Hydrogen peroxide is a widely used bleaching agent and it can also help with teeth whitening. Moreover, it has anti-bacterial properties which are helpful in maintaining oral hygiene.

Hydrogen peroxide can be used in two different ways. The first is to use it as a mouth wash. For this purpose, you need to dilute it by adding water. Use equal amounts of hydrogen peroxide and water, and mix them. Use this mouth wash after brushing your teeth.
