How to Get White Teeth at Home

For home teeth whitening there are several options. The first and easiest to the majority of us is to try tooth whitening toothpaste. These popular toothpastes tend to be milder than other treatments for home use and very easy on the pocket book at just $4 a tube or under. You need to brush your teeth a couple of times a day anyway, so you really have nothing to lose by trying one of the numerous tooth whitening toothpastes.

Similarly, there are a variety of tooth whitening systems on the market available in your local drugstore. The systems range from paint on gels to strips and whitening trays. Most get fairly descent results and will set you back a mere $10 to $25 or less.

Home Remedies for Lightening Teeth

If you dislike the thought of chemical bleaching treatments or really tight on cash there are several ways to whiten teeth naturally with products found around the house. I'll warn you though that these home recipes have not been approved through the FDA like those commercially available, nor can I attest to either their effectiveness or safety.

The simplest recipe for whitening teeth is to mix baking soda with a few drops of hydrogen peroxide and then brush over the teeth. The paste will bubble from the chemical reaction when mixed and help to remove the surface stains on the tooth. Baking soda pastes are generally considered safe when used up to twice weekly but have a major drawback, they don't exactly taste good.

While, any of the above options will do the job for whitening teeth at home, my vote does not go to the home remedies for whitening teeth to get the job done. With the cost of home tooth lightening kits so low, I would rather go with something proven to be both safe and effective. There are numerous coupons for five dollars off or more in the Sunday coupon section of most newspapers.

If you want to get your teeth whitened for cheap or next to free, find a coupon for $5 off or more, wait for the produce to go on sale and then buy it. Alternatively, there are sometimes free trial offers online and free is a hard price to beat.
