Cheaper Way To Whiten Teeth

Instead of going to an expensive dentist just to whiten your teeth due to surface stains, why not just check these facts?

Surface stains can be lessened by a whitening toothpaste using a mild abrasive and polishing agents. There may also be deeper discoloration of the enamel, which requires bleaching. Bleaching by a dentist uses a carbamide peroxide gel and can cost over $1,000. Save coin by rinsing with diluted hydrogen peroxide from a half-teaspoon of baking soda and a mashed strawberry. Leave on for five minutes, follow with a normal toothpaste, then rinse.
