Whiter teeth, like every other good thing in life is something that most people in our cosmetically driven world desire to have. I still recommend you go see your dentist occasionally for teeth cleaning, plaque extraction and polishing. Some people have very sensitive teeth while others cannot afford the cost of these services.
This is why I am sharing with you various natural ways we can use to whiten your teeth. With a bit of patience, I think we can naturally restore whiteness to our teeth. They may not get to be scary white like the milk teeth of babies, but they’ll appear more like you took good care of your pretty pearly whites rather than just bleaching them like crazy.
The use of baking soda to whiten the teeth has been in existence for a long time now. It is very simple to use. Make a paste with the baking soda using water or lemon juice. Brush your teeth as you normally do with this paste.Make sure you wash your teeth thoroughly after use. Baking soda is acidic and so it bleaches the enamel thereby restoring the natural white colour.
Strawberries are high in Vitamin C, which can help in breaking down plaque that is causing your teeth to look brown. It also has an enzyme called malic acid, which may help to remove surface stains. You can add it to baking soda to form a paste. Brush your teeth twice daily with it.
Lemon or Orange peels
There have been reports that lemon and or orange peels will also do the trick of whitening your teeth. Guess you don’t know until you try. Here again, these food products are very healthy and good for your stomach but the acid content might eventually wear away the enamel on the teeth. So if you use lemon or orange peel always rinse afterwards to be on the safe side.
