How Do You Whiten False Teeth?

To whiten false teeth, scrub them using a nail brush and a hand soap and water solution. Allow the dentures to soak in a denture cleaner, followed by a diluted solution of bleach. Finish the process by allowing the dentures to soak in plain water before using them again.

  1. Scrub the dentures

    Using a nail brush, slowly scrub the dentures with hand soap and water. Scrub firmly, but carefully, around each false tooth.

  2. Soak the dentures in a cleaner

    Soak the dentures in a high-quality denture cleaner, following all directions labeled on the product.

  3. Soak the dentures in the bleach solution

    Mix 3/4 cup water with 1/4 cup of household bleach in a glass. The bleach must be less than 5 percent in strength. Very carefully place the dentures in the bleach solution and allow them to soak for 15 minutes.

  4. Replace the bleach solution with water

    Hold the glass under a sink, and slowly turn the water on. Allow the glass to fill up with water and overflow into the sink for one minute.

  5. Scrub the dentures

    Hold the dentures under running water, and scrub each tooth for two minutes.

  6. Soak the dentures in cold water

    Place the dentures in a glass of cold water. Allow them to soak for at least one hour before use.
