Re: Braces + Getting Pregnant

I could see delaying braces if you were already pregnant... but delaying a pregnancy because you have braces?

Re: I'm little confused

Two professional whitening treatments in one year is usually fine. Especially if it's a one day treatment. Was this in office, or a take home system?

It's probably become the third biggest religion in North America, despite have literally zero science to back up any concern ove...
