Ways of Brightening Your Smile Naturally
Posted on 4/20/2019 by Staff
Do you want a brighter smile? If so, there are a few things that you can do on your own to get whiter teeth. These are some steps you can take for a naturally brighter smile. Stopping Teeth StainsThe first thing that you should do if you want a brighter smile is to stop any activities that might be staining it. This includes smoking. You should also minimize the amounts of dark-colored foods and beverages that you consume. Red wine, tomato sauce, coffee, and dark fruit can all stain the teeth. Baking SodaBaking soda has shown promise in removing stains from the teeth, so consider making a paste out of a small amount mixed with water. Studies have also found that brushing with baking soda reduces plaque levels better than baking soda-free products, so the benefits could also extend to other areas of your oral health. Strawberries Strawberries contain antioxidants and other teeth-healthy compounds, and they may even help to whiten your teeth. That's because strawberries contain malic acid, which is a known tooth-whitening agent. Simply crush a few strawberries to a pulp, and for a more abrasive agent, mix with a little baking soda. Then spread it on your teeth, leave for five minutes, and remove. Apple Cider Vinegar Apple cider vinegar has a lot of purposes, but some people use it to remove stubborn tooth stains. It is especially helpful at removing smoke and coffee stains. The secret is in the acetic acid, but apple cider vinegar also contains magnesium, potassium, and probiotics that can help your teeth to stay healthy. However, to see any improvement with apple cider vinegar, you'll need to be consistent and brush for at least a month. We want to you to have a beautiful, white smile and offer many services that can help. From teeth whitening to veneers, we'll help you to get the bright smile of your dreams....
