Hi, I'm Dr. Mike Glasmeier from First Impressions Family Dentistry in Antioch, Tennessee, and today we'll be discussing how to make versions of homemade teeth whitener. The two most common materials used for homemade teeth whitener involve, usually, hydrogen peroxide or baking soda. Assuming toothpaste has not been sufficient for removing stains and whitening teeth to satisfaction, baking soda can be used also on top of that. The advantages of baking soda is it's a lot more abrasive than the typical toothpaste, and with the harsher stains and darkness on the teeth, peroxide or the baking soda is a little bit more abrasive for help removing and dissolving stains that accumulate on the teeth. When baking soda isn't adequate as well, you can use an oral hydrogen peroxide mouth rinse. That will further penetrate into the teeth and help remove residual stains that have accumulated. While peroxide is effective in helping whiten teeth and remove stain, it is of very low concentration relative to what you can get at the dentist. In contrast, the stuff that you can get at the dentist typically ranges from about 30 to 40 percent, whereas household hydrogen peroxide is more or less 2 to 3 percent. In conclusion, there are multiple ways to whiten teeth at home. The two most common formulations for homemade teeth whitening usually involve baking soda or hydrogen peroxide.
