Expert opinions are divided when it comes about professional teeth whitening. Some of them recommend it but some of the mare skeptical about this solution, considering it to invasive. That’s why some doctors recommend natural teeth
1. Strawberries whiten your teeth
They contain astringent substances, but also a lot of vitamin C. Astringent substances help to remove stains from the teeth surface, and vitamin C bleaches the teeth and prevents plaque appearance.
2. Apples cleanse teeth and protect them
When you eat a “crispy” apple, it has a similar effect to that obtained by brushing the teeth with a toothbrush. Don’t hesitate to eat an apple after half an hour from main meals because it will remove food debris, bacteria and stains from teeth surface. Malic acid found in apples is also used in tooth whitening products because it has a strong stain dissolving effect.
3. Raisins help to remove the dental plaque
Raisins stimulate the production of saliva that removes naturally the dental plaque, one of the main factors for cavities and gingivitis.
4. Teeth with baking soda
One of the most effective teeth whitening solution is baking soda and lemon juice. Prepare a paste from these 2 ingredients and after you’ve cleaned your teeth with a cotton pad from saliva, apply the paste and let it act for 1-2 minutes. Remove it with a tooth brush afterwards.
Important! Don’t leave this solution more than 2 minutes because lemon juice acid can erode tooth enamel.
5. Homemade whitening toothpaste
You can make homemade toothpaste by mixing 1 tablespoon of steamed coconut butter with 1 tablespoon of baking soda and 5 drops of essential mint oil for internal use. Brush your teeth with this toothpaste as you do with your regular toothpaste.
