We all want white sparkling teeth, just like most movie stars, but let face it; who has the money to buy those expensive systems advertised on TV?
Worse yet; who can afford visiting the dentist for one of those laser session that con cost hundreds and hundreds on dollars?
Home remedies for whitening teeth are a great alternative for fast, safe and inexpensive whitening.
Make a paste by mixing
– 2 teaspoons of hydrogen peroxide
– 2 teaspoons of baking soda.
Place the mixture in a small bowl. The thickness of the paste should be consistent as the typical thickness of toothpaste. For a better taste, add a bit of mint or just a scoop of toothpaste can be combined with the home-made paste for whitening.
Apply with a toothbrush and leave the mixture on your teeth for at a couple of minutes. You should avoid swallowing the paste. If this happens, just drink lots of water. Use only once or twice a week.
Brush your teeth really with regular tooth paste. Then pour some extra virgin olive oil on a white wash cloth and scrub for incredible results. Make a paste of few drops of lemon juice and a pinch of common baking soda. Apply this and massage gently as if brushing. This helps to remove the stain.
Rub your teeth with the inside of orange peels. Orange peels have a mild compound that has been shown to whiten teeth which removes stains from teeth without damaging the enamel.
Important: While hydrogen peroxide is safe to gargle and to use as a home remedy to whitening teeth, one should be extra careful not to swallow any of it as it poses a health hazard to the body. For pregnant or lactating women, any accidental swallowing of the whitening gel could be potentially harmful to the unborn fetus.
When using hydrogen peroxide, you may also experience gum irritation. This is perfectly normal and natural however you should avoid using it if you have any sores inside your mouth.
