    Is anyone having their teeth whitened (by their dentist) for the wedding? I'm considering this, is it worth the price? What are your thoughts?

      I had Zoom done awhile ago and I got a great deal ($199). Search around and see what deals are out there. Where I went even included the custom trays and whitening paste for maintenance. I am awful at keeping up with it, but I will be doing it closer to my wedding!

        Do you have sensitive teeth? I have tried to do the whitening trays in the past as well as Crest White Strips, and it hurts too bad. I can normally do three days of 15 minute treatments before my teeth hurt so bad that just the air hitting my teeth when i open my mouth hurts. I was wondering in Zoom would hurt? If I took a bunch of pain pills and sat there for the hour for them to do it...would I be able to eat in the next 2 weeks? Maybe that could kill two birds with 1 stone and could be a great diet! ha. I know, pathetic, huh.

          If you have a Brite Smile office nearby I would recommend them. I had my teeth whitened on a special occassion several years ago. Initially a painful process. You show up and they put these uncomfortable "protectors" in your mouth and then, with your jaw cranked open, they put your mouth under a blue lamp. For the next 24 hours my teeth were really really sensitive (as in it hurt a little just to breath in deeply) and they cautioned me to only eat white or clear fluids and foods--which freaked me out to the point where I basically went on a rush diet

          But the results at least for me were PHENOMENAL. My teeth aren't bad to start with but I came out white off the charts and the white stayed for the next 6-8 months (and then started to slowly go back to the original off-white color).

          Yes, it is more expensive than home treatment and painful for 24 hours. In my opinon: completely worth it and I definitely plan to get them whitened about a month before the big day!

          Let me know if anyone has other easy ideas!
          The fun starts ... February 22, 2011!

            I use daywhite I love it... I wear the trays for 30 minutes a day and get great results.

            Initially I found a dentist that offered free teeth whitening for new patients so I got the trays made and my starter kit from him. Now I just order the stuff online. They also have nitewhite that you wear in the trays while you sleep... that stuff is great too i just didn't like sleeping with the trays in.

              I've never had my dentist do the whitening, but I was pretty pleased with one of the
              Rembrandt at home kits. I did one with a series of trays that you can do in just a couple of hours. Probably not as great as a professional, but if your teeth aren't too discolored initially, I would recommend it.

                I am getting my teeth whitened.. actually I am going next week for my appointment. I am doing this because I won it at a bridal show I went to in Novmeber! I was going to just do Crest White Strips but this will be free! I have used Crest White Strips in the past and the results were REALLY good! It was actually seven years ago now that I used them and I still get compliments on my teeth being white. Even my dentist noticed when I first did it. I would recommend them! But yes, they did make my teeth a little sensitive but nothing I couldn't deal with.

                  I was thinking of having my dentist do it although he is expensive.
