whiter teeth..brighter smile :)

Made an appointment with the dentist to do the Rembrandt One-Hour Smile Whitening Program tomorrow. Had been hoping that Singapore would have something like this for ages ever since reading about it in the US magazines. I think most of the celebs in States and Singapore have their teeth whitened this way too.

My teeth is discolored due to some medication I'd taken when I was a kid. I'd ever considered getting those diy whitening products from the dentist but the thought of having to put the tray on every night for a long period of time deterred me. Ya..lazy person that I am :P..

Anyway, read about this treatment in the May issue of Female magazine which has a new column where they will put to the test the 'latest fandangled products in the market' and write about their experience and views about it. The writer's ratings for it was excellent (4 stars). What attracted me most to this treatment is the speed. It takes only 1 hour to bleach and individually whiten the teeth and it's supposedly clinically proven to whiten teeth by an average of 10 shades though the results may vary.

Anyway, will know the results tomorrow. Apparently, the dentist will first check your teeth to ascertain whether it's suitable for this treatment (eg. not suitable for those with really sensitive gums) and then she'll proceed with the treatment if it's fine. I hope to be smiling more then :)

Oh..I realise I must sound like someone with low self-esteem. So far, I've complained about my weight, my flabby tummy,my blotchy complexion and now my teeth. So vain & superficial eh :P..

Oh yes, any idea if this product is in Singapore yet. Saw the QE guys using it for a makebetter for one of the straight guys and meganmacy said that it's was introduced to the HK market recently with Karen Mok as the spokesperson.

If u realise, most of Aidan's pics are either
a) the blur look or as cowie describes, the deer in headlight look or b) the mega TL/KL look.

I don't even think I have any pics of him smiling sweetly.
Most of the time, it's those open mouth guffaws/grins like this..

Oh..the latest toy Aidan is enamoured with is this little washing machine I got from the Robinson Sale at 9 bucks. It operates on battery and can actually wash small li' items. Got it for him coz he loves watching our front loader washing machine and always likes to play with the door and the li' shelves. And that's what he's been doing with this li' machine too..Fidgetting with the li' gadgets, opening and slamming shut the door, making it spin manually..and of coz using it as a stool too to reach for stuff on the dining table :P


Oh..the li' bugger was in a good mood today. No more tantrums..and no runny nose either. Maybe I was wrong. He could have been in a foul mood before 'coz of his illness. Anyway, he was soooo active today *chuan*. Kept on wanting to play catch and asking me to piggyback him around the apartment..Thank gawd he's napping now so I can have some rest *pant*..

I think Aidan already looks very good without showing teeth :)

Am pretty sure white strips not on market yet...

Will you look like Morgan Fairchild the next time we meet? Y_Y
May. 5th, 2004 05:10 am (UTC)
eh i have no idea what product morgan fairchild is endorsing..some teeth whitener too? hehe i dun watch sellovision leh.

Aiyah..prob wun be that white anyway..teeth yellowed by medication can only achieve abt 7 shades whiter according to the dentist :P

Good luck with your teeth whitening! I'd like to get the crest strips too!

Aidan's still so babyish, not stable yet when he walks and you worry about him talking? aiyoh, one thing at a time... heh :)
May. 5th, 2004 05:46 am (UTC)
heh he actually walks very steadily..just that he's been running up n down that corridor for quite a while before I started filming it and i think he tripped coz he was over excited hehe. Usually, he's fine.

Hmm..am thinkin of askin someone to send it over to me from HK. lemme know if u want some too :) but oh well, let's see how effective the whitening treatment is first!

His short hair looks so handsome on him,suits him well :D!! no he seldom smiles in pics but when he does its so sweet!!! but he looks cute no matter what the facial expression :P

I love the first video and hearing his hearty lil laugh,its so precious.

