  • ive starting using pronamel toothpaste. it has whitening effects because it strengthens the enamel on your teeth, making it harder for things that naturally stain the teeth to stain them. ive used crest white strips, but they always slide off my teeth. they did work though, but i think aquafresh trays would probably be better because they dont slide. arm &hammer with baking soda is great too. my dad always suggests just making your own "paste" out of water and baking soda and brushing with it. im too scared to try it though lol

  • Crest White Strips!! I asked my dentist about his teeth-whitening program, he said that the Crest White Strips worked just as good as what he does in his office.

    I also use Peroxide to keep them white after I use the strips, it does help!

  • They all work really well, I've tried a few of them. I can't say one works better than the other, they all work good. I'm a big coffee drinker, so my teeth can get stained. What i find that works the best though, is just dipping my toothbrush in hydrogen peroxide & brushing with that a few times a day. All those teeth whiteners use hydrogen peroxide gel anyway & they're expensive. A bottle of peroxide is a lot cheaper.
