If you're like most people, you're probably willing to do anything to achieve a bright, beautiful smile that can light up a room. Unfortunately, keeping your teeth white naturally can be very difficult. Here are a few tips that will help you maintain the whiteness of your teeth naturally.
Baking Soda and Hydrogen Peroxide
One way you can keep your teeth white is by brushing your teeth with a solution of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide every once in a while. You can make this solution by adding hydrogen peroxide to a small amount of baking soda. Mix the solution in order to make a paste and use the paste to brush your teeth as usual. Ensure that you pay extra attention to your back teeth. Not only will the solution keep your teeth nice and white, but it will also keep your mouth free of germs, as hydrogen peroxide is an anti-bacterial agent.
Before you brush your teeth with the paste, ensure that there is enough hydrogen peroxide mixed in with the baking soda. Just like sandpaper, baking soda is a very gritty substance. Therefore, if you add too much baking soda to the paste, you may end up removing the enamel right off your teeth. Ideally, the paste should not be gritty at all, nor should it be stiff.
Apple Cider Vinegar
One way you can remove the stubborn stains on your teeth is by brushing your teeth with apple cider vinegar. In fact, this method is especially effective when it comes to stains from coffee and nicotine. As long as you're consistent and persistent, you should start to see some results after a month or two. Ensure that you don't use too much apple cider vinegar when brushing your teeth since it is an acid and can remove tooth enamel. After brushing your teeth with apple cider vinegar, you will need to brush your teeth again with regular toothpaste. Preferably, the toothpaste should not have any fluoride in it. If you use fluoride toothpaste, ensure that you rinse your mouth out well.
If you drink coffee or smoke, it can be difficult to keep your teeth white. But you can whiten your smile with regular visits to a dentist office, such as Dr. Jeffery Spilman DDS, and at-home solutions. As you can see, there are many things you can do to keep your teeth white naturally. Follow the tips listed above and you will likely be successful when it comes to keeping your teeth beautiful and white.
