Coffee, tea, nicotine or sugar will not affect only your health, but also it will lead to premature tooth decay. If the effects are already visible on your teeth, we have good news for you: the effect can be reversible. Before calling for professional tooth whitening methods that can affect the outer layer of your teeth, nature offers you some cheap and handy solutions to get that bright smile you are craving for.
Baking soda is the best remedy you can use for teeth whitening and not only. This ingredient takes care of your gum health, preventing periodontitis.
How to proceed?
Sprinkle baking soda over your toothbrush or dip your toothbrush in baking soda powder. Be careful to apply a small amount of powder not to get a rough brush afterwards. And, now, start brushing your teeth like usual. In addition to effectively removing the bacterial plaque that can turn into tartar, baking soda will whiten your teeth quickly, if it is used at least twice a month.
The next step you should take to whiten your teeth is to rinse your mouth with a mixture made of water and the juice from half a lemon.
Do not use this homemade mouthwash too often or after you have brushed your teeth with baking soda, becasue the high content of acid can damage the outer layer of enamel.
