Most of us aren’t aware that the best natural ways to whiten your teeth are actually the simplest ways too. You don’t have to buy those expensive products or get pricey treatments. Pretty teeth make you even more attractive, and can make you feel more confident. Implement these easy and natural ways to whiten your teeth, and I can promise you’ll feel like a new person in no time!
Buy baking soda
Baking soda is cheap, easy to find, and is one of the best natural ways to whiten your teeth. Add just a pinch to some toothpaste, mix it up in a little bowl, and brush your teeth with the mixture at least once per day. I like to use it at night, since I’ve eaten all day, to remove the most stains from my teeth. Baking soda naturally whitens your teeth and in a more concentrated form, it has dramatic results. Be sure to rinse well afterwards since it doesn’t taste too great if left in your teeth!
Strawberries have been found to be one of the best natural ways to whiten your teeth. Their teeny tiny seeds act like little bitty scrubbers on your teeth, whisking away dirt and grime. Eat 1/2 cup a day for best results. Strawberries are also tasty and low-calorie, which make them guilt-free.
Ditch coffee and soda
I love, love, love coffee! Seriously, it’s one of my favorite things in the world, but I actually gave it up because it was ruining my teeth. No matter what I tried to use with the coffee to offset the stains, my teeth just looked yellow. So, I gave up coffee for complete vanity purposes. My teeth are now sparkling again and radiantly white. Soda does the same thing as coffee in terms of staining your teeth, as does dark tea. Soda is high in sugar overall, so I would avoid it anyway. If you can’t give up your coffee or tea, think about drinking them through a straw to offset the direct contact with your teeth.
Brush your teeth after every meal
This can be a hard habit to start, but I’ve been doing this for 8 years now and the results have been phenomenal! Brushing after meals is not only great to help whiten your teeth, but it is also better for your breath, gums and halting your appetite after meals. I carry a travel toothbrush and a tube of toothpaste in my purse at all times and make it a habit to visit the ladies room after every meal out, or here at home, to brush my teeth. If someone looks at you funny, they’ll get over it. More than likely, they’ll think you’re super healthy to be taking care of your teeth so efficiently. You may even start a trend!
Buy a natural toothpaste with whitening power
Many standard toothpastes are filled with terrible chemicals that can wreak havoc on your health and have been linked to cancer. Buy a natural toothpaste with whitening powers which contain ingredients from nature, and are tremendously effective.
