    I tried the Aquafresh trays and they destroyed my gums near my teeth, they got all white and started to fall off like they were burnt. It was painful. I didn't get that with Crest Whitestrips and they worked ok.

      Yeah, I know what you mean about there being pain as a result of teeth whiteners!

      I tried this Listerine Whitening Mouth rinse, and it did something to cause the inside of my cheeks to "peel"! I was at work one day, and something felt weird, and when I went to the bathroom to check, sure enough, that was the problem.

      I immediately discontinued use of that product, but have been sort of scared to try anything since, so THANKS TO EVERYBODY for their input!

      Hugs!
      Christie :)

        Aquafresh works a lot better for me than Crest.

          Ebay has some very good paste. The same one dentist use,but 10x less(about $10). These work much better than strips,since strips don't have that special bleaching ingredient.

            The best thing that I like to use is Baking Soda and Peroxide. Mix it like a paste and use it for about a week and you can see the difference. I've been doing it forever!!!! Works wonders!!

                You just use it like it's toothpaste. And I usually use it about one week out of the month.

                    I have had good luck with the whitestrips that are actually a wax that molds to your teeth. Target had a knock-off version that was cheaper than Crest. I hope I can find it again!

                      carbamide peroxide is the ingredient that actually whitens. Strips will only take away some coffee stains,but they don't have the power to go deeper. Peroxide gel on the other hand will just eat all the stains and after 2-4 days teeth are very white. Can't beat that for less than 10 bucks.
