There are a ton of affordable whitening products available that you can use every day, from toothpaste to mouthwash to gum.
How they work: Made with special abrasive and anti-plaque agents, these products eliminate plaque buildup and remove stains from your teeth. They are formulated with ingredients similar to what your dentist uses, but in less concentrated doses.
Key ingredients: Baking soda and hydrogen peroxide are the ingredients most often found in these types of products, because they’ve proven to be effective against tooth yellowing. Peroxide kills the bacteria that cause yellowing, while baking soda removes stains from the surface of the teeth caused by coffee, wine, tobacco, etc.
Price: These products are very affordable.
Ease of use: They are very easy to use. However, it’s important that you read the instructions carefully and follow them to the letter.
The secret is to brush your teeth three times a day (morning, noon and night) and integrate whitening products into your daily dental hygiene routine.
