Whiten Your Teeth for Cheap!!
So you may have noticed I have been Mia for a few days…. That’s because one of my closest friends got married to an awesome man on Friday! So Thursday was full of work and wedding stuff, Friday all day was getting ready for the wedding and of course dancing all day, and yesterday I worked for 10 hours. So it’s been nuts around here!
Anywho, lately people have been commenting a ton on how white my teeth are so I thought I would share how I got them so white! It’s really simple (I found it on interest) and it is the main active ingredient in expensive teeth whiteners! Hydrogen peroxide! Yep, just swish around your mouth twice a day for about a minute or two and spit it out. I like to rinse after with water! Until you get the desired color. Its safe to use. I did start getting sores in my mouth from it so I cut back to once a day and it went away! Its actually meant to help with sores but I am sensitive to everything so yea! But it seriously works after only a week or so I started seeing results!

I have a friend who did this with great results, she has Hollywood like white teeth. I started and just fell out of practice.
I’m going to start doing this!!! 🙂 Thanks SO much!
My Dentist recommended this for a problem tooth that I had to clear up an infection, so I feel that it is safe. His advice was to buy Hydrogen peroxide in small bottle because the use life is not long. Thanks for the tip, I will try it for whitening.

Hmm interesting good tip!!! My mother in law works for a dentist too and said it was safe! Happy whitening!
You can also take some baking soda, smear it on your teeth and then rub a slice of lemon (or lime) across your teeth. It will bubble and fizz (which is part of the fun)! The taste takes a while to get used to though. 😉
Baking soda works too but be careful it can scratch the enamel off your teeth. I’ve heard people that use baking soda a lot can have problems with their teeth later in life! Thats what my mother in law told me she’s a dental hygienist. Just beware! Thanks for the tip though
I’ve done it, too, but be careful because some people feel it may harm the enamel or something. I use baking soda, but don’t scrub. Just lay it on with the brush, hold it in my mouth for 15 minutes and then spit it out. It works.
Yea I would only recommend doing it for a couple weeks then only doing it when you need to freshen up your teeth a bit! You have some patients girl! I don’t know if I could sit that long with it lol! Thanks for the tip tho
Love the tip! thanks….
Glad to hear you had a great time art the wedding…! You and your friend look so happy….
Thanks Crystelle! We did she was an awesome calm bride!
This makes me happy 🙂
me to 🙂 perfect for a wedding that coming up in what 6 weeks now?
My mother always said hydrogen peroxide and baking soda were two old-fashioned and effective ways to get teeth white. After spending money on various products, I am thinking of finally trying hydrogen peroxide.
yay! Hope it works well!
Thanks for this blog!!
your blog is very informative.
Hi, just a moment back I was searching for the information on the same topic and now I am here. So much information, really well executed blog. This is really informative and I will for sure refer my friends the same.
Thanks glad you like it!
Wow, your teeth do look so white! Hydrogen peroxide does help in whitening teeth because of its antiseptic properties. It’s actually being used by dentists as a bleaching solution. It’s also relatively cheap, but be sure to consult a dentist before using it, especially if you have sensitive teeth and gums.
Thanks for the tip!
