Two things I want to get done before the end of 2013.

Anyone here done these yet?

Shave your head and use diluted hydrogen peroxide mouthwash for a few weeks; tastes a bit yuk but it works, costs next to nothing and is a lot less metrosexual.

I use 16% polanight gels. Works quite well.

To keep them white you have to keep doing it, one night a month maybe, white is not a natural colour for teeth.

Sounds interesting. Where do you buy the kit/gel from?

Ask MF. He is in the states often so is bound to have had them both done.

I got the impressions made at my dentist, they send them away to get the gum shields made up, that cost me 200 knicker with the first set of gels. I think you can make the impression yourself for cheaper but I could not be arsed.

The gels can be got online, you start on 10% and if your teeth don't get sensitive then you can increase. People have got badly burned using the wrong ones, some are made for 30 minutes and people put them in over night. ooch.

You can go crazy with them and get really white teeth but people do start staring at them, I just keep them normal white.

I'd be interested in the teeth thing but mine have that thing where they go a bit translucent I forget the proper term) so I'm a bit worried a)it won't work b)it might damage my teeth :(

Has anyone had veneers and/or had their teeth adjusted with adult braces, etc?

Thanks, I've just ordered a pack of 8 and the trays for £33 from their website. About time I sorted my yellow teeth out!

I see people around me and think "how white your teeth all are" but I think it's only in comparison to my own... they suddenly went crap in my early-mid 20s when they'd always been pretty white before that.

They aren't that bad but have been getting steadily worse over the past 15 years since my early 20s. My wife told me to sort them out the other day, and she rarely has anything bad to say about me (probably because she isn't really that interested any more....).

Anyway, for £30-odd I guess it's worth a shot, and it's no stress, doing it at home.

Now the hair transplant is a completely different story.... :eyes

Don't know how the trays will hold up at that level, mine are moulded to fit my teeth, worth a shot for 33 quid though.

I posted about the Hair transplant a couple of years ago, and certainly those who may have had it done weren't forthcoming in telling me!

Think you can get it done by a reputable one for around the £5K mark - it's something I want to do as well, so let's get a CUK multi-buy deal going :tired

The best place in the UK (according to the research I've done) is up in Manchester, which is a bit of a pain for me.

The worst part of the procedure is that you need to shave your head and then take off a couple of months so that you don't look stupid going back into the office. (or wear a hat which we clearly couldn't do at work...)

I know someone who got a quote from the place that done Rooney's transplant, it was something bonkers like 20 or 40 grand, could have been in Manchester.

So he is a consultant in a hospital, Dr with a Phd and as gay as a Mexican tablecloth, he starts asking them about what you need to do to get a job in the place.
