Homemade Teeth Whitening Recipe - Before and After Baking Soda
As good as the tooth whitening toothpaste available at your local supermarket are, simply brushing your teeth won't get you very good results, at least not in the near term. If you want to get white teeth but don't want to pay too much by visiting your dentist or cosmetic surgeon then theere are a few option. There are commercially available products, also somewhat expensive and then there is the homemade teeth whitening solution.
Whitening your teeth at home with inexpensive and readily available products is easier than you may think. Many people are starting to think about adding teeth whitening into their personal appearance, and lets face it, white teeth look much better than yellowing teeth.
The yellowing of your teeth may be caused by many things, coffee, tea, smoking, poor oral hygeine, gum disease, or even just not bothering to see your dentist at regular intervals. What ever the reason the following homemade tooth whitening recipe is not only very effective but it is also the cheapest and easier soulution i have found so far.
To make your homemade toothpaste take 3 teaspoons of baking soda, 3 to 5 drops of 3% hydrogen peroxide and mix into the baking soda or baking powder. Mix the two ingredients together until a smooth consistent paste is formed, add a little water if the mix is too gluggy. Apply to your teeth with either a toothbrush or if your prefer a cotton bud. Its very important to make sure that the soultion is well mixed and that it is applied evenly to all teeth. Uneven applications or for unequal times will produce varying results, i.e. your teeth will not come out all the same shade of white.
Leave the solution on your teeth for 5 minutes, rinse with water, brush your teeth with normal toothpaste and then rinse again with mouth wash. If you are not getting the results that you expected you should persist with this method but try for 10 minutes instead of 5 minutes for each application. For best results this homemade teeth whitening procedure should be performed at least once per every week. Once the desired level of whiteness is achieved back off the procedure to every 2 to 4 weeks to maintain the look of those pearly white teeth.
A word of warning, try to resist the temptation of whitening every day. This may be hard when you first start to see results but you should remember that hydrogen peroxide is a dangerous chemical. In small doses it is fine but repeated use and overexpose or ingestion is not healthy. You should also not use the homemade teeth whitening recipe if you have ulcers, sore gums or bleeding gums. And of course if you experience adverse reactions stop and find another way to whiten your teeth. Enjoy your new whitened teeth and happy smiling.
