There are many ways to keep teeth white. Often, when people think of “Teeth Whitening” they immediately think of teeth whitening strips or a dental procedure. Both of these are probably the most effective way to whiten teeth, but they are not the only way. Here are a few ways to achieve whiter teeth at home. Keep in mind, you won’t receive a drastic difference, but still a significant difference.
- Coconut Oil is absolutely wonderful. It is one of the most versatile substances known to man. In this case, it is simple. Go buy a jar or bottle of coconut oil and swish scoop around in your mouth before you brush. A good 10-15 minutes is recommended for good measure. Once finished, spit it out and rinse with water.
- Baking Soda and Lemon Juice Paste is another great remedy. Baking Soda is well-known for whitening just about everything. In fact, it is what most people use when tooth paste isn’t available. But you can make a baking soda and lemon juice paste by mixing several teaspoons of baking soda with some lemon juice and brushing your teeth with that. The acids from the lemon juice will help the whitening process in the baking soda.
- Another great whitening recipe is a strawberry, salt, baking soda scrub. (Seeing a trend here?) Yes, another baking soda recipe. Vitamin C can help break down plaque. And since strawberries are high in Vitamin C, we recommend mixing a few of those with a pinch of salt and half a teaspoon of baking soda. Mash it all up together and apply to teeth via tooth brush.
