My teeth have a headache. I was fine until I had popcorn for a snack. I guess there was too much chewing involved. I had the Zoom! whitening treatment done. It was kind of uncomfortable but not painful. A device was put in my mouth to keep my lips away from my teeth. Lots of gauze too. I was quite a sight. My gums were painted with a material that hardened to protect them from the whitener. Then a bleaching gel was painted on my teeth and cured with a special light for 20 minutes. The gel was wiped off, reapplied, and cured again, two more times. I brought my daughter's iPod; it was a lifesaver. I even like her taste in music. My teeth look to be at least a few shades whiter. It was worth the time and any discomfort I'm having. I have to eat 'white' food and stay away from coffee and tea for 24 hours. That won't be hard. I had a salad with chicken for lunch and I'll have chicken and rice and maybe a banana for dinner.

It snowed really hard here for about a half hour. That was pretty, but a tease. I'd like it to snow again, but not when I have to work the next day. I've spent a lazy afternoon reading and watching TV. Tonight's my TV night---Ugly Betty and Gray's Anatomy, my favorites. Yeah! Later!

Glad the whitening process went okay. I am currently addicted to ER from 10 AM to 12 AM on TNT. It is a morning ritual for me.

Cheryl,

The flowers blooming here are so abnormal for this time of the year. It has been so warm, almost spring-like, but that is about to change. Thank you for your comments yesterday. They made my day. Hope you have a good day at work when you get up and going this morning.

Was Grey's good? I haven't watched it yet. I plan to download it this afternoon.

Sounds like a lot of effort Cheryl. Is this supposed to work better than those white-strips?

You know in some cultures "blackened teeth" are the "in" thing to do. Others use a rock and knife to create "pointy" teeth, which is considered sexy. It's all a matter of perspective and what society your born into. Hope your teeth feel better.
