HyDrOgEn PeRoXiDe for my TeEtH?
So I want a whiter smile, but don't want to spend too much money, is it true that you can just gurgle hydrogen peroxide and it will whiten your teeth?? HELP!!


Princess Kalishpa
Yes it is true
i've done it myself
it also kills bad breath
and gets rid of tons of germs
it taste terrrbile
but it works
it has directions on the bottle on what to do when u want to garggle it
make sure you dont swallow any
or at least not to much
and only do it
once or twice a week

hope this helps

I use act restoring mouthwash and i mix Listerine whiting pre-brush rinse with baking soda like baking soda and water only baking soda with whitening rinse

yes it is good for whitening but they told us in school to make sure you do not do it every day because it can kill good bacteria in your mouth too, but there is nothing wrong with doing it twice a week or so, i brush my teeth with it before i go out or something and i can notice it

Hydrogen Peroxide is totally safe to use for your mouth. First rinse your mouth with water. Next, swish a little bit of hydrogen peroxide around in your mouth (not too much since its volume will increase with the foaming when you put it in your mouth). Also, you can dilute it with some water if you want to, but it's not necessary. After that, rinse with water again, and brush teeth as normal.

No 1....
Im not sure if anyone mentioned that you have to dilute it first before using Hydrogen Peroxide.

my grandmother use to make me dip my tooth brush in a bottle of hydrogen peroxide, witn toothpaste already on it....anyways, it will turn your teeth a couple shades whiter!


I've heard a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda should do a sufficient job

re animated
Yikes, don't gurgle... what I do is dip a toothbrush in the peroxide, and just brush the front of my teeth for about thirty seconds.. then rinse my mouth out with water. I don't suggest doing it more than a few times a month because it will wear down your enamel

Yea sure does, Ive done it for a really long time and it makes my teeth whiter :D

yes, but dont swallow it.

I used it diluted when I had braces and also when I had an abcess, but before you do this check with your dentist. There are less irritating ways to bleach your teeth! Plus this tastes nasty!

yes but don't gurgle, swish. : )

NO. A doctor might have you rinse your mouth with very diluted HP solution to debride dead skin after a serious burn or injury to your mouth.

In a drugstore you can't but a solution more that 3% HP. For rinsing, you would mix that 50/50 with water (to get a 1 1/2 percent solution).

HP concentrated enough to whiten your teeth would destroy the inside you your mouth and throat. For whitening, it has to be applied by a dentist who will make sure that it only touches your teeth.

DId u HaVE T0 PoSt uR qUeSti0n WiTh AlTeRnAtInG cApS???!?

damn hate tht

but anyway i heard gargling tht was good
but swallow it and u have to call poison control center

yes, it works.

Yes! My dentist originally recommended this for me when my wisdom teeth were coming in, so that my gums would not get infected, and I noticed a lovely side effect...my teeth turned very white!

The peroxide also prevents my gums from becoming tender, and it keeps me from getting canker sores. Just be careful not to swallow it!

before you brush, you can cover the toothpaste on the tooth brush with baking soda. i do that, and i have a whiter smile. :D

Yes, its true.

AnD plEAse S+op TyPiNN Lyk DiS
Its stupid && annoyingn &&
everyone will shun you.

It's not a very dangerous substance. Its primary use it for disinfecting small cut and wounds, but it does just as well for whitening teeth. My dad brush with the stuff for almost 50 years and hes fine.

I received an email that said it was true, and I believe it since some of the whitening toothpastes contain peroxide. You can also try making a mixture of salt and baking soda doesn't really matter about the amounts of either, wet your toothbrush and dip it into the mixture and brush your teeth. That is something my mom always had me do when I was a kid. It's kind of like a cleanser for the teeth. Just rinse good and don't swallow it.

yes it can be used as a gargle (I brush with it instead) - its a main ingredient in a lot of teeth whitening products

brush with it if you gargle with it your mouth will just foam up....
so i guess you could do both BUT DON'T swallow it....

Yess I do it all the time just dont swallow any!

ive got a teeth whitener mouth wash and hydrogen peroxide is the number 1 ingredient so probably yes.

Wutz it worth 2 ya?
Yes, my dentist reccomends it over all the dental whitening stuff because they all only get the surface. The peroxide gets all the spots and even in between the teeth. He said you can do it 2-3 times a day if you'd like, just be careful not to swallow it. He said you can add a little mouthwash to it for flavoring too.

I don't know about whitening, but I hear it works great for bad breath.

Peter Griffin
yes, mix 2 parts hydrogen peroxide to 1 part baking soda... and bursh with it for 2-3 minutes 3 times per day. that's essentially all that those "teeth whitening toothpastes" are anyways.

(Dont use your hydrogen peroxide once it's over 4 months old... it "dissociates" back into Water and Oxygen quickly once opened, and youre essentially left with a bottle of H20 after that other Oxygen atom leaves.

sure, my relatives do this. I think that brushing your teeth 3 times a day well works best, and staying off high sugar foods.

Yes! It works! I tried it and it does whiten teeth. You have to keep doing it though, or it will go back to it's original color.
