  • I have been using Pearl Drops paste for years and they are not expensive . It is gentle and effective ( no peroxide ) and highly recommend it . You can get them at supermarkets or pharmacies .

  • I would make a paste using bi-carb of soda.

  • A dentist told me you cannot change the basic colour of your teeth. So if your teeth are a creamy colour you will never get them to go white but you may get them to go a creamish white if you are lucky! lol!!!

  • Strawberries are a myth – they make the gums redder and nothing for the teeth. Teeth are porous and will absorb coffee, tea, red wine, cigarette stains – when you bleach the pores open and they recommend you you don’t drink/smoke when trying to whiten your teeth. There’s a kit at woolies with a mouth guard that’s pretty good. I tried bicarb didnt work fo me

  • Put some peppermint essence in the bi carb

  • Bicarb & peroxide works, also heard of rubbing strawberries on your teeth? Might have to look that one up :)
    Also a few of my friends swirl coconut oil in their mouths, oil pulling & they say it works :)

  • cut out coffee and cigarettes if your a smoker and get the kits that you wear to whiten them

  • I agree with bicarb – if you could stand the taste!

  • there are some good comments here

  • The new Colgate Whitening toothpaste works quite well but takes 3 – 4 weeks of daily use to see results.

  • How did you go? :)

  • I’ve heard of people using bi carb to whiten their teeth.

  • Theres whitening strips that i have seen at shops

  • Rub strawberries on your teeth!

  • Yes bi carb is a great product for this
