Teeth Whitening - Page 4

post #46 of 85
I personally thinks that teeth whitening is dangerous for our teeth because it removes the shiny coating from our teeth and we than began to feel hot and cold while eating or drinking.

Ive been using the white strips for a few years now. They work well enough, but what I do is instead of leaving them on for 30 minutes I leave them on for 1 hour. Doing this 2xs a day for 2 weeks is a PITA, but it works pretty good. The problem is they don't cover all your teeth and its a PITA. And it wears off after a few months, so Id do this maybe 3 times a year, again PITA. And they are expensive at $20 a pop. Although there are deals to be had. The first time I tried Crest some dude told me about them and I was skeptical but he told me they had a full money back gaurentee so I got them and they worked! I still got my money back I just lied and said I didn't like them haha...Ive been hooked ever since. I don't like the strips though I prefer the molded kind better they hold their shape longer.

Im gonna try the method Why linked, that looks better.

I recently whitened my teeth. Did the bleaching thingy and sat under a laser which gave me immense pain. They will scratch your teeth surface to increase uptake of the bleach and this will take time to get used to.

I didn't notice dramatic improvement in whiteness as my teeth were only 2 shades away from the whitest natural colour. I was silly and was under the impression that you get celebrity white teeth. Turns out they are enamel surfaces stuck infront of the teeth.

because I lied to a fortune 500 company? and then gave them 10xs more business? I don't think they care. In fact I will bet any money they knew people would do exactly what I did. Its pretty much the first one is free then you get hooked into buying 20 more....Ive given them thousands of dollars and they gave me $20.

I used ddswhite. Did the paypal thing and received trays and ordered supplies elsewhere. Worked fine. As for results - yes there was an improvement. I was going to post before/after pictures, but didn't get around to it.

One downside, they sold my email address and I started receiving a ton of dental related emails. blah on that.

It's still not much different than stealing - rationalize it however you want.

It's kind of ridiculous/annoying how my fathers insurance covers literally unlimited dental work for me at the best dentist in the city and I only go a few times a year for cleaning, yet it wouldn't cover anything related to tooth whitening.

No insurance company covers cosmetic surgery/dentistry. They'd go broke in a matter of days.

Are these guys legit? Not a single link except the "buy now" ones work on the site. I could just go ahead and paypal with my credit card and dispute if nothing shows up, but I'd rather not have to deal with the hassle if possible. On the topic though, I picked up the 42-pack (84 strips) of Whitestrips Supreme Professional (the one that only dentists are supposed to give out) from Amazon for about $50. WAYYY cheaper than buying anywhere in stores. The whitestrips do work, but you have to be consistent with using them, which I'm not, and they are kind of a pain in the ass to keep on for 30-45mins. Talking will move them out of place as well. Best to do before bed while watching TV or something

I was wondering the same thing...kinda sketchy.

I've considered teeth whitening, but wasn't sure as to the avenue. Now I know, thanks SF!
