Do you want a whiter, brighter smile without breaking your budget? Here are 5 ways to whiten your teeth NATURALLY at home!
1. Brush with Baking Soda & Hydrogen Peroxide.
Mix baking soda and hydrogen peroxide into a thick paste (toothpaste consistency). Add mixture to your toothbrush, and brush your teeth for 3 minutes. Leave the paste on for 1 minute and then rinse. You should immediately notice a whiter smile.
2. Try Oil Pulling.
Oil pulling is a practice that originated in India, and has been used for decades to improve oral health and whiten teeth. Swish oil in your mouth for up to 20 minutes. Try this method with coconut oil for the pleasant taste and smell. The idea is that the oil removes plaque and build up without harming the teeth or gums, and can remove toxins.
3. Brush with Activated Charcoal.
We use activated charcoal to clean out our pores on our faces, so it is no big surprise that using activated charcoal to brush your teeth removes toxins and stains- whitening your teeth! Apply onto toothbrush, brush for 3 minutes, and rinse!
4. Eat pineapple and other fruits (easy!)
The pineapple actually contains an enzyme that naturally removes stains! Other fruits containing malic acid can whiten your teeth, too!
5. Prevent stains BEFORE they occur!
Do you know the easiest way to whiten your teeth? Prevent the stains to begin with! Limit your coffee and red wine intake, don’t smoke or chew tobacco, and brush and floss your teeth daily!
