Do You Whiten Your Teeth?

I love having a white, shining smile. I use 3D White toothpaste and mouthwash. I use whitening trays at least every six months and I chew whitening gum.

What do you use?

  • I use whitening toothpaste and mouthwash, and I mix baking soda and water with my toothpaste sometimes and it works really good.

  • I sometimes make a paste with baking soda and peroxide and brush with that. It works well :)

  • Whitening trays and whitener from the dentist - but I only whiten my teeth if I have an interview.

  • I use the strips, toothpaste, and mouthwash. A good smile is one of the first things people notice about you, so I think it's important for my teeth to look good.

  • Last time I did that I had a cracked filling I did not know about, the chemicals seeped in, and destroyed the nerve. I was using whitening strips. Now I use the whitening toothpaste.

  • I agree, Nan. My eye is always drawn directly to the teeth/smile.

  • I don't like the strips. They always make my gums and teeth sore and sensitive.

  • I get crest 3d white strips from costco about 3xs a year. Costco has a 10.00 off coupon every few months.

  • I have a box of strips in the bathroom but I keep forgetting to use them!

  • The last time I used the whitening strips was right before I was fitted for my Invisalign. The orthodontist told me it was eating the enamel off of my teeth, and I haven't used them since.
