alternative whitening
 
I was lurking through the dental board and read something about using ear drops to whiten teeth. Is this possible and what kind should I get. I noticed auro ear drops but which specific ones do i try.

I don't know anything for sure..But I do know that I noticed that in some eardrops I got at one point, it listed the active ingredient as carbamide peroxide...Which is the active ingredient in most tooth whitening kits. So you could should check out the percentages..I think tooth whitening is usually effective at 15-20% carbamide peroxide. NOt sure what % is normally in eardrops.

I have tried the auro ear drops with 6% carbamide peroxide, but it doesn't work for me because I have tetracycline stained teeth. But a lot of people on here say it works for normal tooth staining. Just make sure you get the ear wax removal ones instead of the regulare ear drops which contain alcohol.
