how much did it cost?

£180. More painful than childbirth. I wouldn't recommend it! Tho I think I just had a bad reaction to the bleach. Never ever again.

£180 is less than i expected

Boots/Vision Express are doing it for £199 - I'm booked in for mine in 2 weeks time. dh had his done last year - fantastic results.
We went for the overnight gumshield type for a week. Then in years to come you can just get more bleach and top up your smile for £18 rather than having to pay for the full blown laser type again.

thanks tracy - so i just need to go into a boots shop? or a vision express?

Sorry - just checked it's Optical Express - try HO 01236 723300 and ask where their nearest dental premises is. The dental part of boots was bought out by optical exp. last year so some of the dentists were inside big boots stores and i don't know what hapened to them - but Bedford branch was a dentist on its own in the high st - so they just changed the signage.
