    does anyone know how to use these things? i got them off ebay out of curiosity.

    i know it should be simple as in you just place them on your teeth, but they seem slightly too tall to cover just the teeth. is it thus ok if they're in contact with the gums above/below the teeth?

    I've heard nothing but excessively raving comments about them. Excellent products.

    i found a more detailed manual inside the box today and it seems you're meant to fold any excess strip behind the teeth.

    my teeth are pretty normal but i just thought it would be fun to do; i got these premium plus ones which are the most powerful i think. i'll give an update on if they actually work because although i've heard good stuff about them, i do wonder how great they actually are.

    Because you can't get this particular brand in the UK. Too strong, I think..

    i've got a pair of the things in right now. it is basically a strip of bleech you stick over your teeth, but i keep getting a bit concerned because when in the mouth and folded back over the teeth, there's an inevitable mix of saliva with the gel on the strips which loosens them a bit.. i think i'm swallowing some bleech. ah well.

    after 3 days there's a distinct difference; they seem almost a clean white rather than a fake bleach white. but it's meant to be a 10 day thing, so i'm scared that in a week's time i'll look at a **** who eats tipex.

    We can't have Brits with white teeth. It just wouldn't conform to (inter)national stereotypes.

    i think so, as in it won't make dental work such as crowns or veneers etc any whiter.

    if anyone wanted an update/review of the product, i've been doing it for 9 out of the 10 days you're meant to and i can already see significant whitening effects. my teeth weren't discoloured or anything beforehand, just bought out of boredom and wanted to see if they really worked. but i actually think they do. it's not like my teeth are the colour of tipex, but that's what i think it means by saying it restores teeth to a natural whiteness which is quite cool. so i'd definitely recommend them.
