How to Whiten Teeth With Natural Teeth Whitening Solutions

Find out how to get whiter and healthier teeth with natural teeth whitening solutions.

Yellow teeth are not attractive and many people aspire for a whiter smile. While modern treatments using peroxide can be expensive and too harsh for sensitive users; whitening teeth naturally can be an ideal solution. A two pronged approach that prevents staining while gently removing discoloring will whiten teeth in a gentle way.

Preventative Natural Teeth Whitening Solutions

Diet is key for healthy teeth so try to avoid foods high in sugar, sticky foods, paan and betel nut. These foods either stain teeth, damage tooth enamel or cause tooth decay. Liquids that stain teeth include coffee, tea and red wine so avoid or rinse the mouth after consumption. Good foods that can create brighter teeth include hard and crunchy vegetables such as carrots as they have an abrasive reaction.

Teeth Whitening Tricks

There are some relatively unknown methods that can make teeth whiter. Here are some examples:

  • Gargle with a mixture of rock salt and water every night before going off to sleep.
  • Rub orange peel onto teeth
  • Mix a little olive oil, toothpaste and baking soda and brush teeth gently
  • Chew on Neem wood sticks (a common method in India)

Naturally Whiten Teeth at Home

Some methods of whitening teeth should be used with caution as they can strip the calcium in tooth enamel and may lead to sensitive teeth. However occasional use can be effective in removing unsightly stains. Some of the natural solutions include:

  • Lemon juice
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Baking soda and salt
  • Strawberries
  • Wood ash

Baking soda is possibly the most popular remedy and is anti-bacterial helping fight plaque while reducing acids that may harm tooth enamel. Generally the chosen treatment is brushed onto teeth like toothpaste. Be sure to rinse the mouth out carefully after use. Sage leaves are a gentle alternative and can be used by directly rubbing onto teeth. 

The best way to keep teeth looking their best is to avoid foods and liquids that stain them and brush them regularly. Be sure to wash the mouth after consuming sticky or sugary foods as part of a preventative approach to getting healthy teeth.

Homemade teeth whitening is easy with natural methods such as baking soda though these options are unlikely to whiten teeth fast like conventional treatments offered by a dentist. While pursuing white teeth be sure to maintain good oral health and don't use treatments more than twice a week to preserve the health of tooth enamel.
