Just bleached teeth and they are in agony! ... Feels like I have been sucking on ice cubes all afternoon! .. All because the lady has a date next week! .. pmsl! ..:E

(DO NOT TRY THIS WITHOUT CONSULTING YOUR DENTIST! .. YOU NEED PROPER GUM TRAYS AND THE CORRECT % OF BLEACHING!) ..

Have you bleached your teeth recently? .. :E

These treatments are great for dentists' business, in the short term and in the long term. They weaken your teeth. Sorry.

I thought letting a guy get close enough to see the whites of yer teeth was not considered 'proper' conduct on the first date! ;)

I went through teeth whitening back in 2001, I was warned if you had sensitive teeth it could be agonising thankfully I don't. They also said at the time it would probably need doing every 2 to 3 years I haven't needed to.
I didn't go to a Hollywood white that would be daft but they really do look so much nicer now.

By the time I hit 50 I'll have something akin to a row of condemned house occupying my cakehole but since I don't do the 'smiling' thing it makes little difference what they look like. My dentist is more concerned about the flipping things than I am, but then she is making money out of them..........and she is rather nice to gaze at, couple of nice points about her too.;)


Her lovely eyes and her sexy Portuguese accent!

Whitening yer pegs! Gawd almighty.

Good, healthy tooth enamel is creamy-yellow in colour. White is definitely NOT right. As has been said earlier, bleaching your teeth simply damages them. It's just not worth it.

Once upon a time a girl just had to worry about a bit of war paint and a good hair do before going on a date. But teeth bleaching? Yeuch! :}

Radar, I was shocked that no one so far had used the bad teeth icon!

Catcha, I really hope your date goes well and was worth the agony!

hellsbrink
18th Jan 2009, 00:12

On that note, why do so many women feel they have the need to slap on so much warpaint when they plainly don't need to make themselves "look better"?

(I use my stepkids as a perfect example of that. Or am I strange for preferring the "natural" look?)

No no no, not at all - I completely agree in fact. :ok:

However, you absolutely correctedly put the word 'natural' into inverted commas. It can take a LOT of hard work, time and investment to look 'natural'.

THIS (http://www.myspaceantics.com/images/funny/hairy-girl.jpg) is natural.... and THIS (http://rambodoc.files.wordpress.com/2007/08/sexy-woman.jpg) is the type of 'natural' that we women aspire to be! :)

Female loaded with warpaint trowelled into the cracks, fake tan (or the "sunbed kipper" variety) reeking of perfume,and a half-hundredweight of tin and cut-glass festooned on her ears/bosom/neck/fingers/wrists...Oh, and the plunging neckline revealing acres of wobbling, crepey flesh


ALL screams DESPERATE and HIGH MAINTENANCE and VAIN.

Nowt wrong with a little enhancement of nature's charms,but subtlety is the key, IMO. (perhaps that's why I'm on my tod? :hmm:


Haven't visited the fang-snatcher for about 20 years,when I couldn't get a logical and comprehensive argument asto why it was necessary to have a week off work so my "impacted" wisdom -teeth could be removed.


Despite the con-man's threats, I'm a couple of Grand ahead, still have the wisdom teeth still have the ones that he hadn't drilled and filled.

How do I take seriously, a profession that:-

promotes tooth whitening (as above posts)

waffles in "mumbo jumbo"-Calculus....sorry, matey, us plebs reserve that for "big sums" (not the ones we pay you)...you mean "scale" or "tartar"

"impacted" NO, they're growing OUTWARD-not getting bashed into my mouth with a big hammer

"erupt(ed) /(ing) NO, They're frickin TEETH ,NOT Mount sodding Vesuvius.

Patronising load. Sorry, should have been on the rant thread, but it's sort of on -topic

Went to the dentist for the first time in a while a couple of months ago.

'when did you last visit a dentist Ms Radar?'

'not telling you til i'm back up and out of this chair :hmm:'

'I only asked because all you need doing is a bit of cleaning from our hygienist due to your red wine habit and your history of smoking, and you happen to be the first person that I have met your age that hasn't had any fillings and doesn't need any fillings! So, again, when did you last visit a dentist Ms Radar??'

'15 years ago - BYEEEEE!!' :}

Beatriz Fontana

There was a theory that did the rounds a while back that the more a woman used war paint, cleanser, face creams and the like, the more she'd age. The natural look means one maintains their looks for longer.

Other benefits of not wearing the stuff is more beer time and not shocking the boyfriend the following morning. With me, as the saying goes, WYSISYG!

Sorry, minor thread drift there...

PatrickH & hellsbrink - if you saw my dentist, you'd want to go back every six months. Best looking tooth puller I ever set eyes on.

My teeth needed whitening, not all of them but some. Antibiotics as a young child had led to discolouration and I don't care what you say a gleaming pair of teeth look a whole lot better than some of them being yellowed. It was awful for me I wouldn't smile as I didn't want anyone to see the couple of yellowed teeth I had. If that is vanity then fair enough I'm vain but I for one think it was well worth going through the 2 weeks of it and I smile all the time now :)

As for over made up young ladies couldn't agree more, as i tell my young nieces what they should do with make up is attempt to make it look like you aren't wearing any.

I dont wear alot make-up i hate the stuff .. its like putting glue on the face .. i just wear minimum! lipstick and a little eye liner .. I have a great complexion thanks to the outdoors and horses lols .. my teeth are great too, i just like them to be clean and sparkling .. i have a polish every three months at the dentist .. the bleaching is done once a month and keeps them slightly brighter than they are .. so the males know a lot about make up then! .. whats your brand/ .. :E
