No-Tech Teeth Whitening

If you'd rather pass on the peroxide, check out these other options to whiten your smile.

Baking Soda - The refrigerator deodorizer also removes discoloration on your teeth. The abrasive particles polish the surface while a chemical reaction between baking soda and water lightens stains. You can damage your enamel with the scrubbing, so don't do it more than once a week. Just dip your toothbrush in the soda, or switch to a toothpaste that contains baking soda like Arm & Hammer.

Feel the Crunch - Foods that are high in cellulose, a strong starchlike compound found in celery, carrots and apples, act as natural abrasives, cleansing teeth and removing surface stains naturally. Greens such as spinach, broccoli, and lettuce contain mineral compounds that form a film over the teeth so pigments from other foods can't stain.
