Follow Simple Natural Ways to Whiten Teeth…
Whiter teeth is something that many people in our modern driven world desire today. In fact, Americans spend more than $1.6 billion dollars in a particular year to whiten their teeth. That’s because having is white shade of teeth is more important. Being little patient, I think you can naturally restore whiteness to your teeth.
3 Natural Ways –
- Baking Soda and Lemon Juice Paste
- Strawberry, Salt and Baking Soda Scrub
- Coconut Oil Rinse
After doing this, once you get white teeth, you need to maintain it properly.
I personally recommend you to use Instant teeth whitening pen.
Follow the Steps in Detail :-
1. Baking Soda and Lemon Juice Paste
Baking Soda is not a shocker here. Sodium bicarbonate (its official name) is mildly not smooth; gently scrubbing away surface stains to return teeth to a whiter shade.
It’s also very alkaline (the opposite of acidic) . So, I think if you have a very acidic mouth or eat a lot of acidic food, it could help balance out the acidity, which would be useful as acid breaks down enamel.
This is strictly speculation on my part. It will also reduce the acidity of the lemon juice, which acts as a natural bleach of sorts. I use a mixture of baking soda and water on some days, and use the lemon juice on others, as I don’t want to overdo it.
-Several teaspoons of baking soda
-Enough amount of lemon juice to form a paste
Mix several teaspoons of baking soda with enough fresh lemon juice (or water) to make a paste. Wipe your teeth and any extra saliva off of them with a paper towel. Put a good amount of paste onto your toothbrush and apply.
Leave the paste on for 1 minute, then rinse, so as to avoid the acid effecting enamel. If you are using just water you can leave it on for up to 3 minutes.
2. Strawberry, Salt and Baking Soda Scrub
Strawberries are high in Vitamin C, which can help break-down plaque that is causing your teeth to look yellow. It also has an enzyme called malic acid, which may help to remove surface stains.
The salt acts as an rough portion of the paste, physically scrubbing away stain-causing sludge, and the baking soda is an extra touch that you can choose to leave out if you’d prefer.
-1-3 large strawberries
-A pinch of seat salt
-1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
Mash the berries into a pulp, and add a pinch of sea salt and ½ teaspoon of baking soda. Wipe any extra saliva off your teeth with a paper towel, and then apply a generous portion of the mixture to a toothbrush. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes, then rinse. Do this every night.
3. Coconut Oil Rinse
I know this sounds absolutely mad but rinsing your mouth with coconut oil (called ‘oil pulling’) is a unique, old, remedy that people swear to help whiten teeth.
It doesn’t sound like the most pleasant thing in the world, but I actually don’t mind the taste, and I think it does make a difference in the color of your teeth.
It won’t make a difference by “bleaching” per say, but lauric acid in coconut oil can get rid your teeth of bacteria found in plaque that can make them yellow.
It is also supposed to promote gum health, and help keep your breath fresh.
-About a tablespoon of coconut oil
In the morning, before you brush your teeth, scoop out a tablespoon or a little less (depending on your mouth’s size) of coconut oil. You can either soften it, or just put it in your mouth. Push, swish, and “pull” the oil through and around your teeth for 10-15 minutes, then spit it out, rinse with water, and brush your teeth.
Note: You can use either of the pastes after you have brushed your teeth at night.
Are these remedies going to guarantee absolutely white teeth within a week? No. You may start to see a difference, but it won’t be as instant as the commercial products.
In the end, will your teeth be so white people squint when you open your mouth? No. And I like it better that way. I have found that since using these my teeth are indeed whiter, my mouth overall feels healthier and it doesn’t look like I bleached the life out of myself.
We live in a world where photo-shopped faces (and teeth) and make-up covered celebrities set the standard for how we look, which makes life hard for people who like, well, real people.
As a result, we seem to forget what’s good for ourselves, and spend a ton of money just to look like the ideal. By going natural here, you can save the money for something else, feel better about yourself, and have a healthier mouth (and health is what, in the end, creates real beauty)
