Teeth Whitening

Anyone here had an experience on professional teeth whitening? My teeth are not that yellow but some are more yellowish than others. Does it hurt? How long before the big day should I do it? How much was it? Did you get the color you want it?


Thank you in advance ❤️

    I actually got mine super cheap professionally, I definitely recommend looking up Groupon deals, not buying them, but calling the business and asking if they'll honor the Groupon (they take a % of the already discounted prices so a lot of places really appreciate this, but screenshot the Groupon to be safe lol.) Chains don't allow this but independent business' usually do.


    I would recommend trying it as early as possible to test your own reaction, then you can go again closer to and know what to expect. Mine hurt badly the day after (though she said only like 5% of her customers usually experience pain) and by bedtime were killing me, but I felt pretty much all better by the morning!
    I didn't, but I expected to go a few times (which is something else to consider, and another reason to go as early as possible because I think there's like a 3 month suggested waiting period between whitenings.) That said, I did like the results I got, it was noticable, I just wanted to go whiter.

    I tried getting mine professionally whitened once years ago and it was Very sensitive for me but I’m a wuss. I brush my teeth with baking soda and regular toothpaste 2x a day and my teeth look like this. Teeth Whitening 1

    Teeth Whitening 2

    If I want to get them super duper white I’ll do
    crest whitening strips daily for 14 days straight before the day. Those are my favorite and they don’t make my teeth sensitive

    My teeth were also incredibly sensitive after getting them whitened. I did it the week of the wedding. I can’t remember how much I paid.

    I did a professional teeth whitening treatment at the dentist 3 weeks before my wedding, since my teeth are very sensitive. I paid $600 (this was the cheapest package they offered) and the appointment lasted about an hour. The dentist also sent me home with follow up strips that I used all the way up until 4 days before the wedding. It didn't hurt, but I had to keep my mouth open in the same position for the whole hour (there was a wire mouth guard in there which helped.) I would recommend doing it a few weeks before the big day to be safe

    When is your wedding ? I got mine professionally whitened and they last a loooong time being white lol. So if I were you, I would do it ASAP. Don’t want too close to your date because there is sensitivity. My personal experience, they did hurt! They were also VERY white at first, then became more naturally white overtime.

    We decided to postpone to 2020, since 2021 doesn’t feel promising either, and 2022 would be our 25th wedding anniversary. We eloped back then, now we want an intimate wedding. Being a coffee addict and over 40 yo did things to my teeth 🤪


    How long do they stay white?

    Honestly, it was not worth it. I would see if they have take home trays.

    I've used Crest Whitening Strips and they work very well, that's what I plan on using because they're pretty easy and wouldn't cost nearly as much. I also use Sensodyne two times a day, my teeth are very sensitive.

    I went the professional route. I'm not sensitive. It was easy and perfect. The pricing structure I think depends on your office and how may treatments you do. Like you, I was mostly white o I just needed one visit to get them all perfect.
    The green is the dam that protects your gums. I went 10 days before our wedding.

    Your dentist will also have access to higher strength take home strips / trays.
