I bought some handy dandy professional grade whitening strips from the dentist's office. I considered having bleaching trays made, but after talking with my dentist, it would be a waste of my money. He said I only had two more shades of white to go up to top whiteness.
See, I told you I have the mad toothbrush skillz. And the only thing I do is brush regularly with plain whitening toothpaste by Crest, use floss, and drink most of my beverages through a straw. I think it's the last one that has particularly saved my teeth. That, and I don't smoke.
The dentist charges $325 just to get the trays made. That kind of money for two shades...whatever. I just bought the white strips for $30. I'm replacing a couple crowns, and I want the crowns and the teeth to match in color. Preferably white.
I'm sort of obsessed about my teeth like that.
The kit I bought was a seven day regimen. I started day one yesterday. I was so impressed because the strips were wax-like, and conformed to my teeth. Not like those other strips that just sort of slide around.
My bottom teeth hurt so bad. Right now!! This seven day regimen is probably going to be a seven week regimen. Meanwhile, Tylenol is my best friend. And Sensodyne toothpaste. Ice is evil. And yawning outside.
The things we do for vanity.
