Everyone wants a pearly white Hollywood smile. However, some of us don’t have a sparkling white smile..which is normal. There are many factors behind the color of our enamel. Factors include genetics, age, environmental factors, oral hygiene and nutrition play a part in the shade of our teeth.
There are many whitening treatment options offered in dental offices and over the counter, but if you’re looking for a natural approach here are 3 natural ways to achieve a whiter smile:
Brushing After Eating or Drinking
The simplest way to natural whiten you smile is just by brushing your teeth..that is after every meal or drink you consume. This can be a hard task, because it means that you must always have an oral hygiene kit on hand. Food and drinks can in fact stain your teeth, so if you’re looking for a simple approach to the smile you want this method may be for you.
Baking Soda and Hydrogen Peroxide
Mix a small amount of hydrogen peroxide with a small amount of baking soda to make a paste. Brush your teeth as usual, making sure you brush those back teeth too. Hydrogen peroxide is an anti-bacterial agent and works great as a total mouth and gum cleaner and keeps the mouth free of germs.
A method that recently become very popular, oil pulling consist of using a oil (almost like a mouth wash) to pull toxin out of the mouth. For more information on oil pulling click here to check out one of our older blogs.
