Teeth, like the rest of our bones, are supposed to be bone-coloured, but the beauty industry would have us believe they’re supposed to be 'arctic white'. Do you use teeth whitening products? Why or why not?

No, I don't use them. It's not for any rational reason either, I just have this weird fear that it would do something bad to my teeth. Like that by removing the ivory colour from them it'd be removing the goodness. For a more reasonable example, see brown bread vs white bread...

I know. It's silly.
LOL, I see your reasoning. ;)

I am fairly sure they would damage my teeth. I just play it safe ;-)

No. The dentist tries to sell me them when I go for a checkup but I'm not interested. My teeth are healthy so they're fine.
I use too, now I just buy for my son.
He really likes them.
Vain boy!
I don't consume red wine or coffee. And I don't smoke. So my teeth are rather white as they are. I know there are some quality teeth whitening products out there - and I would only use teeth whitening from a dentist.
I don't do any of those things either, but don't underestimate the effect of genetics. Some people's teeth grow in less white no matter what they do.
No I don't but I have considered giving them a try.
Up until a few years ago, I would not have needed this as the one comment I used to get when younger was what a lovely smile/teeth I have.

However, once again (and I am getting like a broken record here), as I get older, teeth are going yellow.

I did consider it a few years ago but only with my dentist doing it as I do not feel it is tested enough if not done by laser.

At the time the dentist agreed that they do not know long term effects from doing this, but I asked him again this year and his attitude seems to have changed. He quoted about $300 plus, so at the time I decided against it.

However I have a friend who is a dentist in Sydney and on one trip he did a laser whitening treatment for me -it was great but only lasted a short time.

So, currently am not using this product.

It can be ridiculously expensive!
