|I will be interested to see what people say. Since I had a root canal on my front tooth, it's gotten pretty grey. I'm looking for a solution myself|
Well I'm thinking of getting composite bonding... which is kind of like veneers but way cheaper. They apply resins or something on your teeth and dry it up and shape it nicely.. They can also put a whiter colour to whiten up the teeth. Apparently is there is very little little pain.

I had composite bonding done as I had a pretty wide gap at the side of my lower teeth. My dentist had advised me to be careful when biting into hard foods like apple as it can chip the 'fake' teeth. I was cautious when I first had them, but I realised that its not as fragile as my dentist said it was, I ate normally, hard foods or otherwise with no problems. However, I noticed after some time (I've had them for 2 odd years or so), the 'teeth' can indeed shift, revealing a bit of gap that was initially concealed by it, so you might want to take notice of this. As for the whitening effect, it might not work as well as veeners as its less resilient to stains forming. As for teeth whitening using bleaching by a dentist, it'll have to depend on your original teeth colour. If your natural teeth already is predisposited to be more greyish/yellowish, the effect won't be as good as teeth have a limit as to how white they can go, and teeth that are naturally greyish/yellowish (there's actually a medical name for such a condition, but I can't recall it now) have smaller posibilities to getting really white compared to those that don't have predipositions of such problems.

For maintenance, Crest/Colgate toothpaste with whitening and tartar control.
It's easy, cheap, and whitens.

| Awesome post! |
I have been wondering the same thing! I have used Crest Whitestrips before and they worked well for me.
How much does it usually cost to get your teeth whitened professionally at the dentist though?
