I found this Dr. Oz Teeth Whitener recipe and decided to give it a try. It says to take 1/4 cup of baking soda and mix it with the juice of 1/2 lemon and then apply it to your teeth with a q-tip. Leave on your teeth for 1 minute then brush. This amount was more than enough for both my husband and I to use. In the future I would actually reduce it to 2 TBSP baking soda with enough juice to make it a consistency to apply.
You will keep the whitener on your teeth for 1 full minute and then brush. I did notice an immediate difference. If you are a coffee or tea drinker it will take several applications before you notice a difference. You shouldn’t do this method too often as it may irritate your gums because of the acid in the lemon . If it does irritate then you should try 1 day on and 1 day off or even every 3 days. I love that this is a non toxic teeth whitener.
Of course using 1 time a month to maintain is a good idea.
