Multiple factors cause teeth to become dull and lose their bright, white sparkle.
Here are simple ways you can naturally whiten your teeth.
You must take adequate measures to improve your oral health care. Use an over-the-counter whitening toothpaste and a toothbrush to help get rid of stains and plaque more effectively than a regular brush. While it’s advised to brush and floss your teeth after every meal, doing so immediately can do more harm than good. The acid and sugar produced right after eating weakens the teeth' enamel temporarily and brushing immediately after a meal could weaken it further. Wait for an hour or so before brushing. If not, brush your teeth half an hour before eating and then rinse your mouth later.
Rinsing your mouth with coconut, sesame or tea tree oil can help get rid of tartar and plaque that cause discolouration and will also prevent any gum conditions. Rinse your mouth with two tablespoons of either of these oils for at least five minutes before spitting it out. Rinse with lukewarm water. Avoid eating anything for the next half an hour. Do this twice daily to avoid any dental problems.
You can use activated charcoal to get rid of plaque and microscopic tidbits that cause staining. To get started, simply wet your toothbrush and dip it into powdered activated charcoal. Brush your teeth as you would normally, paying special attention to the affected areas. Rinse your mouth two to three times. For best results, do this two to three times a week.
You could use neem twigs as a toothbrush to brush your teeth in the mornings. Chewing on neem leaves can also help prevent your teeth from turning yellow. You can also mix a few drops of neem essential oil with your regular toothpaste. Once a week, mix together equal amounts of apple cider vinegar and water and swirl it around your mouth for a few minutes. Rubbing your teeth with banana peel or orange peels every day can also help in whitening your teeth.
