People like to think that their eyes are the windows to the soul, but the truth is it’s all about your smile. A vibrant, healthy smile can put you in the center of the room and win the trust or affection of those around you. Some people get that perfect smile by opting for laser teeth whitening or other forms of cosmetic dentistry. We firmly believe in doing things the all-natural way when possible. So listed below are nine absolutely amazing teeth whitening methods that you can accomplish at home and are all-natural!
Brush After Meals or Dark Drinks
You can use the method we listed above and combine it with this tip to really hit home with your teeth whitening experience, all while avoiding paying for the best cosmetic dentist around. Simply put: you need to make brushing your teeth a more common habit if you tend to snack a bunch during the day. Most foods don’t actually run the risk of staining your teeth because of contact. Instead, the real damage to your teeth, both structurally and cosmetically, is when the remnants of your meal sits on your teeth for hours at a time. Try to keep a toothbrush and toothpaste at the office for when you finish with lunch. Make brushing a consistent part of your day to keep that smile looking fresh. You might look a little neurotic doing this, but it is effective and your smile will be proof. If you are a smoker or coffee drinker then this tip is particularly important.
Fruity Baking Soda Scrub
Alright, so lemon juice isn’t your style and you don’t want to scrub the Internet for more dental cosmetic tips than you can handle. Where does that leave you? Fortunately it leaves you right here, with a special strawberry, baking soda, and salt based scrub. Strawberries are a tastier way to incorporate essential vitamins that fight plaque while the salt is your abrasive oral weapon of choice. Combined together you get a paste that is both effective and tasty enough to utilize. Baking soda is an additional abrasive additive but you can leave it out if you wish. In order to create this toothpaste you will need up to 3 strawberries, a little bit of sea salt, and half a teaspoon of baking soda. Mash up your strawberries as much as you can and add both the salt and baking soda. Mix this together thoroughly until the mixture is cohesive and then dip your toothbrush into it. Brush on the paste and let it sit in your mouth for up to five minutes. Rinse when you are done and repeat this every night for a week. Then you can start scaling back like we mentioned above.
