teeth whitening

Anyone used anything to whiten their teeth other than paying the dentist to have them bleached? Did it work?

  • I have a friend who's a dental assistant who got me a teeth whitening set. It's this gel you squeeze into a form that fits over your teeth overnight. It did seem to make my teeth whiter, but it also made my whole mouth HURT. I told her and she said that's normal. I did it a couple times and then stopped because I felt like I was abusing myself for vanity! LOL!

  • ive used crest premium whiting strips worked okay but not as well as you would think by the way they are advertised but a good thing was that i didnt have any tooth sensitivity after using them

  • adelicious i did the same thing with the gel and tray from the dentist, after a few times it just got TOO painful....white teeth are not worth that kind of pain...AHH i get chills thinking about how awful it was. i just use whitening tooth paste now, my teeth aren't bright white but i'm not willing to go through the pain to make them bright white

  • the rembrandt two hour white is amazing. my teeth are so white from doing it. i did it for two hours and now i do it once or twice a month for maintenance. you will get some sensitivity from it but i use sensodyne to take care of that, which also works great!
