If your teeth aren’t as white as they used to be, you may be wondering how to whiten your teeth. Luckily, there are plenty of methods! For DIY-ers, you can create your own whitening toothpaste by mixing one part hydrogen peroxide and two parts baking soda. If you’d like to buy a pre-made option, look for toothpaste at the supermarket that contains these ingredients. Whitening mouthwash can also help get any gaps you missed while brushing and allow the fluoride to soak into the enamel. Mouthwash with hydrogen peroxide used twice per day for three months can drastically whiten teeth. There are also many over-the-counter whitening strips and gels which are often coated in peroxide-based stain removal gel. Finally, dental offices offer in-house whitening treatments that are often the quickest and most effective methods.
