Works great. I use crest white strips. Lightened DHs teeth quite a bit

@sburger555:  Mix together olive oil and baking soda, brush it on for three minutes, then brush your teeth regularly. Tastes disgusting, but works like a charm!

I’m all about the baking soda over here. Maybe it’s old-school, but I’ve found that the “whitening” products out there make my teeth really sensitive. It works, it’s CHEAP, and it’s just baking soda – no weird toxins.

I’ve also heard rinsing your mouth with hydrogen peroxide works, but I’m not sure how well it does.  The baking soda thing intrigues me because my teeth also get really sensitive.

Crest whitening strips work for me.  I get them every couple years on sale.  And they sometimes have rebates too.  Plus I don’t really need the whole box at once.  More like half.  So it’s a nice booster to use a year later, at least for me.

I’ve used whitestrips before with good results. I just have to use them half as often as the instructions say because they make my teeth sensitive.

I’m doing a hydrogen peroxide rinse right now, I mix equal parts water and hydrogen peroxide and swish it in my mouth for about a minute. After that I rinse out with water then brush my teeth. I’ve only been doing this for about a week now. But I did notice that the bottom of my two top front teeth are becoming transparent on the bottom. I’ve started using Sendodine, and that seems to be helping with that issue. I don’t know how much whiter my teether actually are though. 

I also heard that mixing baking soda and hydrogen peroxide into a paste and brushing your teeth with that is suppose to work pretty well.

It’s super expensive but I use the Glo Whitening system. It’s the only thing I’ve done that doesn’t hurt my extra sensitive teeth.

I think teeth whitening pens are great, on the big day they’re discreet enough to hide just about anywhere. Not that expensive either.

I use Crest Whitestrips but I do them OVERNIGHT instead of just for an hour or whatever. I have crazy sensitivity for about 1 day (oddly, not the day after I slept in them, but the day after). Did wonders pre-wedding.

Does it whiten your teeth uneven ? I have a teeth that is slightly ”turned” on the side instead of being straight. I’m afraid the strips will beach the surface but not the side part and look uneven and weird. Does that ever happen, or the Crest White Stripes can be placed correctly even if your teeth are not perfectly straight ?
