I’ll probably just whiten mine in March. I’m not that worried but my goodness, Fiance doesn’t believe in using all those chemicals and drinks an entire pot of coffee a day! I can’t convince him to whiten his teeth for the wedding. Hopefully our photographer is good at photoshop.

My teeth go from coffee/energy drink/smoker off white to brilliant movie start white in about 2-3 weeks with the Crest Strips. Actually, more often than not, they’re pretty freaking white after the first time.

I think 2-3 weeks with no preliminary whitening is fine.

It also depends on the composite of your teeth though. It works out better for some people than others…I might just have really porous teeth. lol

You might want to do a trial run a few months before hand and if it doesn’t look different to you, then maybe go for longer but I highly doubt you’d need to start MONTHS in advance

@Coral99:  What did you use?  I would like to get the best results as quickly as possible (without Zoom).

According to my dentist, the best time to whiten is right after a cleaning, so that the treatment will be even πŸ™‚

@Coral99:  The Whitestrips will tell you how long to wear them for, we got the #3 pack but due to the price Darling Husband and I split it, so 1 week each (normally 2 weeks) we were pretty white by the end πŸ™‚

I can usually use the Crest White Strips for less than a month and get really great results.  I haven’t used them for over a year, drink coffee every day and still get compliments on my teeth.  I use a whitening toothpaste to try and keep it up between using the strips. Our wedding is in June and I’ll probably start at the beginning of May!

@Coral99:  You have enough time that you could do it now, and then again before your wedding. That way you could find out if it works for ya. πŸ™‚
