I'm in Bangkok on a short work trip, and I'm potentially interested in getting my teeth whitened while I'm here. The dental clinic I've gone to before (and been very happy with) offers Zoom!2 and Plasma Cool-Light procedures. Does anyone have knowledge, or first-hand experience with either of these? What would you recommend? Zoom!2 seems faster and less likely to cause tooth sensitivity, and I'm inclined to go with that--but should I even get my teeth whitened in the first place? [more inside]
I'm having trouble finding teeth whitening strips that don't have a mint flavor. Some advertise that they have a mint flavor and others just don't say. (For health reasons, I must avoid mint.) Any ideas?

I'd like some more info on this new Colgate Weekly Clean toothpaste, but I'm loathe to ask the manufacturer, because they'll obviously be biased. So, is it as good as they make out? [more inside]

My wife and I just purchased two boxes of Crest Whitestrips Classics. I want to know before we get too far into the two week process, if there's any potentially negative "side effects" to using teeth whitening strips. The box label says our teeth will be nice and white for 12 months! These strips aren't cheap either! Not to mention, I just discovered there are different strengths of the Whitestrips e.g."Premium, Professional, & Supreme!" Would a professional whitening treatment at our dentist's office be better as far as cost/safety,etc?
Will a glycolic resurfacing peel make a tan go away faster, or are there proven methods to reduce an accidental tan? How long does a one time tan last?
ToothWhiteningFilter: I received a box of Crest Whitestrips Supreme over the holidays - which would have been a pretty cruel gift, actually, but it was more of a take-one-from-a-grab-bag thing - and can't figure out how to use them. [More inside...] [more inside]
