How can I whiten my teeth naturally?

Teeth whitening is a popular and regular used method in dentists offices. 

Additionally, there are also many natural teeth whitening solutions available, such as changes to your diet, as well as using baking soda or charcoal. 

You can also choose to get your teeth professionally whitened or alternatively, you can whiten your teeth at home.

Teeth whitening can be done at home in a number of ways, including buying teeth whitening toothpaste and teeth whitening strips. 

However, many people opt to use natural ingredients to whiten teeth, as these can be cheaper to purchase and also be less harsh on sensitive teeth, as there are less chemicals involved.

 

Dietary Changes

This is one of the easiest ways you can whiten your teeth naturally, and keep them white. 

The first piece of advice would be to limit your intake of sugary sodas and drinks like coffee, soda, and red wine, as these liquids play a big part in staining and discoloring the tooth.

In terms of habits, quitting smoking or limiting smoking will also help in whitening teeth since smoking also damages the teeth and causes them to discolor.

 

Oil Pulling

This method is cost effective and popular. 

However, there is no conclusive research on this. 

Some dentists recommend washing your mouth with oil to remove dirt and bacteria, and this can also help with preventing cavities and teeth whitening. 

The method is to rinse the mouth with oil for one minute after brushing your teeth, then spit out and rinse again with water. 

Coconut oil, sunflower oil and sesame oil are the most suitable to try this method with.

 

Baking Soda

Baking soda is known to be able to polish away stains on our teeth’s surfaces

So if you are having a problem with discoloration or stains, this is a good natural method to try at home.

Simply put some baking soda on your toothbrush and start brushing gently. If done a few times a week, this method is said to help to whiten the teeth and also helps to fight bacteria.

However, once again, there is little research available on the effectiveness of this method. 

In conclusion, these methods can be very beneficial in whitening your teeth naturally.

But before trying them, it is always best to discuss this with your trusted dentist, to make sure these are the methods that are right for you.
