Whiten Your Teeth at Home with Traditional Remedies

Did you know that food and drinks like berries, coffee, and red wine can stain your teeth and keep you from getting that perfect white smile? Whiter teeth can not only boost your confidence but are also more healthy and enhance your appearance by minimizing the chances of wrinkles. 

Although, there is something particularly unique about the effectiveness of teeth whitening professionally done by a dentist but these days people are looking for different alternatives to whiten their teeth from the comfort of their home.

If you struggle with stained or yellow teeth, you can whiten your teeth naturally with traditional methods or get professional treatment. 

Here are five simple and effective remedies for teeth whitening: 

  • Use a whitening toothpaste and electric toothbrush

One of the most permanent ways to whiten your teeth is by using a whitening toothpaste regularly. Complimenting a whitening toothpaste with an electric toothbrush will add in an extra layer of hygiene and will ensure your teeth and gums are clean and bacteria free. 

  • Follow a teeth-friendly diet.

Do you like fruits, vegetables, and dairy? Now is the right time to pick your top choices for your teeth. A study found that proteins from papayas and pineapples help whiten teeth. Certain dairy items like milk cheese yogurt keep the teeth healthy and clean. 

  • Limit staining foods and drinks

Coffee, red wine, soda, and berries are famous for staining teeth. But that doesn't mean you need to stay away from them totally, yet you should restrict the quantity. You can also use a straw to prevent teeth from coming in direct contact.

Another teeth stainer is smoking or consuming tobacco as they cause nicotine stains. Consider quitting to maintain your smile and prevent tooth decay and gum infections. 

  • Brushing and flossing are still a must.

Maintaining good oral hygiene is very important to prevent yellow stains on your teeth. While brushing, make sure to clean around the gums and the backs of your teeth. Also, remember to floss regularly, as it can help with removing plaque between the teeth.

  • Professional teeth whitening services: 

While these traditional home remedies can be effective, the safest, fastest and most effective way to whiten your teeth is to get professional treatment. The teeth whitening cost varies depending on the kind of treatment you're getting. On average, the price reaches up to $800 in some clinics, and some offer additional take-home kits with customized product trays which adds up to the costs.
