TEETH WHITENING

Hey ladies....are any of you doing any teeth whitening rituals for the big day? If so, what do you use that WORKS?!? I want to make sure my teeth are the whitest they've ever been for my big day in June! :-) I know there are professional remedies, but does anyone use over the counter that works pretty good?

Thanks!!! :-)

I went the professional route and it was worth the investment.  I had 2 out of 3 rounds of bleaching done with 3 viles of teeth whitening solution to use at home.  I did not have as much success with the over the counter white strips.  HTH.

Make a paste out of peroxide and baking soda. Be careful, it foams up at first. Then brush your teeth with it twice a day, leaving it sit for a few minutes if you can. It's not very tasty, but it works just as well as the white strips for a fraction of the cost.

I get compliments on my teeth all the time and the most I've done it Crest White Strips. I use Crest Pro whitening Toothpaste and Mouthwash too a few times a day and that seems to do the trick for me!

I think I am using the strips...FI is going to try it too.  His teeth are actually perfect but he still wants his smile to be bright.

We have white strips but my mom told me about baking soda. I just stick my toothbrush in baking soda and then toothpaste on it and brush. I might try the peroxide route next but those white strips are expenisve since my man wants to do it too plus I hate how they feel on my teeth!

Okay...using baking soda twice a day is SO bad! After all of the enamel on your teeth is gone because of how abrasive baking soda is, you'll regret it. 

Once a day or every other day works though! I do that :) I'm thinking of investing in crest white strips though with all of the good reviews that they've gotten!

I used 3D Crest strips and it was awesome. Highly recommend!


Edit:I've been using baking soda for years, on and off, it really makes a difference.

I'm going to reiterate what ridegrl1 said. Baking soda is VERY VERY BAD for your teeth. it is extremely abrasive!


If you want to whiten your teeth my suggestion would be to start with Crest strips, Places like costco sell bigger boxes for a better price. Make sure you brush and floss before you use them. If those aren't doing the trick then talk to your doctor about trays specifically adapted to your mouth and the professional stronger whitening that they can provide. If you are not in a time crunch I would also suggest whitening your top teeth and then your bottom so you can really see if they are being effective.


If you are in a real time crunch and want to do the fast in office whitening that's fine (it's ussually much more expensive). However, it won't last as long because it won't penetrate as deep as the longer treatments.

I was planning on getting professional whitening, but ran out of time before the wedding, so I used Crest 3D White Strips. My teeth were already pretty white, but they definitely made a difference!
