Home kits from the stores are totaly useless, there are two types of whitening from your dentist, one costs 400 and the other 200.

The 400 takes approx an hour and lasts about a year
The 200 you take home and apply top and bottom shields for 1 1/2 hrs every day for approx 4 weeks or until your teeth are as white as you want them and again lasts about a year.

The Shields have to be made but only take about a week..

I went for the 200 one and I'd set my alarm 2hrs before I had to get up, put in the shields which takes minutes to do and go back to sleep. My alarm clock has two settings so I could set it to wake up to put the shield in and do the other setting to wake me up when I had to get up..

Did it work.. yep brilliantly and I love the results, I thought i'd get fed up having teh shields in my mouth but by doign it early morning it never bothered me.

Well worth the money..

Also rather than wait a year and possibkly need to do a full course again you can buy a Syringe which lasts about 5 days and do a top up maybe every three or 4 months or longer, these cost 25.

I am so pleased I did mine but yeah definately avoid the shop ones, total waste of money

I had braces when I was in high school and when I got them off, I just felt like me teeth needed some "oomph". Haha. I used Crest Whitestrips for a week and my teeth have been pretty white ever since! I think they work great! Obviously, not something you want to use all the time, but if you only use like a box a year or two, I think you'll be fine

Good luck!

I've never done it but are there different levels of whitening?

I have seen some people with teeth that are impossibly white and its creepy. It looks unnatural especially when they always have a cup of coffee in one hand.

I say go for it if you are considering it. Just make sure you know the place thats doing it will do a good job and check out the side effects.

$201... LOL. I dont know which one is funnier... the $201 or $200.97
