About a year ago I stopped using the $30 kits and started using a $1.00 bottle of peroxide and it worked just as good if not better. (hence why I don’t have a before and after picture as I have been whitening my teeth forever)
So here are the steps I follow
Rinse with 3% hydrogen peroxide for 30-60 seconds. (anything higher must be diluted with 50% water) When the hydrogen peroxide comes in contact with your mouth, a chemical reaction will take place and it will begin to foam, don’t worry it’s normal.
Spit out the rinse, do not swallow!
I have heard if you have never used any type of whitening agent on your teeth the Hydrogen peroxide treatment will take awhile, at least 6 months. However if you have pretty white teeth to begin with or have used the whitening agents in the past this is a fabulous way to keep up the look for the fraction of the cost.
So what do think, are you going to try it? Have you been doing this already? I wan’t to hear your thoughts!
