4 Ways To Whiten Your Teeth

Post image for 4 Ways To Whiten Your Teeth

There are so many products available these days to whiten your teeth, but they can be incredibly pricey. I’ve tried certain methods, but the results never seem to last (which probably also has to do with the amount of coffee I drink). Lately I’ve been looking into remedies that you can try on a regular basis at home, and I’ve found that there are actually quite a few things you can do to keep your teeth clean and sparkly white. Here are 4 things you can try at home to whiten your teeth!

ways to whiten teeth

Eat strawberries!

I remember hearing this when I was young and it has stuck with me ever since — and the truth is, it works. Strawberries contain an astringent that aids in the removal of surface stains, and vitamin C, which whitens teeth by clearing away plaque. Strawberries are in season in the summer so take full advantage and keep your fridge stocked with them! When you eat one, take a bite out and then rub the remainder over your teeth.

ways to whiten teeth

Crunchy Fruits & Veggies

Crisp, crunchy vegetables like carrots and celery or fruits like apples are also great natural whiteners! They act like a toothbrush as you chew them by removing excess food and bacteria and scrubbing away surface stains. Chewing them also stimulates saliva, your mouth’s natural cleaning method. Carrots also contain vitamin A, which is needed for healthy tooth enamel, and apples contain malic acid, which helps dissolve stains — malic acid is a chemical that happens to be used in many teeth whitening products.

ways to whiten teeth

Orange Peels

The white part of an orange peel is called the albedo. This part of the orange contains vitamin C and limonene, among other things. Limonene is a natural solvent cleaner that is used in many cleaning products. The peels do not contain any citric acid either, which can harm the enamel of your teeth. Next time you eat an orange, rub the peel over your teeth before you throw it away!

ways to whiten teeth

Baking Soda & Hydrogen Peroxide

This last method should be used with caution, because if done too often it can wear at the enamel on your teeth. Combine baking soda with hydrogen peroxide to form a “paste” to brush your teeth with. It may taste unpleasant but it’s extremely effective — and I know it sounds strange to use hydrogen peroxide in your mouth, but it’s actually the bleaching agent used in most teeth whiteners. If you’re thinking about trying out a pricey store-bought method, skip it and try this remedy instead!

Looks like I am doing well then! I eat strawberries as well as other crunch fruits and veggies (apples especially) everyday! I also have been using Baking Soda, and I’ll have to start combining it with Hydrogen Peroxide. I am definitely going to start doing that with my oranges also! Great tips! OH and I love that tattoo, whoevers it is!

thank you very informative

Bonnie -July 3, 2013, 5:23PM

I eat all those things, but I leave my teeth cleaning/whitening to my dentist!

May -July 4, 2013, 2:11AM

I used to try the third way, but it is not useful to my teeth. I want try other methods in this blog. I also love natural ways.

Lily -July 6, 2013, 6:41PM

Fantastic! (as always) Lemon juice works very well too.

Teeth Whitening -August 16, 2013, 3:53AM

The different types of inexpensive teeth whitening procedures that you have provided in your post is really great. People can use banana peel to whiten their teeth also. It is very safe and healthy. They can gently rub their teeth with the inner soft portion of banana peel for around 2 minutes. If they follow this process every day then they will get results within 2-3 weeks.

Kendra -August 27, 2013, 11:14AM

I actually take baking soda and lemon juice to create a paste, then brush my teeth with it. but of course use this with caution because it can make your teeth sensitive if done too much!

Sarah -August 31, 2013, 10:46PM

I love these tips, especially the one about eating strawberries! Apart from taking good care of my teeth generally, I get my dentist to do a deep cleaning about twice a year which keeps my teeth nice and white.

Lydia -September 14, 2013, 6:37PM

Mehhh. I have naturally yellow teeth, not just surface stains. Nothing ever works :(

Mara -September 27, 2013, 1:51AM

These are great tips you have here. At least, I can do the process of tooth whitening at home. I really wanted to improve the color of my teeth. It’s a confidence booster.

Lanie -October 9, 2013, 10:16PM

I agree. Those natural and safe tips are really helpful to have a white teeth. In this way, we can save money as well as assured that it has no bad effects in our teeth.

