I can't wear lipstick because it makes my teeth look awful! I've tried whitening tooth pastes but they makes no difference at all. It's reall affecting my confidence. Can anyone recommend anything please that doesn't cost £££
I know you don't want to spent lots... But... I had my teeth whitened by trays at the dentist in 2008 and they were absolutely gleaming (dentists words). Almost 8 years on they're still very white and look much healthier than they are!
It hurt like hell, v sensitive but my god did it work. Cost about £500, but I have, and still am, reaping the benefits !
I would check out the teeth whitening at any dentist in your area. My friend recently got a great deal at one of hers, they did some moulds and she uses these daily. I got my teethed whitened a few years ago when I went to America, they went about 7 shades lighter at the time. I could do with having it redone now. I always find when I have my teeth cleaned by a hygienist at the dentist they always look whiter.
I was looking at a kit sold on Amazon, seems to have great reviews...http://www.amazon.co.uk/whitening-strips-Whitening-Moneyback-Guarantee/dp/B01416V1G0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1453752647&sr=8-2&keywords=tooth+whitening+kit
I'd just like to point out that the ones @MsBonjangles posted are fooling you into buying them because the seller gives out another free packet of whitening strips if you leave a positive 5 star review :-( this is why they have such great reviews. I was tempted to buy them a while ago but if you read the negative comments you'll see how they are trying to trick you into buying them.
I've heard amazing things about Crest strips. I did buy some off eBay but they didn't do anything. I think they were fake and I give up trying to look for them now because I have no idea who is a genuine seller and who isn't :-( it's frustrating because they are really cheap in the US!
If you can afford it I'd go for professional treatment at your dentist, if I could afford it I'd do it no questions asked.
there's nothing you can buy in the UK over the counter that will do anything. That's because bleach levels over a tiny amount are outlawed except when used by dentists. You know, the person with years of training in looking after teeth.
