1) Oil pulling for whiter teeth
This may seem a bit bizarre, but I assure you that this IS the cheapest, most effective method to whiten your teeth. I promise you that this will whiten your teeth just as much as a $500.00 professional treatment for about $5.00, or feel free to bash me in the comment section. Its really quite remarkable. All you do is take organic cold pressed oil, such as sunflower oil, or even better coconut oil, and swish it around your mouth. These are easy to find at a health food shop or online if you need I will recommend some good brands below..
How To Do Oil Pulling To Whiten Your Teeth
1) Take 1 – 2 table spoons (whatever you feel comfortable with) of your oil of choice and put it in your mouth.
2) swish the oil around your mouth continuously for 20 minutes. Make sure the oil in continuously going over all areas of the teeth and even going over your tongue. Essentially your entire mouth.
3) After 20 minutes spit the oil out. It will be foamy and white. This is a good sign.
4) Rinse your mouth out well and brush your teeth to remove any remaining oil.
5) Repeat twice a day

You will be amazed at the results you get from doing this for only two weeks. Another thing is, this oil pulling may even make you feel better in other areas of life. I do not know if I agree, but many people claim that the practice of oil pulling actually pulls toxin out of your body via the blood vessels under and around the tongue.
Hence the name oil pulling. Toxins naturally attach to oils and this practice is very common among holistic healers. It has been said to cure hundreds of chronic diseases and ailments. I don’t know if this is all fact but I assure you it will whiten your teeth. I have seen the results on myself and they are astonishing.
Another thing to mention is that oil pulling will completely eliminate bad breath. It does this better than anything you can buy from the dentist or pharmacy. Just another one of natures free cures that the heath industry doesn’t want you to know about.
2) Baking Soda + Peroxide
If you don’t have the patience to swish oil around in your mouth for twenty minutes twice a day then there are more simple routines to get your teeth extremely white. One easy at home solution is using baking soda and hydrogen peroxide.
How To Whiten Your Teeth With Peroxide and Baking Soda
1) Go to the store and buy a 3% Hydrogen Peroxide solution, which is safe for oral use.
2) Create a hydrogen peroxide and backing soda paste.
A) Mix 2 teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide and 3 teaspoons of baking soda until a paste forms. You can modify these measurements until you find a consistency that you are comfortable with. The paste should be about as thick as toothpaste.
B) Add a small bit of mind toothpaste if you want to add a little flavor to your mixture. You can also add a drop of peppermint extract.
C) Add a dash of salt. The salt will exfoliate your teeth as you brush.
D) Put a generous amount of paste onto your toothbrush.
E) Brush the paste in small circular motions until all your teeth are covered. Once all your teeth are covered let this paste sit for about 2 minutes.
F) Rinse with water and remove all the solution from your mouth.
G) You can now brush your teeth with regular toothpaste to rid you mouth of any remaining mixture.
3) Do not use this formula too often as it may damage some enamel on your teeth. Once every two weeks is a safe bet.
4) Avoid swallowing any hydrogen peroxide and call poison control immediately if you do.
