However, some people cannot go for it due to yellow teeth that may be criticised by others. To have white teeth, you may have various options among which the cleaning by a doctor is the most common. You can always consult a dentist and get your teeth cleaned. But this will surely make a hole in your pocket. The easier way is to avoid certain things and also use some home remedies to whiten teeth naturally. In these remedies, some of the common items are used which are usually found in the home only and hence they cannot prove much costly to the user.
The home remedies are:
Brush after eating and drinking: The best way to maintain white teeth is to brush your teeth after every meal that is thrice a day and also after drinking coffee or tea. Also one of the main reasons for getting yellow teeth is smoking that is due to nicotine deposition on your teeth and especially in the inner sides of the teeth. Thus you have to brush and floss your teeth on a regular basis and also stop smoking or consuming tobacco products. Regular brushing can also help to have strong gums and better oral health.
Using baking soda and hydrogen peroxide: Hydrogen peroxide has anti-bacterial properties which will keep your teeth and gum healthy. All you have to do is make a paste with a few drops of water, hydrogen peroxide, and baking soda. Apply this paste and keep it on your teeth for a minute and rinse your mouth properly. This can act as a homemade paste that will make your teeth white and stronger.
Oil Pulling: Coconut oil can be used to clean and whiten your teeth since it is one of the natural whiteners. The teeth not only become whiter but they also become stronger by the use of coconut oil. Put some coconut oil in your mouth and swish it inside for around five to ten minutes. You can also apply it to your teeth and gums and use your fingertips to rub it slowly. They rinse your mouth with cold water. Coconut oil has anti-microbial properties which can help both the teeth and the gum.
Apple Cider Vinegar: Apple Cider Vinegar is a natural antibiotic and can be used as teeth cleaner and a gum cleaner. It removes the stains from your teeth which are caused due to caffeine or nicotine. The Apple cider vinegar consists of ingredients like acetic acid, potassium, magnesium, and enzymes that kill the bacteria. The magnesium and potassium also strengthen the enamel of the teeth. The growth of the helpful probiotic bacteria is also fostered due to ACV. Brush with ACV and then brush again with regular paste. Do not keep it in your mouth for too long. Rinse properly with cold water.
