I am writing this with Crest White Strips on my teeth. I find them very uncomfortable so I decided to distract myself by blogging.
I’m not sure why these white strips are so problematic for me, but I have an awful time getting them to stick to my teeth. I have to avoid talking or closing my mouth when I have them on or else they seem to lose their grip on my chompers.
To help with issue, I have started using a paper towel to remove as much moisture as possible from my teeth before I put on the white strips. If you’ve never tried this before, I would recommend it just to see what it’s like. It is a very bizarre feeling.
I’ve taken a poll among family and friends and it seems as though I am the only one who has such difficulty with this teeth whitening process.
I guess my teeth are shaped funny.
I know that makes me sound quite attractive, so I would just like to clarify that I had braces and my teeth are straight. I don’t look like a jack-o-lantern.
I really detest these white strips.
On the bright side, they are preventing me from eating, which I’ve already done enough of today.
I really want some chocolate.
My 30 minutes is up. I can’t wait to pull these things off.
My teeth had better be so sparkly by next week that you need sunglasses to look at me.
Y’all come back,
If you darken the rest of the world, the teeth will look proportionally brighter by contrast.
This might be easier than the strips.
Haha true! Maybe I should look into that…
I have trouble with them, too. They stick to my teeth ok, but after a few minutes, I’m drooling, LOL!
Me too! I don’t know why I have so much difficulty!
I can’t get them to stick to my teeth either! I do the same as you – no talking or closing my mouth. Will have to try the paper towel method 😛
Glad I’m not the only one!
Here’s a tip: you can buy inexpensive whitening trays at the drugstore, put the white strips on and then the trays over them. It’ll keep the strips in place and you won’t drool!
Great idea! I am definitely going to try that. Thanks!
