Take Advantages Of Homemade Teeth Whiteners

People who smoke too much or drink excessive coffee or tea suffer with yellowing of teeth and stains on the teeth. Teeth whitening by a dentist could be very expensive. Following are some of the homemade teeth whitening remedies which are inexpensive but very effective.

Take 2 or 3 tea spoons of hydrogen peroxide and 3 tea spoons of baking soda in a small container. If you don't like the taste of peroxide you can add a small amount of mint into the mixture. Now mix water to make it a thick paste. Every morning after brushing with toothpaste and teeth whitening machine apply this mixture on your teeth and leave it for some time.

Make sure that paste does not go inside your stomach. After waiting for few minutes rinse your mouth thoroughly with water. This should make your teeth white and glowing. Don't try this remedy more than 3 to 5 times a month as small particles of baking soda can damage your teeth enamel.

We can also add table salt and small quantity of tooth paste to this mixture. People suffering with tooth or gum problems like cavities, gingivitis, should avoid using this homemade teeth whitening remedy as it can make the gum appear pale.

Dab your toothbrush or some dental instruments into the homemade teeth whitener and begin brushing the front of your top and bottom teeth (only the teeth in the front of the mouth which need to be whitened). This procedure works best when the teeth are very dry. To dry, use a paper towel or cotton ball on the lips, gums, and teeth where the paste will be applied. Brush for two full minutes (time yourself, if you need to), spending one minute on the top teeth and one minute on the bottom, then rinse thoroughly with warm water.

You must continue to use fluoride toothpaste

Remember, this is a teeth whitener only! It does not contain the cleaning chemical, fluoride, which dentists recommend as the number one chemical to clean the teeth with. In order to maintain good dental hygiene, you must continue to brush, floss, and see your dentist as normal. Use the homemade teeth whitener before you brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste.

Combining with other teeth whitening products

The homemade teeth whitener can be combined with other teeth whitening products for a better whitening effect, but users should be cautious. Too much hydrogen peroxide exposure can cause tooth and gum sensitivity. Listen to your mouth well, and try to avoid getting too much hydrogen peroxide on the gums.
