The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Teeth whitening?

    My front right tooth is stained. I have no idea why; I don't smoke, I don't drink coffee.. nothing really that would stain it. But it looks disgusting, especially in pictures. Is there anything OTC I can get for whitening it back up?

    any of those white strips packs you can get at CVS or walgreens will work, just be persistent with it. youll notice the color change within a couple of days. used them multiple times myself.

    I would go see a dentist. I recently had dental work done, and noticed that I had a tooth with half a different shade. It looked weird, and I also don't do anything to discolor mine. She told me try Crest Whitestrips, but it may take a dentist to change it.

    Yes that's exactly the problem I'm having. Half of the tooth is like this yellow/brown color and the other half is a nice white. No idea why.

    Has it been stained forever or it happened gradually/instantly?

    Sort of recently/instantly I guess. Maybe it was before and I just never really noticed.

    Be careful with the white strips. I've heard of freak incidents (but not THAT uncommon) where people use them and it actually stains their teeth hardcore.

    I will also warn anyone getting their teeth whitened that there is a small albeit significant chance that it will hurt like hell. I used white strips and for some reason the nerves in my teeth freak out when I do it. Same thing went for laser whitening. To this day laser-whitening is the most painful experience I have gone through.

    My wife used this stuff that you brush on your teeth and then get in the tanning bed. It comes with a mouthpiece that holds your lips back. The first time she used it, there was a significant difference. I guess it is the same concept as dentist using UV lights to whiten the teeth.
