I am giving this advice as my mother has been a dentist/ dental lab technition for 24 years. I have used professional whitening trays (made especially for my teeth) with 30% volume bleach. I loved how this made my teeth look but over using it cause severe tooth sensitivity and nerve damage. My teeth were so white they looked see through. This cosmetic procedure can be very costly and harming if you do not know what you are doing. Also, I do not recommend using 'home bleaching' products such as pre whitening rinse, whitening toothpaste and gels and strips. Although these are okay, they are not meant to be used together nor are they meant to be used everyday. You will notice extreme sensitivity and not get the results you want. Remember if you have vaniers of any kind, they will not bleach or become whiter, all it will do is make the stains disappear, it will not actually whiten the tooth below the surface. Also, hydrogen poroxide is not safe at all. It can cause major damage to your mouth and gums and can be fatal if swallowed.
Here is what I do :

Step One:
Floss- you need to removed all plaque and build-up from around the tooth and gum

Step Two: Brush your teeth daily as you would normally do. I brush after every meal.

Step Three: Rinse your mouth with luke warm water. cold water or hot water can be harming to your nerves and your gums and will be shocking.

Step 4: Make a paste with water, toothpaste and baking soda. And brush your teeth again gently. Brushing harder will not make your teeth whiter, it will and can eat the enamel off your teeth.

Step Five: Rinse your mouth again with luke warm water.

Step Six: Rinse with a antiseptic mouth wash. I do recommend Listerine every day but not when you do this at home remedy. I would uses a non alcohol based mouth washed on the days you uses this remedy.

REMEMBER: this is not a permanent solution, this is only temporary. Do not do this daily. If you have really bad, and I mean really bad stains or yellow teeth i recommend twice a week for 2 weeks and then once a week there after to remove weekly surface stains.

Please remember that we are not striving for just white teeth we are striving for healthy white teeth.

NOTE: These things contribute to yellow, and stained teeth regularly: SMOKING, COFFEE, TEA, DARK SODAS, AND ALACHOLIC BEVERAGES. ALL THESE ARE NO NO'S FOR YOUR TEETH.

Good advice.. I brush twice a day morning and night but have a poor diet so no matter what I have to go to the dentist for whitening. I started doing the baking soda step after toothbrushing in the AM and PM only on Tuesdays and I have a brighter mouth for it after 2 weeks. Not pearly white like high gloss white wall paint but i would say at least 3 shades whiter. Thank you!

I heard on that show Doctors that baking soda can actually cause cavities. Everything else you mentioned should be obvious.

Thank you all very much. I am so glad you are enjoying your new smiles. Over time your teeth will become whiter and stay whiter longer. I hope you all have a wonderful blessed day. Happy Bright White Smiley Day:)

Baking Soda can not cause cavities. Baking soda can cause some enamel erosion if you are using too much or using too often. Cavities are caused by tarter and plaque build up on the teeth. Which are actually microscopic bugs that eat away at the enamel on your teeth which then causes sensitivity and can lead to cavities. Baking soda can cause weakening of the enamel but not enough to harm you, but like I said you have to be using it like every day 5 times a day and using an entire box every time u use it. Other than that you should be fine. Thanks for reading :)

One thing you all forgot. DO NOT use fluoride toothpaste. Fluoride is a poison. If you fill a shot glass up with only 1/10th of an ounce and drank it, you will DIE. Fluoride has never been approved by the FDA for cavity prevention. However it has been approved as a rodent poison!!! Just read the warning on the back of any fluoride toothpaste container. If you swallow more then a pea size call poison control!

Thank you!! My roommate and I are going to go buy baking soda right now! :D And to the person that felt so obligated to inform her about some misspelled words, I hope you enjoy your new pearly whites and think of her everytime you smile! :)
