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 regular  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 and  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.

Do you have any Diy teeth whitening ideas or have use tried any products that have worked for you?!

    There are some food and beverages that can really stain our teeth. That’s why proper oral hygiene is a must! It washes away germs and other elements. Since dental needs differ among people, visiting the dentist is important as he knows what’s best.
