Teeth whitening won't work - June 17th 2017, 04:48 AM

It's not like there's particularly anything wrong with my teeth or anything, but they just aren't all that white. They aren't noticeably unwhite, but I wish they were whiter. Anyway, I've been using an Arm and Hammer teeth whitener for almost a year (it got pretty good reviews online) and it just isn't working for me. I don't think they are any noticeably whiter than they were when I started. I suppose I could just accomplish this with a google search, but are they any other teeth whitening methods out there that gradually get your teeth whiter? I don't want to bleach them and have them suddenly shining, I think I'd appear kind of fake to people.
Could the teeth whitener be nullified by me consuming gatorade? Its not like I just sit here chugging gatorade or anything, but I drink a fair amount and its got a lot of acid in it.

Wish I lived in Canada. UPDATE, NOV. 9th, 2016: This statement has become even more appropriate.

i don't know about the gatorade thing, but if you're worried you could always just use straws for it instead, so it doesn't hit the front of your teeth. i'm a coffee addict and that's what i use to combat it staining my teeth.
i tried PlusWhite 5 minute speed whitening gel and it worked pretty well, but it left my teeth and gums super numb and sensitive. so i stopped using it and tried oil pulling. you should definitely google that and see if you'd be interested... it's basically a ~*natural teeth whitening method*~ where you swish coconut oil or some other oil around in your mouth for 20 minutes every morning. there's a lot of mixed feelings of it across the internet, but it worked for me. you won't get blindingly white teeth by any means, but there will be improvement. plus it actually cleans your entire mouth in the process, so you'll have fresher breath too.

i'm out of coconut oil and too broke to buy more, so what i've been using is just any toothpaste that claims to whiten teeth. i literally have like 3 of them that i switch between using every day, and that seems to be helping as well.

i don't know what i'm supposed to do
