Has anyone tried this to whiten your teeth?

I just saw a tip on daytipper.com for whitening your teeth. Here it is: Mix baking soda and peroxide into a paste and smear it on your teeth. Let it set for several minutes before you brush and rinse it out. Try this a couple of times a week to achieve whiter teeth. Has anyone ever tried this? Did it work? And how did you get past the nasty taste?

Hey. Wow I naturally thought peroxide would burn especially in your mouth, why, because, I know when I was younger, i had put some in my hair to make it blonde and it worked, but I didnt rinse the stuff off my hands, and found that it made my skin peel in little spots... But then back then I never knew to water it down... So here Ive learnt something new, that I would not try on myself or anyone else for that matter...

I tried to whiten my teetgh a while back but found that the white-out fluid I was using tasted awful and just dissolved in my mouth. I just went back to using it to correct mistakes I'd made and left my teeth their natural greenish/black color

I just suffered through the taste..lol..it was worth the results. It does work but for really yellowed teeth..I wouldn't suggest suffering. It may not work and a dentist would be better.
