A highly used and effective remedy is lemon. Once a week cut a thick slice of lemon and rub the toothbrush in it. Then rinse your mouth thoroughly. Repeat the process for at least 5 minutes. If you have severe pain, go to your dentist to see if you have oral health problems. After applying lemon, wash thoroughly to remove citric acid, which can attack the tooth enamel. You can even use lemon juice to rinse teeth. Add 1/3 lemon juice and 2/3 water. This method can be used daily in the morning.
Salt, sodium bicarbonate and vinegar.
Another well-known remedy is sodium bicarbonate. This white powder is only used once a week, after normal evening brushing.
Even if they’re a little expensive now, you can also use strawberries to whiten your teeth and refresh your breath. Make a paste of strawberry and sodium bicarbonate to rub your teeth once a week.
Rub your teeth with orange or lemon peel, breed and dry. The bark can also be mixed with basil or sage leaves. It’s a slow whitening process, but with very good results. After rubbing your teeth, wash your teeth normally. After a few months you will see the results.
Salt is most commonly used for teeth whitening. You can use the kitchen salt, simply sprinkling it on the toothpaste on the brush, both in the morning and in the evening. At the same time, you can mix the salt with some crushed coal and then massage your teeth with this dust. The solution can irritate the gum. Take care!
Even if it seems stranger, vinegar is also a good remedy. Mix apple vinegar with a little salt and half a teaspoon of baking powder. Massage your teeth with a brush soaked in the paste and rinse thoroughly with water.
The apple vinegar combination with olive oil is also good. Mix in a bowl a spoonful of extra virgin olive oil and a teaspoon of apple vinegar. Afterwards, soften the brush in this combination and wash your teeth. Do not use the method too often, because excess vinegar can affect the tooth enamel.
Other household solutions
Hydrogen peroxide bleaches teeth. Rinse a few times a month, but not more often. If you want to use it several times, dilute it with water, rinse your mouth for 1 minute, then rinse thoroughly with water.
Another beneficial combination is obtained from half a tablespoon of sodium bicarbonate, a salt peak and a drop of essential mint oil. Brush your teeth with this mixture. The sodium bicarbonate particles will act as a grinder on the surface of the teeth and will clean them in depth. In addition, in combination with water, this blend will reduce any enamel stains.
Another natural remedy is to clean the teeth with hard ash. This helps to teeth whitening because it contains potassium hydroxide, which acts as a whitening agent. But it is not recommended in the long run because potassium damages the tooth enamel.
Coal gives brilliance to teeth
Coal is very good in whitening teeth that have lost their shine. It is an old method, especially used in rural areas. Effects only appear if it is applied for a longer period of time. How are you doing? Slowly rub your teeth for 30 seconds to one minute with coal ash, rinse with water and then wash your teeth with the brush as you usually do. There is also the powdery form of coal, which you can find in pharmacies.
