How regularly should I whiten my teeth?!


Question: How regularly should I whiten my teeth?
I just whitened my teeth with 1/2 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide and 1/2 table spoon of baking soda. (I really don't feel like spending 25 dollars on a whitening kit.) It made my teeth a little bit whiter, but I am confused on how often I should be doing this? Detailed answers are appreciated. :)

Enjoy everything in moderation. No more than twice a week. =]
Putting too much abrasives on your teeth can erode the enamel and cause gingivitis or another tooth related disease. Also, plaque will settle on your teeth quickly with the erosion, and form tartar.

Consult your dentist before whitening your teeth with anything. Whitening can break down your enamel causing tooth decay.
