Bleaching: Teeth whitening does not have to cost much

What exactly is bleaching?
Simply put, bleaching is the same as bleaching hair. So with the help of chemicals, the colour or discolouration is removed from the teeth. As a rule, hydrogen peroxide is used, just like in the hairdresser’s practice. An alternative to this is carbamide peroxide, which is increasingly used.
Who wants to give his smile a shining white, has different possibilities.
The best known household remedy and thus also the cheapest variant of bleaching is the use of baking powder. Instead of toothpaste, teeth are brushed with a mixture of baking powder and water. The teeth are whitened by the scouring effect and the chemical reaction of the baking powder with the water. This method is the cheapest. A packet of baking powder costs less than one euro.
