If you want to be proud of your white teeth and stop trying to hide them in photos, you must know that there are natural remedies that can be prepared at home, with low costs, and that can help you to get rid of the stains. We are here with 6 tips for you.
- Brush your teeth every time you’ve eaten or drunken
It is as simple as that: brush your teeth after every meal. Of course, depending on where you are, this can become a difficult task, but anyway, keep doing it at least when you are at home. The foods do not necessarily stain your teeth, but coffee and cigarettes do. It is recommended to have your teeth cleaned every 3 months at your dentist, but between two visits, you can rely on the natural remedies.
- Baking soda and hydrogen peroxide
Mix these two ingredients until you obtain a paste and brush your teeth with it. The anti-bacterial agents contained by the hydrogen peroxide are very beneficial for the oral health. Baking soda works as a scrub and, if it is used in very large amounts, it can affect the enamel of the teeth, so be careful when using it. Thus, when mixing the ingredients, make sure that there is enough hydrogen peroxide in the mixture, in order for it not to be gritty.
- Coconut oil
You can apply coconut oil on your teeth after you brush them, but we have an even simpler way: coconut oil pulling. It is enough to swish a spoonful of coconut oil in your mouth for 5 to 20 minutes. An alternative would be to put it on your toothbrush and to simply brush your teeth with it or to apply it on a washcloth and to rub it onto your teeth. It is beneficial for the gums, not just for the teeth, due to its antimicrobial properties.
- Apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar removes the stains on your teeth, especially if they are caused by nicotine or coffee. It is a natural whitener, but in order to be efficient you have to use it for more than a month. Anyway, it is important to also be careful, because the acid contained by this vinegar can damage the enamel of your teeth. Brush your teeth with toothpaste every time after you use apple cider vinegar.
- Lemon or orange peel
Use lemon or orange peel to whiten your teeth. Simply rub it on your teeth, but be sure you wash your mouth after this. You can also use hydrogen peroxide for rinsing your mouth, because it has antibacterial properties and also eliminates bad breath.
Just rub on your teeth the paste obtained from mashing a few strawberries. It works as a scrub and also bleaches your teeth. It could instantly remove the stains on your teeth. Rinse off the seeds from your mouth after this procedure.
