Whiten Your Teeth
For a sparkly smile, after brushing, dilute a small amount of 3-percent hydrogen peroxide with the same amount of water and swish around your mouth for 30 to 60 seconds, taking care not to swallow. Spit and rinse with water. Repeat daily for two weeks to see whiter teeth. After the initial two weeks, most experts recommend spacing out the hydrogen peroxide swish to once a week for maintenance. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends consulting a dentist before using an at-home bleaching product like peroxide, and especially if you have dark stains, or many crowns and fillings.
