I was thinking about trying some. My teeth are stained from drinking too much black tea and can't afford the dentist treatment so going to try these and a few other tips I've read on the internet.
The last time I spoke to the dentist about teeth whitening he said mine weren't too bad and should be able to get a lot of the stain off with whitening toothpaste which I always use but I've still been drinking the black tea, so I'm going to give it up.

I asked about this on hitched and was told that some people get a reaction where you gt a zinging pain in your teeth that can last quite a while afterwards - they described as being ratehr horrendous and I decided not to try it. I have some stains on my teeth that someone said sounds like the type you get from taking a certain AB, which is annoying

I've found some that seem to get good results so I'm going to try them. Fingers crossed.
I'm also going to try using baking soda and hydrogen peroxide.

The latter is what they ended up recommending. I have both ready to use but haven't got that far yet. Good luck - hope you don't get the zinging!

Thanks, I'll give anything a try atm. I'll have to teach myself to like tea with milk as well. I'll let you know in a couple of weeks how I've gotten on.

Yep, I used Crest Supreme strips off EBay about 3 years ago, they definitely worked but I did get the tingling after about 5 days so I dropped to once a day rather than twice a day and that was OK. I think I did it for about 8 days altogether.
Haven't really done it since (have used them a couple of days in a row then forgot!!!) and my teeth are still whiter than they were! I can find some before and after pics if you like

Yes I used crest white strips before my wedding. Once a day for a week and then once a week after that. I had no zinging or paid at all.