Advances in Dental Implant Technology -October 16, 2013, 7:44AM

The natural remedies provided here for teeth whitening are just awesome. I think it is better to try out natural process like eating strawberries and crunchy vegetables is much more easier and free from side effects, if any.

Thiago daLuz -October 28, 2013, 10:14AM

I’ve heard that baking soda is a risky move. Not all teeth can take it. That wasn’t from our Whitby dentists, though. I haven’t asked them about it. But I can definitely get behind the strawberry eating.

Robin Fenti -November 13, 2013, 5:07PM

Love this post. I had no idea about the strawberries or the white part of the oranges. The strawberries are totally counter intuitive.

Think it is worth mentioning to your readers that in addition to your thoughtful suggestions, it is well known you can buy strips at the grocery store or go to your dentist for gel to use in custom made trays that fit your teeth perfectly. These work. However, I just bought a <a href="http://ionicpearl.com/pearl-brilliant-white.html"<Pearl, which I use at home. It uses an ionic whitening gel that removes stains without harming the enamel and it really works. I am very happy with the color of my teeth and it is super easy to use. Anyone wanting to control the whiteness of their teeth, should give this their consideration.

Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?

I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for
something unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I
had to ask!

Power Bank -February 22, 2014, 5:24AM

Generally I don’t learn article on blogs, however
I would like to say that this write-up very compelled me to try and
do so! Your writing taste has been amazed me. Thank you, very nice
article.

Whoa! This blog looks exactly like my old one!
It’s on a entirely different topic but it has pretty much the same page layout and design.

Great choice of colors!

Casey -March 13, 2014, 4:50PM

This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a reader amused.
Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job.
I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
Too cool!

satiereal saffron extract appetite suppressant -March 14, 2014, 9:07AM

What the heck i just read? The primary factor is to consult the physician previous to
using this product. The extract of Saffron
Extract can be purchased as supplements and products and talking to a health care professional
can provide you a clear knowledge of the truth that will it fit you or not.
This supplement frequently fits the needs of all the individuals but differences are usually there.

So, it is advisable to just be sure you usually are not the main one that could not work with this product.
Another problem is regarding the amount. You need to question your personal doctor regarding the consumption and
be precise concerning this authentic Saffron Extract.

WOW.Nice read here. The important key to precisely how this product gets results is that it can be a dual-action diet
product, and therefore it operates being an appetite reducing drug as well as a “fat burner”.
This definitely shows that it oxidizes your fat skin cells with the use of
anti-oxidants, and also ends in more energy for yourself – but only if know
how to use authentic Saffron Extract in the ideal fashion.Virtually all diet solutions on the market today are intended around
reving up your metabolic rate, which can be simply not secure
for some – and this is the reason why many
people are deciding to order Saffron Extract extract instead.

Marcus -March 24, 2014, 1:34PM

Very nice read Fp Julia! Especially me being a big “all natural” freak lol. I can appreciate the all natural way of doing things. I recently got into trying to whiten my teeth because I had been prescribed medicine that has giving this weird yellow hue to my teeth, which sucks. I asked my dentist what I should do, but he wants me to do those things which I hear bad reviews on them and I have also tried banana peels and the strawberry method, which as far as for myself it has given me no results! :-( Now, I don’t want to sound like a commercial but I was driving down John Young pkwy and I heard this guy John Greenhut or something like that, speaking about some product called Power Swabs. Figured it was just some other teeth whitening product, but they had a risk free offer, so I figured why not. They advertise, that it works on veneers, which I have and my dentist say they don’t work on. Also that it whitens 2 shades in 5 minutes, I needed to see this thing work with my own eyes and too my surprised it actually freakin’ worked! Even got my dentist into it! LOL HAHA… Now, I know I sound like a commercial but I have tried other products that are crappy products and spent a buttload on them. I figured for once a product worked great, why not give them some recognition! lol :-) Anyways check them out, I highly recommend…powerswabs.com

What I usually do is use the baking soda plus lemon extract method. :) This was also helpful, though. I never thought that strawberries have certain astringent which would help to clear the plaques on my teeth. Guess I have to eat more strawberries than before. HA HA.
