Homemade Beauty Tips to Make White Teeth
Discoloration of tooth enamel can happen over time from excess consumption of soda, coffee, tobacco and more, and there are many low-cost, natural remedies that help dissolve the stains. People spend thousands of dollars trying to get their teeth to be a coveted, pearly white hue when the answer to their problems may be in the pantry.

Strawberry and Baking Soda Scrub

Strawberries contain malic acid, which acts as a whitening agent by dissolving surface stains. There are two methods of application:

Make a paste by crushing one strawberry in a small bowl and mix with 1/2 teaspoon baking soda. Spread on teeth and leave for 5 minutes. Brush with toothpaste immediately after.

Cut the fruit in half and use the inside to rub the berry’s juice onto your teeth. Brush with baking soda to buff the enamel’s surface. Rinse immediately and brush with toothpaste.

It is imperative to brush and rinse as soon as possible after using the strawberries. The acid and natural sugar of the fruit should not be left on teeth too long. This method must be used sparingly, once a week at most, otherwise it could strip the enamel.

Lemon Juice and Salt Rinse

Lemon juice works in the same way as strawberries; the acid combats stains on yellowing teeth to make them whiter. While this rinse is less harsh than many of the drugstore whitening kits, it is not for those with sensitive teeth, because the heightened level of acidity could cause oral irritation. This rinse consists of three parts fresh lemon juice and one part salt. Swish for one minute. You may also add this mix to your toothpaste and brush as usual.

Everything in Moderation

As with all acidic fruits, do not use these home remedies more than once a week. Without proper cleansing following the homemade treatments, the overexposure could damage teeth. Natural enamel would be stripped, increasing sensitivity, and the vitamin C contained in the strawberries and lemons can result in calcium loss.
