What you can use to whiten teeth at home

Healthy teeth and a radiant smile are the hallmarks of celebrities worldwide. To maintain oral health, you don't have to spend money on expensive professional products; the main thing is to visit the dentist regularly and take proper care of your teeth.

You can whiten your teeth even at home. The Everygirl magazine told us about effective natural ingredients.

Baking soda

Selin Kilic, a dentist at Vera Clinic, recommends using baking soda to whiten enamel quickly and efficiently.

"Soda acts as a mild abrasive. It can lighten some stains on the teeth and remove plaque," said Dr. Kilic.

She suggests mixing baking soda and water in a 1:1 ratio to form a paste-like mixture. Dip your toothbrush into the baking soda mixture and gently brush your teeth, thoroughly coating each tooth with the paste. Rinse your mouth thoroughly afterward.

Apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar contains natural acids that can also break down plaque and whiten enamel.

"The pH level of apple cider vinegar will effectively get rid of plaque. Simply mix a small amount of apple cider vinegar with water, apply the product on a sponge or napkin, and place it on your teeth for about one minute," advises Dr. Kilic.

Coconut oil

Carrie Goldstein, dentist and founder of the Goldstein Dental Center, suggests trying one of the Ayurvedic practices. The idea is that you can whiten your teeth by holding a spoonful of coconut oil in your mouth. Experts say that coconut oil will cleanse the teeth and gums of bacteria and contribute to the overall whitening of the enamel.

Fruits and vegetables

Fruits and vegetables not only provide the body with vitamins, minerals, and fiber, but they also help whiten teeth. "The combination of D-limonene and citric acid found in the peel of some citrus fruits is great for whitening teeth," Dr. Kilic confirmed.

You can gently rub the peel of an orange or lemon on your teeth for a few minutes. Afterward, be sure to rinse your mouth thoroughly and brush your teeth. Although a diet high in fruits and vegetables is no substitute for good hygiene, Dr. Kilic confirmed that apples, celery, and carrots do help clean teeth.

Earlier, OBOZREVATEL told you that the color of tooth enamel is often genetically determined, but in some cases, it depends on our lifestyle and can change.
