I did laser.  WAS NOT WORTH IT.  Stick to over the counter – like Rembrandt whitening trays and a good whitening toothpaste.

Crest or Listerine whitening rinse pre-brushing twice a day, crest vivid white toothpaste, and Simply White whitening gel for 5 minutes every other day.

Before my wedding, in addition to my regular toothpaste (crest vivid white or 3d white), I used the crest 3d white strips, and they made a noticeable difference! I’d say they’re definitely worth trying, and you can usually find coupons for them!

Crest pro white strips.  Darling Husband and I split a box (it was $80) but it worked wonders.  My teeth were sensitive after the original white strips we got at Christmas, but the more expensive ones were quicker and seemed less harsh.

There were groupon-type things for the DIY gel; I think we got two for about $80.

SO has done it several times for a very noticeable difference each time.  Mine I have only done twice but they weren’t as bad as SOs.  (They were getting seriously gross, we were going to pay for the dentist to deal with it, but then I found the deal online so we tried that first.  Very glad we tried it!).  For Canada, check http://www.alldailydeals.ca to see all of the group buying sites at once for a city, 99% of the time there’s a deal on ship-to-you teeth whitening stuff.

I really like the Crest Advanced pro white strips. They’re not gooey like some of the other ones I’ve tried and you can even drink water while wearing them. I saw results in just 2 applications. They did give me a bit of sensitivity afterward, but I think that’s just par for the course with whiteners.

I mix peroxide and baking soda. Use just enough making peroxide to make the baking soda a little beyond damp. Brush with the mixture ever 2 weeks or so. It tastes the butt so try to keep it away from your tongue. It works so well.

It is no more dangerous than swallowing toothpaste, which a lot of them have peroxide in them.

OKay…. I SWEAR by this toothpaste! It is kinda hard to find. You get it in drugstores but not all of them carry it. I always stock up when i find it. 

I am a teeth whitening freak and this is the ONLY toothpaste that whitens my teeth and keeps them white. 

I usually use one tube and then go off of it for a while just because it has peroxide and I dont want to overdo it. 

It is Rembrandt – but only the one that HAS peroxide. The other ones don’t work. And I haven’t had the same results with other brands that have peroxide. It comes in a green box. NOT THE RED ONE.

Good luck.
