Let's look at some of the DIY Tips for the Teeth Whitening at Home:
DIY Tips for Teeth Whitening
Yes, the most vital part before applying any DIY products to your teeth, includes brushing your teeth routinely. Include fluoride in your toothpaste for stronger and cavity-free teeth.
Baking Soda Hack:
Applying a little baking soda to your toothpaste can boost whiter teeth.
Baking soda works to help clean your teeth. According to the Journal of Clinical Dentistry (June 2008), brushing teeth with baking soda products was proven more effective than using products without baking soda.
The use of baking soda in your tooth paste combined with fluoride has the potential to neutralize the acid in dental plaque (biofilm). It can also help counteract high-sugar diets (which causes an increase in cavities and inflammation in the body) by rapidly neutralizing biofilm-generated acid, especially in people with dry mouth or less saliva flow.
Making Dietary Changes:
Dietary changes will create a healthy body, reduce cavities and eliminate those nasty stains on your teeth that some foods and beverages can cause.
Eliminate soda which causes damage to your teeth and also creates inflammation in your body.
Coffee, tea, various red sauces, red wine and similar, can leave ugly stains on your teeth.
Acid From Lemons & Limes, etc:
Fruit peel is a better option to help reduce erosion of your enamel. You can use lime or lemon peel vs. biting into lemons or limes.
Apple Cider Vinegar:
This is considered an organic or holistic remedy. Apple cider vinegar has a lot of benefits.
It is known to reduce weight, kill harmful bacteria, and promote overall health. Dilute apple cider with water has been known to create improved health.
Apple cider vinegar works to remove the layers of plaque buildup on the enamel of your teeth.
When plaque accumulates on your teeth, it makes your teeth look more yellow.
Apple cider vinegar breaks down this layer of plaque and gives your teeth a shinier appearance. In addition, apple cider vinegar also helps to kill the bacteria in your mouth that can cause bad breath and/or cavities.
Turmeric is a health agent, comprising a lot of benefits for skin and reduces inflammation. Turmeric is anti-inflammatory and an anti-oxidant that helps reduce various signs of the systemic diseases.
Some studies suggest that you can potentially use turmeric to reduce teeth plaque and plaque/tartar buildup.
A study by the Department of Periodontology at the Bharati Vidyapeeth Deemed University concluded that turmeric mouthwash effectively reduces plaque when used in conjunction with proper brushing and flossing techniques.
Coconut oil is high in saturated fats and medium-chain triglycerides (MCT).
Some studies have shown that oil pulling with the use of coconut oil can provide improved oral health. The main benefit of oil pulling tis to reduce the amount of harmful bacteria in your mouth.
There are hundreds of different types of bacteria in your mouth. While many of them are friendly, others are not.
The bacteria in your mouth create a biofilm on your teeth, a thin layer known as plaque. When plaque remains on your teeth more than a few minutes it can cause teeth stains, and gingivitis which leads to gum disease and tooth loss.
Plaque left for hours on your teeth can also cause bad breath and cavities.
Oil pulling can be a simple technique to remove the plaque which causes the above mentioned challenges.
Use Olive Oil or another very popular oil used is, "Coconut Oil." Use a tablespoon of oil to swish around your mouth for about twenty minutes. During twenty-minutes of swishing the bacteria is swept away, dissolving in the liquid oil.
I know, twenty minutes of swishing can be a long time!
