How to Whiten Teeth Naturally and Effectively
Step 1 - Whiten teeth naturally with baking soda. Many people use baking soda to whiten teeth, and most dentists agree that baking soda is an effective treatment. Some toothpastes also include baking soda as an ingredient. If you want to use baking soda alone, put it on a damp toothbrush. You can also mix baking soda with toothpaste for a better taste.
Step 2 - Use hydrogen peroxide to whiten teeth naturally, though you will feel some burning on your gums. Swish around hydrogen peroxide inside your mouth for a minute or so, then spit the hydrogen peroxide out. Rinse your mouth with water thoroughly. You can also wipe the hydrogen peroxide on your teeth with a cotton swab, but make sure you wipe the back of each tooth as well. You should see whiter teeth in a few weeks.
Step 3 - Eat strawberries to whiten teeth naturally! Strawberries contain teeth whitening agents. You can either rub the strawberries onto your teeth or mash the strawberries up and spread them onto your teeth with a toothbrush. Make sure you brush your teeth afterward, though, with fluoride toothpaste.
