Teeth naturally become dulled and stained over the years, even with proper dental care. Professional whitening can cost hundreds of dollars, and at-home treatments are quite costly as well. You can make a simple whitening gel at home with products that you likely already have. Using a homemade teeth-whitening gel is an effective way to achieve a bright smile without spending money on professional treatments or store-bought remedies.

  1. 1

    Mix 1 tsp of baking soda with 3 drops of glycerine in a cup until a paste forms. Glycerine is available in most grocery stores and pharmacies.

  2. 2

    Add 2 tbsp of hydrogen peroxide to 1 cup of water in a glass and stir with a spoon. Higher concentrations of hydrogen peroxide will produce quicker whitening results. Hydrogen peroxide is usually available in stores in three per cent and 12 per cent concentrations.

  3. 3

    Wet a toothbrush with the hydrogen peroxide solution, then dip it in the baking soda paste. Brush your teeth vigorously, re-wetting the brush in the hydrogen peroxide solution periodically.

  4. 4

    Rinse out your mouth using the remaining hydrogen peroxide solution. Perform the whitening procedure at least three times per week until the desired results are achieved.

Tips and warnings

  • Rinsing your mouth with a hydrogen peroxide solution also helps kill bacteria that can lead to problems such as gum disease.
