Color changes in your teeth might be minor and occur over time. It' s possible that some yellow color is unavoidable.
Your teeth might become yellower or darker as you become older. The yellowy dentin beneath the outer enamel becomes more evident as it fades away. The second layer of calcified tissue beneath the outer enamel layer is the dentin.
If you want to whiten your teeth, you have various options besides the traditional techniques. If you use at- home whitening treatments incorrectly or for an extended period of time, you risk damaging your teeth. You can be grinding down too much of your enamel, putting you at risk for sensitivity and cavities.
Here are some natural methods for whitening your teeth quickly.
Steer clear of unhealthy habits.
Avoiding smoking, excessive coffee and/or soda use, and chewing tobacco are the best ways to avoid stains. Drinking with a straw can drastically reduce tooth discoloration. Reduce your intake of junk food and replace it with crisp fruits and vegetables like apples, carrots, strawberries, and celery. Milk and milk- based products such as yoghurt, buttermilk, and other dairy products help to raise pH levels and remineralize tooth enamel, leaving you with a dazzling smile.
Brush and floss daily.
It' s critical that you take the necessary steps to improve your dental health. To remove stains and plaque more effectively than a traditional brush, use an over- the- counter whitening toothpaste plus an electric toothbrush. While brushing and flossing your teeth after each meal is recommended, doing so right away can cause more harm than benefit. The acid and sugar created just after eating temporarily affect the teeth' enamel, and brushing right after a meal could further weaken it. Brushing should be done after an hour or so. If not, brush your teeth 30 minutes before eating and then rinse your mouth afterward.
Rinsing your mouth with coconut, sesame, or tea tree oil will help remove tartar and plaque, which can cause discoloration, as well as prevent gum disease. Rinse your mouth for at least five minutes with two teaspoons of either of these oils before spitting it out. Using lukewarm water, rinse. For the following half- hour, don' t consume anything. To avoid dental problems, do this twice a day.
Make your own toothpaste
Because of its whitening and bleaching properties, holy basil, also known as tulsi, has a number of health benefits, including dental and oral care. Make your own natural toothpaste by crushing 15 to 20 fresh basil leaves for a beautiful smile. Brush your teeth with this paste every morning and every night before going to bed. Activated charcoal can also be used to remove plaque and microscopic particles that cause discoloration. Simply moisten your toothbrush and dip it into powdered activated charcoal to get started. Brush your teeth normally, paying special attention to the areas that are affected. Rinse your mouth two to three times. Do this two to three times a week for best results.
Brush your teeth in the morning with neem twigs instead of a toothbrush. Chewing on neem leaves can also help prevent tooth discoloration. You can also add a few drops of neem essential oil to your usual toothpaste to make it more effective. Once a week, mix equal parts apple cider vinegar and water and swirl it around your mouth for a few minutes. Teeth can also be whitened by rubbing them with banana or orange peels on a daily basis.
