@shannonh32:  I agree, they are the best and worth every penny.

I suggest Crest White Strips as well! I was always skeptical, but my husband’s college roommate had the most beautiful white teeth I’d ever seen. His secret? He uses white strips a couple times a year =) I used them in January and they made my teeth super white. Also, use the Crest 3D White toothpaste and the rinse. All of this may make your teeth super sensitive – I even had pain, but it’s totally worth it.

I think the Crest WhiteStrips are great too! When I use them, I switch to Sensodyne toothpaste. I recently tried (really expensive) whitening trays from my dentist, and I saw NO difference. I’m definitely using the Crest ones again before my wedding!

It takes 2 weeks to whiten, so I’d either start them immediately before you had your wisdom teeth removed or definitely wait until you’re completely healed. The strips won’t go back that far, but my teeth seriously ACHED from the strips. If you add that on top of the pain from your wisdom teeth, your entire mouth could possibly be in pain. (Of course, some people have no sensitivity issues at all with the strips.)

If you’ve had yellow teeth for a long time, Crest white strips might not work for you. They’re really good at whitening surface staining, but for the deeper stains the strips don’t do a thing. I probably spent $100 on Crest whitestrips that never seemed to really whiten my teeth. Eventually I broke down and went to the dentist for the Zoom! whitening procedure. It was then that my dentist explained about the different types of teeth staining. I was 30 at the time and had never had my teeth whitened. Incidentally, I never really went to the dentist as a kid either (though I did floss).

I’d say try the white strips if you haven’t already, but you might want to look into Zoom whitening for better, longer lasting results.

Brushing with baking soda can help, minus the sensitivity and chemicals.

I brushed with baking soda before. It may work for some, but I definitely had better results with the white strips. And the baking soda hurt my gums! You can also swish hydrogen peroxide around in your mouth (it’s the same thing that’s one the strips) but I doubt the results would be the same. The reason the strips work so well is because it keeps the peroxide on your teeth for 30 minutes (or longer if you don’t follow the directions like me)
