    My grandmother always told me to brush with baking soda once a month to keep teeth white.

    You might think this is a bit weird.  But 'oil pulling' will whiten your teeth quite naturally, plus there are a load of other benefits from doing it.  I've been doing it for about a week now and my teeth are noticeably whiter.

    The best/natural way to make teeth white is not to stain them in the first place.  Drinks such as dark soda, coffee, and red wine all contribute over time to staining teeth yellow.  Additionally, smoking, is probably the worst thing you can do to your teeth.

    Any dentist will tell you that "natural and safe" home remedies are mostly ineffective in removing actual yellowing that has built up on teeth over time.  (Most will tell you that over the counter whiteners are also ineffective.)  However, you can prolong the effects of professional whitening treatments by avoiding further staining afterward.

    Natural baking soda can be used more often, the problem is that it can remove enamel. Peroxide combined with it, gives it a boost of whitening power. Dip toothe brush in peroxide, then in baking soda, brush as usual. Do not swallow, and rinse.
