There is nothing worse than the horrifying looks of yellow teeth. While this happens for many reasons ranging from too much caffeine and tea to taking a ton of antibiotics to your diet it can often be treated. However the cost for the treatment can be quiet costly and cost hundreds of dollars. Often times many dental plans won’t even cover this as it’s considered cosmetic and that leaves you with a huge bill. Why pay all that money when you have a host of ingredients that are right in your kitchen or can be purchased at your local grocery store for just a few dollars. Today we are going to show you the top ten home remedies for whitening your teeth.
Baking soda is one of the best ways to whiten your teeth when used carefully. Please keep in mind these suggestions should be used in moderation. Excessive use of baking soda can erode your teeth’s natural enamel which can leave you prone to other issues. Here are some simple easy ways to use baking soda to whiten your teeth. Try mixing a quarter teaspoon of baking soda with a little bit of toothpaste. Brush your teeth with the gritty mix and do this at least twice a week. Instead of warm water you can make the mixture with hydrogen peroxide, lemon juice, or even white vinegar. The picture below has some suggestions you can try that we will also mention in this post.
Orange peels are very effective at removing those dreaded yellow colors from your once pearly white teeth. You can instantly restore your teeth’s gorgeous looks by rubbing a fresh orange peel every night before going to sleep. The vitamin C and calcium will go to work right away and fight the chemicals that cause yellow discoloration. Try doing this for a few weeks and notice how much better your teeth look.
Another big supplier of vitamin C strawberries also will help your yellow teeth vanish if done properly. Try this concoction to get those pearly whites back. In your blender grind a few strawberries to make into a thick paste. Gently rub the paste onto your teeth. If you do this every day twice a day you will notice in just a few short weeks that your yellow teeth are gone. Just like magic. How is it that for money saving. It is much cheaper to buy a box of strawberries for a few dollars then spend hundreds on expensive whitening treatments. Try the other method below in the picture for more positive results.
Hydrogen Peroxide contains a mild bleaching ingredient which has the same results as those expensive whitening treatments. However pay extra attention when using Hydrogen Peroxide as overuse can irritate your gums and make your teeth extra sensitive. Try this method to make a hydrogen peroxide paste. Mix a paste of baking soda with some Hydrogen Peroxide. Then gently brush your teeth with it. Later on do a regular brushing of your teeth with your favorite regular toothpaste.
One of the best ways you can rid your teeth of yellow discoloration is using lemon peels. In fact it is suggested that gargling with lemon juice and scrubbing your teeth with a lemon peel is one of the most efficient ways to remove yellow marks on your teeth. (Source: AllTrendsMag)
