Great Success

Today, I decided to finally bleach my teeth. After 45 minutes of stinging pain, my teeth are still yellow as ever. My gums, on the other hand, are opaque white. FML

Teeth bleaching is the worst thing you could do to your teeth and gums. If you want whiter teeth, make a dentist appointment for a proper teeth cleaning. There's no short cuts to decent dental hygiene.

Next time, try NOT using actual bleach...

Actually tooth whitening isn't terrible for you, your teeth, or your gums if done properly in a dental office. Proper oral hygiene does not lift stains, it just prevents gingivitis and cavities, a cleaning is called a prophylaxis because it's preventative, as the word implies. Proper whitening is gone with a gingival barrier in offices. The worst to happen is sensitivity which, in the worst cases, can last a month, the norm is a couple days. I work in the field, have used in office whitening on multiple patients, and have never had inferior results with proper application.

Exactly this. I am currently sitting here with bleaching trays in, fitted trays made by my dentist, and the bleaching gel from them. The first few times is a learning process but it takes more than just one application of home-whitening to see a difference. I just finished my third tube and will likely get another pack of 3 after 6 months to give my teeth (and gums) a rest from the chemicals. The trick is getting the gel ONLY on your teeth and not on your gums. I learned that with the first attempt at this. Please please see your dentist and get directions from them for home-whitening or let them do it. It's much better in the long run.

Thank you for the correction.

How much research did you do before doing it?

Tooth enamel, the outer layer, is white. The dentin beneath it is naturally yellow. Tooth bleaching works by dissolving a tiny amount of (presumably) stained enamel. If the enamel is thin, the yellow of the dentin shows through. You REALLY should’ve consulted a dentist before stripping all the enamel off your teeth.

At least they remained opaque. If your gums went translucent or transparent, that would be super-creepy — your mouth would look like an x-ray *cringe*

Uuuuhhhh.....not an expert here but maaaayyybeeee you should have put the product on your...you know....TEETH. Not gums. Just a wild thought.

I don't think you are supposed to gargle bleach to whiten your teeth... maybe it's just me.

Didn’t you learn from Ross? Bleaching your teeth can go horribly wrong. Just ask his FRIENDS

instructions unclear. penis stuck in toaster.
