Are you not exactly satisfied with the color of your teeth? Well, no need to rush to the dentist or buy expensive, yet unsuccessful products to whiten your teeth. Instead, try whitening your teeth with natural, inexpensive methods that might satisfy you in the end. The truth is that these methods take time, so for visible results you need a lot of patience. On the bright side, however, these methods are natural, thus they do not present a serious risk if used carefully. Here are the most efficient natural methods of obtaining pearly white teeth:
- Strawberries contain malic acid which removes the stains caused by coffee, red wine and sodas. Mix the crushed pulp with baking soda until it is homogeneous, apply it on your teeth and leave the mixture for 5 minutes. After that, thoroughly brush your teeth. Do this once a week to keep your teeth shiny.
- A mixture of baking soda and salt has been used for years in order to remove stains and it surely works. Besides killing bacteria, baking soda can also whiten your teeth if you brush them with this mixture.
- Hard wood ash seems to be a good teeth whitener as well because of its natural bleaching properties that are due to the potassium hydroxide. Mix it with a small amount of toothpaste and brush your teeth thoroughly. However, there is a drawback of this method: using it too often will damage your enamel, so do not use it more than thrice a month.
A useful tip: During the process of whitening your teeth eat cheese and yoghurt and drink milk daily (small amounts) in order to prevent tooth decay and enhance the re-mineralization of enamel.
