I have trays made for my mouth a long time ago and bleached my teeth on and off many times through the years. I even did the treatment facility stuff. My teeth are generally pretty white as it is but I like them nice and perfectly white so I bought the gel at the dentists yesterday. I guess they increased the strength allowed for it and, boy, it is strong! The mucus membrane around my mouth was burning almost immediately and I was sure I was goings to have sores after I took it off. No sores, nothing, just whiter teeth right away LOL

D you bleach regularly?

I had it done at the dentist a year or so ago, but need to again. Have heard (& wondered) about hydrogen peroxide whitening (?) I've read that that's the main ingredient in most OTC whiteners.... and that if you simply dip a q-tip into it, wipe it onto teeth & leave it for 30-60 seconds every day, it works. I wonder....

Not with bleaching trays. Hydrogen Peroxide does the trick for me. I dont swish it daily though.

No. I tried an OTC one but it sucked and was uncomfortable. I don't think I made it through the whole regimen.
My teeth could most definitely use it.

I want to but I have two crowns and was told that I can't use it because it might mess up the crowns.

I'm going to do it again this afternoon. I can see the results right away. Love it! But I do hate the feeling of the goop on the teeth after I take the trays off and brush. Yuck!

The hydrogen peroxide mixed with baking soda works fine Steph.

I do, too. I wasn't told that, but I didn't ask either. Maybe it's just because they color match to the rest of your teeth. You could have sparkling white and yellowy crowns.

I got the stuff from the Dentist when my braces came off.

Used it overnight, no burning - no pain and pretty white teeth!

I have trays - have done it a couple of times. Love the results & was thinking about doing it again the next time I have an appt.

Sorry to hear about the burny-ness. I always try to be careful about how much I put in the trays, to minimize the amount that gets on my gums.

I thought I was putting very little on. I even thought I was putting too little on! They did warn me that it would be strong. I don't mind it too much because it only stays on for thirty minutes.

Didn't know some dentists sell it! Don't think mine does.

After reading this, think I'll keep my "yellow" teeth!

Nope, I did a long time ago and my dentist says it one of the reasons my teeth are so bad now. It's really harsh on your enamel.

Thirty minute 35% strength. I did it for the third time this morning and my teeth are sensitive but not too bad. Burning during processing is gone.

My teeth hurt if I use whitener. I do have some stains from my first set of braces. I have an appt in the next couple weeks just to have them get them off. I would do veneers, but I like to bite things and heard they'll come off.
