    I am close to fifty years old. I just had a dental appointment and they acted like grey teeth at fifty was
    not normal. They asked if I took medication as a
    child when the teeth were forming. I did not take any
    type of med that could make your teeth turn grey.

    In fact I had very white teeth as a child. I thought aging
    and grey teeth went hand in hand. Is it possible that
    fibro/CFS bring on grey teeth?

    So many people use the teeth whiteners I am not sure how
    teeth look at fifty. I am thinking of using the whitener
    but I am concerned about the chemicals being used. Is
    it safe long term?

    Crest White Strips are easy to use and safe. The main ingredient is peroxide.

    hey are talkng about Tetrocyclenye stains and there is nothing you can do about that! There is a Rembrandt whitening kit that did the best in a Dental trade journal in a study (I used to be in the dental business)you probably do have staining. Beware if you have sensitive teeth though this can cause it to be worse and don't leave it on longer than recommended. Theses products are mainly peroxide so they are safe. Lynn

    I am not completely convinced the whiteners are safe longterm.
    I wonder if the whiteners can make teeth porous and teeth
    end up like a magnet and getting more stains-unless one
    keeps using the whitener. If the whiteners can make teeth
    sensitive it must be doing something harsh I would think.

    What about lasers for getting teeth white? Isn't this what
    wealthy people use?

    But I had a lot of problems with my mouth being too moist and the strips not sticking well. I hated waiting the 30 minutes. I have gone through only half the box. My dentist said teeth will darken as we age.

    I want to finish it up, but I just hate sitting there for those 30 minutes.

    I really couldn't tell that much difference. My one front tooth is a crown and I'm just trying to get my teeth to match the crown I have had since 1978.
