No one wants a yellow smile, but if you've been paying attention over the past few years, smiles have gotten whiter and whiter. It's not at all unusual these days to see a celebrity, newscaster, or other appearance-conscious person with teeth so white they're completely distracting. Do you want a smile that "lights up the room"? No matter how white your teeth are, there are plenty of natural ways to whiten your teeth and enjoy a beautiful smile. What's more, teeth whitening at home is extremely easy.
1. eat strawberries
There is evidence that strawberries can help whiten teeth because they contain an enzyme called malic acid and vitamin C. Strawberries help remove surface stains while vitamin C washes away plaque. Mashing up a few strawberries and washing with the mixture once or twice a week can have positive results. You can also just eat strawberries, making sure you chew very well and let them brush themselves.
2. Baking soda and lemon
This can be one of the most popular natural teeth whitening remedies. The chemical reaction of the baking soda with the citrus lemon juice has an effect on your smile. Each of these ingredients works well, but together they are super effective. Use this solution only once a week, however, as it can wear away tooth enamel if used too often. If irritation occurs, the baking soda may be too abrasive for your gums, so discontinue use. If you are worried about damaging the tooth enamel, try another solution.
3. Eat juicy fruits and vegetables
Apples, celery and carrots are great for your teeth. These fruits or vegetables act as nature's toothbrush. Simply chewing removes excess food and bacteria from your mouth. It also helps to remove surface stains. Not only does the texture remove food particles and bacteria, but the acids in these fruits and vegetables actually keep your teeth whiter. Apples in particular contain malic acid, the chemical also found in strawberries (and teeth whitening products) that removes surface stains.
4. Drizzle with olive oil/oil
Gargling with olive oil or oil is an Indian medicine used mainly to improve oral he alth and cleanse the body. The process is actually quite simple, harmless and very cheap. Simply take a tablespoon of pure, organic olive oil and swish it around in your mouth for 15-20 minutes. After rinsing, spit out the olive oil, rinse your mouth thoroughly with water and drink 2-3 glasses of water.
