How to Whiten you Teeth at Home


Teeth whitening can be expensive, but here are some tips you can do to whiten your teeth using products you can find in your own home.

  • Lemons. Lemons are natural whitening agents. They are used for facial skin care and now also for your teeth. Lemons have been used for a long period of time for homeopathic remedies, and its effectiveness is obvious. To whiten your teeth with lemons, all you need to do is add lemons to a glass of water and rinse your mouth with it daily. This will help cleanse and whiten your teeth.
  • Orange peels. This fruit rind also has high acidic properties. Get orange peels and rub them on your teeth. This will help remove stains and help whiten your teeth. You can use this regularly for as long as you need.

      • Baking soda. Baking soda is an all-around product. You can use it in your household as well as for your skin, and now you can use it to effectively whiten your teeth. All you need to do is mix an ample amount of powder with water and from a paste. Brush your teeth with the paste. Make sure you brush gently so that you don’t damage the tooth enamel. You can do this twice a week or once a week until you achieve great results.
      • Bay leaf. These are very effective in whitening your teeth. Simply rub them on your teeth—or if you want, you can combine them with another teeth whitening method for maximum results.
      • Strawberries. These are not only delicious, but they can be great teeth and skin whiteners, too. They are often considered only as a food and are overlooked as a powerful agent for whitening. To use strawberries for whitening your teeth, crush them and apply them to your teeth. You can also eat one every day while gently rubbing them against your teeth.
      • Spinach. This is not the most scrumptious way to whiten your teeth, but it definitely can help. Rub fresh spinach leaves on your teeth as often as necessary to achieve whiteness. Spinach not only has great whitening effects, but it is also very nutritious.
      • Salt. You can use salt and sprinkle it on your toothpaste together with baking soda. This will help maximize the efficiency of baking soda to whiten your teeth.
      • Good hygiene. Brush your teeth twice or thrice every day. Do not forget to floss. Gargle with water and rinse your teeth after every meal. This will prevent bacteria that can cause plaque and therefore prevent the formation of tartar and cavities.

                  Tips and Warning

                  • If you have sensitive teeth, it is best to consult with your dentist before trying any of these procedures.
                  • In the event that any of these do not work, you can consult your dentist for teeth whitening treatments that can be done in the clinic.
