How to Whiten Teeth Naturally

Having less-than-brilliant teeth doesn't have to mean a trip to the dentist or a whitening kit. Try this all-natural remedy instead.

You will need

  • Baking soda
  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Bowl
  • Toothbrush
  • Plastic wrap
  • Mint flavoring
  • Cranberry juice

Step 1 Make the paste In a small bowl, mix 2 teaspoons each of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. Stir until it is the consistency of regular toothpaste. You may need to add a bit more peroxide.

Step 2 Brush your teeth Apply the whitener to a toothbrush and use as if it was regular toothpaste. Leave the whitener on your teeth for at least two minutes.

Step 3 Rinse Rinse thoroughly. Do not swallow the whitener solution.

Step 4 Put away the extra whitener Cover the bowl with the plastic wrap and set the extra whitener aside for another use.

Step 5 Repeat Brush with the peroxide paste no more than once a week. Hydrogen peroxide can cause tissue damage if used too often.
