Home remedies for white teeth
Like all other problems from how to lose weight to how to glow on your date, even the problem of yellow teeth has a solution right from grandma’s kitchen. There are a number of things you can use like baking soda or strawberries which you can mash and rub gently on your teeth. Another solution from the kitchen diaries involves the use of lemon. The bleaching and basic properties of lemon can help immensely to get rid of the yellow unwanted tinge. Other remedies involve oranges, salt and hydrogen peroxide which can be easily found at home and have no side effects on the health of the individual.
Teeth whitening products
Apart from home remedies, there are various teeth whitening products available for an individual to choose from. There are whitening toothpastes made by different companies like Crest 3D white. Apart from containing agents that remove surface stains and are present in all toothpastes, whitening toothpastes contain gentle polishing and additional chemical agents for much more effective results as compared to normal toothpastes. Other whitening products include whitening stripes and over the counter whitening gels. Whitening gels are basically peroxide based gels and are applied on the teeth with a brush. The amount of gel required for best results varies from one company’s gel to another and also depends on the strength of the peroxide in the gel.
Whitening strips are thin virtually invisible strips coated with peroxide. The directions for use generally state that the individual should use the strips twice daily for best results. Another new whitening product that has gained immense popularity is the whitening rinse. These are kind of mouthwashes that freshen your breath and also provide for oral hygiene. They contain hydrogen peroxide which helps to whiten teeth. These are some of the products that you can use. But one thing should be kept in mind; you should always follow the instructions while using these products because otherwise it might be detrimental to your health as they contain serious chemicals.
Dentist visits are still important
Thus, these are some of the ways to a healthy mouth and white teeth. But one thing should be kept in mind is that while you can use whitening products or home remedies, regular visits to your dentist are also important for a healthy mouth.
