1. Thanks For Asking This... I've Been Wondering Too.
BUT... isn't it possible for people to "overdose" on that stuff so that their teeth start to appear to be TOO WHITE? So white that they look like dentures?

2. May that plague be visited upon me.
I have tried several things and mine don't whiten very well.

3. Did You Ever See That Episode Of "Friends"
where Ross had used the whitening formula that actually GLOWED IN THE DARK.

I never found out if that episode was pure fantasy, or if the storyline was based on factual possibilities.

8. Get this online. It's the same method for making molds of your
teeth and comes with a 22% carbamide peroxide (it's what the dentists use). It's about $99, but so worth it. You would have to buy zillions of those crest white strips to get any kind of results.

I am thrilled w/ it, wear the molds while I sleep, but you have to be careful not to "overdo it" because your teeth will get very sensitive.

11. Do your teeth whiten evenly?
I tried it before with an upper mold I had had made several years ago. It seemed like my teeth whitened along the bottom one-third and along the sides (kind of a U-shape). I wondered if it was a bad mold, bad teeth or placement of the gel. Does the gel go down in the bottom of the mold or is it placed more on the front part that is against the front teeth?

9. I like Crest White Strips
I only had to use half the package to get good results. I had mostly only smoke stains, no coffee/tea stains, some yellowing.

I found a coupon for like $7 off, so that was nice.

12. Uh...whitening toothpaste?
I use Colgate Total plus Whitening. It does the job and it costs a fraction of what those whitening/bleaching products cost.
