Hydrogen peroxide teeth whitening?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created July 05, 2013 at 6:21 PM

So, I used coconut oil and baking soda for about a year, and my teeth gradually grew more translucent and yellow (but who knows, maybe inadequate calcium nutrition also contributed). Now I have switched to a toothpaste with Novamin bioactive glass that is supposed to reenamelize teeth.

However, I'd still like to whiten / destain my teeth. I have been gargling 3% hydrogen peroxide for over a month, with little or no results. I guess I am wondering whether someone has used those whitening strips and whether they really give good results? And if you have other whitening solutions that really give proven results, please share!

Thanks.

Here's a crazy idea: how about I get a mouthguard for boxing and mold it to my teeth, then pour in hydrogen peroxide? What could possibly go wrong :P.

Insanely sensitive! I paid so much for mine, and can't use it anymore. BUT I am thinking of making my own peroxide "gel" with peroxide and cornstarch and use that in my molds. I have stopped using any toothpaste/rinse that has flouride and gylcerin, and my teeth are yellower. I hate that! Hoping this is a solution - just rinsing with peroxide doesn't give enough time for the solution to contact the teeth to whiten them. 3% peroxide is way milder than the 10% solution that completely has me reeling in pain whenever I use it!

True, but it makes your teeth more sensitive.

If your teeth get yellow really quick after cleaning, that means your gut flora is not okay. The only way to check it is by taking a special stool test.

Oh... which toothpaste are you using? I drink kefir often, would that make my gut flora OK? How would I go about checking it?

I've done the Crest White Strips and the cheapo $5.00 whitening gel from Walmart. Both work however I redo the cheap gel once a year cause it' cheap! the Crest strips are like $60.00.

Your best bet is to go to your dentist. They will take your bite and get you a tray that fits your teeth. They will give you a peroxide solution which you can put on each teeth in the tray. You can wear it a few hours a day for a week or so, and your teeth should be a few shades lighter.

My best friend is using whitening strips. I have tried hydrogen peroxide, it did not work for me.

I am using whitening toothpaste at this time and it is okay I guess. Check your gut flora because usually it is the cause.

I have been using a teeth whitening system containing about 44% Carbamide Peroxide from a local online vendor Bright Smile Malaysia. I was wondering is 44% too high for me? My tooth has quite severe ache especially after performing the treatment. However, I am happy with the results. Please advise if there is any side effects from such usage?

I know people who swear by crest strips, but just an fyi if your teeth are sensitive beware. I've tried before and have had severe tooth and mouth pain for a whole day afterwards, not fixable with advil.

Baking soda is abrasive and therefore isn't good for long term use as slowly it will take the enamel off your teeth. It's better to see your dentist, who will use a much finer powder that doesn't damage them

If you're not having coffee, tea or wine they shouldnt get so stained?

I freaked out when the bottom half of my upper teeth grew transparent a couple months ago. After reading some comments online, I decided to try supplementing with coral calcium. It has to be derived from coral - I don't remember why. Anyways, literally within 4 days, the were no longer transparent and had whitened quite a bit (remineralized?). It was an internal process for me, nothing that good dental hygiene could fix. Best of luck!
