Are your teeth dull or yellow? Would you like a dazzling white smile but are hesitant to use commercial whitening products full of chemicals and unknown substances? The good news is you don’t have to. There are plenty of DIY teeth whitening alternatives guaranteed to whiten your teeth safely at home.
Here are some of the most effective solutions.
1.Hydrogen Peroxide and Baking Soda
In order to successfully use these two ingredients, you need to brush your teeth with baking soda and then swish hydrogen peroxide afterwards just before rinsing your mouth. Baking soda is a mild abrasive which removes stains from teeth while the peroxide is an effective bleaching agent.
It is important that you don’t overuse this formula as it can weaken the enamel through excessive corrosion.
Also worth noting is that baking soda and hydrogen peroxide collectively possess anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties which make them an excellent combination for oral health.
This golden yellow spice is rich in curcumin – a powerful antioxidant – which, when rubbed against teeth, eliminates stains and other forms of discolouration. For the best results, mix ¼ teaspoon turmeric powder with 1/8 teaspoon of cold pressed coconut oil to form a paste and brush your teeth. Let the paste sit for about 5 minutes and then rinse thoroughly.
3.Apple Cider Vinegar
Brushing your teeth with undistilled natural apple cider vinegar might leave a slightly sour taste in your mouth but it will also eliminate unsightly stains, yellowness and other discolourations from teeth.
Caution: since this substance is acidic it does erode some enamel when used. Use it less often to avoid damaging teeth. You can also add some water to the ACV to dilute its acidic content to minimize dental damage.
While these solutions are 100% safe and effective they generally tend to provide short-term results. The results also tend to be delayed. If you’re looking for a product that guarantees much faster results (overnight success), is safe, cost-effective and guarantees long-term results consider using Gogo Smile teeth whitening.
