Do you like what you see??
One thing people love is a beautiful smile…that’s what lowkey attracts people to you right?
“I love your smile”
Everyone wants their smile to be perfect and it’s a plus when your teeth are white cos it makes their smile even more attractive!
First of all, remember this: no normal human being’s teeth are very white. It’s usually slightly yellow but not too yellow.
According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, abnormal tooth colour is considered any colour other than white or yellowish-white.
But sometimes, the teeth become a darker yellow that is usually caused by bad dental practices, consistent intake of some beverages and food such as coffee which easily stain the teeth and several other factors.
Fortunately, we’ve got the perfect solutions you can try and please remember…you still have to brush twice daily!!
This is one of the best natural methods for teeth whitening. Baking soda has natural whitening properties and you can easily buy some in the market or any shopping mall. Add it to your toothpaste and brush with it twice every day. It will take time but you will notice some changes!
Apple Cider Vinegar
Dilute this with water and swish it around your mouth for some time but do not do this every day cos apple cider has been discovered to slightly soften your teeth.
Usually, the stains are caused by bacteria in our mouths. It’s this same bacteria that causes plague! Fortunately, coconut oil is a great oil choice for killing bacteria including the one in your mouth. All you need to do is pour some in your mouth, swish it around for a while and spit it out. Do this consistently and your teeth just might get brighter!
Some people have found out that brushing with the powdered charcoal removes toxins from the mouth thereby removing stains from your teeth. We won’t suggest picking up the charcoal in your house, please. Try the shopping malls and also some huge pharmacies and ask for activated charcoal.
People have sworn by rubbing orange, lemon or banana peels on their teeth to make them whiter and this is slightly true because banana peels have some properties that can help exfoliate your teeth so maybe you can try too!
Ease up on the wine
Brush your teeth! Two times every day: morning and night and slow down on the sweets, coffee and wine cos they contribute to staining your teeth to give it that dull yellow colour. So, ease up and brush as you should and you wouldn’t have to worry about whitening!
None of these methods has been scientifically proven to make teeth white but they have been tried and tested and to be honest, if your teeth do not get whiter from one of these methods, you’d at least have cleaner mouths.
