Pearl white teeth are everyone's dream. While dentists insist that some yellow is natural and healthy, people often opt for expensive treatments, just so they can smile. And if you are one of them, and looking to dazzle your teeth before an important occasion, here are some ways to do it naturally, without harming dental health. Listed below are some home remedies; keep reading.
Use baking soda to brush
Baking soda is considered a natural whitening remedy. It is a popular ingredient in many commercial toothpastes. It is believed that the mild washing properties of sodium bicarbonate eliminate surface stains on teeth. But don't expect to see a difference overnight. You must do it for a period of time to get the bleaching effect.
Use apple cider vinegar
For years, apple cider vinegar has been used as a natural cleaning product. Acetic acid, which is its main ingredient, is believed to kill bacteria in the mouth and whiten teeth. However, the acid has the potential to erode the enamel, so do not use it as a mouthwash every day. Also, limit the contact time of apple cider vinegar with your teeth. Also, wash your mouth with water after finishing.

Experts say that when the fruit is mixed with baking soda, it can produce a natural remedy for teeth whitening. It is believed that the malic acid found in strawberries eliminates tooth discoloration, and sodium bicarbonate, as mentioned above, can remove surface stains. While this remedy is not completely scientific, there is no harm in trying it.
According to one study, a toothpaste containing bromelain, an enzyme found in pineapple juice and pineapple stalk, is likely to be more effective in removing stains than a standard toothpaste. While some people claim that the fruit has the same effect, there is no concrete evidence of the same.
This traditional Indian remedy is associated with better oral hygiene and the elimination of toxins from the body. For this, you will have to stir a little oil inside the mouth to eliminate the bacteria that cause plaque and the yellowing of the teeth. Sunflower, sesame or any other oil will work.
Remember to check with your dentist first and do not overdo these home remedies.
