AnswerYou can swish peroxide mixed with water. I have never heard of this for whitening but I know this is good for gum infections or bacteria.

for whitening, place a small amount of baking soda on your toothpaste before you begin brushing, and it will help whiten your teeth.

my dentist told me years ago to use peroxide straight-

Hydrogen peroxide is generally one of the most prominent ingredients in any tooth whitening product. To whiten teeth with hydrogen peroxide, you will need to dilute it first. One can find dilution instructions for this purpose on the hydrogen peroxide bottle.

No- in the UK we use hydrogen peroxide (bleach), bicarbonate won't do anything other than taste horrible and damage your teeth.

Hydrogen peroxide could slightly lighten the tone, with terrible effects all over the rest of your mouth. On a chemical basis, yes it (and other peroxides) could. It is highly inadvisable. Similarly to taking a bath in hand sanitizer, it works, but just don't do it.

You can use it for whitening teeth. Simply put some in a glass, add a little water, and swish with it. CAUTION: do NOT swallow!

1. You can either put the baking soda on your tooth paste while brushing your teeth.2. You can put hydrogen peroxcide mixed with baking soda (and just brush normal).3. You can put mouth wash mixed with baking soda (put about 1 spoon of baking soda) and stir (until baking soda dissolves) and swish it around in your mouth (for about 30 secs).4. You can get cold tap water mixed with baking soda swish in your mouth for about 1 min.5. And the whole process will be done and your teeth will be beautifully whitened in about a week or so!6. You can dip your brush into white vinegar, then into baking soda and proceed to brush your teeth. This will whiten you teeth for certain, however, do no more than 3 times weekly as this combination can erode enamel if used too much will corrode your teeth! at least not straight up

It has fluoride in it that strengthens the teeth and gums. It also helps if you swish and spit but don't rinse your mouth.
