Has anyone had their teeth whitened? I desperately want to have mine done but researching it just leaves me confused. Different dentists use different products, there are online teeth whitening solutions and there are things you can buy in stores (supermarket or pharmacy options)
Has anyone used something that actually worked? It is a lot of money so I want to make a good choice. Obviously I don’t want it to weaken or damage my teeth.
Would love some guidance. Happy to pay the money for the safest product that actually works.

  • Get dentist advice! As your teeth stains are different to everyone else’s and will work with different products

  • I was wondering whether charcoal toothpaste helps or not

  • I would definitely go to a dentist and use professional products, otherwise you will get discolouration.

  • following as im interested also

  • I’ve read that bicarb soda on a toothbrush is a good whitener. Other then that, I would only try the supermarket whiteners.

  • A good question that I have been pondering for some time too! I am interested to see what is suggested here. I have tried some of the ‘so-called’ whitening toothpastes but with no results at all …..

  • consulting a dentist is probably the safest option

  • I’ve asked this same question to my dentist and she encourages me to have ‘natural teeth’…but I really would like them whiter. One thing she has said to me though is that because I have sensitive teeth, I need to avoid whitening toothpastes because it will make my teeth more sensitive.

  • Brushing teeth with baking soda works for me.

  • I use opti white by Colgate but only for a week to get them white as I hear it can damage enamel. Then I use Colgate total as recommended by my dentist but I’m keen to hear others opinions from their dentists

  • I would ask your dentist as you want the safest option. I did use a supposedly whitening tooth past and it did nothing.
