Wonderful Teeth Whitening With Strawberries

Some people are born with teeth that are more yellow than others. But often we can whiten teeth and our bright smile can change whole appearance. And not obligatory you need to go to the cosmetic dentist to do teeth whitening.

If you have strawberries and baking powder you can start teeth bleaching right now.

It may sound strange, but really strawberry and baking powder can make your teeth whiter. As says www.health.com:

The secret to this inexpensive home whitening method is malic acid, which acts as an astringent to remove surface discoloration.

Combined with baking powder, strawberries become a natural tooth-cleanser, buffing away stains from coffee, red wine, and dark sodas. While it’s no replacement for a bleaching treatment at your dentist’s office, “this is a fast, cheap way to brighten your smile,” says Adina Carrel, DMD, a dentist in private practice at Manhattan Dental Arts in New York.

“Be careful not to use this too often, though, as the acid could damage the enamel on your teeth.”

Toothbrush and strawberry

You will need to mash up one ripe strawberry and add in 1/2 tablespoon of baking soda. Then use a soft toothbrush to spread the mixture onto your teeth.

Leave on for 5 minutes, then brush thoroughly with toothpaste to remove the berry–baking powder mix. Rinse. And floss – get out all strawberry seeds.

Take a look into mirror to note your smile whiteness.

Dentists say you can apply this type of home teeth whitening once a week.
