For most of us, having perfectly whitened teeth like our favorite celebs is just not possible…well not if you don’t want to pay top dollar for laser treatment that is. If you’re like me, I tend not to think before I start indulging on my go-to snacks.
When we’re sipping on a glass of wine or whipping up some tea to help fight a cold, we don’t realize how much damage these products are doing to our ivories. Products such as ordinary black tea and even sports drinks can damage your teeth making them less desirable.
To help you still be able to enjoy that glass of wine, we’ve gathered a few how-to-natural teeth whitening tricks to add to your diet:
Strawberries are a natural bleaching agents. They contain both an astringent and vitamin C, which aids in the removal of surface stains while the vitamin C helps clear away plaque.
Apples are a natural toothbrush. Chewing an apple removes excess food and bacteria from your mouth while scrubbing away surface stains.
Raisins are a natural mouthwash. They help keep your teeth white by inducing saliva production.
If you still aren’t seeing results, try Dr. Oz’s Teeth Whitening Home Remedy! All you need is baking soda and a lemon.
Here’s what you do:
Mix a little bit of baking soda with the juice of a freshly squeezed lemon in a small bowl. The mixture should bubble slightly.
Use a cotton swab and wipe saliva and excess plaque from your teeth before applying the mixture. Leave the mixture on for about a minute before removing. Do not leave on more than a minute; the acid with erode teeth enamel.
