What is the difference between Professional Effects and Advanced Vivid?

Two of the most popular Crest 3D Whitestrips products are Professional Effects and Advanced Vivid, however a regular question I get asked is:-

What is the difference between Crest 3D Whitestrips Professional Effects and Advanced Vivid?

The Difference Crest 3D Whitestrips Professional Effects and Advanced VividThese two products were launched as part of the new Crest 3D White Whitestrips range. They are two of the three home teeth whitening kits from within the range that are made from the new ‘advanced seal’ non slip technology.
This is unlike the others that are made from a single layer of whitening strip.
Both kits are made from 4 layers of microfilm that contain the controlled amounts of hydrogen peroxide.
In this case both kits have controlled amounts of 10% hydrogen peroxide on each strip and they are worn for 30 minutes each session.
However here are the main 2 differences:-
1) Crest 3D Whitestrips Professional Effects comes with 6 extra days of whitening strips (20 in total v 14). Therefore Professional Effects are more suitable for darker tooth stains as you get a longer whitening period. 
2) The bottom strip of Professional Effects is slightly longer than Crest 3D Whitestrips Advanced Vivid. So if you have a narrower lower set of teeth then Advanced Vivid would be more suitable.
The difference in price varies from company to company, however we try to keep the differential to about £4 for the extra weeks whitening. Both kits provide very good value for money v a dental whitening.

As a summary, if you have darker yellow stains around the gum line then Professional Effects would be more suitable. If you have pale yellow stains then your choice would be Advanced Vivid.
In both cases it is highly recommended to use a whitening toothpaste such as Crest 3D White Advanced Vivid – Stain Protection as part of the process and your overall oral care. 
If you suffer from tooth sensitivity then the use of a sensitive toothpaste would be advisable.
