Teeth tend to stain over time for various reasons such as coffee, smoking, and bad hygiene…
Before you run to schedule an appointment with the dentist, read on for a few ideas that are simple and very affordable.Here’s the top three easiest methods you can try from home to help whiten teeth naturally without spending a fortune. That’s something to smile about.
Baking soda is one of the best ingredients used to whiten teeth and you probably already have it in your kitchen.
1. You will need a tbsp. of baking soda mixed in with your toothpaste. You apply it on your toothbrush and brush as normal.Try doing this twice a week and over time the baking soda will remove stains or brighten your smile.
2. Strawberries have also been used to whiten teeth. Mash up 1-2 strawberries with your regularÂ toothpaste and brush your teeth. Be sure to rinse off well since strawberries are very acidic and may damage gums and enamel if left on for too long.
3. Another technique you can use is adding lemon juice and salt to 1-2 tbsp baking soda, mix it with enough toothpaste for your brush andÂ brush as regular.
I wouldn’t recommend using the lemon and strawberry pastes too often since the acid nature of these fruits is bad for your tooth enamel and gums, but the baking soda one alone is gentle enough on gums and teeth to use a couple days a week.
