5 Home Remedies to Whiten Teeth

I love that the wonderful world of Pinterest has opened our eyes to a million home remedies and recipes for everything you can imagine. I know I am always looking for whiter teeth, so naturally I took to Pinterest to figure out what my options are.

1. Swish Hydrogen Peroxide

I used to do this back in college and my roommates thought I was completely nuts! Well, my teeth were definitely whiter as a result and that was awesome. But at the time I didn’t know all the details, swish as you would mouth wash 2 times a day for 7-10 days. Don’t exceed that 7-10 days! My gums started turning white and got pretty tender. If you notice it causing pain, stop!

2. DIY Teeth Whitening 



This method of home whitening uses a combination of mouthwash, baking soda, peroxide and tooth  paste.

3. Homemade Whitening Mouth Wash

Gather supplies.

This mouthwash calls for a combination of water, baking soda and peroxide.

4. Orange Peels


Did you know you could use the inner, white part of an orange peel to whiten your teeth? All you have to do is rub it on your teeth, don’t expect immediate results, but in time it should start to whiten.

5. Straberry+Baking Soda


This (seemingly odd) method calls for 1 ripe, mashed strawberry and 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. Let it sit on your teeth for 5 minutes, the brush them with regular toothpaste.

    Great stuff. Another thing that I have been trying lately is oil pulling. Basically you swish oil around your in your mouth for about 20 minutes and the idea is that the oil will break down the plaque in your mouth. Have you tried this?

  2. Rose

    Mayonnaise works as a treatment for hair. Moisten hair with water. Rub it in and let it set overnight covered with a plastic bag or cover.Shampoo the following morning.

  3. gotoothache

    There are many natural teeth whitening home remedies out there. Many of them can help you achieve a whiter smile. However, many of these natural remedies are also abrasive or acidic, and without proper usage, will damage your teeth and cause cavities. Baking Soda: Baking soda is well known for its ability as a cleaning agent to get rid of stains in the home, but it can also work equally great on your teeth as well.
