Anyone had this done here in Moscow? Can you recommend a clinic to visit? And the price range of which your service cost? Thanks!

I was considering it (and now that I no longer smoke, I'll probably get it done during the Nov vacation). I think I was quoted 200USD by the American Russian Dental Center on Sadovaya Kudrinskaya - 797 97 59 Dr Giovanni Favero. Prices may have gone up since I asked for a quote.

And it's a really good way to get caries all over in a couple years.

Are you serious? The bleach used should be peroxide - does it weaken enamel? Do you know of anyone who had a bad experience and if so, where and what they had done? Polar bears need strong teeth to eat walruses - and insufferable tossers on this site :).

yeah i've heard it weakens enamel. but this is "they" talking, as in "they say it weakens enamel." i don't actually have any proof.

I asked my dentist a pretty straightforward question. I.e. "Is there a safe way to whiten one's teeth, a way without doing any damage to the enamel?" The answer was no, unfortunately. She is a great doctor. And the only reason I can afford her services is because my company covers it.

Save your money and your teeth and get someone from the states to send a box of White Strips from a local drug store. Dentist recommended and it really works -- I've used them.

The affects of my usage of the strips over a year ago still hold, and I had a few strips left over. So, for $20 US you can't go wrong.

Superb! Anybody's going to the US for White Strips for Sadiechka in the near future? :confused: :rolleyes:

Allice - thanks - I'll save my 200 dollars and my teeth - I did not give up my pipe to instead lose my teeth to phony cosmetic treatments.

Sadie - If I make it there for New Years (which I most definitely will unless there is a severe terrorist warning or pressing reason for me to be elsewhere), I will most certainly bring back a box of strips for you - we can both try them.

i can't help but suspect that the strips just rip the enamel right off your teeth.
say it isn't so!
