There are lots of methods and procedures for whitening teeth. Some may be costlier than the others while others are relatively cheap. Now this article is here to give you natural home remedies to whitening teeth. The materials needed are easily gotten so you don’t have to worry about spending money more than usual.

With this in mind, you can do these on a general basis- Try Oil Pulling, brush with baking soda, use hydrogen peroxide, use apple cider vinegar, use fruits and vegetables and finally just prevent those tooth stains before they even happen.

Ways To Naturally Whiten Your Teeth

1. Brush after Drinking or Eating:

The best way to whiten your teeth naturally, although not always the easiest, is to simply brush your teeth after eating or drinking anything. Although effective, this takes a lot of persistence and can even be kind of difficult depending on where you are at the time of eating.

2. Baking Soda and Hydrogen Peroxide:

Hydrogen peroxide is an antibacterial agent and works well as a total mouth and gum cleaner and keeps the mouth free of germs. A good oral mouth rinse can be made using hydrogen peroxide; all you have to do is to use half water and half hydrogen peroxide, swish around in your mouth for about one minute, and then rinse. Another way to use this product is to mix a small amount of hydrogen peroxide with a small amount of baking soda in order to make a paste that helps remove more plaque from teeth.

3. Use Apple Cider Vinegar:

It makes sense that apple cider vinegar (ACV), which effectively works as a natural antibiotic and teeth/gum cleanser would also be able to remove stubborn stains on the teeth. ACV is especially helpful for removing stains due to common culprits like coffee and nicotine (smoking). It contains compounds including acetic acid, potassium, magnesium, probiotics and enzymes, which kill germs (dangerous bacteria) and at the same time foster the growth of beneficial probiotic bacteria. Since its naturally acidic, it helps break down plaque or other substances stuck to the teeth. The pH of apple cider vinegar can remove stains from your teeth, which helps naturally whiten your teeth.

4. Lemon or Orange Peels:

Similarly to apple cider vinegar, using citrus fruits including lemon and/or orange peels, or lemon essential oil, which contain beneficial acids also does the trick for whitening teeth. The high acid content of these fruits can also eventually wear away the enamel on the teeth if used too aggressively. Like with ACV, if you use lemon or orange peel on your teeth always rinse your mouth afterward to be on the safe side.

5. Activated charcoal:

An absorbing product used to trap toxins inside the body, can help whiten your teeth by absorbing plaque and microscopic tidbits that cause staining. To whiten your teeth naturally with charcoal, wet a toothbrush and dip into powdered activated charcoal. Brush teeth as normal, paying special attention to areas showing the most staining. Sip a bit of water, swish through mouth thoroughly and spit. Rinse well, until spit is clear. For best results, brush your teeth with activated charcoal two to three times per week, but avoid using it if you have crowns, caps or porcelain veneers.
