Read on for tips on how to use an at home teeth whitening system and get those pearly whites white again.

At Home Teeth Whitening is possible now more than ever with an abundance of products on the market that are easy to use, safe and provide fast results for the majority of people. Try these tips for teeth whitening at home before getting a professional dental treatment; you could see great results for a fraction of the cost.

Things You Will Need

Whitening rinse

Whitening toothpaste

Whitening strips



Gum or mints

Step 1

First, purchase a trusted name in teeth whitening products such as Bright Smile, Supersmile, Smile Fusion or Crest for some examples of toothpaste that is provided in a two product system that makes teeth whitening super simple to use several times a day.

Step 2

Use a whitening rinse as you would a mouthwash. These are usually concentrated so a small amount will work. If you find it too strong for you, add a small amount of tap water to reduce the concentration. Pour 1/4 shot into a glass and swish around the mouth for at least one to two minutes – sing the happy birthday song for the best results. Be sure to swirl the rinse all the way around the mouth and tilt the head back so that you reach the back of the mouth as well. Spit the rinse out into the sink when done. Use a whitening rinse at least twice a day or after any meal, even after snacking.

Step 3

Next, apply a pea sized amount of whitening toothpaste onto your favorite toothbrush. An electric toothbrush is typically best since they contain at least two brushes that rotate in a counter clockwise and clockwise motion all around the teeth. Find great deals on all types, styles and sizes of electric toothbrushes online at amazon.com and they usually include free shipping for your convenience as well. Brush the teeth for a full two minutes making sure to get the front of teeth, backs as well as the tips of all teeth. Brush with a whitening toothpaste at least twice a day or after all meals including snacks for the best results.

Step 4

Rinse the toothbrush well and place upwards in a container to dry fully. Then, rinse the mouth out until all whitening paste is removed. You may need to brush with clear water for another short amount of time to completely remove all the whitening paste.

Step 5

Use a whitening strip twice a week to whiten teeth faster. Simply apply one of the strips directly to the top teeth just below the gum line and press into place. Use a second strip on the lower teeth in the same way. Allow the whitening strip to stay in place securely without eating or drinking during this time.

Step 6

Leave the whitening strips on for at least 30 minutes and repeat this process for at least 7 days and up to 14 days. Take a break after two weeks to allow the teeth and gums time to rest and to prevent any side effects of teeth whitening products.

Add other teeth whitening products to your daily routine such as whitening gum or breath mints and floss that assist in cleaning the teeth, breath and gums and get a sparkling white smile again! Amazon offers Watts Premier Teeth Whitening Gel that has received rave reviews for an affordable price.

Reduce your coffee, smoking and tea intake while working on at home teeth whitening for the best and fastest results and make sure to visit your dentist for regular check ups and a clean bill of health.

At home teeth whitening products can help to whiten and brighten your smile within a fairly short amount of time with continued use as directed and paying attention to what you eat and drink.
