Yayyyyy!! Congrats :-88 :jump: :banana: :mrgreen:

That's very exciting - I know because mine just came off 2 days ago and I'm into the Crest White Strips now. They are actually working pretty well. I've only used 3 applications out of 14 and I can already see the difference. I do wish the strips were a bit longer so the teeth on the side of my mouth that show when I smile would also get white. The strip for the lower teeth is pretty small - only covers the front 6 teeth and a tiny bit of the first bicuspids, not sure why...

Good luck at your upcoming debanding! Hope the time til then passes quickly for you! :D

and I am very jealous
about Crest Whitestrips - I was told by a few dentists that these whitening products only make your teeth very sensitive?

Im not so sure how I feel about that.
