I swish hydrogren peroxide a couple of times a week, and that has seemed to help! I’m thinking of getting my teeth professionally whitened before the wedding though. Update us on how your products work. I would prefer doing an at home treatment to save a little money.

MrsSpagan:  I’ve used Crest White Strips and had great results. They cause teeth sensitivity in me, but they definitely whitened my teeth.

  MrsSpagan:  I’ve used the Rembrandt 2 Hour from Target before and it works great.  I like that it’s multiple doses so you can split it up if your gums or teeth start to get sensitive, or even if you just don’t need to use all of it.  I saved doses for quite a while to do touch ups.  I will probably go that route again for the wedding.

ETA: I just looked it up and it looks like the product has changed to strips instead of gel (in trays) so I can’t speak for how well the strips work.

MrsSpagan:  whitening toothpastes are very abrasive especially those with stain removal claims they can strip tooth structure and cause sensitivity, you are better off with whitening strips. Check out Toothpaste RDA values  on levysmiles.com. Professional whitening is obviously the fastest most effective choice but will definately give you some sensitivity though the results can be long lasting and worth the temporary sensitivity. Try white strips Or opalesence 15% percent HP you could get it online its very effective.

I also used Whitestrips, the ones that work in 7 days I think?  They definitely helped, but made my teeth hurt after wearing them, so I didn’t finish the box.

I have the trays and the gel stuff from the dentist, and I actually prefer crest whitestrips. They do make my teeth more sensitive for a bit but they work great!

I’ve had much more luck with whitening strips than toothpaste

Try mixing baking soda and hydrogen peroxide and brushing the paste onto each tooth for two minutes. do that once a week until you see the desired results. I haven’t tested it out, but this is the method I was going to use.

I just used Crest White Strips and so did my husband. My teeth felt sensistive for the first two days of using them, but were fine after that.

This may sound silly but I started swishing unrefined coconut oil 4 times a week for about 10 minutes a time and then brushing with a whitening toothpaste. it has made my teeth whiter.
