Flattered Woman Smiling

Whiter teeth, is something that many people in our cosmetically driven world desire today. Loads of money is spent on teeth whitening products every year-that’s a good chunk of money just to achieve a different shade of teeth. Few are lucky enough to be able to afford to visit the dentist regularly and have stains removed and their teeth whitened. Certain food and drinks directly stain the enamel, these include Wines, Tea, Acid based drinks and foods, sweets etc.

“You have a beautiful smile” is something that every woman wants to hear. Fortunately, there are a number of treatments and techniques that can give you the whiter and brighter smile that you desire.
Rather than using chemicals to get your pearly white smile back, try this homemade teeth whitener recipe instead-

1. Baking Soda and Lemon Juice Paste
Ingredients
1 tsp baking soda
3 drops lemon juice

Mix the baking soda with fresh lemon juice (or water) to make a paste. Wipe your teeth and any extra saliva off of them with a paper towel. Put a good amount of paste onto your toothbrush and apply. Leave the paste on for 1 minute, then rinse, so as to avoid the acid effecting enamel. If you are using just water you can leave it on for up to 3 minutes.

2. Strawberry, Salt and Baking Soda Scrub

1 large strawberries
A pinch of seat salt
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda (optional)

Simply crush 1 strawberry into a pulp and mix in ½ teaspoon of baking soda or salt. Spread this mixture onto your teeth using a damp toothbrush and leave it there for at least 5 minutes. When the time is up, wet your toothbrush and gently clean each tooth before rinsing the solution away.

With these few and simple tricks you can whiten your teeth and move on to smiling for your selfies. Cheese!

I LOVE that you have this information on your site! I have been using the lemon juice and baking soda combo for a while now, but I am really careful about how often. Citrus acid can eat through your enamel quickly, leaving your teeth super sensitive and can even make them appear translucent…which totally freaks me out. Using these pastes, with lemon or strawberry, should be limited to ONCE A WEEK. My solution to this concern has been to switch to another whitening trick :) It reverts me back to the AWESOME attributes of organic coconut oil, which I commented about on another post :) I take about a tablespoon of extra virgin (not sure that part matters) and let it melt in my mouth and continue to swish it (like mouthwash) for at least 2-3 minutes. Not only does it whiten, but it also neutralizes bad breath AND improves gum health! BONUS :) Some say you should spit it out after doing this because it pulls out all the bacteria from your mouth into the oil, but I know a lot of people who swallow it anyway, so I suppose that is an issue of preference. In any case, I do this daily and after ONE week, there was a noticeable difference. Definitely something worth trying ;)
