Teeth Whitening

Hi. Can anyone please answer this?

I'm 15 turning 16 this year, and my family never takes me to a dentist.
When I was younger, no one ever told me to brush my teeth. And right now, they're yellow and my two front teeth have stains on them and I hate it.. And now my family say " Oh they're yellow! Why??? This is what they expect for never telling me anything..

I want to be able to talk to people or my friends without having to worry about what they will think of my teeth. It's very embarrassing, and I used to have people at my school teasing me about them.

I have brushed my teeth for some years now atleast once a day sometimes twice a day. I'm even too embarressed to talk to my mum about it so she can take me to the dentist. We are a family t hat doesn't have much money, and she will probably say no because it is too expensive.

So I'd like to know how much it would cost to get your teeth whitened?
Thanks. ;x

Get your teeth professionally cleaned first by a dental hygienist.  You probably have a significant amount of surface staining after all these years.  It's possible that the hygienist may be able to clean them and you may be satisfied with the shade from this alone.  If not, then they can recommend a whitening product.

Look in the yellow pages and call some dentists and see if they can direct you to some free dental care. Since you are still considered a child, they may be able to help you. I am sorry you are going through this.

I know I said to look in the yellow pages, which I don't know if you have, maybe a better idea would be to go online if you have access the internet. Maybe even a counselor at school could help you.

Thanks for your help and suggestions.
I am hopefully going to go to the Densist on Saturday and hopefully my mum takes me because this is really annoying!! :(

I don't think I could talk to a counselor, it's too embarrassing to tell a stranger..
I have Yellowpages, but what would I need to seach for on the internet?
