Prepare to be Blinded

Sorry about my leave of absence. I’ve been extremely busy for the last week… bleaching my teeth, you know.

Have you seen the commercial with Jessica Alba talking about how she knows what she wants and what she really wants is for her foundation to match her skin? Well, what I really want is for my teeth to match my eyeballs.

The bleaching has been a process, I can tell you that. My gums feel as though I’ve been gnawing on Dippin' Dots (the ice cream of the future) for seven days straight. All in all, however, I am satisfied with the results.

Here’s the before shot:


No, there is not a cob of corn in my mouth. Those are my actual teeth.


And here’s the after:


And here’s a Crest White Strips Raptor:

They definitely look whiter for sure. The only bad side effect I've heard of from a dentist relative of mine is that they make your teeth more sensitive. Hopefully you won't have that problem.

Wow - they do look whiter! Are your teeth super sensitive? After using the stuff the dentist gave me, I feel like crying if I inhale - my teeth get so sensitive with that stuff! Maybe the Crest White Strips are not as strong and I should try those?!

i'm totally blind. and nice raptor, i love it. lol. i totally did the pro-bleach thing before my wedding, it was awesome. who cares about sensitivity when you've got pearls?

I hate to play the devil's advocate, but what will you do if the whites of your eyes turn yellow? Hee, hee, hee. You have a fabulous smile! I almost jumped out of my chair when I read you might move to Cedar. That's only like 40 min. from me! Yay! When will you know?

Kristy said...

Looks great! You are beautiful!

You're too funny.

Love it!!! My teeth are super sensitive like tara was saying, so i'm SO SO afraid to use any kind of whitening. Even if I use whitening tooth paste my teeth hurt! But yours look GREAT!

Aaaaagh! you have to warn me when the raptor is coming. I could barely see to begin with because of the blinding white teeth and then out of nowhere the raptor makes an apperance.

Wow beehoo! Your teeth look fantastic! I too wish my teeth were the color of my eyes. (not the green part) I can never seem to get the results i want. i guess i need to be more consistent for longer. Did you really just use the strips!? wow! my sisterinlaw uses bleaching tray bleach but doesnt have trays so she cuts and uses press n seal plastic wrap :S it works great. You look beautiful!

Shauni said...

Glad to see the raptor still lives. I still have many a fond teeth mark in my legs and bum thanks to that violent creature.

You teeth look great! I am in need of some serious bleeching action myself! My teeth used to be super white...(Did you ever see that "Friends" episode where Ross bleaches his teeth???)

I think I have been waiting to bleach my teeth until I lose all of my baby weight...does that sound weird? I feel like if I do it now it wont matter because I am gross everywhere else. :) So when my body is ready I can bleach my teeth and feel whole again! :) haha! Actually maybe I should bleech my teeth first and that will motivate me to work on getting back in shape faster???

Heather & Trevor said...

They look so great! What did you use? Crest? LOVE IT! I fee like I should do mine again....hmmm :)

adrienne said...

Oh, how I miss the raptor! Can't decide which one I miss the most, but it is probably "Stake Conference Raptor". Bridal Raptor was also excellent as was Seizing Raptor.

Your teeth look great. can't wait to see them up close and personal.

Rachel Evans said...

Oh my gosh! I am so glad that you put the raptor out there because I have been missing it! I hope that it comes out at the family reunion too! :) And your teeth look great! I will be sure to wear sun glasses next time I see you! lol

Your teeth look beautiful. Arent crest white strips awesome? I used them before my wedding. I probably should use them again but I probably wont. My son doesnt care what my teeth look like and he's really the only one I ever see. Anyways, great teeth!
