From what ive seen , they are marketed as a floss replacement.
Im just gonna stick with the silk floss.
Worried about flossing now tho, as a dentist said that if your gums bleed, then the bacteria gets into your blood stream - Does that mean im going to get heart disease if my gums bleed when i floss?

Got mine through the dentist. Has worked really well so far half way through the course. It's called some bollocks like 'boutique' or something. £300 inc the mould

Been a while since the suggestions, anyone have experience with an off-the-shelf product that works?

Seems to be a lot of suspect insta ads using UV light, but suspect it's bullshit.

Want to get my teeth all white and right for when I return to work in year or so..

Crest Whitening strips from USA
Only thing that worked for me. I was sceptical but they do really work.

I spoke to my dentist who said the laser stuff is smoke and mirrors; your teeth get dehydrated and look white, until they get hydrated again

The ones that work are the at home whitening trays via the dentist. Apparently Enlighten is the best at the moment

Got some trays made up for £30 via postal service, and then bought Philips zoom whitening paste.

Pop in the tray and wear for a bit, decent results.

Teeth do feel a little sensitive for a little bit after, but cover them in toothpaste and in a couple of hours they feel fine.

Cheers, might have a look at the whitening strips, why only in the US though?

The crest strips are only available in the USA due to the strength. I got mine on Facebook marketplace from someone who’d brought them back from the states. I think they are widely available here on eBay
