Your teeth may change color and the change is gradual. Teeth tend to look more yellow as you age. The outer enamel breaks down and the yellow dentin that is below becomes visible. Dentin lies below the enamel and is the calcified tissue. Here are some methods that you can adopt to whiten your teeth.
How to whiten your teeth
Here are some ways to brighten and whiten your teeth easily!
- Brushing your teeth: Brush your teeth in the correct manner. It is important to brush your teeth after consuming drinks and foods that can cause yellowing of teeth. You should brush your teeth two times a day for 2-3 minutes. Make sure that you clean all the crevices and cracks in the teeth. Always brush the teeth in a circular motion and protect your gums.
- Coconut oil pulling: Coconut oil pulling will remove bacteria and plaque from the mouth. This will help whiten the teeth. Remember to use coconut oil that is of a high quality and is organic in nature so that it does not contain harmful ingredients. Do not swallow the oil. Rinse your mouth with water and drink a glass of water after you finish swishing. Finally, brush your teeth.
- Use apple cider vinegar: It is recommended that you use apple cider vinegar in a very small amount. Prepare a mouthwash by adding 2 tsp of apple cider vinegar in 6 ounces of water. Mix well and swish the solution for 30 seconds. Rinse with water and finally brush your teeth. Always use in small amounts and do not make it a habit to use it regularly as it can damage the hardness of the teeth.
- Rubbing lemon, orange or banana peels on teeth: Running lemon, orange or banana peels on the teeth helps to remove the yellowness of the teeth and makes them whiter.