HEhe and the dadadada to the washing machine was funny too!!! lol!!
May. 5th, 2004 07:51 am (UTC)
heh u guys always give so much praises to Aidan :P.. think u r probably biased heh

I love his laughter too. Helps to lift my spirits up usually. And heh..that's the way he usually is..dadadadadada most of the time. And i know he's tryin to tell me somethin..just that i dun understand :P
May. 5th, 2004 07:08 am (UTC)
First, we had dayne doing the vacumming and now we have Aidan doing the laundry. You moms are sure doing a great job in training your boys with the housework. :) Good for C. hahahah

That whitening thing is available in HK. You want? My cousin is here and goes back on Sat. I can get and tompang her to bring back for ya!
May. 5th, 2004 07:47 am (UTC)
heh yeah lor. Must train them well so won't be so siong later on. Good for their future wives too!

Any idea how much is a box in HKD? I know of some pple who liked to have it.

i saw an ad for Rembrandt last year when i was at my dentist and i didn't pay much attention to it until i saw them mention it in queer eye and i went "HEY! now i wanna try it"

but wah. 900 is really expensive. *decides to try cheaper alternatives*
May. 5th, 2004 07:34 am (UTC)
I think the ad for rembrandt is more for their home whitening products..they only brought over this treatment recently and that's why they r starting with the promo price.
The one we saw on QE is the crest whitestrip actually. If u saw the rembrandt on tv, it was probably in extreme makeover instead. I don't think the strip that expensive. I may want to bring some over from HK. U want me to get for u?

Aidan looking more like you each day. last picture he is in such deep concentration.
May. 5th, 2004 07:46 am (UTC)
eh..u referring to which pic ah?
I seldom in deep concentration leh hehe..

May. 5th, 2004 07:29 am (UTC)
is it the blue light thingy?

i heard it costs 7 - 8k (hkd) here. very expensive...

well but if i have the money i will have one ;)
May. 5th, 2004 07:44 am (UTC)
yeah it's the sapphire (blue) light treatment. I think it's prob more ex in HK coz it's been introduced there much earlier on. Most of the TVB stars n hk celebs had their teeth whitened tru that i heard.

The promo price in Singapore is about HKD4k which is almost 50 percent cheaper eh. But i doubt the price will stay that way. That's why im taking advantage of it now :)
May. 5th, 2004 07:32 am (UTC)
i think if the crest strip is available in sg, it will definitely be available in your guardian and watson's? becos in hk it's always found in these 2 stores (ie. our mannings/watsons), but in supermarket, it's not seen in everyone of it.

heh. by the way, i think i will try later this month :p
May. 5th, 2004 07:45 am (UTC)
it's not available yet as far as i know..

I wonder whether it's really effective. U should try it since u'd mentioned before u don't like ur teeth color too. Any idea how much is a box?

He really reminds me alot of Macy. Macy doesn't talk to the washing machine. She talks to the door... I will download it and you help me upload... damn funny too...

Their laughter is just so precious, isn't it? Thank god for modern technology that helps us capture it all down.
May. 5th, 2004 08:19 am (UTC)
heh quick quick..go upload the video! Macy talking to the door must b really hilarious. Why do they think inanimate objects will listen to them ah hehe

Yeah lor. I have all the videos of him laughing since he was a wee one. Always play them back whenever im feeling down coz it helps cheer me up :)
May. 5th, 2004 09:43 am (UTC)
oohh, ooohh, ooohhhh!!! if you want that Crest Whitestrips, i have a box sitting at home, brand-new and unopened! i cannot use it lah, because you know i have braces. i bought it before, and thought that i could do a "14-day" pre-braces teeth-whitening campaign, but i was too busy eating all the food i could sink my teeth into instead :P

shall i send it to you this week? you should receive it by next! :)
May. 5th, 2004 10:13 am (UTC)
heh u don't even wanna try it out?

Heh..it's okay. Gonna be expensive to send it from New York I'm sure...i think the box isn't light and small. And also, after tomorrow's treatment, i may not need it hehe..

I was just wondering abt it. I may go HK sometime soon so maybe i'll jus get it from there directly :)

Thanks again! Maybe u can consider tryin it out when ur braces r off. When is that gonna be anyway?
