Changes in the color of your teeth may be subtle and happen gradually. Some yellow color may be inevitable. Teeth can look more yellow or darken especially as you age. As the outer enamel wears away, the yellowy dentin underneath becomes more visible. Dentin is the second layer of calcified tissue beneath the outside enamel layer. If you’re looking to whiten your teeth, you do have some alternatives to conventional methods.
Using coconut oil
Use a teaspoon of coconut oil to rinse around your mouth for around 15 minutes. Keep the coconut oil in your mouth at all times and spit it out straight away, once you have finished swishing it around. There is a very little risk by using this method to whiten teeth.
Baking soda and hydrogen peroxide
Using a paste made of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide is said to remove plaque buildup and bacteria to get rid of stains. Mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda with 2 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide to make a paste. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with water after brushing with this paste. You can also use the same ratio of ingredients to make a mouthwash. Or, you can try baking soda with water.
Brush teeth daily
Brushing is a compulsory oral hygienic regime that everyone needs to follow. Brush frequently after foods that tend to make your tooth yellow. It is a necessary habit to at least brush teeth twice a day that too in a proper manner, covering all portions.
Using Whitening Strips
Natural whitening strips do not contain peroxide or chemicals. Instead, they use botanicals and essential oils to lift stains gradually. As you apply whitening strips to your top and bottom teeth, the gel firmly presses against them. It is held in place by the plastic strips to prevent slipping. You’ll leave the strips on for up to 30 minutes (depending on the brand). During this time, the gel penetrates your tooth enamel, gradually lifting stains and brightening your smile.
