Unfortunately, there isn’t a natural teeth whitening method that provides miraculous results, but there are several methods that give extra shine and whiten the teeth a shade or two.
If you do not wish to make a trip to the dentist, there are a few methods you can try at home to get a whiter smile:
Lemon and ginger
This juice has the ability to give teeth shine and to clean the tooth enamel of spots. Use it to rinse your mouth twice a week. To make it, mix water and lemon juice in equal parts and you will have a brighter smile. To make it with ginger, do the same: mix ginger juice and water in equal part
Prepare yourself a paste of baking soda and strawberries
Specialists have found that strawberries are quite efficient when it comes to teeth whitening. Mash 4 strawberries in a bowl until you get a smooth puree, add a teaspoon of baking soda and mix well. Apply the mixture on the teeth with a soft toothbrush and gently brush them using slow motions to give the mixture time to act. The operation should last five minutes and can be repeated once a week.
Brush your teeth with baking soda and lemon
No, you should not do this every day because the enamel will be affected due to the high acidity, but it’s good to know that baking soda whitens teeth, and if you use it well you will whiten your teeth without affecting them. Mix it with toothpaste or lemon if the teeth look really bad. It is recommended to wash your teeth with baking soda once a week.
Eat raw fruits and vegetables
Apples, carrots, celery, broccoli and cabbage are ideal to whiten teeth if eaten raw. They’re all rich in cellulose, a nutrient that works as a natural toothbrush, removing food debris and bacteria. Also, these foods have an abrasive effect and helps teeth to regain their health.
Apples are known as nature’s toothbrush. If you’re at work, for example, and you do not have the possibility to brush your teeth after lunch, eat an apple. The acid and the fibers contained by apples make a great alternative teeth cleaning method.
