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.

Thanks. My husband and I made a commitment to quit smoking so this was a nice 'starter reward' and good incentive to keep them nice. He'll be stoked in the morning. Worked like a charm. <3

Peroxide is only harmful if swallowed. It can actually be used as an oral antiseptic . Also the most a small amount will do is make u vomit. This is how u make a dog vomit if it has eaten something deadly( u mix equal parts water and peroxide). I don't mean to offend, but why are u all taking advice from someone who's MOTHER was a dental assistant/hygienist? I am an RN if your wondering.

Rob, I'm terribly sorry to have to say but, your very wrong involving your statements about fluoride. Fluoride has been placed into our natural running water supply and was mandated by our nation to be placed into our waters several years ago due to the economic downfalls & disadvantages according to the many societies, cavities needed to be prevented not only for our society but our societies children. Hence the reason that drinking tap H2O is a lot more healthier for you then filtered being filtered-store bought waters have the least amount of flourish in them, they really search us all the disadvantage to another step towards healthy heigental care. Yes, 'swallowing' your tooth paste and yes, even your mouth wash (that contains fluoride) might possibly send you to the ER after consuming a wee bit too much, worse they'll do is pump your tummy :) so to out do further damage that was already publisuzed due to your false advise, hopefully readers here on out now understand the 'actual' facts about fluoride.

Just to confirm, there isn't any negative reaction or anything between Baking Soda and mouthwash? I'm using Listerine Zero.
