading standards have told eBay to ensure they are not sold on the UK marketplace you cannot find them easily here. However if you visit eBay.com instead you can find many sellers overseas willing to post to the UK which is perctly legal providing they are for personal use and no resale. I tend to order from the US and not Hong Kong ect.. just over fear of them being fakes but I honestly haven't done much research in that.

Anyway, I hope this helped and I should probably highlight. Never use the gel for longer than the instructions state and even if it sounds silly, after the time is up I would get a toothbrush and lightly brush your teeth. If any residue it left on for a prolonged period it was cause severe pain! Also ensure you do not use if you have holes in your teeth otherwise that too will cause pain.

P.S This is just my personal experience and I am not in anyway a professional. I suggest seeking further advice to be honest.

No problem. I don't have a link at hand however I have explained where the best and cheapest place is to buy them from, which is eBay.com and search for US sellers that will post to the UK.

This will not be as effective due to the strength of hydrogen peroxide: "Innovative polyethylene strip surface contains a fine layer of 5% hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) gel (equivalent to 15% carbamide peroxide)". Hence why they are legal in the UK.

and only legal by being sold by a dentist, the US do have a similar strength ones but legally you cant by the stronger ones here. though doesn't stop them being sold.

Crest Whitestrips Supreme are the best available (as far as I know), they're the ones I've bought numerous times and they give great results from the very first usage. I used to buy from ebay but Amazon US has some competitive prices.

I tried a Crest 3D Whitening variety once and was rather disappointed that it wasn't as potent (can't remember the exact name, as there's a dizzying amount of Whitestrips out there).

Here's a reply I added a few weeks ago, assume the same sellers will ship to the UK, haven't tried recently. http://www.hotukdeals.com/ask/crest-whitestrips-uk-2416105?p=27607903

You can buy them from Amazon US - I got Crest Whitestrips Supreme (not sure if there's an alternative now as there's so many different types available). Blurb from Amazon says, "Crest Whitestrips Supreme has 100mg of gel with 14% hydrogen peroxide = 14mg of hydrogen peroxide per upper strip. Crest Whitestrips Professional has 200mg of gel with 6.5% hydrogen peroxide per upper strip. Crest Whitestrips Supreme is the most effective of the Crest Whitening Strips."
Just one treatment with these White Strips is enough for most, they are pretty strong.
I bought from ABC Wholesale though they don't seem to ship to the UK now. http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00L6F6KNE/ref=dp_olp_new_mbc?ie=UTF8&condition=new (full box of 84 strips)

That's what I said in my other comment...

They have been stopping people selling the Crest strips in the UK, as I say they no longer sell them on eBay.co.uk because they were all removed. The sites which keep cropping up like "ukcrestwhitestrips.co.uk" as someone mentioned above is no longer active, it was shut down and now links back to the official Crest website. You are always going to find sites though that sell them in the UK illegally though but they are normally overpriced anyway.

Some of the Crest strips contain over 15% hydrogen peroxide, which is still much stronger than the Oral B ones you have given a link to which you say are now legally sold in the UK, by dentists of course. Which is why I stated that they wouldn't be as effective.
