Default Teeth whitening....

morning campers !

This may seem a totally random request and is hardly a life or death situation....but, I have an "event" coming up in 2 weeks and I noticed my teeth are not exactly a gleaming set of pearly-whites - mainly i think from all the tea i drink. I have never smoked and being is riyadh, red wine doesnt exactly flow on every street corner...so tea is the offending substance methinks.

soooo.. can anyone, from experience, recommend (apart from a visit to dentist) an effective teeth whitening toothpaste or powder or substance that is easily available to buy ?

perhaps the ladies of the forum are better placed to advise on health & beauty topics, although all replies will be greatly appreciated and considered...

ta very much like...

That would leave a matt finish, not pearly shiny whites. A high quality Gloss would be required, like dulux 1 coat.

A polishing at the dentist would be the quickest way. The cost is 125 SR at Gama Dental Clinic, possibly a bit cheaper at another clinic. There is a product called Dentonic Tooth Powder, comes in a yellow container w/ green cap that can be bought at Tamimi, good stuff if you're a heavy tea drinker.

Thank you DesertOcean.....you are the one voice of wisdom in this ocean of drivell......

i'm off to crappy4 & tamimi on a mission to fine that yellow container w/green cap. will let you know how it goes.

and if that fails a bottle of clorox is cheaper than 125sr...

Can Brits even attain white teeth,
In the US Americans love to rag (all in good fun) on British teeth.
