My mate did, have to admit I have no respect for him anymore.

Wise up Neil.

0 |

Off the bines and spotted a cheap deal going... reckon it'll help with quitting too.

0 |

Neil my gf bought stuff from the net that does it. Her sister is a dental technician so its decent stuff.

If you want the details let me know and i will find out

0 |

If and when I quit fegs, this is my treat to myself.

Not in a vanity way, but if I'm not going to be a smoker anymore, why should I be rocking about with the teeth of a smoker?

Did she have to get a gumshield made up and do a course of it??

My mate who works in pharmaceuticals got my some top end stuff ages ago from someone he dealt with who supplies dentists etc, but I never used it as you need to get a gumshield made and do a course of it for it to work... would rather just go and get something done in one go though.

0 |

Don't lie, you've gone all tech geek at the idea of someone shooting lasers at your teeth.

0 |

Yeah, I'm not doing it for looks or anything like that... I just want to see something instant as a reward and get rid of as much of the affects of smoking as possible.

0 |

haha... that too mmurray!

0 |

Was supposed to quit this week too but my ma brought me back 200 duty free. Oh well.

0 |

I did, I got it done at the dentist just before I had to replace two crowns ..did a cracking job.

0 |

You should get it done at the dentist, they make proper gum shields, and internet bleach is too severe.

0 |

lol @ internet bleach

0 |

Internet carbamide peroxide even..

0 |

aye, I'm thinking I'd rather get someone who knows what they were doing.

Where'd you get it done TF + how much?

0 |

My dentist. £300.

0 |

I get my teeth cleaned and polished every couple of months and the hygienist always advises me not to get it done as it weakens the enamel and leaves your teeth really sensitive. Still considering it though, vanity knows no bounds.

0 |

I also get mine cleaned and polished once every 3 months.

0 |

fuck that this stuff costs about£40- you get your own gumshield and sort it yourself

0 |

Makes fuck all difference if you still drink tea and coffee.

0 |

I was using a blue light treatment in a gum shield, with bleach stuff. Don't recommend it. I'd like to get mine properly done, I've wee tiny teeth, you can barely see them past my big blubber lips anyway, so im in no rush.

0 |

does cleaning and polishing do much in terms of whiteness?

0 |

It does takki, makes a hell of a difference when combined with a decent whitening toothpaste. Although I don't smoke so may not be as effective for smokers.

0 |

i done it, results are amazing and have lasted. i used this - www.crestwhitestrips.c...

but i got my trays made by my dentist.

use sensodine toothpaste for about 2 weeks before you start and you won't feel the sensitivity.

my teeth went from pirate teeth to b1, the whitest natural shade possible. seriously they are now about 12 or more shades whiter. the shade on the left of this chart is what they are now - leeannbrady.com/wp-con...

before bleaching they were almost all the way over on the right.

couldn't be happier.

Got it done at the dentist, tray an a few weeks of gel syringes. Cost 250 afair, it started to really hurt so only did half the course, might go back to it. Don't smoke when you have the bleach tray's in, im no chemist, but the gases that reacted with the bleach make u ill.

0 |

Yes Takki.. 16 quid for a scale and polish from an NHS dentist.

0 |

go to the 'kits', Nite WHite ACP 10 o used - www.crestwhitestrips.c...

0 |

I just bought 14 strips of that crest stuff on ebay for 6.99. pure bargain considering most people are charging that for one pouch, which is only two strips. Ill let you know how i get on. Someone else told me they use them too and she has the whitest teeth ever.

0 |

I had those crest strips before going to the dentist, not really much use i found. To get the beniit you need to leave the bleach on all night and i'd always lick the strips of my teeth in my sleep.

0 |

I used the Crest strips for a while before the wedding, and found them great.

Got the proper gumshield and bleach done through the dentist years ago, and thought it was a waste of money, didn't really notice a major difference.

Link Kate?

What dentist do you use TF?

0 |

lol ss you'll look "uber cool" when hooked up to that bottle of pressurized oxygen or dying from lung cancer dude.

0 |

He will have my respect

0 |

TF where is this dentist? I get boned about 30 from Braden oh but unfortunately have to see the dentist first and she wants the same. 60 dabs for a yr teeth are grand statement and a decent clean. Too dear

0 |

Dentists aren't as dear as I thought tbh. I was referred to a surgery on Lisburn Road for widsom teeth extraction. Consultation last month with x-rays etc then last week in for extraction of two teeth under sedation. £88. I was bracing (lol) myself for hundreds.

0 |

I've been thinking about getting my teeth whitened for a brave while now. Have semi quit the fegs but still end up smoking sometimes when I'm drinking. Will get them done when I make the final step and give them the boot altogether.

0 |

This is the dentist.. remember to go NHS.

Cheers TF

0 |

been thinkin this myself but even though i have not had a smoke in a while i still drink lots of beer, coffee and tea so it would probably be a waste of money.

0 |

i still have loads of the whitening gear left and still have my trays. all i need is to use it one night every few months and they're back to white as can be.

don't let leading a fun life stand in the way of getting your teeth whitened.

0 |

You should write a book aLEGEND.

0 |

I am flat out on the espresso so doubt it would make much of a lasting impact. The missus used the crest strips off eBay a handful of sessions and now her teeth can't handle hot or cold very well.

0 |

i got the crest strips off ebay as welll and only wore them 4 times. they made my teeth very sensitive and im not sure if theyve properly recovered.

0 |

what should it be about ryan.d ? teeth whitening?

get your missus to use sensodyne toothpaste lemac. i don't know why people live with sensitive teeth when literally all you have to do is use sensodyne and you'll no longer have sensitive teeth.

0 |

and sensodyne toothpaste doesn't have SLS, the controversial toxic foaming agent used is all other brands.

0 |

it still indicates that a problem is being creating and perhaps a person may not want to mask that problem by the use of a specific type of toothpaste.

0 |

'Teethal Weapon' by aLEGEND is available from Centra.

0 |

Calling sds toxic is a bit harsh, it can cause irritation in people with sensitive skin. I used piles of it for about a year in my PhD, no need for it to be used in a fume cupboard/ glove box or anything like that.

0 |

Just went into the dentist round the corner from work there... looking over £500 for teeth whitening!!! =/

So do youz reckon I should maybe try the cleaning and polishing before looking at the whitening?

0 |

i'd def get them scaled and polished before whitening them, that stuff i linked is the same stuff your dentist is trying to charge hundreds for. like. the exact same stuff.
