My Teeth Whitening Experience

I have always wanted pearly white teeth. Maybe my obsession with having white teeth came from watching too much trashy reality tv. The cast always have very white teeth on those programs. That could be why I am always in the pursuit of extra white teeth.

I know most of these celebs go for teeth whitening with Invisalign. I read that somewhere anyway. However, the treatment option has never been offered to me, and if it is offered, I know I will be turning down. I hear it is a lot of money to get them done and to be honest, I don’t think I need that much work done. Great dental clinics like this Whitby dentist, do offer affordable payment plans for those who need it. So if you are interested in having your teeth whitened, don’t let the price tag scare you. Do your research and find out the best payment plan for your budget.

My Teeth Whitening Experience

I have had my teeth whitened twice now. The first time was in 2012. I had it done at a very posh private clinic and I was very happy with the results. I was given home kits to take away with to use for about 2 weeks. My teeth went many shades whiter! I was so impressed!  For £200, it was money well spent in my eyes! I didn’t have to deal with teeth sensitivity at all, which was great too.

As the years have gone by, with all the eating and drinking. I needed to have a top up session done. So I booked a teeth whitening session with our dentist some months ago. I paid a bit more than £200 this time. I had a teeth whitening session for 1 hour at the clinic, and I was given a teeth whitening kit to use for 3 days at home. However, this experience was so different from my first. I felt the 1 hour teeth whitening session at the dentist was not as effective. There was little or no difference. I didn’t notice any difference but the dentist did.

The home kit given to me was also very difficult to use. It made my teeth so sensitive, I had to stop using it. I didn’t have this issue the first time I had my teeth whitened, so I found this new experience very confusing. It is frustrating that the money spent looks wasted.

I will probably look at having my teeth whitened again in future but I need to be able to see a clear difference.

 

Have you ever had your teeth whitened before? Were you happy with the results?

Yes or No to Cosmetic Surgery

Have you ever considered having cosmetic surgery done or have you had any work done already? I have not had any work done but I have considered having some work done at various points in my life.

At one point in my life, I considered having some wobbly bits done up, but I keep changing my mind. I am not sure if I would ever gone ahead with cosmetic surgery, but it is something that crosses my mind quite regularly, so it may happen some day.

Some people think, anyone who has cosmetic surgery done has insecurity issues, but I disagree. I believe majority of us, especially women, have a thing or 2 they we are insecure about, but I don’t think that necessarily would drive us to have cosmetic surgery done, if we do not want it done for other reasons.

As for me, I am very happy and comfortable in my skin. I have fallen completely in love with myself but there are still some parts of me,of my body, I would love to enhance if possible. I have had some other beauty enhancement treatments done, like my teeth whitened and laser hair removal treatment on my chin. And I can see myself having top-ups of those treatments and some more later in life. I found these treatments easy to do, and I didn’t have to recover from them, I could carry on as normal, and that is very important when I have 2 very active toddlers to deal with. I can’t afford to have a procedure that would leave me off work or on bed rest. It just can’t happen for now.

Cosmetic surgery can be done on various parts of our body, with the breasts, nose, buttocks, and lips and face being the most popular features for treatment. The ears are also becoming a very popular part to have some cosmetic surgery done thanks to the innovative Earfold treatment also known as Ear Pinning, which is simply an innovative alternative treatment for those with prominent ears.

Most of us know all about cosmetic surgery, the various types, and the pros and cons of having cosmetic surgery done. I know a few people in real life that have had their breasts and lips done, and they look great. Like I said in my previous post, I think the decision to have cosmetic surgery done is a personal choice, and as long as it is an enhancement and it makes you feel better about yourself, then it is definitely worth doing, if you can afford it. Just own it!

I think people, especially women who have had some work done, are judged too harshly by the general public. There are many reasons why someone would love to have a form of surgery done, and they may not always be for the vain reasons we tend to think.

What I would say is that you need to do your research, and read up the facts about the cosmetic surgery treatment before undergoing it.

What are your thoughts on this topic? Will you ever consider having cosmetic surgery done? Have you had any work done?

Product Review: 3D Crest Glamorous Whitestrips

I have been using the 3D Crest Glamorous Whitestrips for over 2 weeks now, and I can see a clear difference in the colour of my teeth. I have previously mentioned how I would love to have my teeth whitened again. I had a teeth whitening procedure done a few years ago, and it completely changed my smile for the better. So I was thinking of having a top-up procedure done, but not had the opportunity to do that, so I was very happy to have the opportunity to try out the 3D Crest Glamorous Whitestrips.

 

 

I must confess, I was a bit sceptical at first. I have used so many dental products with promises of a whiter smile only for them to perform way below expectation. In most cases, I noticed no difference at all, so I although I was happy to try out these whitening strips, I did have my hopes up.

The 3D Crest Glamorous Whitestrips formally known as Crest Advanced Vivid, is designed to whiten natural teeth 25X better than a leading teeth whitening toothpaste.

 

 

The pack also included a pack of Oral B Glide 3D White Whitening + Scope Flavour Floss.

 

 

Here are my thoughts –

 

PROS

  1. I love the compact packaging. It is so easy to pop the Whitestrips satchets and Floss pack in a bag.
  2. The Whitestrips are very easy to use. My pack came with 28 strips for 14 treatments(1 upper and 1 lower). I use the strips once a day for 30 minutes. They are easy to put on and take off.
  3. The Whitestrips work. I started to notice a difference after 4 treatments, and my teeth is now a lot whiter since I completed the 14 treatment.
  4. The Whitestrips have an advanced seal technology that provides a strong firm grip.
  5. The Whitestrips are very comfortable. I can go about my day as normal when I have them on. I can talk and even drink water with them on.
  6. The Oral B Glide 3D White Whitening + Scope Flavour Floss performs amazingly well. It gets rid of any food stuck in between the teeth and it leaves a fresh breath.

 

 

CONS

  1. I experienced a bit of teeth sensitivity while using the strips, which is perfectly normal when using a teeth whitening product. It disappeared after a few days.

 

 

I would recommend the 3D Crest Glamorous Whitestrips to anyone in need of a brighter smile. It is a very effective and convenient way of whitening your teeth. A trial will convince you!
