Get a bottle of:
Hydrogen Peroxide 3% (H2O2)- Use fresh product
Box of Baking Soda (any brand is fine)
Wet toothbrush with Hydrogen Peroxide then dip in the baking soda, a paste will form on the brush…brush as shown, focusing on the gum line using a gentle, massaging circular motion. Brush all tooth surfaces, and tongue. . For oral use, you can dilute the 3% hydrogen peroxide with up to 10 parts water.
Adjust dilution to your taste
Rinse the mouth well when you are done
Baking soda has the effect of increasing alkalinity in the mouth, thereby neutralizing acids produced by the bacteria responsible for plaque and tooth decay. Baking soda is also a mild abrasive and whitens teeth.
Hydrogen peroxide is alkaline and bubbles and foams as it destroys the bacteria. It also cleans the tongue
Alternate this formula with your regular toothpaste.
Not for use by those with High Blood pressure or salt-restricted diet.

You can try with OTC hydrogen peroxide. It's well known to cause whiteness, however, it only works while it's in contact with your teeth. This is why the tooth whiteners are peroxide with other ingredients to thicken them so they stay on your teeth. There is well published research that shows that peroxide can increase the risk of oral cancers when used in conjunction with other cancer causing agents. Stick with products meant for tooth bleaching. The Target brand isn't too expensive and it keeps the bleach off of the sensitive tissues.

Stay away from the professional teeth whitening procedures and from the whitening at home kits. They are using extremely toxic chemicals that can cause IRREVERSIBLE DAMAGE TO TOOTH ENAMEL and premature tooth decay.

All you have to do is put like a half a spoon of baking soda and a little peroxide in your mouth and brush. Make sure u put about the same in you mouth or u wnt get the right turn out. dnt put so much that you have to keep from swallowing or spiting it out, jus enuf where u can swish it and then rinse and use toothpaste. Try to do it as often as possible but not everyday. You will have pearly whites in no time.
My ma does this all the time and dentists tell her its a waste to come in since her teeth are so white and they dnt believe she smokes.
