First of all the chemistry behind crest white strips, do they actually work?

I have a package of Crest White Strips Premium plus my friend gave me from his work they have expired are they still effective after expiration date?

Check what active ingredient is - that's answer to both your questions

Hydrogen peroxide is a strong oxidizer - so it may work. It is also unstable - so they can be not effective after expiration date, or at least less effective.

I would not use it after the expiration date.

Crest White Strips

Hydrogen peroxide decomposes at a fast rate in water, I would still use the product since these strips have Hydrogen Peroxide imbedded in something other than water, however they may not be a great as one which has not exceeded the expiration date. Observe the package , if it seems inflated , than it's probably no good.

My mother swears by them, they definitely work... within the expiration date, at least.
