So I was curious on what to do..
I have honestly neglected my teeth a tad bit lately (bad I know..) But now Im starting to have bad breath and my teeth arent so white anymore..
Besides going to the dentist, is there anything I can do to improve the look of my teeth (cheapest, fastest way possible..if possible lol) and of course kill that dreaded bad breath problem?!
Also I want to note that I am breastfeeding my almost 5 month old! Thanks!!

I'm a dental hygienist.
Whitening toothpaste isn't going to do anything for you -they are not made to whiten teeth. They are made to help maintain whiteness after the teeth have been bleached.
The best thing you can do at home is to floss at least once a day and use Listerine. Listerine is an antiseptic that will help kill some of the bacteria in your mouth. Hydrogen peroxide isn't going to do anything for you either.
You really need to see a dentist - tooth decay and periodontal problems is what usually causes bad breath.

Maintain a good oral hygiene... brush your teeth and tongue twice a day to remove food particles and plaque, and floss between teeth once a day, preferably in the evening after you eat. Its best if you could brush after every meal, but just in case you cannot, make sure that you use a good quality chewing gum, or bad breath products between. These products not only guarantee that your teeth will remain clean, but they also kill bad breath.
