Many people are looking for natural ways to do things today instead of filling their bodies with chemicals, or applying chemicals to their skin. Even toothpaste has chemicals. That is why there have been numerous ways suggested to whiten your teeth naturally. Over 50 percent of adults over the age of 18 drink coffee. When you consider that coffee is one of the biggest culprits for staining teeth, there are probably a lot of people that need their teeth whitened. There are ways to whiten your teeth at home naturally, but if that doesn’t work…
Whiten your Teeth at Home
Here are some ways you can whiten your teeth at home:
Baking soda and peroxide: Because hydrogen peroxide is an anti-bacterial agent, by mixing a small amount of peroxide with a little bit of baking soda you can whiten your teeth while killing germs. The baking soda helps remove stains, while the peroxide kills germs that can cause gum disease.
Apple Cider Vinegar: Apple cider vinegar can help remove stains from coffee and nicotine over the period of a month or so, if you use it consistently. However, after brushing with the apple cider vinegar, you should brush again with regular toothpaste. Leaving an acidic substance on your teeth can remove your enamel.
Baking soda and lemon juice: While lemon juice does not consist of the same anti-bacterial properties that peroxide does, a paste of that made with baking soda has been a natural tooth whitener used by people for years.
If They Don’t Work
If for some reason these natural substances don’t work to whiten your teeth, or you need a quick fix, Dr. Huffstutler offers the in-office Kör Deep Bleaching System as well as a take-home whitening system.
