5 Ways To Whiten Teeth Naturally
Oil pulling is an ancient practice that involves swishing oil in your mouth to remove bacteria, it is also believed to help whiten teeth. There isn't much evidence from research which concludes this will work but it will improve your overall oral hygiene and many people have claimed to notice the difference. Give it a try!
Brush with Baking Soda
Baking soda is a popular ingredient in toothpastes due to its cleaning properties and ability to scrub away surface stains on teeth. You can find many home recipes online if you would like to make a paste yourself or choosing a toothpaste with baking soda can help to whiten your smile over time.
This one is easy right?? So strawberries are known to contribute to whiter teeth due to the fact they contain Malic acid which can soften and remove stains on your teeth. You could combine Strawberries super power with Baking Soda (as mentioned above) to create your own natural whitening paste at home.
Avoid Teeth Staining Beverages
Coffee, tea, sodas and red wine can all contribute to staining teeth. Avoid or reduce your intake or perhaps limit the time these substances will be in contact with your teeth by brushing soon after consuming them or using a straw where possible to direct the drink away from your teeth. I’m not suggesting sipping coffee through a straw but these small changes could make a big difference to maintaining a bright smile.
Activated charcoal toothpaste has become a popular option for teeth whitening. There are mixed opinions on its effectiveness and more evidence is needed to say for certain but many people claim that it's a natural and effective way to help remove and / or absorb surface stains on the teeth. I personally have noticed the difference and use activated charcoal products sparingly.
