Over the counter tooth whitening??

Recommended Posts

I heart crest whitening strips and swear by them!

 

I recently just bought GOSmile kit though for FI to use. He cant stand keeping the strips in his mouth for 20-30min so this kit is supposed to be twice a day for 10 days, and only in your mouth for 1-2 min. Ill let you know how it goes :)

ok i am a hygienist so i will break down all of your options:) otc, strips are going to be your most effective. they all produce senstivity, i rec high flouride tp , you can get a rx from your dds or use sensitivity tp 1 week prior to starting tx. next level up would be bleaching trays about half the price of in office nad proven to have the same end result to in office just takes longer. nice because you can control it and if your sensitive just skip a day. with in office bleaching you should still get take hom etrays to keep up the whiteness. hope this helps:)

I jut got a box of crest whitening advance seal. Holy cow I had to yank those things off my teeth after the 30 min. were up. I always foam at the mouth when I wear these so I don't know who the commercials are trying to fool but you cant do anything but lie in bed. Today was my first box in a few years. Lets hope they work, I will know soon!

Anyways, they worked amazingly! It doesn't matter which type I get (the expensive or the cheapest) they all have th same results. I typically only have to use half a box and my teeth are SO white that if I used the other half I'd end up looking like a Friend's episode! :) So that works out spiffy because my DH uses the other half of the box!
My teeth do get sensitive... but it's typically only when I do two right after each other. Then my teeth hurt really bad!

Good luck!
There's no reason why you can't swallow during treatment while using Crest Whitestrips. Even though I work for the company (in Fabric Care - Tide - not Oral Care) and can get them for free by doing "guinea pig" building panels, I can't use them for more than a couple of days because even sucking air through my mouth is painful they get so sensitive.

My dentist and I have talked and he's giving me a bleaching treatment after I finish with my Invisilgn type retainers instead.

I didn't read through the whole thread, so forgive if this has been brought up, but I was also in the dental field, and all of our RDA's swore by rembrandt whitening toothpaste. If this is not enough, at least try and use it after you do whichever other method you choose.

I just finished using Plus White 5 Minute Bleach Whitening Gel! I've been using this every day for 10 minutes since Saturday and my teeth look sooooo much better.

 

The trick is to buy the tube that looks like this:

and use cheapo sporting mouth cards so the gel stay right up against your teeth. I bought the gel for like $7 at Walmart and the mouth guards for $.99 each. (I got an upper and a lower piece.)

I have received today the crest whitestrips supreme for 10 daysthat I ordered thourgh ebay. 

 

I have started today and bad start!! I put it the one for both line of teeth and the flavour that made me feel sick...  is so horrible that I have ruined the line of the down teeth.

In this moment I am only with the one and suffering because of so many saliva... I imagine I have to get used to them... this is the first time in my life... 

tomorrow i will make the one of down and then start again with both at the same time.

 

It still lefts 30 minutes to take it out of the mouth... Hope that it works and my teeth are going to be whiter!! 

 

I was searching for whitening and I found this threat. I will tell you all how these are working!

Hello again ladies,

 

Well I did promise I would post it here about the experience with the tooth whitening and all I can tell you is that really works!! After two days I see the changes. 

In fact, my Fi was so impressed that he ordered them too, hahaha

 

Only problems:

 

*I have to be laid while using it because it produces me a lot of saliva.

 

*My teeth are sensible but nothing you cannot stand up so I bought Sensodyne and a manual toothbrooth. 

 

 

But suming up, it worths the value, the money and the time. Just one suggestion: instead of using it twice per day (30 minutes each time) do it just once during 60 min. It is written at the instructions and for me is better that put them 2 per day.

You can get it at wal-mart.  I have a friend that swears by it too.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
