Whitestrips

What is everyone using to whiten their teeth?  I have 18 days and the 2 viles I got from the dentist did nothing.   I'm going today to get more but I want to know what people have used that work.

Re: Whitestrips

  • I use white strips and I've always gotten good results. Theyre quick, cheap, convenient, and they work really well.
  • I searched on the internet what worked best and everyone was saying mix
    1 tsp baking soda
    dash salt
    and a few drops of vinegar 

    and brush with it for 2 minutes, then brush with your regular tooth paste. Tried it last night and I could see a big difference, I will be doing it for the rest of the week!

    Wow really?  What is dash salt?  Maybe I will try that first since Matt is not really having the whitestrips.
  • I just use the Crest Advanced White Strips. I feel that this work best, and they dont make my teeth sensitive. One night I even fell asleep with them in and my teeth were fine the next day.

    Unless it's something I haven't heard of or it's Mrs. Dash salt, I'm assuming it's a dash of salt. Like a pinch.

    I just bought these and I can't wait to try them! I did professional strength whitening once and it worked great. The second time my teeth were so sensitive I was in such excruciating pain I needed to stay home from work for two days until the pain went away! SO bad!
    I like the vinegar/baking soda brush-- that sounds like a good option too!

    Wow that's great. I'll have to try it. I used the crest strips and my teeth got so sensitive I couldn't drink nothing cold or hot. Recently I changed toothpaste and I've noticed a huge improvement, in the sensitivity, so now I'm afraid to start using the strips again. But I'm def going to try this. Thanks.

  • I am going to Target this week to buy crest whitestrips...its on my list!
  • Well I guess I will go get some whitestrips today.  I read the reviews for the 3d strips and most people said they didn't work.  So I'll try the advanced ones.  

    Thanks ladies!
  • I stopped using the "hippie toothpaste" (Tom's) and it's made a huge difference already, haha.  I do the dentists stuff and I'm also going to do the instant whitening right before the wedding.  They're doing a deal here where it's only 100 at one office.

    HAHA!  I googled dash salt. There is a such a thing. :)
  • I use the Crest 3D White toothpaste and I think it definitely helps, but I need a little more...

    I am going to try that baking soda concotion tonight!

  • (just had some crazy Knot error and my post went on the inland empire California board, woops) This is what it said:

    I wanna try that baking soda recipe too, I have the crest 3d advanced ones, but I must have super sensitive teeth cuz even just after 30 minutes my teeth are in pain for a day or two, even cold air hurts. They don't bother FI as much though. I dread having to start using them again.
  • I'm sure you've already bought them, but I used one of the basic Crest ones, can't remember which one off the top of my head--maybe I've done a few of them and they worked great!  I plan on picking a pack up in a week or two to start for my b-pic shoot--even though my teeth are pretty white, I just want to brighten them!

    Good Luck..the professional grade stuff from my dentist killed my mouth, I couldn't use it!
  • I'm using a pre-rinse from Listerine.  My teeth are sensitive, so I'm going to use this and then try the strips when it gets closer.
