The market seems to be replete with teeth-whitening products. There are hundreds of options to choose from which makes it all the more overwhelming. And after the day ends, we are not even sure if we really need those products.
When the budget is tight and you want to take your teeth-whitening to a whole new level, consider these extremely useful home remedies to help you in the process.
Chew on Fruits
Fruits are a great natural option for teeth-whitening. Acids found in fruits help in oxidization of stains on your teeth. So chew on these healthy treats in between meals. Some good bets include strawberries, pears, apples, and orange peels. You can see instant stain removal on consumption of apples, strawberries, and pears. Orange peel helps whitening the teeth lightly when rubbed gently against them.
Be cautious when using lemons since their acid is strong in nature and it can potentially harm enamel of the tooth rather than doing good.
Baking Soda Benefits
Baking soda removes stains excellently and is a strong teeth whitener.
Sure, you can buy some toothpaste that contains baking soda, but if you need something more concentrated, you can make paste on your own. All you need to do is mix a tbsp. of baking soda along with 2-3 droplets of hydrogen peroxide (for chemical exfoliation) or a tsp. of salt (for manual exfoliation). Massage your teeth with this mixture with your finger gently and then rinse. Do make sure not to overuse baking soda and hydrogen peroxide as that can harm gums or enamels. Use this technique every now and then for good results.
Sipping With Straw
Snacking on things like sugar free gum or raisins increases production of saliva, which is a natural mouthwash. It washes away left behind food and stains. Flossing everyday also helps a great deal.
Electric Tooth Brush
One of the most effective ways to keep teeth white is to clean them regularly. Also, a decrease in intake of nicotine and coffee shows great results gradually.
