so far i have been to the dentist 6 times since october last year.. i still have atleast 3 more visits to do.. (i hate the dentist probably why my smile is in bad shape..) next week i start the whitening treatments. have to get teeth the shade i want because i even manage to get cavitites on the front teeth- so ashamed of my teeth..
anyone use the dental “at home” bleaching trays. pros cons.. the major con is the price 250 bucks for at home vs 450 for the one time dentist treatment.. kinda nervous about doing it but it needs to be done. i want a healthy good smile for my wedding.

The whitestrips have always worked awesome for me. I will start those the month before the wedding. I also Swish with Hydrogen Peroxide (the active ingredient in strips and whitening toothpaste) before I brush.

My hubs is using a $100 treatment he got from his dentist to do at home. There are whitening trays. He finds it very painful and prickly feeling after.
I’m using Crest 3D Whitestrips with Advanced Seal. They were recommended to me by my dentist, who insisted, if you get them from a store, that you make sure you get the ones with Advanced Seal. I used only half of the kit and got AWESOME results, bleaching the shit out of my one problem canine that I was super embarassed about. I will be repeating the process and maybe getting a second kit if necessary closer to the wedding. I get minor prickly feelings after using the whitestrips, which is apparently very normal.

I absolutely hate whitestrips.. they taste nasty… and make my teeth super sensitive. I saw something on QVC/HSN the other day.. it was like whitening thingies.. with a uv light or something. They say there is no sensitivity.. so I would be willing to try that.. Other than that, I will be waiting for a good groupon/living social deal for an in office whitening.. —if only it was covered by insurance :-/

I have bleaching trays and find they are easier and convenient. I order professional bleach online (Opalescence 35% strength, 1 hour process time). Purchasing bleach online is cheaper than getting it from a dentist office. I have senstive teeth so I usually take four advil prior to bleaching. Hope this helps!

I’ll be waiting for groupon to do laser whitening, as it’s supposed to be best for super sensitive teeth. I tried using a tray before… within 5 minutes my eyes were watering and I had to stop. Afterwards, I was in so much pain that I couldn’t eat for 2 days. So yeah… no hydrogen peroxide/trays/strips for me!
