The best DIY Home Remedies for Whitening your Teeth.

Have you been considering getting a whiter smile, but aren’t sure where to start? You may be wondering what the best toothpaste for whitening is, or how often you should whiten your teeth.

The truth is there are a lot of variables to consider when it comes to whiter teeth. For example, age, genetics, and frequency of drinking coffee can have a significant effect on the whiteness of your teeth.

However, there are some general rules that can help you get started. This post will teach you about homemade remedies that will help you whiten your teeth just as any dentist could do.

The best DIY home remedies for whitening your teeth.

1. Get rid of stains with lemon juice.

Lemon juice is the key to getting rid of any blemishes you have on your teeth. It will whiten your teeth at an accelerated rate as well.

So for example, if you have a stain on your tooth, brushing with a lot of lemon juice for two to three minutes will lighten it within a matter of minutes.

2. Use white toothpaste. 

To get a whiter smile you have to use toothpaste that is made with powdered zinc. Not only will it help whiten your teeth, but it will also clean your teeth without irritating them.

3. Make a baking soda paste.

If you’re interested in whitening your teeth and have a tendency to use too much toothpaste, then a simple baking soda paste may be just the thing to get you a whiter smile.

All you need to do is make a paste of one tablespoon of baking soda and one tablespoon of liquid toothpaste. 

Mix well until the paste is a thick paste and then place a piece of plastic wrap over it and leave it in the fridge for at least a couple of hours. 

You can make a paste that is a little bit different every time depending on what you prefer, but the basic principles will always remain the same. Once the paste is firm enough to sit on the teeth, you can begin scrubbing. 

You should scrub the teeth for a good 10-15 seconds to remove any food or dental plaque that may have built up.

4. Use coconut oil or coconut butter.

In addition to using natural sugar substitutes, you can use coconut oil to whiten your teeth. According to some dentists, coconut oil has the highest amount of carotenoids (skin pigments) of any food on the planet.

Some research even suggests that it could help reverse tooth decay. For a natural and easy way to whiten your teeth, try applying coconut oil directly to your teeth at night before bed.

You can also put a couple of drops of coconut oil in a bowl of water and use it to brush your teeth. The coconut oil helps remove plaque and also removes stains from your teeth.

The goal of this article was to help you find ways to achieve whiter teeth without all of the harsh chemicals and chemicals that dentists use!

It is also important to understand how the products you use affect your teeth. The information from this article should be enough to get you started.
