With a wedding coming up in less than a month, you could say I had very little to no time to book a dentist appointment for teeth whitening. 

The process can be painful if you have sensitive teeth, let alone the cost can be quite expensive.

I took to the internet to find me a quick and easy, yet cost effective method for whitening my teeth in the comfort of my own home. I have used the Crest White strips before, but always experienced shooting pain from my sensitive teeth.

I did not want to go through that discomfort again!

Behold the awesome website of Pinterest. All I had to do was type in “DIY teeth whitening” and voila I had results.

The very first result seemed simple enough, as I had every ingredient needed in my home that very day! 

To make the whitening paste, all you need is baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, water, toothpaste, toothbrush and a cup.

To mix you will add one teaspoon of baking soda, plus one teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide to half a teaspoon of water. Just add a dab of toothpaste and mix the ingredients.

Do not expect the paste to be thick. It actually comes out quite watery.

The process is fairly simple, as you just dip your toothbrush in the mixture and brush. Dip, brush, spit and repeat! For two minutes to be exact.

The mixture tastes a bit salty, but there is no bad aftertaste, no sensitivity, and the toothpaste adds the minty freshness for when you are finished. Within the first trial I immediately noticed a brightness to my teeth. The dull yellow that I could never quite remove, even with whitening toothpaste, was now gone!

I wanted to see how long the color would last, whether it be just a few hours or even longer, so I did not repeat the process until I noticed that I needed it again. For me, that took about a week and a half!

Now if you are aiming for those pearly whites, like I am, you can repeat the process once a week and once you achieve the color you want, then limit it to once or twice a month.

I have shared this recipe with friends and family, whom have all tried it and noticed results within the first time!

This really has turned out to be a money saving, painless process and I hope it works for you all just as well as it has for me!
