101 Home Remedies for Teeth Whitening

For the best tooth whitening at home, I use the crest professional at about $60. It is fast and works well. The tip I really want to share here though, when you whiten teeth, they tend to get very sensitive. After removing any whitening product, use sensodyne or any sensitivity toothpaste
with Potassium Nitrate =/> 5%. This takes away all tooth sensitivity.

After reading all of these remedies, I realized I didn't have hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, strawberries, or lemon juice, as I hadn't gone to the store in a couple days. However, I realized I had olive oil, Listerine, and of course, toothpaste. I mixed about 1/2 a tablespoon olive oil, with about 1 1/2 tablespoon Listerine, and some toothpaste. Then I put some toothpaste on my toothbrush, dipped it in the mixture, and brushed my teeth really well. Then I rinsed with the remaining mixture.
This worked really well. I intend to keep up with it, and do it constantly!

Hi everyone,

I recently tried LumaGloss teeth whitening and it is the best at home kit I have ever tried. I love the custom-fitted tray and the fact it has zero peroxide. I got amazing results after 10 days, I strongly recommend it!

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.

Okay, this morning I decided to experiment. I heard they use Baking Soda on the Statue of Liberty, so I put some Baking Soda on my toothpaste (while on the toothbrush, of course) and brushed my teeth. Wow! I could not believe it!!! They were white! Not quite pearly white, but they were white! But I did notice part of my gums were bleeding. Incase this happens to you, don't worry... It only jappened because the plaque was builing up in your gums. I also noticed that there was a texture difference in my teeth. They were smooth!

Always remember, what works for someone else may not work for you.
Here's my remedy and it does work.

Brush your teeth as usual and rinse your mouth and tooth brush with warm water.

Then dip your tooth brush in peroxide and brush your teeth. Do not swallow the peroxie. Rinse your mouth and tooth brush with warm water.

Then add some Crest 3D (atleast pea size)and take your finger to rub it in the tooth brush keeping some on top. Pour some peroxide over the tooth paste and brush again and rinse again with warm water.

I had my picture taken yesterday and my front teeth were so stained that they looked rotten in the picture. So I did this remedy this afternoon after seeing the picture, and so I took another picture and HUGE difference.

What DIDN't WORK for me;
peroxide and baking soda
peroxide alone
Olive oil

Baking Soda is your best bet. It may take up to a month to work, but it is safe to use. Most whitening toothpastes have baking soda anyway, and almost everyone has baking soda in their house. Just wet your toothbrush, dip the tip in baking soda, put some toothpaste on it and brush.

The olive oil trick works really well. I smoke and drink tea so much I drown in it. I have one tooth that is quite discolored and I was very surpired at the difference! I just put some on a washcloth and rub for a few minutes.
