I went yesterday and had my teeth whitened at the dentist. I have my best friend's wedding in September, my benefits totally cover it...why not?

OMG. I didn't know the bleach or whatever it is took the protective layer off the teeth. I didn't know teeth whitening could cause pain.

I had a hyper reaction to it. I was in agony after they took it all off. It took 2 advil, 2 coats of desensitizer a flouride rince just to get me out of the dentist office. I ate sensodine toothpaste and advil for the night. Every tooth felt like it was going to jump out of my head!

White teeth are not worth that. I will never ever ever do that again. I'll live with my teeth, no matter what colour they are!

I did one of those at home kits and it made my teeth hurt too.

This morning I tried this:

Diluted hydrogen peroxide. I should've taken a before picture, but I think my teeth look a little whiter. I guess I'll take a pic now and do it for a few days then take a pic.

This time around, my teeth don't hurt.

I did a whitening treatment I purchased from my dentist. My teeth have never been the same and I will forever have to use sensodyne.

Oh tooth pain is horrible. I am so sorry you went through that!!

I am showing this post to my 16 year old dd. She has perfect, beautiful teeth but has been bugging me to whiten them. I brush her off because honestly she already looks like Guy Smiley from Sesame Street. Whitening them would be overkill. Remember Ross and his teeth whitening in "Friends"? Yeah.. I am picturing that.

Maybe this will make her stop.

Talking to them, many people have the bleaching, and have no problem whatsoever. Some have some mild pain. My reaction was a hyper one, and I'll tell you, it is not worth it to me to EVER do that again.

I'm also a person that normally has my fillings done without I'm not a wuss when it comes to dental work. I never imagined whitening could cause such pain. i didn't even consider there could be a problem! There is no way for them to know if you will react or not.

I'm ok today, a couple of sensitive spots...but livable again. I'll just brush many times today with the sensodine to get them back to pain free. Last night, was not worth it. At. All. I was in tears and could barely talk. I couldn't even brush my teeth before bed last night, they were so bad. I was afraid to put the brush to them.

I'll live with my tea stains from now on, thanks!

I wouldn't brush everytime unless you are using a very soft toothbrush. In fact, I'd probably just rub it on, add a little water and swish it around your teeth.
