    @Chasing Riley, In my opinion I don't think there is a such a thing as having too white teeth. If it is your own teeth the enamel will only lighten so far with over-the-counter whiteners. The object is to assess the current shade of your teeth, and lighten them two to three shades lighter. You will see a mark difference in your appearance and smile. When you reach the shade of "your desire"  and liking you stop.  I whiten my teeth on a per need basis. But I don't think anyone has ever said, OMG their teeth are too white. I personally would rather someone comment on my extreme white teeth versus walking around with my teeth looking like corn. I am a photographer and I have seen first hand how whitening the teeth can make a difference in someone's smile.

    I believe teeth are teeth...take care of them, brush them, floss them...but don't whiten them, it ruins the enamel and you might feel sorry about it later. Live with the smile you have, don't be a fake smile

    healthy teeth are supposed to have a bit of a yellow shade in them ... when you start loosing the yellow tint, is when you should stop.

    If you have to throw on some sunglasses when they smile I think that's sing over the line... wink

    I don't think they can ever be TOO white.

    As a dentist/ Aesthetic Dentistry specialist, I think white is never too white with these procedures as they start to integrate more through time and you just get use to it. Besides it doesn't stay that white! you'll see in time.
    I have to say though that people with tan and whitened teeth do have that fake white smile..

    When you it looks like you have eaten the sun. Crest White Strips usually allow me to get the balance right.
