Squeaky brakes

I've installed a set of pads on 2001 Camry a few months ago. I've lubricated parts as needed, bedded in pads. These are ceramic brake pads and they squeak once in a while. I had owner come back and I've regreased them and it still squeaks once in a while. Anything I can do?
There is treatment that you can spray right onto pad/rotor and its supposed to stop squeaks. I might give it a try.

Main thing with brake pads IMO is to install quality brand name pads. I will not use any house brand pads insisting only on Wagner, Bendix or Raybestos.

They were "brake best select" not the cheapest ones I could find.
I'm almost thinking I should take them off and take them back and exchange for something better.

Did you put antisqueal on the back of the pads when you installed them? Were the rotors turned on this brake job?

you didn't say if you installed new rotors or not..
I'd pull um and exchange them for another same set..
I hate ceramic pads.. no matter whom made them.. yes they last longer but they take the rotors out with them..
most times the noise isn't the pads persay, it's the soft china rotors iron..

No rotors weren't turned, They were in good shape, I don't like turning rotors unless they're warped, have deep gouges, etc. They appear to be original rotors but they're not cheap china made.
I did put anti squeal everywhere in this picture and even piston itself where it contacts pad.

well.. I'd get warranty pads and scuff the rotors.. the rotors looking good, is bad.. they are most likely glazed.. with no crosshatch..
to smooth is as bad as grooved

I've actually been always told that ceramic pads are gentle pads

That has not been my experience at all. FWIW BrakeBest pads are not what I would consider quality pads.

They're ok pads, not comparing them to Hawk or EBC etc. They're adequate for daily driver.
