If you’ve ever felt embarrassed by your smile, and keep your mouth tight-lipped, have no fear! We have the solutions you are looking for, for a brighter and happier smile.
Here are a few helpful tips and ideas that you can use to have a great smile:
Baking soda is the best ingredient to start whitening your teeth. This doesn’t mean that you need to crack open a box of baking soda and start brushing your teeth with it (if you really want to, you can).
Baking soda has natural whitening properties in it making it a reaccruing property in for many commercial toothpastes.
For instance, one study found that toothpastes containing baking soda were significantly more effective at removing yellow stains from teeth than standard toothpastes without baking soda. In other words, the higher the concentration of baking soda, the greater the effect.
Fruits and Veggies
Just like your overall health, did you know that certain fruits and vegetables can help your teeth? Well, it’s true! As if you needed more reasons to eat better, add brightening your smile to that list.
For instance, strawberries may help with exfoliating your teeth helping them to appear whiter. For this reason, strawberries are a favorite method of whitening teeth for celebrities. However, they are unlikely to penetrate the stains on your teeth which is needed for lasting whiting.Please note that if you decide to give this method a try, limit its use to a few times per week.
Don’t you love the sweetness of a fresh pineapple? Not only is pineapple a delicious treat and controversial pizza topping, but it can help with your smile. A study found that a toothpaste containing bromelain, an enzyme found in pineapples, was significantly more efficient at removing tooth stains than standard toothpaste.
