My teeth aren’t actually orange, but they are definitely a little stained from all the Diet Coke + tea that I drink. I was getting another night guard made from my new dentist (Dr. Kezian, the same guy who does the Larchmont Lending LIbrary!) so we went ahead and got some trays molded for at-home Zoom Whitening.

I’ve actually had my chompers bleached in a 1-hour office session twice before, and I think I prefer that. Just because the pain you experience is over and done with quicker (one day instead of 4-5) and you don’t have to go ALL WEEK eating foods that won’t stain your teeth. I’ve been munching on a lot of popcorn, Veggie Grill Fries, vanilla ice cream…

The sensitivity has been kinda excruciating so I’m taking a few days off until after the holidays to keep the treatment going.  Yesterday I walked past a guy cutting metal and almost curled into a fetal position on the sidewalk.

I agree, it’s a little painful. I’ve never done 4-5 days in a row either!

Are you going to stop drinking diet soda then? I used to drink diet pepsi so much, but have been off of that stuff for about a year now././//

Uh…no.

I use Rembrandt toothpaste and get regular kudos from my dentist of how minimal my staining is given my coffee habit. No doubt, if I were in the biz, I would need to do the full she-bang.
