Are your teeth stained and yellow? Are your stained teeth causing you embarrassment? Are you looking for ways to make them whiter? Most of the people would suggest cosmetic procedures but not everyone can afford the expensive cosmetic treatments. Also, some people may not feel comfortable in putting the extra chemicals in their mouth that claim to offer long-lasting results.
If you are looking for natural remedies to make your teeth whiter, here’s a look at the solutions:
Oil pulling is one of the well known methods for teeth whitening. Though the effectiveness of oil pulling is still questionable, it is a newer remedy in the department of natural dental remedies. The trend might be new but the method is quite old. You have to take about spoonful of coconut oil and swish in your mouth for about 10-15 minutes. This should be done before brushing the teeth.
This is one such option which confuses people as charcoal is black in color. But in reality, charcoal is abrasive in nature which helps in removing the yellow stains and plaque from your teeth. You simply need to take some charcoal and rub on your teeth for a minute without touching the gums. You can then use your normal toothpaste for brushing.
Many fruits can help in making your teeth bright, especially the citrus fruits. Take the peel of lemon or orange and rub the inside of your teeth. But make sure you brush your teeth after that as acid of citrus fruits can damage your teeth if you leave it for longer. You may have to use it at least for a week to notice the difference.
The toothpastes which you buy from stores make use of baking soda as whitener. You can add some baking soda to your paste for same purpose. If you mix baking soda with Hydrogen Peroxide, you can come up with your own whitening toothpaste. Just try to make sure that the substances used are not too gritty.
