Time out from beauty for a few minutes! Let’s talk about tooth sensitivity today. I know I am not the only one who has to deal with sensitive teeth – that painful OUCH from biting or drinking something ice-cold, it’s so annoying right? It’s not all the time but it does hurt. So, when CVS and Crest offered me the opportunity to try the new Crest Sensi-Stop Strips™ designed to reduce tooth sensitivity for up to a month at a time, I was game for it. With the holiday season upon us, anything that can help prevent tooth sensitivity issues get in the way of enjoying all those wonderful holiday meals & treats is surely worth checking out!
Crest Sensi-Stop Strips™ are thin, flexible transparent strips that contain an active ingredient used by dental professionals. Unlike toothpaste, Crest® Sensi-Stop™ Strips are applied directly to sensitive areas, providing targeted delivery of the key ingredient that allows for longer contact time on the surface of the tooth. Within minutes, strips build a lasting barrier that helps stop sensitivity pain by blocking tubules, relieving symptoms of tooth sensitivity for up to 30 days.
How do Crest Sensi-Stop Strips™ work?
Crest Sensi-Stop Strips contain dipotassium oxalate desensitizing gel on one side. The unique soft-touch strip is designed to cover the outer gumline of your sensitive teeth for just 10 minutes, giving the special ingredient time to build a lasting barrier right where it is needed to stop sensitivity pain for up to a month! Yes, you read that correctly. A whole month of relief, without any additional products needed!
Benefits of Crest Sensi-Stop Strips™
- Unlike sensitivity relief toothpaste, the strip is able to stay on your teeth longer, providing targeted application and contact time for immediate pain relief.
- Convenient size and contoured, flexible edges of the strips allow for easy use and application where you need relief.
- Delivers the right amount of the special ingredient every time – no measuring or guesswork required.
- If you have more than one sensitive area, you can apply a strip to each area.
- They are safe and effective when used as directed and do not damage the enamel.

So, how was my experience with the Crest Sensi-Stop Strips™? I admit I was not competely sure at first that a strip can help with my tooth sensitivity but now that I have used the product, I think it does! I have one spot on the bottom left side of my mouth that usually gives me trouble i.e. pain and sensitivity so I applied the strip there. Application is easy, you just need to place and stick half of the strip over the gum and half over the sensitive tooth, let it sit for 10 minutes and you are done! You can’t rinse, eat or drink for 30 minutes after application.
I have noticed a definite decrease in sensitivity for that particular tooth since the quick 10 minute application of the strip. Cold drinks and ice cream have not bothered me, and I didn’t feel any pain. It’s only been a few days and I am really hoping the sensitivity relief lasts for about a month as promised!
If you also suffer from tooth sensitivity, Crest Sensi-Stop Strips™ are absolutely worth trying out. With these easy to use strips, you can be prepared to indulge in your favorite holiday treats without a trip to the dentist’s office…you really can’t beat that!
