anyone ever bleach their teeth?
you don't need to bleach your teeth, just get them cleaned by the dentist twice a year and brush them everday and they should look spottless. instead of bleaching them, just get toothpaste thats designed to whiten your teeth (like colegate optic white)
but you really don't need to have perfect dental higeine to get lady's, just keep from having bad breath and you'll be fine.
Good, clean, white teeth are very attractive. If they're yellow, you should definitely have them bleached.
A healthy, good smile is very important. If your asking, get em bleached, but have it done by a dentist to avoid damaging your enamel.
you should have brush your teeth twice a ady then there is no need of bleaching.
I've done it once through my dentist just to try it out. As others have stated, I'd recommend that over the kits you can buy. If you go thru with it, pick up a tube of sensodyne or other senstive teeth toothpaste -- you might need it.
If you going to do it it's best to get a home-kit from your dentist. That's when they'll make you a retainer to wear and give you a gel (10% Carbamide Peroxide) to wear overnight. If your teeth are sensitive you need to do it only for a few hours during the day. And don't waste your money on over-the-counter products or the "laser" in surgery systems. The latter could make your teeth really hurt. And make sure you have a good dentist and that the retainer made is cut straight not scalloped and is cut so that it sits over the gum and not before the gum.
When I was younger, even up into my late 20's, my teeth were kind of yellowish. I didn't smoke or drink coffee. They were just not white. My Mom is an office assistant for a Dentist, so she was always on us to brush our teeth which we did. My teeth were still yellow. This is way before the whole teeth whitening fad of the past 10 years. My Mom's boss was kind enough to laser my teeth, 2 shades lighter, I have since used the over the counter whitening tooth paste. It is not as big a deal to me anymore.
The point I want to make is that everyone is different. Some people can brush their teeth 4 times a day and still have yellow teeth. Some people can brush their teeth 4 times a week and still have white teeth. A friend of mine always has bad breath. I never asked him about it, but I am sure he has some condition, probably something in his stomach or something. No matter how often he brushes or gargles he has bad breathe. Just the way it is. Everyone is different.

to answer your title question there is no need to bleach your teeth, just get them cleaned at the dentists office once or twice a year and get some good whitening toothpaste.
as for bad breath, a common mistake many people make is that they brush their teeth, but they forget to brush the tongue. I might even recommend getting a tongue scraper (the tongue holds a lot more food residue than the teeth and thus causes bad breath more often)
btw, I think the best toothpaste available is "colegate optic white" it whitened my teeth several shades after only 10 days of brushing (a noticeable difference in my smile)
While we are on the subject of bad breath, I would recommend flossing. I think flossing gets rid of most of your bad breath, in my experience. Seriously, try it after you brush your teeth. It will smell gross if you haven't done it in a while. It's cheap too, I only spent a $1 at a dollar store for a pack, which has lasted me months.
I brush 2-3 times a day and floss about every other day at least. I'm with everyone on the whitening toothpaste, it works. I also used a small bottle of mouthwash I got in a higher end hotel, which was the most refreshing mouthwash I've ever used. It didn't burn, but it made my mouth feel fresher than any mouthwash I've ever used. Wish I could remember the brand...
