There is no need to spend a small fortune on expensive teeth whitening products that usually contain a lot of chemicals. You can naturally restore the whiteness and the natural shine of your teeth by following these tips:
Consume foods rich in fiber
Eat more raw apples, cucumber, carrots, broccoli and celery in order to remove the stains from your teeth and keep them and the gums healthy. Any crunchy fruit or vegetable offers the same effects so you can choose your favorite.
Do not throw away fruit peels
You can use the fruit peels (the white part on the inside) to polish your teeth and remove the unwanted stains, as well as restore their whiteness. Orange and lemon peels are the best, but banana peels will do the job too. Always rinse your mouth with water afterwards in order to neutralize the acids that may damage the enamel. And never apply fresh lemon juice on your teeth because although it efficiently removes the stains, it also damages the enamel.
You can also use olive, coconut or sesame oil to remove stains and bacteria from the teeth. Just put one or two tablespoons of the oil in your mouth and swish it through your teeth for a couple of minutes. Spit it out and rinse your mouth with water afterwards.
Make a paste from activated charcoal and apply it on your teeth. Let it stay for a few minutes and then rinse with water. The charcoal will remove the stains, the bacteria as well as particles of food from your teeth.
Use your own saliva
Our saliva is a very powerful thing. After your meals, rub your tongue along your teeth to remove the pieces of food and then swirl the saliva along your teeth. It may sound disgusting but we have saliva for a reason – to begin digestion, to remove stains, to kill bacteria and even kill the pain.
Use Hydrogen Peroxide
Most teeth whiteners contain some kind of peroxide, although in very concentrated amounts. Our hydrogen peroxide that we keep under the sink is not that strong, but it is strong enough to work as a mouthwash. Just swish a few tablespoons around your mouth and rinse well afterwards. Be careful not to swallow it. The hydrogen peroxide that can be found in stores may contain impurities.
