Your regular coffee, your occasional glass of red wine, smoking, certain foods and medications can all stain your teeth.
Even though you are brushing twice a day, flossing and rinsing your mouth you can still notice that yellowish-brownish hue on the teeth which is not at all attractive.
So what can you do since you cannot afford an ultra expensive laser teeth whitening treatment just now?
Teeth Stain Removal: Baking soda +Hydrogen peroxide
This is quite a popular and efficient home made remedy for removing stains from the teeth. First you will take two tsp. of hydrogen peroxide and the same amount of baking soda. Stir well until you will get a very thick, creamy paste.
In order to make the paste more “appealing” you can add 1-2 drops of natural mint essence/oil to your paste. Make sure to brush well using this paste, but leave the paste to set on your teeth for a few minutes before you will rinse it off.
Be careful, because this homemade whitening paste is not suitable for patients with irritated/inflamed gums (hydrogen peroxide could cause more damage). Also, patients with mouth sores, ulcers and other mouth irritations should avoid using hydrogen peroxide as an ingredient.
Removing Teeth Stains: Baking soda + lemon juice
These two kitchen cupboard ingredients will work perfectly to remove stubborn stains from your teeth. One pinch of baking soda and a few drops of freshly squeezed lemon should be mixed well and then rubbed over the teeth.
In order to get a much better result in removing teeth stains, rub this paste onto your teeth using your finger and allow it to sit for a couple of minutes before rinsing.
Teeth Stains Natural Remedy: Orange peel
If you are worried about destroying your dental enamel with all sorts of chemical whitening products, you can now take nature’s best to lighten a few shades your teeth. Use the inside portion of the orange peel to rub it on your teeth for whitening purposes.
There are certain compounds in the “albedo” (the inside of the orange peel) such as limonene, vitamin C, soluble fibers and even pectin which all help getting a healthy dental whitening at home and removing stains on teeth.
Also, the orange peel does not contain any acids, so your dental enamel is fully protected no matter how often you will use it to whiten your teeth.
If the dental stains are so stubborn you cannot notice any results even after using these remedies, you should talk to your dentist. Maybe you need first to go through a professional dental whitening, and then just maintain the pure whiteness of your teeth with these home made remedies.
In order to help maintaining your teeth white, strong and healthy you should quit smoking, brush and floss regularly, and choose a straw when you consume acidic beverages or caffeinated ones.
Also purchase a dental whitening toothpaste, but do not use one with abrasive particles because you could damage your dental enamel. There are many all-natural whitening toothpastes available, and even if a little bit more expensive you will get far better results and your teeth are protected.
