You Will Need
Do not whiten teeth if you have cavities, open sores, gingivitis, or other gum disease.
Step 1: Make the pasteIn a small bowl, mix 2 teaspoons each of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. Stir until it is the consistency of regular toothpaste. You may need to add a bit more peroxide.
Add a drop or two of sugar-free mint flavoring.
Step 2: Brush your teethApply the whitener to a toothbrush and use as if it was regular toothpaste. Leave the whitener on your teeth for at least two minutes.
Step 3: RinseRinse thoroughly. Do not swallow the whitener solution.
Try rinsing with cranberry juice to get rid of the whitener's taste; it also kills bacteria.
Step 4: Put away the extra whitenerCover the bowl with the plastic wrap and set the extra whitener aside for another use.
Step 5: RepeatBrush with the peroxide paste no more than once a week. Hydrogen peroxide can cause tissue damage if used too often.
Tooth enamel is the hardest tissue in the human body.
