#7 Gorge on Greens
We know broccoli, kale, spinach, and other dark green vegetables are good for us. But did you know they’re also good for our teeth? They all contain a mineral compound which creates a film over teeth that stains can’t penetrate.
#6 Brush with Hydrogen Peroxide
Hydrogen Peroxide is a bleaching agent, so of course it’ll whiten your teeth. Some folks worry about the effects, but products with less than 3% of the chemicals are completely safe. As a bonus you’ll also kill any bacteria on your teeth and gumline!
#5 MixBay Leaves and Orange Peel
This is a remedy good enough to eat! Dry fresh orange peel and bay leaves and pound them into powder in a mortar and pestle. Rub it on your teeth and you’ll be amazed at the results!
#4 Munch on Turmeric
It might give food a distinctive yellow hue, but turmeric will actually turn your teeth white. Chewing on the raw root is the most effective way to harness turmeric’s whitening properties. However if that seems unappetizing, you can brush with a paste of turmeric powder and water.
#3 Chew Gum with Xyoltol
Xyoltol is a natural sweetener used as a sugar substitute in many chewing gums. This clever ingredient neutralizes the mouth’s pH levels and increases saliva to clean the mouth. Who would have thought chewing gum could improve your smile?
#2 Chow Down on Crunchy Fruits and Vegetables
Fruits and vegetables aren’t just nutritious; they’re also great for your smile. Raw celery, carrots, apples, and other crunchy fruits and veggies will polish your teeth and remove stains as you chew. These foods also stimulate saliva, which also cleans away stains.
#1 Brush and Floss Your Teeth
There are plenty of natural remedies and expensive procedures around. However, one of the best way to maintain a Hollywood smile is to listen to your dentist. Brush and floss regularly and reap the beauty rewards!
