How to Whiten Your Teeth Naturally

teeth whiteningWhite teeth is everyone’s heartfelt desire though many people do not want to work for it. Thousands of dollars are spent on dentists and teeth whitening methods while not realizing that it is also possible to get your pearly whites back right at home. However, you will require a dentist’s help in this regard as well.

Rather than undergoing expensive treatments and buying over the counter medicines and creams to whiten your teeth, you can practice a few remedies at home which can guarantee that your teeth will start to shine in no time:

1. Baking Soda

Baking soda is a very effective remedy for teeth whitening and cleaning. Simply mix it with a little salt and your usual toothpaste, and apply using a toothbrush. Be careful as baking soda, if used incorrectly, can cause your enamel to erode, since it is a hard and gritty powder. Rinse your mouth after three minutes of application. When used regularly, you will see the difference within a week.

You can also use Hydrogen Peroxide in a different form as it acts as a great antibacterial agent and helps in the cleaning of your teeth. It also acts as an overall tooth and gum cleaner so you should mix it in your toothpaste as well.

2. Oil Pulling

Oil pulling is a method used to rinse the mouth with edible oils such as olive or coconut oil. Take two teaspoons, keep it in your mouth and gargle for at least ten minutes to whiten your teeth.

One of the biggest benefits of oil pulling is that not only does it help in removing discoloration and stains, but it also kills off all the bacteria that resides between teeth. This greatly improves overall oral health and even removes any traces of bad breath.

3. Oral Hygiene

Oral hygiene is one of the most important rituals practised in the civilized world today. Good oral hygiene removes any threats of infections and discoloration. Brushing twice a day, flossing afterwards and using antibacterial mouthwash is all part of maintaining good oral hygiene and keeping your teeth white and long lasting.

While these tips work in most cases, you will need an in-office treatment if your teeth are badly stained. But, there’s no need to worry because help is here. We at Karen Gordon, DMD, Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Hollywood, Florida offer teeth whitening. Our dentist will help you get the white teeth you need in no time.
