Natural Teeth Whitening: What's the Best Way?

Everyone wants to have a bright and beautiful smile, but keeping your teeth vibrant is much easier said than done. Over the years, everything from your daily hygiene habits to your diet will impact the appearance of your teeth. Here are a few simple ways to naturally get teeth whitening without damaging your gums or enamel.

Activated Charcoal

This type of charcoal can be purchased at most supplement stores, and it might help you brighten your teeth by multiple shades in just a few weeks. Brushing with activated charcoal removes bacteria from your teeth and alters the pH balance of your mouth. Even though the charcoal turns your entire mouth black for a few minutes, it can be beneficial in the long run. Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding should speak with a doctor before using any products that contain activated charcoal.

Hydrogen Peroxide and Baking Soda

Combining these two everyday products will create a safe, natural, and effective teeth whitener. In addition to brightening your smile, cleaning your mouth with hydrogen peroxide and baking soda might also reduce your risk of gingivitis and tooth decay. Five different clinical studies carried out over the last 10 years found that brushing with this combination of ingredients is one of the most effective ways to remove plaque from the mouth. Plaque is the sticky substance that clings to the outside of your teeth and causes discoloration.

Oil Pulling

Cultures from around the world have been carrying out this practice for thousands of years to improve the appearance and strength of their teeth. Almost any type of oil can be used as for oil pulling, but most experts agree that coconut oil is the best option. Rinsing your mouth with a small amount of coconut oil at the start of the day is going to destroy unhealthy bacteria and foster the growth of healthy flora. Once you have swished the oil around your mouth for about 10 minutes, you should spit it out and rinse with fresh water.

Detergent Foods

Eating detergent foods is another simple way to clean your teeth and improve your oral health. A detergent food is essentially any piece of produce that physically dislodges plaque from your teeth while it is being eaten. Some of the most popular detergent foods include celery, carrots, cucumbers, lettuce, and pears. In order to maximize the impact that those foods have on your teeth, you should eat them raw or lightly cooked.

Unfortunately, some intrinsic stains can’t be removed with home remedies and over-the-counter whitening products. In order to conceal those stains, you will need to speak with a dentist about professional treatment options such as crowns, veneers, or implants.
