You get various ones... some with a bluelight thingy...some with a dye I think... I wouldn't bother with the toothpastes...it'd take forever... first choice is the dentist... best option.

lol

nothing on the market will give the results a dentist will

also brush your teeth more and tea might not stain, chew some gum or something, also brush your teeth at night because tea can stain during the night :)

The commercial ones are no use - they are bleach alternatives AFAIK and dont actually clean the teeth - they just barely change the colour of the cr@p on your teeth. The dentist is best - but I do know that there are so called professional whitening products at Pharmacies like Dischem.

Dischem, think I seen them at P&P with the toothpaste...

Why not try an oral hygenist? No clue what they are though... I was just told to go by my ex cause my teeth are becoming coffee coloured... cause I drink to much coffee.

Pretty much the same here tea etc - its starting to annoy me so I'm just seeing what my options are :p - will try the home shizness first - if that dont work well i'll pop in to the dentist - its just 8-6 every day dont leave me that much time...

Thanks

Those strips you keep on your teeth for 20 mins a day for about 2 weeks work. Just hope you don't get a phone call when you have them on. I used some in the US and my teeth definitely got whiter. Impressed a friend who had paid a few hundred dollars to a dentist to make his teeth whiter. Probably around R100 here.

I'm told the dentist route can be mad painful.

Also, if you have fillings then they might stand out more with white teeth since the fillings are mixed to match the yellowness of your teeth.

No, more than that as the kit cost about 30US so R250 here.

I read somewhere you should make a paste of strawberries and some baking soda.
Can't remember where I read it though.
