Having looked at the many different ways of whitening my teeth naturally and with specific treatments I was amazed at the variety of Natural treatments including:
Using 1 tablespoon of coconut oil swill round the mouth for 15-20 mins. This helps to reduce the bacteria in the mouth that causes plaque and helps to whiten the teeth
Not sure about you but I can think of better things to do for 20 mins in the morning!!!!!
Dip your toothbrush in the baking soda and brush your teeth as normal. This does have natural whitening properties and is mildly abrasive so can help scrub away surface stains on teeth.
This is not a quick fix and not sure it will make your breath smell nice!!!!
Apple cider vinegar
Acetic acid is the main active ingredient in apple cider vinegar and it will kill bacteria that causes plaque. It will whiten your teeth but as it is so acidic it is likely to attack the enamel and cause softening.
Personally, I want my teeth hard and firm!!!!
Mix together strawberries and baking soda into a paste and brush teeth as normal. The malic acid in the strawberries is said to help whiten the teeth and the baking soda with buff away stains but there is no scientific evidence for this.
I prefer my strawberries in a glass of chilled champagne!!!!!
There are of course non-natural treatments that can be given from a dentist, that are expensive and can be painful. NO thank you!!
Home whitening remedies from chemists and internet are available and although cheaper can be painful, cause sensitive teeth and be difficult to use. NOT for me
I however found this amazing whitening toothpaste that has no bad ingredients, looks after your teeth and whitens them, all for a fraction of the cost and with no pain or damage to my teeth.
I drink coffee and red wine and although I do brush my teeth twice a day was not happy with the colour. I decided to trial this toothpaste and loved the results. My teeth were never pure white so will never be, but the difference was clear just after 2 weeks and love that, just brushed, clean feeling lasting all day.
Even better was the loss of sensitivity when eating cold food and even my dentist noticed that I was definitely, less jumpy, while having my teeth cleaned.
These are the benefits given by the product supplier.
