I want to whiten my teeth. Can I use white-strips or would you recommend going to the dentist?

It is always best to first check with your dentist before starting any form of teeth- whitening. Only the dentist can tell you if your teeth are good candidates for whitening, and if you need some other treatments (cleaning, fillings) before getting your teeth whitened. Otherwise, you are just wasting your money and time.
