White teeth look good on everyone, but going to the dentist and getting them professionally whitened can be expensive. You could choose to whiten them yourselves, but you also want to be conscious of what chemicals you're putting in your mouth. Lucky for you, you can whiten your teeth safely, effectively, and naturally with this budget-friendly DIY teeth whitening process that uses two ingredients you probably already have!
2 teaspoons of Baking Soda
2-3.5% Hydrogen Peroxide
Put 2 teaspoons of Baking Soda in a small dish. Continue to add small amounts of Hydrogen Peroxide to the dish until it becomes a thick paste. Put the paste on your toothbrush, and brush for two minutes. Rinse. Do this up to three times a week and enjoy your nice white teeth!
Other tips for keeping your teeth white:
- Drink coffee and tea through a straw
- Brush and floss after eating and drinking
- Follow good oral hygiene by brushing once when you wake up and once before going to bed, and flossing at least once a day
- See your dentist regularly (it is usually recommended to see them for a cleaning twice a year)
