A pearly white smile is something which many of us would love to have and there are seem excellent natural remedies which you can use to achieve just that. There are many different factors which can take their toll on the color of our teeth and from coffee to reed wine, cigarettes to sugar our teeth can very quickly lose their naturally occurring whiteness. I was recently at my local Harley Street dentist and I asked about some natural remedies to white teeth, which the dentist told me can actually work. And so if you have been looking to improve the whiteness of your teeth, here are some tips on doing so at home.
Brushing With Baking Soda
Baking soda not only has natural whitening properties but it is also mildly abrasive which means that it can both get rid of stains, and make your teeth even whiter. As if this wasn’t enough, the baking soda has alkaline which greatly helps in minimizing bacteria in the mouth. If you are planning to use baking soda do not expect to see bright white teeth overnight, instead look to use this for several weeks with your normal toothpaste in order to see the positive impact that it can make.
Apple Cider Vinegar
The main active ingredient in apple cider vinegar is acetic acid which has been used in many products for decades to kill bacteria. When used once in a while the apple cider vinegar will clean your teeth, prevent further bacteria and it can also whiten the teeth. It should be noted that you mustn’t use apple cider vinegar for long periods of time as it has been shown to soften teeth, used sparingly however this can provide a great way in which to whiten your smile.
Many of the most effective toothpastes which you can use contain hydrogen peroxide which is a natural bleaching agent and also can kill bacteria. The toothpastes which contain hydrogen peroxide usually contain a high volume of it but for your use at home it is recommended that you only use a small amount which has been heavily diluted. The best way in which to use hydrogen peroxide is to use a 1.5% or 3% solution and use it as a mouthwash before you brush your teeth. Alternatively you can mix 2 teaspoons of hydrogen peroxide with 1 teaspoon of baking soda, and then brush your teeth with this mixture.
Something which has become quite popular in the world of celebrities in recent years is these of strawberries when cleaning teeth to make them look white. The mixture should use crushed strawberries and baking soda, which is formed into a paste that you will then use to brush your teeth. The result of the baking soda are that they will help to brush stains and remove bacteria and the strawberry contains something called malic acid which helps to remove the color of the stains and restore the natural whiteness of your teeth.
If you want white teeth, these are some great ways to get started.
