teeth whitening


A confident smile and snowy-white teeth are all that we desire! Hence, we always think about how to keep our pearly whites dazzle bright which has become discolored.  But stay calm as we’ve chalked out a list of teeth whitening tips just for you! Give these little homely secrets a try!

  • Apple Cider Vinegar

Dilute apple cider vinegar with water and wash your mouth with this solution. After that rinse with normal water 2-3 times. With this remedy, keep your bacteria at bay. Remember; don’t use it too often as it can erode your teeth enamel. 

  • Baking Soda

Witness magic with this age-old home remedy! Take a teaspoon of baking soda with 2-3 teaspoons of water. Scrub your teeth slowly with this mixture and wait to witness its result! Never overdo it.

  • Oil Pulling

This is also a traditional procedure. Just, put 1 spoon of coconut oil in your mouth. Then gargle for 10-15 minutes. You can even put some drops of coconut oil on your toothbrush and brush with it gently. You can opt for Sunflower and Sesame oil and still get outstanding results.

  • Charcoal Brush

Do you know that charcoal powder whitens your teeth and prevents plaque build-up? Take a wet toothbrush and dip it into a mix of charcoal powder. Then brush with that mixture for at least 2 minutes. Do not drop any of it on your clothes since it causes stains. 

  • Lemon or Orange Peels

Do you know fruits such as oranges and lemons also aid to whiten your teeth? Rub the peels of orange and lemon on your teeth. Then rinse your mouth with normal water 2-3 times after 5 minutes of using orange/lemon.

  • Turmeric Powder:

Put one teaspoon of turmeric and add little water to it to create a paste. Take that paste on your toothbrush and brush for at least 2 minutes. Turmeric powder has wonderful medicinal properties and eliminates stains. 

  • Tooth-Whitening Kits

Currently, home tooth-whitening kits are in demand. Few kits provide you a peroxide-based gel. You just gotta apply that (with a brush) on your teeth surface. In other kits, the gel is given on a tray that sticks to the teeth. You just gotta wear the tray every day (for 30-45 minutes) for a week or more.

  • Home Whitening Strips

Tooth-whitening strips are very thin, virtually invisible, and are coated with a peroxide-based whitening gel. You gotta wear them for some minutes daily for 2-3 weeks. 

  • Whitening Toothpaste and Rinses

There are also over-the-counter toothpaste, gels, and rinses that help eliminate some surface stains. So you can also try all these out!

However, remember all these remedies cannot whiten your teeth overnight. It always takes some time.

How to prevent Tooth-stains?

  •  Stay away from foods like red wine, coffee, tea, soft drinks, and dark-colored sauces. They are known villains of tooth staining. 
  • Limit your sugar intake.
  • Add calcium to your diet.
  • Quit smoking.
  • Practice healthy oral habits.
