By April 19, 2016Confidence, History, Orthodontics

Imagine using peroxide from the bottle to whiten your teeth! Well, in the 1980’s people actually used this method at home and it was very popular!

But you think Peroxide was extreme!
Well we have uncovered some interesting facts on home whitening that we wish to share with you. For centuries people have used all sorts of home remedies to whiten their teeth throughout history.

About 4000 years ago Ancient Egyptians used Pumice and Vinegar grinding it into a paste to whiten the teeth. (ouch and yuck!)

About 3000 years ago Ancient Romans even used Urine to whiten their teeth!

In the 17th Century you could go to a Barbers shop, not only would they cut your hair, but they would even whiten your teeth!

Barbers would file down your teeth and add acid to bleach your teeth!

Thankfully today’s remedies and treatments are a little less extreme! We point out that you can trust the team at Fresh Smiles to deliver a fresh clean smile using the latest in science and technology.
