Everyone wants a full smile of pearly whites and by today’s standards, the whiter the better. Unfortunately multiple visits to the dentist to get your teeth whitened becomes costly and the stains they remove might come back. Summit Dentists in Houston believe in practicing home care and remedies, prevention starts with your regular home maintenance routine.
Baking Soda: The most commonly heard of, baking soda has many purposes including teeth whitening. Use it plain on a damp toothbrush or mix it with toothpaste to mask the salty taste.
Strawberries: Not many people are aware that strawberries contain natural teeth whitening agents and the seeds work great for cleaning. Since they also contain sugar and acids, it’s important to brush immediately afterwards with a fluoride toothpaste.
Hydrogen Peroxide: One of the most popular home remedies, peroxide, is cheap and most people have it on hand. Chances are, you will feel some burning in your gums, but you’ll be left with clean, whiter teeth. It’s also safe to gargle, but don’t swallow.
Its also common to mix these ingredients to make your own teeth whitening recipe, but remember that this doesn’t replace your toothbrush and toothpaste or your regular visit to the dentist!
