My wedding is next Saturday and I fear I waited too long to get my teeth whitened. I am feeling bummed because I wanted that bright bridal smile and now I am upset I won’t have that. I am tempted to still go but if my teeth are super sensitive it could take days before feeling better.
bees- how far in advance before the wedding did you go if you went at all? Do you think it’s too risky to go now?

Next Saturday as in day after tomorrow or the following on the 11th?

Bleh Bee, I actually do think it’s too late now. The last time I got my teeth whitened, I had sensitivity for quite a while. Like, a week later I’d be at the mall and try not to smile so the AIR wouldn’t touch my teeth kinda sensitive. And then I became sensitive to changes in temperature with food too. You definitely do not want to experience these things on or around your wedding date!
Your smile WILL be a beautiful bridal, very you smile. That’s all that matters.

My cousin is a dentist and he swears crest whitestrips do the same thing as professional teeth whitening. I used them before my wedding for about a week and could tell a huge difference. Since your teeth are sensitive, don’t try to do the one day strips. I’d use the regular ones instead.

I second the crest white strips luxe ones. Its 20 treatments of 30 minutes at a time. Don’t use the ones that are an hour at a time. I have been using them for a few days now and I trim them accordingly so they dont sit too much on my gums. I already see a difference after a few days. Couple this with sensodyne toothpaste and you really shouldn’t have much sensitivity if at all.

flower2324: I would do crest white strips. I always have great results in about 5 days, better a week to 10 days. Give yourself a day or two break before the wedding for sensitivity to dissipate.

flower2324: You have time! Go ASAP. Your teeth will only be sensitive for a few days. They’ll be at their whitest as well.

Crest white strips are great. I’ve been using the crest whitening toothpaste (3D) for the past week and every single time I brush, they look whiter. My teeth are normally pretty sensitive. I do notice a bit with cold or hot liquids, but it hasn’t been as bad as I thought.
