5. Brush Twice a Day
When you brush twice a day, you reduce chances of getting stained teeth over a period of time. You should also cut back on drinking dark colored drinks such as coffee, tea and red wine in between brushes periodically to maintain white teeth. Rinse your mouth with mouthwash that also has teeth whitening properties.
6. Use Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar works well because of the antioxidants in it that gets rid of the bacteria on the teeth that cause heavy stains on the teeth. You can rinse your mouth with a combination of apple cider vinegar and water or lemon juice.
7. Lemon Juice and All Natural Toothpastes
Lemon juice contains acids that eliminate tough stains on the teeth and when you put a few teaspoons of it on an all natural toothpaste, you will have a whiter smile. Repeat this procedure a few times a week and then you should see results by that time.
The best way to have whiter teeth is to visit a professional but if you are unable to do so, you can use these methods to whiten your teeth. When you use home remedies, it may take time before you see results so it is important to be patient. Avoid gimmicky teeth whitening products that have not been tested or approved by the FDA or that have not been researched by experts in the medical community. Once your teeth whiten, maintain the bright smile by eating the right foods, brushing your teeth regularly and visiting your dentist.
