The Crest Pro strips seem to work well.They have been given high marks from Consumer reports and cause minimal sensitivity.

i heard that home made mix of baking soda and peroxide work. what's your view on this?

Expert:  Dr. Katz replied 1 year ago.

Baking soda and peroxide is a great toothpaste mix.It not only helps your gums but is a disinfectant.The peroxide can give you some whitening but it does not stay on the teeth long enough to bring about a rapid result.The strips keep the peroxide in contact with the teeth for twenty minutes.
