Brush and floss: There are no really effective ways to make your teeth whiter on your own. Start with a professional cleaning at your dentist; brush and floss properly after meals; discuss safe and effective treatment options regarding tooth whitening.

Baking soda: Brushing thoroughly is the first step to white teeth. A "natural" tooth whitener is baking soda. Wet your toothbrush and dip it into the baking soda, then brush normally.

An old remedy is to make a light paste with Hydrogen Peroxide and Baking Soda. Use this paste on the teeth and gums.

How might you make your teeth whiter naturally?

Whiter teeth: Teeth darken naturally as we get older. Making sure your teeth are free of stain from coffee, tea and smoking, will help your teeth look brighter. If your teeth are crooked or over-lapped, orthdontic treatment will help them look brighter. Toothpaste will help clean teeth, but will not whiten them. The best way to whiten your teeth is through your dentist office.

Whitening Teeth: Teeth whitening is very popular . But there are risks. Tooth damage, cold sensitivity forever and rampant gum line caries(decay) are some. You can achieve that beautiful smile you want. Go slow. In house bleaching at the dds office is fast and easy. May lead to very very to cold painful teeth. Strips otc , easy but have had poor results. A dds bleach tray made for you is best. Takes 30 days. I did.
