Straight, white, and healthy teeth is one of the many aesthetic standards of the world when it comes to physical beauty, a dream that is often elusive and too expensive to achieve if you are not genetically and financially blessed, as it requires numerous treatments from dental clinics that can cost a limb for most people especially those without an applicable insurance. Although there are many dental procedures today that have been made less complicated and more affordable for more people, the reality is not all of the best services are easily available in most places.
The healthcare industry boom in the early 2000s saw a large improvement in the quality of products and access to it around the world, including convenient dental whiteners that significantly reduced the need for dental visits for whitening procedures. From whitening toothpastes and strips to whitening mouthpieces, teeth whitening is now accessible and affordable for more people, although this does not also necessarily mean a compromise in quality since a lot of these products are also known to be effective.
One of the first products to come out of the market with a known ease of use and effectivity is the Crest Whitestrips, which was first released in the market in 2001, back when most dental whitening services can only be obtained from frequent visits to the dentist. Crest teeth whiteners are disposable strips with a bleaching gel, which applies and stays on your teeth through the non-slip strip, which you must keep on for half an hour or so depending on the variety you are using, and are recommended for daily use for best results.
As the competitive market continued to be saturated over the years, Crest’s teeth whiteners remained on the list of the most used and effective teeth whiteners around the world, with its continuous popularity making the product more in demand, which expanded its availability worldwide from in-store counters to online shops, and even dental offices. A wider availability only means better access for more consumers, making it possible for a greater number of people to experience its effectivity and convenience, since these strips can be used at home so costly and potentially far trips to dental clinics can be minimized.
Crest White strips now come in many variety depending on its bleaching strength and recommended length of use, with some varieties that can be worn in as little as 5 minutes once a day, and monthly boosters for those that just want to maintain their already white teeth.
