Photo/before and after.
Changes in the color of your teeth may be subtle and happen gradually. Some yellow color may be inevitable.Teeth can look more yellow or darken especially as you age. As the outer enamel wears away, the yellowy dentin underneath becomes more visible. Dentin is the second layer of calcified tissue beneath the outside enamel layer.
While tooth-whitening kits are readily available at most pharmacies, many natural remedies can help remove stains and protect tooth enamel.There are plenty of products one can choose from to whiten their teeth. But most of these products contain bleach that is used as a whitening agent, which is not good.
First things first, brush your teeth regularly:
Let’s get this out of the way immediately, brushing your teeth daily is the most important thing to do to keep your teeth shining bright. If you have not been brushing regularly, be sure to start doing it right now. If you have been brushing your teeth daily and your teeth still turn out to be yellowish, try brushing more often, especially after having meals or drinks, which can lead to yellow teeth.
However, don’t brush immediately after taking acidic foods or drinks because it might lead to erosion.
Brush With Baking Soda
Baking soda has natural whitening properties, which is why it’s a popular ingredient in commercial toothpast.It is a mild abrasive that can help scrub away surface stains on teeth. Additionally, baking soda creates an alkaline environment in your mouth, which prevents bacteria from growing. This is not a remedy that will whiten your teeth overnight, but you should notice a difference in the appearance of your teeth over time.
Eat fruits and vegetables
A diet high in fruits and vegetables is great for your overall health and teeth. Crunchy, raw fruits and vegetables can help rub the plaque away as you chew them. Though this is no substitute for brushing your teeth. Strawberries and pineapple are two fruits that have been claimed to whiten your teeth.
