Handy Home Teeth Whitening Ideas

Author : Andrew Goligher


There is no image-killer as potent as stained teeth. Most people who find themselves in this predicament, often find it difficult to smile or even speak in front of others. However, one does not have to endure such a condition because there are several home teeth whitening ideas that can help alleviate the problem.

Know the cause: Strong teeth rarely get stained while on the other hand, weak teeth that are already damaged get stained easily. The first step is usually to find out the cause and then correct it. Excessive consumption of tobacco, sugar and acidic foods or drinks are major causes. Drinking water containing high levels of fluoride when the teeth are still being formed is another cause. Such foods and drinks should therefore be taken in moderation or done away with altogether especially before going to sleep.

Mouth Hygiene: It is good to practice good hygiene and keep the mouth clean at all times. Using mild toothpaste and a brush of medium strength prevents further abrasion of the enamel.

Salt: It is a good idea to gargle a salt solution as this is a safe way of killing harmful bacteria that live in the mouth.

Strawberry: Strawberry fruit is great and perfectly safe when used as a home teeth whitening remedy. Rubbing the fruit directly on the teeth or making a paste then rubbing it on will work just fine.

Walnut tree: Rubbing the bark of this tree on stained teeth can effectively whiten them. It kills bacteria and cleans the teeth.

Hydrogen peroxide: A solution made of a few drops of hydrogen peroxide and water kills bacteria and whitens teeth because it is a strong oxidizer. Irritation of the gums may, however, occur.

Calcium: Eating Calcium-rich foods is a must if you wish to maintain a sparkling smile. Calcium fortifies teeth and makes them healthy. This prevents them from getting stained easily and is usually the first line of defense.

Water: Drinking plenty of water is a simple way of cleaning the mouth. It removes loose food that may otherwise harbor harmful bacteria if left to stick on teeth for long.

All these are safe methods to use at home. Although using others like Lemon and Baking soda are also effective, they are best avoided. The acid in Lemon juice is harsh on the teeth and baking soda is abrasive. The key thing to remember is that when teeth begin to get stained, they are already damaged and great care should be taken when applying any home teeth whitening ideas.
