Make Homemade Teeth Whitener

Everybody wants to have nice, beautiful, pearly white teeth. Unfortunately, both in office and over the counter teeth whitening products can cost an arm and a leg, meaning that people will be looking at your missing limbs rather than your gorgeous choppers. But you can cut out the middleman (as well as a lot of overhead costs) by making your own home made teeth whitener. These guidelines will show you how to do just that.

Hydrogen Peroxide

Many of the most effective whitening products contain hydrogen peroxide. The in office dentist whitening agents vary from ten to forty percent peroxide, which makes you wonder why they cost so much when you can get a whole bottle of the stuff for a couple bucks. At any rate, this is the easiest and most foolproof way of whitening your teeth: Simply gargle and swish with a capful of peroxide after brushing your teeth each night. You’ll experience some foaming but it will be nothing more extreme than when you put hydrogen peroxide on a cut. Make sure to rinse with water after you’re done, though, and never go to sleep with peroxide on your teeth.

Baking Soda and Salt

Another easy and cheap whitening method involves mixing salt with baking soda. You’ll want to use three parts of baking soda to each part of table salt and then stir this combination and put it on your toothbrush. Baking soda has been shown to whiten teeth while salt is abrasive enough to get the whitening effects to really shine. You should be warned, however, that using baking soda too often on your teeth can lead to enamel degradation; in other words, your enamel might get worn off if you use this method too frequently.

Bay Leaves and Orange Peels

This method is a bit more homeopathic than the other two listed above and it is arguably the safest option for homemade whitening. Bay leaves, which can be found in the herb section of any grocer, are large, dried leaves that pack plenty of flavor. But they also pack plenty of safe abrasion, which is key for any whitening method. You’ll want to put a dried orange peel up against a dried bay leaf and then rub both sides on all of your teeth. Make sure that the orange peel is dried enough to keep you safe from the acid of the fruit and make sure that the bay leaf is of the powdered variety. Though this process may not pack the punch of hydrogen peroxide, it is definitely a safer alternative.
