    What is the safest and easiet way to brighten one's smile, without having to go to the dentist?

    I sometimes use baking soda on top of my regular toothpaste and that seems to work well to remove coffee and tea stains from one's teeth?  Do you have a safe and easy way to brighten your smile that you would like to share as well?  Thank you for answersing.

    I also use baking soda, with a drop of hydrogen peroxide (just don't swallow it) and there are so many toothpasts out there with whitening (or so they say) and I have tried many of them and find the baking soda, with hydrogen peroxide is the best I've ever used.

      Hi Shyron, Thank you for answering. I never thought of hydrogen peroxide. I will give that a try. Blessings,  Faith Reaper

    I do oil pulling with coconut oil. When you do it daily it not only whitens your teeth, it also helps fight gum disease/plaque.  You can also make homemade toothpastes with it, baking soda and a few drops of mint essential oil as a whitening toothpaste.  Powdered sage is another good natural tooth whitener.

      Wow, ChristinS, what an interesting way to not only whiten one's teeth, but helps fight gum disease. I like the powdered sage idea too. Blessings,  Faith Reaper

    I was going to mention baking soda and peroxide, too. Guess I'm a little late!

      Hi Sha, thank you so much for answering.  I knew about the baking soda and had forgotten about peroxide.  Blessings

    Gargling with one part peroxide to three parts water in the mornings will brighten the teeth and help to kill bacteria.  Just make sure you rinse well afterwards.

      Hi teaches, wow, that is a great idea! Yes, one would need to rinse well after that for sure. I appreciate you taking the time to answer.
