I just got my braces off and my teeth are straight, but they’re yellow! Will anything help whiten my teeth?
Bummer. But wait—it’s probably not as bad as you think, and there are ways to turn those pearlies white. William Hull, DDS, says bleaching brightens teeth that are discolored, stained or darkened. The chemical solution is an oxidizing agent that is painted onto the teeth, and a special light activates the agent.
There are two types of bleaching. Chair side bleaching is done at the dentist’s office in a few half-hour visits. With Nightguard bleaching, a mouth guard is made for the patient to wear at night with pre-measured amounts of bleaching gel. The American Dental Association confirms that bleaching is safe but recommends a dentist supervises the treatment.

I agree with the others, try the Whitening Strips! They are kind of expensive (the smallest box of Colgate Whitening Strips is about $20!) but they'll last you almost three weeks! Just remember that teeth whitening can make your gums sensitive, so switch your toothpaste, as well! (I recommend Colgate Sensitive!)
Hope this helps!

I'm sooo worried about getting my braces off, cause i'm afraid that i will have those stains on my teeth. i'm not that consisitent on brushing as i should be, if they already formed could i brush like a ton and they would go away????? help

i have braces too. i just got them on in January this year. they actually don't hurt as bad as i thought they would. i'm def. worried about having stains and yelllowed teeth but i guess i have to wait and see... the thing is i have white satins on my front teeth that goes about half-way up the tooth because i used to eat toothpaste when i was little. lol. my dentist and orthodontist said they can't be removed because they are on a certain layer of my teeth ( or something like that) so it's impossible to remove them. :'[. i can't wait until my braces are off!

I'm getting my braces off soon so I'm stocking up on whitening strips now! Braces are nasty.
thanks bruinswimmer13 i'll have to try your idea

Hey you know instead of going to the dentist/ortho and paying to get it done, there is a much simpler solution:
Try mixing one tbsp salt with 2 tbsp of baking aoda. Brush the mixture on your teeth and voila!! You will be surprised at how much whiter your teeth are. It may take a few times to get them as white as you want, so do it once a day until they you are happy with how they look. Use this trick whenever you want your teeth to look a little whiter and shine a little brighter!!

i still have three baby teeth and one of them on top hurts so much after i brush. Is it cuz i brush too hard?
by swimmergirl101 on 5/16/2009 12:28:46 AM
I would definately try the dentist bleeching before whitening strips. It will work more quickly, and you will for SURE get your money's worth. That is just my opinion thought. And Also to REBECKAGRL21, I would try stronger deoderent. I would also keep it in your locker or back pack at school. I used to have this problem, but as long as I shower everyday and keep deoderent with me at school to have, i'm good. Hope this works.

ya smartcookie36 and hannahmac i agree completely, plus getting them whitened professionally is kind of time consuming, and they have those white strips that you can eat and drink with now.
by hyperpuppy on 5/15/2009 9:43:12 PM
thanks cuz i will be getting braces soon
by ypsichic10 on 5/15/2009 9:28:37 PM
i agree with smartcookie36......professional whitening is a whole lot of $$$$$ to spend......whitening strips are cheaper and easier......
by hannahmac on 5/15/2009 6:53:48 PM
I would just use whitening stripz
