I recently watched a YouTube video on how to whiten teeth with something soooo obvious…PEROXIDE! There are so many toothpastes on the market with peroxide in them that it’s a no-brainer.Peroxide is normally used to sterilize wounds but it is good for teeth whitening because the chemicals in it kill teeth staining bacteria. Surprisingly it’s also good for preventing sore throats (because it kills bacteria).
Before I brush in the morning and evening I rinse with peroxide. I have been doing this for about two weeks and I already see a difference. I’ve used a few other “commercial” whitening systems but this is the easiest, quickest, and cheapest one and it’s just as effective. Peroxide is now part of my beauty regimen. The only con is if you have sensitive gums it might be too harsh so if you use it and it burns you should probably discontinue use.
Directions: Pour about 2 tablespoons of the antiseptic into your mouth, and swish it around for 1 minute. The solution will begin to foam; this is how you know it is working. The hydrogen peroxide combined with oral bacteria cause bubbles to form in your mouth. Spit it out and brush your teeth as normal.
You should avoid coffee, red wine, smoking, teas and anything else that may stain teeth to see the best results.
Have you tried this before? Would you? Let me know below.
