As time goes by your teeth become stained. This dulling can be caused by many factors such as genetics, coffee, soda, wine and tobacco use. To get back to having a bright white smile there are many products and services to choose from. Your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you so it’s no wonder so many people are turning to teething whitening products and services.
Teething whiting products and procedures can be costly. Budget conscious people have been using hydrogen peroxide to whiten their teeth at home naturally. Hydrogen peroxide is not only used for cuts and scrapes but it’s also the active ingredient in many teeth whitening products. Using hydrogen peroxide to whiten teeth has been acknowledged by the American Dental Association as a safe practice.
Simply visit your local drug store, pharmacy or grocery store and purchase a bottle of hydrogen peroxide. Typically it comes in a brown bottle usually found in the first aid section. Hydrogen peroxide is fairly inexpensive. Use the hydrogen peroxide as you would a mouthwash. Swish it around your mouth and you’ll be begin to feel it fizzle—you’ll know it’s working. Be sure not to swallow any of it and spit it out after about 1 minute of swishing. Rinse out your mouth with water until you sense that all the peroxide is gone.
Using hydrogen peroxide will take longer to whiten your teeth but if you have patience you can see results within time. You have to keep in mind that teeth whitening products have additional ingredients that make them more effective but that’s also the same reason that they are more expensive. For those on a budget, hydrogen peroxide is great for oral hygiene and will help whiten your teeth over time.
