NO. It is recommened to consult with your dentist for teeth whitening. There are many variations such as in-office whiteing with zoom lights or pure chemicals, in-home whiteing with trays or strips or the combination.

I heard that rubbing a banana peel on my teeth for 2 minutes will whiten them is that true?

Not really. If that were true, there would be no need for all of the whitening products on the drugstore shelves or the professional products available from your dentist.
