How to Kick Stains to the Curb

Show of hands: who ever used first generation whitening strips?

So. Many. Hands.

How many of you HATED them?

Huh – all the hands.

I am right there with you.

I shudder when I remember trying to get the strips positioned on my teeth correctly, only to have them slip and slide like a soaped-up otter trying to open a clam shell once they were on.


I loved the results, yet hated the process.

Matter-of-fact, I never bought them again.

Not any more.

I’ve been considering the new and improved strips for some time and thought I’d go one more round with them.

~ These new strips stick like magic. You position them, stick them and forget about them for the 30-minutes their working.

~ My teeth are visibly whiter (just like their copy states repeatedly!).

~ I am actually, as I write this article, wearing them. You can go about your daily (at home) activities and not worry they shift or sag.

~ My teeth/gums were not sensitive throughout the process.


~ They STICK to your teeth and can be a bit tough to get off. Like wrestlin’ a toddler for the remote: you’ll get it eventually, but you’re gonna have to work for it.

~ There is a bit of clean-up afterwards. Because they stick so well, there is some residue that needs attention.

~ The classic vivid kit (10 treatments) didn’t seem to get my teeth POPPIN’ white like the old strips, but they removed old coffee stains and I was happy with the results.

~ I forgot to take before and afters. Boooooo.

Worth the cost? Yes. The Classic Vivid is extremely affordable, even without a coupon (if you can find one).

Worth the trouble and time? Yes.

Favorite feature: the no-slip design.

Running a close second: my gums weren’t sore from the treatment.

If you’re looking to try an at-home, easy to use, whitening system, this one may be just what you’re looking for – especially if you ever used/hated the first generation strips.

Go. Upgrade. Whiten!

  1. I strongly disliked the first generation whitening strips, too! They were a mell of a hess!

  2. Never tried these will have to check them out. Found you on Grandma’s Briefs Link Party.

  3. Thanks for the review! I used the old style before and wasn’t a fan. These seem great! Thanks for sharing at the Make Life Pretty Monday link party! Hope to see you next week!

  4. I would love to whiten my teeth but have never tried. The thought of putting the trays in my mouth makes me gag just thinking about it. I might need to give this a try.
