Hmm I’m not sure if I did the same kind as you, I did the laser whitening.  But OHEMGEE did it hurt!!! Same thing it like stung my teeth.  It was super painful during and after for a few days.  It did eventually go away and people (and different new dentists) have all said my teeth are much whiter.  So I guess its just a matter if you mind enduring the pain for the whiter teeth.  Free is a great deal I paid a lot of money for mine, what a nice dentist!

Put Sensodyne-F toothpaste in your trays instead of bleach for a week before whitening and you won’t get sensitivity.  I whiten people’s teeth all the time and this seems to help most people.

It did make my teeth a little sore. I wore the trays during the night and almost always ended up taking them out in the middle of the night. But man, did it work!

It also gave me a bit of a belly ache. Just the taste of the peroxide, I think.

I used professional strength whitening from my dentist and my teeth hurt terribly (it hurt to chew, cold/ hot food and gave me headaches).  I even used toothpaste for sensitive teeth, but that didn’t help.  I eventually had to stop using the product.

SurprisedSo people who got it done how far from the actual weddinbg date would you recommend having this done?? I at least want to be able to enjoy my rception food after having it done. I want my teeth white on my wedding day but I dont want to be in pain.

I used the whitening strips you get from the drug store, and had no pain or discomfort. You use them every night for two weeks, and if you want, you can buy another pack and use them for an additional two weeks. So, @pat291, you’d want to start them at least 2-4 weeks before the wedding.

The strips made a difference in two weeks for me that I and my husband were both easily able to notice.

I used Crest White Strips a few years ago, and it did seem to help with whitening, but my teeth were very sensitive for awhile.  It did go away, and I think my teeth are still white!

My Mother-In-Law works at an orthodontist office so I get free whitening trays twice a year. I do mine every 6 months. They were sensitive for a few days and uncomfortable with the trays on–and they definitely said don’t leave them on longer than 30 minutes. Oh and if you happen to swallow any of the goo, it’ll cause a sore throat, just so you know. I think some of it mixed it with my saliva and i thought it was really strange at first.

Those trays are the BEST though!!!
