    My dentist did a free laser whitening treatment on me because he felt bad for pushing back my appointment 5 times. I think it normally cost $300. It really got my teeth white. You should consider that to see drastic results rather than buying those teeth whitening products that might not give you the results you want. I don't know much about the products so can't help ya there.

    I have tried the whitening strips by Crest. They work but not as much as advertised.

    The only thing that ever whitened my teeth effectively was a strong Sonicare toothbrush matched with no coffee, tea, or anything kind of brownish.

    I think putting a bunch of chemical whiteners in your toothpaste does more long-term damage than good. Putting those strips on your gums is harsh.

    A bit of self discipline is cheaper and goes a lot further. And it's more natural.

    ... and I defy any of you to tell me that having a tooth that looks like a fluorescent bulb is natural.

    Same here.

    Speak to your dentist about it, they'll help more than anybody on here.icon_biggrin.gif

    No coffee! I think I'd rather just lay down and die.

    Crest whitestrips. I used the pro effects ones.
    They're the best. (I said "used" cause i did it once in the US. I'm from France and we don't have those here pshh)

    The Crest 3D Whitening strips worked for me. BUT, they do make your teeth a bit sensitive.


    And they aren't drastic, they're natural over the time of using them, but they lasted about 3-4 months for me once done. icon_smile.gif

    "Nutrition and Physical Degeneration" by Weston A. Price

    Read this book. Its interesting its talks about how we don't need to brush our teeth to obtain white teeth. Price studies indigenous tribes, and how they have perfect teeth all though their diet. icon_smile.gif

    Just don't make them that chemical white color. I think that some people go too far.

    A good friend on RJ who is the son of a dentist suggested rinsing with peroxide and brushing with baking soda. I do this in addition to alternating with toothpaste (Crest or Rembrandt - even others) and I've got a great white smile.

    I do! But I know of nobody who has better dental hygiene and discipline than YOU. We should all take as good care of our teeth & gums as you do.

    I spoke to my dentist about this once and he pulled out a set of chips that are used for matching enamel colors. My teeth were actually toward the upper whitish range, though I had not thought so.

    These days I use StainAway, but you should not use it inside your mouth.

    I would check carefully with the dentist to be certain that anything you use is not going to weaken the enamel on your teeth. Cosmetic whiteness may not be as 'healthy' as it is made out to be.
