How to Whiten your Teeth at Home

There’s nothing as attractive as a smile. But a smile that reveals a set of sparkling white teeth is quite alluring.

However, the food we eat and the beverages we drink can stop us from having snow-white teeth. This is because such foods and beverages tend to stain our teeth. Beverages like tea or coffee are well-known culprits in this. When your teeth get stained, your teeth assume varying shades of yellow or at the very worst brown!

To get white teeth, most people go to dentists for a teeth whitening treatment. Some go for teeth whitening stripes. Most times, these methods are quite expensive.

Before you opt for these expensive teeth whitening treatments, you could try whitening your teeth using the some items you have in your kitchen cupboard? These natural methods of whitening your teeth are safe and have no known side effects but it is always safer to speak with your dentist before trying any of these methods.

So with the disclosure above out-of-the-way, here are some of the ways you can whiten your teeth at home.

 

Baking soda + lemon juice

Baking soda has been know to be a very useful item in your kitchen. It can perform a lot of wonders in the area of cooking and cleaning. When baking soda teams up with the juice of a lemon, it makes an effective teeth whitening paste.

Take some baking soda and mix it into a clean bowl. The baking soda you pour in the bowl should be enough to clear all your teeth and make them whiter. The next thing to do is to squeeze out the juice from half a lemon. The baking soda should come to the consistency of a paste. The baking soda will bubble but don’t worry, it’s pretty safe to use.

Apply the paste on your teeth with your finger or use your toothbrush and brush your teeth. Do this consistently for a couple of days and your teeth will be several shades whiter.

 

Brush with Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Cider Vinegar is getting quite popular these days with its various health benefits and versatile uses. Apple Cider Vinegar can help whiten your teeth too. It is quite acidic which is good to help breakdown plaque and fight germs in your mouth.

Take some Apply Cider Vinegar, use it to brush your teeth everyday until you get your teeth to the desired shade. Make sure that you brush your teeth with your regular toothpaste immediately after brushing with Apple cider vinegar as the acids in the apple cider can be very strong and destroy the enamel.

All you have to do is to mash-up about 5 strawberries. Apply the mashed strawberries on your teeth. Use your fingers to rub the mashed strawberries all over your teeth. With consistent use, your teeth will become whiter and whiter.
