Is it worth whitening your teeth?

The matter of teeth whitening is very well known to me. Before I started wearing the permanent braces, I thought about undergoing professional whitening.
I have used billions of whitening pastes, whitening strips and white pearl so far. I will say a little about each of the ways.

teeth whitening
The issue of tooth color is often an individual matter. Sometimes some have naturally white teeth, sometimes these teeth fall more into ecru or ivory. I have never had perfectly white teeth. It also seems to me that such snowy whiteness often does not look natural. Yes, white teeth are very pretty, but here it is worth maintaining moderation.
1. Bleaching pastes
This is probably the first of the ways we choose when trying to whiten our teeth. Unfortunately most pastes just don't work. The manufacturer's promises are different and the effects are poor. Thanks to the whitening paste, I was able to get only a small effect. Signal White Now paste probably worked the fastest (now I know it is in the gold version, which unfortunately does not whiten so much). You must be careful with whitening pastes and you can't use them all the time. Such pastes are also not intended for children.
2. Whitening stripes
Long, long time ago, because before prom I wanted to have white teeth. I went to Superpharm and bought blend-a-med whitening strips. Trash was terribly expensive, however, I started promotion and got it for PLN 49. I remember it today. They were discounted from 79 PLN. for 49 PLN! I started testing, which with my sensitive teeth ended tragic. I didn't know much then, I didn't read cosmetic blogs and the effects were not very pleasant. The sensitivity of the teeth, which has been bothering me, has always been felt even more. Unfortunately, I did not know that for this type of products it is worth using toothpaste for sensitive teeth. I couldn't eat and drink and after two days I put the damn thing away, throwing away 50. This is how my whitening adventure ended, until one day ...
3. White pearl
Until the day before the wedding, I said it again I will play whitening. This time I bought a touted white pearl that was supposed to bring pearl teeth. The stairs started at the beginning when making whitening rails. They were not perfect and for the devil they did not want to leave. When I was able to shape them, I thought it would be better, but it wasn't, because after inserting the whitening rails I felt a gag reflex. I couldn't keep it in my mouth for a minute. Another money wasted;)
And so ended my adventure with teeth whitening, now I am not even tempted because of the apparatus at which such treatments are not an option. After taking the camera off, I may do some treatment, e.g. sandblasting, which apparently also brings good results, or something that my orthodontist or dentist will recommend. But it is only in almost two years. I don't think about it yet

    I used White Pearl, unfortunately the tip of the teeth, especially the incisors, became transparent after about a week of use! I stopped and I will never use it again, I will not go back.

      I will not go back to the white pearl. Wasted money and that's it.

    The best way to have white teeth is not to drink coffee, do not smoke cigarettes and brush your teeth after each meal, then you can avoid having to whiten your teeth.

      Unfortunately, I do not agree, because tooth color is an individual matter. I had creamy, not white, teeth without smoking, drinking coffee and brushing my teeth after each meal.

    I used to whiten my teeth with a white pearl and I was very happy, later I bought Crest strips on the allegro, which gave an amazing effect and I intend to use them from time to time 🙂

      I hear about these stripes for the first time. When I take the camera off I will definitely try it! :)

    I used to think about sandblasting but not bleaching 🙂 In general, I don't need any surgery today 🙂

    • Avatar GoodForYouDP 23 May 2015 / 04: 43

      Sandblasting can give really great effects :)

    probably the best way is to just go to the dentist and hear what he offers 🙂

    • Avatar GoodForYouDP 23 May 2015 / 04: 43

      Unfortunately, my dentist is against whitening and this type of treatment; P

    I used white pearl and I had the same problem as you. Well, somehow I managed, but I did not know if the effect was any.

    • Avatar GoodForYouDP 23 May 2015 / 04: 44

      The white pearl can give really great effects that last for a long time. Unfortunately, I can't do it 😉

    Sandblasting gives great results, but after this procedure I became hypersensitive so that I couldn't even eat sheep - it took a long time to return to normal 🙂

    • Avatar GoodForYouDP 23 May 2015 / 04: 45

      A friend recommended elmex sensitive after sandblasting. I didn't have sandblasting, but this paste saved me from hypersensitivity from the fixed device.

      After sandblasting, Biorepair helped restore the enamel at night. Good fluoride-free paste.

    • Avatar GoodForYouDP 23 May 2015 / 06: 09

      I have read somewhere recently that fluoride is bad for the thyroid. Now I use elmex against caries, I am satisfied with this paste, but maybe it is actually worth looking for something without fluoride and with similar effects dział

    I only use whitening pastes, and I didn't try all these stripes because I was always afraid that it was a waste of money. I feel like whitening at the dentist, but I don't know if he'll decide 🙂

      Bleaching is expensive, and the only paste that worked for me was signal white now (old version).

    I whitened my teeth after removing the camera, first the black paste settled and then at the dentist gels opalescence and it was the most working, at night it was assumed, after some long time as the teeth darkened a bit, I gave up laser whitening but it hurts after the procedure and I can't see the effects too much, I had a white pearl but my teeth only brightened and did not whiten, now I will have the opportunity to order the gel on opalescence allegro again because it was the most effective and painless 🙂

    • Avatar GoodForYouDP 23 May 2015 / 04: 48

      I do not know this gel, but I will look at it after removing the camera 🙂

    I did sandblasting. Teeth after this are sensitive for a few days but for the effect is satisfactory.
