Ever look in the mirror and realize the shade of yellow in your smile? As the years pass, your teeth are prone to darken. It’s an unfortunate consequence of the hard work your body goes through protecting you daily. The dull in your smile is a visible sign of aging and not to mention unattractive. No amount of makeup can cover up a stained smile. But if you’re ready to achieve a brighter smile, keep on reading. Below are a few remedies that are sure to brighten your smile!
Strawberries are an excellent natural whitener. The sweet berries contain malic acid, an enzyme that whitens teeth. All you have to do is crush one strawberry, add ½ teaspoon of baking soda, and mix. Brush with this paste, and you’ll achieve a brighter and plaque-free smile the same day.
Rinse with Hydrogen Peroxide
The benefits of hydrogen peroxide are known far and wide by the toothpaste industry. But did you know that rinsing your mouth daily with a hydrogen peroxide solution can significantly whiten your teeth? Purchase a 1.5% or 3% solution (what you find at drug stores commonly) and water it down. Rinse every day before you brush, and you’ll see results in no time.
Use a Straw
Do yourself a favor and avoid stain-causing food/beverages like coffee, sports drinks, and even hard candy! But if you’re a tea drinker or a fanatic of a fantastic beverage called wine that might be near impossible. Instead, whenever possible, use a straw (a reusable one, please). With a straw, you can enjoy whiter teeth and guilty pleasures all at once!
Follow these three steps habitually, and you will have your teeth a shade whiter by tomorrow! Though if you have heavy wear and tear on your teeth, these home remedies may not be enough. To see a significant change, visit a dentist! A dentist can have your teeth five shades lighter with a simple cleaning.
