A smile plays a major role in one's personality. If your smile is perfect, then it uplifts your confidence and increases your self-esteem. When you feel good and confident, then you tend to perform well in social gatherings. If your oral health is not in good condition, it can even hamper your self-confidence. So it is important to make sure that your oral health is in good condition. Having white teeth plays a major role in uplifting your oral health, and the good news is you even have choices to whiten your teeth using home remedies. That's right. So let's get started with it.
Hydrogen peroxide is a natural bleaching agent that also kills bacteria from your mouth. But unfortunately, there is no study to back the effects of rinsing or brushing with hydrogen peroxide. But it is also true that much commercial toothpaste has hydrogen peroxide in them. You can use hydrogen peroxide as a mouthwash before you brush your teeth but make sure that you only use a 1.5% solution to avoid the side effects.
Not many people are aware that baking soda has natural whitening properties, which is the primary reason it is being used in most commercial toothpaste. In addition to that, baking soda creates an alkaline environment in your mouth, which prevents bacteria from growing. It is also shown in the studies that toothpaste containing baking soda removed plaque from teeth more. You can buy baking soda online, or you can buy it at a grocery store.
This is one of the old methods of cleaning your teeth and making them white. This practice involves swishing oil around the mouth, which helps in cleansing the bacteria, which otherwise could have turned into plaque, making your teeth look yellow and stingy. There are many studies to back the fact that daily oil pulling can reduce bacteria from the mouth.
It is a universal truth that fruits and vegetables are good for our physical health, helping to keep our immune system in a good place. Similarly, eating plenty of fruits and vegetables can also be beneficial for your oral health as well. So, crunching raw fruits and vegetables can help in rubbing plaque away as you chew, keeping chewing healthy stuff.
Even though there are a number of home remedies to increase a few shades of your teeth but to get satisfying results, nothing could be better than professional teeth whitening at the dentist's chair. This treatment is comfortable and safest of all.
