Many people wants to have their teeth be so white that they have to go to the dentist and have laser and chemicals for their teeth. I talked to a dentists and she said that this can make the teeth really white but weaker. What would you prefer a yellowish teeth that is more stronger or a whiter teeth that is weaker?

I heard that it is painful when your teeth enamel is not that thick.

i just use natural method of teeth whitening like using baking soda once in a while. it has no side effect, at least for me, and it makes my teeth whiter. i don't want to use teeth whitening products that can be bought over the counter or from other stores, i just don't trust it. i don't want my teeth to get weaker.

As far as I am concerned, I think I prefer to have the white teeth in my life. For me, I think the teeth whitening may give me a good passion to do something else. If may teth are so black or yellow ,or some other colour, I think I will not be so confident to stand before people. I may not dare to open my mouth to say a word.

Personally I don't see what the big deal is. I don't go to the dentist as often as I should, but I'm not going to worry about "white" teeth. If I take good care of them that's all that should matter actually. Its better to have yellow teeth and occassionally answer the'are you a smoker' then it is to have white teeth that have been chimically altered.

OK, listen up. Teeth whitening should be a last resort. you should only take this step if your teeth are really bad and yellow. Most celebrities do this, well because they're in movies, TV shows, and etc. If you brush your teeth at least two times a day you should start to see improvement in your teeth color. You should not do teeth whitening if it is not necessary. They chemicals will weaken your teeth. I prefer just to brush everyday and night. So far that has worked.

Hi the color of the teeth will come natural based on our brushing. Why do you go for whitening. Its not advisable. Brushing can get u a white or ivory color based on the enamel. Just gently massage it for it will be stronger for gums and teeth. I prefer for the natural color of the teeth, yellow color comes only if proper brushing is not there.

I have thought many times about withening my teeth, as they're very yellow, but I have to save some money first. Those chemicals they use don't really weaken the teeth, so there should be no problem and nothing to be afraid when trying it

hi again! well, i really like my teeth and I care for them a lot, because I think they are the best part of my body :) well, I have never been to a dentist to have my teeth whitening, because I really don't think that i will look good with teeth white as a snow because my skin is oo dark for so white teeth :) but I brush my teeth at least two times per day and they are really very clean and nice :()

I actually want to have a white teeth for they look very attractive. Having white teeth can make a person more confident about himself/herself, especially about his/her smiles. If I will be given a chance to go to the dentist and have my teeth undergo a special procedure that can help whiten my teeth, I will surely grab that chance. The thing is, any procedures related to solving this problem cost too much. And I don't want to spend much for only that thing. Or maybe I should say, I don't have a lot of money to be spent for that.

i also wish o whiten my teeth coz mine is quite yellowish though they are nice and complete i just dont like the color coz i still find white teeth still nice. and i also see that white and complete teeth will also make a person lovely. its so expensive to whiten my teeth and so i guess i will just accept the fact that its yellowish what matter is its strong and complete.

I would prefer it to be whitened. I would prefer whiter teeth that is weaker maybe. Well, I would just take extra care after. I really badly want my teeth to be whitened because for me yellowish teeth looks dirty and it looks like you're not cleaning it.

I'd prefer yellowish teeth because I don't really place so high a value on my appearance. I like biting into hard food and knowing that my teeth will still be in tact instead of broken. I've tried those toothpastes that claim to whiten teeth but haven't seen any difference than the regular ones.

Teeth whitening is not very healthy as it removes the natural enamel of teeth's..... which is very imp to keep teeth's healthy.... if u want really white teeth's u can use natural cleaning agents such as salt for cleaning.... how ever doing whitening once in years is quite OK .... but dont make it a habit.

I tried a teeth whitening product and saw no difference, but I sure felt a difference. My teeth were sensitive to everything for weeks, before it finally wore off. If I'd seen a difference, that would be one thing. But because I didn't see a difference, I'm not doing that again.

I think I would go for the whiter teeth. I just really like keeping up with my apperience and I whiten my teeth once in a while with the teeth whitener you could buy from the store. That really works. But if your teeth are yellow chances are your teeth are already bad and weak so what will the whiten hurt.

if the teeth chew they are good enough for me, :) but i'd go for off white than yellow, that would be a little too bad for the person, means they don't have any enamel in their teeth which wouldn't do the person any good as that's what keeps them healtht
