We all want sparkling white teeth because clean, white teeth make us appear younger and well-groomed. We don't have to be spending a fortune on whitening products at the drugstore or dentist. Here are a few things from your kitchen that will create and save that dazzling smile.
Baking soda cleans everything and the kitchen sink including our teeth. Not the tastiest but worth it.Add a little baking soda to your toothbrush and brush for great results.
Peroxide rinse kills germs that cause dental caries, bad breath and whitens while it works. After brushing, rinse your mouth with peroxide for one minute being careful not to swallow. It freshens and cleanses while whitening teeth. You can use Apple Cider Vinegar in the same way with less risk from swallowing.
Celery is mostly made of water, has very little color of its own and by chewing you dislodge plaque that has settled on your teeth and between teeth, removing food and germs.
Rub strawberry on your teeth! A trick is used by many women for beautiful smile. Strawberries do miracles because of the enzymes they contain. Enzymes will whiten your teeth and clean the plaque but brush after because of the sugar in the strawberries! Some people do the same with orange peel or lemon peel but again, brush afterward.
Add a couple of drops of olive oil when you brush your teeth! Yes, olive oil. The other alternative is to apply directly with a cotton swab or cloth and rub.
One of the best ways...........brush 3 times daily, cut down on coffee and red wine and see your dentist regularly! AND please know that dental health is a great path to heart health!!
