The Poor Girl’s Guide to an Expensive Smile

The fastest way to ruin a bold lip is yellow teeth. Teeth whitening treatments can be expensive and even at home treatments can run you around $50. Luckily, Dr. Sherri Worth, who’s been a pediatric orthopedist and emergency dentistry expert, known for her work on Fox’s hit reality show, “The Swan,” where she helped over 40 different women transform their smiles, reveals her “magic mix” for a dazzling smile—for under $10! Just grab a soft toothbrush, baking soda, and hydrogen peroxide.


Wet your tooth brush with some hydrogen peroxide and dip it into baking soda. All of the bristles should be covered so that your toothbrush bristles are white.


Brush your teeth for 2 minutes (Spitting if necessary)


Spit out of the baking soda, and rinse your moth clean with water (you don’t want baking soda in your mouth for a long period of time. Using mouth wash after can help remove the bad taste of soda if it is unbearable.


Do not use this method too often as the abrasive can permanently damage the enamel of your teeth. Baking soda can dissolve orthodontic glue. Do not use this method if you have braces or a permanent retainer. Best used only once or twice a week. Don’t brush too hard for a long term as it may damage your enamel (which is called abrasion), leading to hypersensitivity. Do not put too much baking soda or it can damage teeth.
