Five Ways to Naturally Bleach Teeth
Just about everyone would love to own a big bright smile. Unfortunately, many are plagued with yellowing teeth that certainly detracts from their smile. So, these individuals try commercial ways to mask or neutralize the problem. A dental specialist might cure the problem while charging enormous fees. Consequently, bleaching your teeth might become very costly. There is a good natural alternative to the expensive teeth bleaching methods that you can attempt at home and experience amazing results.
The baking soda method is used by many to naturally bleach their teeth before the emergence of all the popular products in the stores. The formula to make the preparation is easy. Take a tablespoon of baking soda and place in a small container. Add a few drops of water until the mixture forms a paste about the consistency of your regular toothpaste. Dip your toothbrush in the baking soda paste and brush teeth. Rinse your mouth afterwards with regular mouthwash.
Hydrogen Peroxide/Baking Soda
Mix hydrogen peroxide with baking soda until it forms a paste the consistency of regular toothpaste. Brush the teeth vigorously. Rinse the mouth with regular mouthwash. Use this method twice per day for fast results.
Mix a teaspoon of baking soda with your normal toothpaste just before brushing. Brush your teeth the way you normally would for a few minutes.
Take a large strawberry and cut in in half. Take the strawberry and rub it against teeth vigorously until your teeth start to turn pink. Leave on the teeth for several minutes and then brush with regular toothpaste. People report this method really works, but it sounds a bit messier than most of the methods.
Mix natural lemon juice and a pinch of salt together in a bowl. Take your fingers or a toothbrush and dip them into the mixture. Next, rub the mixture against the surface of your teeth for a few minutes. Lemon juice is a natural bleaching agent and salt is abrasive. The two work together to remove layers of yellow buildup accumulated from smoking, drinking tea and coffee.
Note: Always brush and floss your teeth thoroughly after every meal to remove all tiny particles caught in teeth that might lead to yellowing. Also, drink water after meals to rinse out any other particles caught between teeth.
