Eating Strawberry Fruit
There have been several studies that prove that strawberries can whiten teeth because they contain an enzyme called malic acid (malic acid), astringent, and vitamin C.
Astringent in strawberries can help remove stains on tooth surfaces, while Vitamin C will wipe the plaque off the teeth.
Brush your teeth with a few strawberry pieces that have been destroyed twice a week, to give you quick results.
You can also regularly eat strawberries, but make sure you chew properly to strawberry spread evenly on all parts of the tooth.
Active Charcoal (Activated Charcoal)
It may sound a bit odd, whiten teeth with something that is black in color. But activated charcoal is actually a highly permeable porous material that can bind substances such as tannins – polyphenolic compounds derived from plants, which can stain and make teeth yellow or brown.
Active charcoal is also very good for maintaining pH levels and overall oral health, because it can help prevent tartar, and kill bad bacteria that cause tooth decay and gingivitis. How to use it is easy:
Destroy the activated charcoal until it becomes a powder, cover the surface of the toothbrush with charcoal powder, and start brushing your teeth as usual, or mix one teaspoon of activated charcoal powder with a glass of water, rinse with this mixture for a few minutes, then remove the water and let the charcoal still Stick to the teeth for a few more minutes in order to tie the stain on the teeth, then clean the teeth as usual.
One important thing to remember when going to try this way is, make sure you only use activated charcoal that is safe to eat and is medically safe. Such charcoal can be found in pharmacies or drugstores. Never use charcoal commonly used to burn sate.
Baking Soda and Lemon
This could be the most widely known way to whiten teeth. When using only one material, the effect will not be visible.
But when combined, the chemical reaction of baking soda and lemon is very effective to restore the color of teeth.
Simply mix a teaspoon of baking soda with a little lemon juice in a small bowl, until it is shaped like a paste. The mixture will look slightly foamy. Before brushing your teeth, use a cotton swab to dry saliva and excess plaque on your teeth.
Apply the mixture evenly on the teeth, let stand for one minute, and clean it gently by using a toothbrush.
You should only use this mixture once a week, because too frequent use can dilute tooth enamel. If there is irritation after you use this method, there is a possibility of baking soda is too strong for your gums, so immediately stop using and try another way.
The thought of whitening teeth with oil may make your forehead crease, but this is the traditional Indian way that has long been used to maintain overall oral health.
The concept is to rinse using natural oils, such as sesame oil, coconut oil, or olive oil to help remove plaque and bacteria from the mouth. Coconut oil has been shown to effectively combat the streptococcus mutans bacteria that are responsible for tartar and gum disease.
Simply insert one tablespoon of natural and organic oil of your choice on the mouth, and rinse up to reach the entire surface and between the teeth for 15 to 20 minutes. After that, remove the oil and clean your mouth with water, and immediately drink 2 to 3 glasses of water.
