How to Naturally Whiten Your Teeth Using These Simple Home Remedies

Nothing beats a gorgeous, million dollar smile that brightens up someone’s day. People spend a fortune fixing their smile by getting some braces but even if their teeth are straight, the yellowing hue of their teeth leave much to be desired. Going for regular teeth cleaning and whitening in the local dentist is also not an option because this will cost tons of money. Some might try those miracle teeth whitening remedies in hopes of having a smile that can glow from its whiteness. However, these procedures are (as I said) pretty expensive and some promise a lot of results but end up not delivering as promised. However, there’s still hope for your killer smile. Here are some simple and cheap home dental care tips that will help bring out those gorgeous pearly whites without you having to break the bank.

 

REGULARLY BRUSH YOUR TEETH

A sure fire way for long lasting beautiful teeth is proper oral hygiene. One way to properly maintain oral hygiene is to never fail to brush your teeth regularly. This is in order for you to wash away any bacteria residing in and around your mouth. Brush your teeth regularly, especially after meals (and most definitely after sugar treats). This will prevent the build of dental plaque that may cause yellowing of teeth.

 

FLOSSING OF TEETH

Another home dental care tip which is part of proper oral hygiene is regular flossing. Unlike tooth brushing, flossing is a bit harder to do and most people skip this part of their teeth regimen. However, people do not realize that regular flossing can make your teeth appear whiter by ten-fold. Don’t skip this step in your oral grooming. Are you into using a planner? If you have to include this particular To-Do in your planner inserts and dailies, then do it and you’ll have whiter and cleaner looking teeth.

 

BAKING SODA AND CITRUS

Baking soda and citrus juices such as lemons are known natural bleachers. This means that they whiten surfaces due to the chemical reaction of baking soda to the lemon juices’ acids. A natural beauty tip would be to mix a teaspoon of baking soda with some lemon juice and let the mixture react. Wipe out excess saliva and junk from your teeth with some tissue paper then slab on the baking soda and lemon juice mixture on your teeth. Leave it on for a few minutes only, then wash it away by brushing your teeth. This will erode the built-up plaque on your teeth’s surface. Do this at most once a week because if you do this often, you’ll run the risk of destroying the enamel of your teeth, thereby causing more damage to it.

 

STRAWBERRIES AND APPLES

Strawberries and apples come from the same family and one of the things they have in common is having malic acid as one of their constituents. This acid is a natural antioxidant that can help in clearing out the yellowness of your teeth. In order to reap the benefits of these fruits, consume them regularly, making sure that the fruit makes contact with most of your teeth. This is so that the malice acid can do its job of making your teeth nice and white. You can also scrub pieces of apple and strawberry around your teeth in order to get the whitening effect of this fruit. This teeth cleaning tip isn’t only good for your teeth, it’s also good for your health. Don’t forget to include these fruits in your grocery list section in your planner inserts and stock up on these fruits so you won’t regret it.

 

EATING OTHER FRUITS AND VEGGIES

Strawberries and apples aren’t the only natural teeth whiteners found in nature. Consuming fresh fruits and vegetables help in cleaning your teeth by acting as natural teeth cleaners. The texture of the produce rubs on your teeth when you clean it, thereby ridding you of the gunk and grime that’s been building up on the surface of your teeth, making it less yellow. Consuming glow foods won’t just make your skin and hair look beautiful and vibrant, it’ll also make your teeth shine and stand out from your face. So a great health and beauty care tip is to go to your local farmer’s market and stock up on some fresh fruits and vegetables now. Eat most of them fresh and you’ll be reaping the benefits in no time.

 

USE STRAWS

One of the main reasons your teeth is discolored is because of the drinks you consume. Beverages such as coffee, softdrinks, high sugar juices, and chocolate drinks have a way of greatly discoloring your teeth. When you drink them normally, these substances clash with your front teeth frequently, thereby increasing the chances of your teeth to be discolored. A great way to prevent your teeth from looking yellow and unsightly is by regularly using a straw when you’re consuming these beverages. This will lessen the drink contact on the surface of your teeth and thereby preventing the yellowing of your teeth. You may be thinking that you’re gonna look mighty silly using straws for all your drinks (except water), but trust me, you’ll look even more ridiculous with yellow teeth. Also, if you think you’re going to be wasting tons of plastic by using straws regularly, there are many other alternatives to plastic straws. People are now producing paper straws that are 100% biodegradable. There also people manufacturing metal straws which can be washed and reused for as much as possible. Check out your local hardware or grocery if they sell these options and if you’re into planning, make use of those free A5 planner inserts, some you can freely download to remind yourself to go and get some of these straws for you and for your family, for whiter and more beautiful teeth.
