Cheaper Whitening Solution?!

I thought this was interesting, haven't gotten to try it yet

7. Brighten Your Smile
Mix your own whitener
Brushing with a paste made of baking soda and water a few times a month removes superficial staining and whitens teeth by a shade or two. "The graininess neutralizes stains and polishes teeth but isn't abrasive enough to wear down your enamel," says Jennifer Jablow, DDS, a cosmetic dentist in New York City.
Keep teeth whiter, longer
To sidestep stains when drinking red wine, chase your vino with a handful of crunchy raw vegetables. They have a brushing action that can rub away newly setting stains
Choose the right lipstick shade
"Colors with blue undertones make teeth appear brighter," explains Liebeskind. To figure out which of your lipsticks fit the bill, she recommends lining up three or four shades—in comparison to each other, it will be more obvious which are blue-based and which have yellow or gold undertones that bring out the yellow in teeth.
