After getting a new crown, I’ve been noticing my teeth more and I think my teeth are too yellow… eww!!!… (Damn smoking and Diet Coke!) I ask my dentist about the teeth whiteners and toothpaste they had on the market and he said that the whitening toothpastes have such a little concentration of the active ingredient, that they don’t work well. He suggest to try the . So I got a pack on Friday. I though it was kinda pricey at $24, but the box I got had 50% more free, so I though I would give it a try.
If you haven’t seen or heard of them. The Crest Whitestrips are basically these plastic strips with little dots of peroxide that you place on your teeth. You apply them for 30 minutes, twice daily for 2 weeks.
At first, it was kinda gross. I kept on salivating, so I would taste and smell the peroxide. After 3 days, it going okay… I think I’m use to it now and no longer salivate excessively. I think my teeth are getting whiter, but I don’t know if it’s all in my head… I should have taken pictures of my teeth before I started… Well, I’ll see in a couple weeks.
