When it comes to hygiene and taking care of ourselves, our teeth are extremely important.
It's up to us to take care of our teeth as best as possible, but the fact of the matter is that several of us fail to do so -- consistently. Everyone loves to smile, but smiling is the last thing you want to do if your teeth are discolored. Don't worry, you're not the only one.
You could brush three times a day and floss daily, but your teeth still won't be as bright as they could be because you smoke, constantly drink coffee or the like. No shade, stick to your normal routine. Don't drop hundreds of dollars on getting your teeth cleaned when you can clean them yourself for a huge portion of the price you'll more than likely be charged.
Step away from the coffee, put down your wallet and get ready to do it yourself -- the old fashioned way.
Peroxide and Baking Soda Paste:
Swap out your toothpaste for a mixture of peroxide and baking soda. No, you aren't baking a cake. Yes, if you do this consistently your smile will become brighter -- in a positive sense.
Banana Peel Rub:
Who doesn't love a tasty banana? Well in this case, you won't be eating the banana. Take the inside of a banana peel and rub on your teeth for 2 minutes. Brush your teeth as regular following this procedure. Continue daily until you notice a change.
Some of your favorite celebs have used this method to whiten their teeth and much to their surprise, it actually works. Grab some sesame oil or coconut oil and make sure it's not in solid for. Pour a cap size into your mouth and swish around allowing the oil mix to combine with your saliva. Do this for 20 minutes and spit mixture out. Rinse your mouth and follow up by brushing your teeth. Repeat this method a couple times per week.
