WHITEN TEETH NATURALLY? WITH these 10 tips it works!

One thing in advance: Many people try to whiten their teeth with baking soda. This also works because the sodium hydrogen carbonate abrades the discolorations. Unfortunately, this also weakens the enamel, which in turn promotes not only discoloration but also tooth decay. So baking soda is definitely not the right remedy for whiter teeth! Just as little, by the way, as lemon juice, cigar ash and strawberry mousse - or whatever else is circulating on the Internet. All of them end up harming your teeth more than they help.

However, here are 10 tips and natural remedies that you can use to whiten your teeth! Let's go!

1. set the causes

Water in a glass for whiter teeth

First of all, you should use the Causes of yellow discolored teeth so that you can specifically avoid them:

  • Cigarettes
  • Alcohol
  • Black coffee
  • Tea
  • Red wine
  • Soft drinks

Nicotine in particular leads to yellow-brownish stains on the teeth. In addition, it promotes tooth discoloration caused by foods such as coffee or tea. However, there are also some identified culprits₁ that one tends not to associate with tooth discoloration:

  • Mouthwashes (with stannous fluoride and chlorhexidine reduce plaque and this promotes discoloration)
  • Lemonade (Sugar and citric acid in it are particularly harmful to tooth enamel and promote yellow teeth).
  • Antibiotics (form calcium chelas, which can be deposited in and under the enamel and cause discoloration).
  • Cough syrup (The syrup attaches to the teeth, while sugar and alcohol dry out the mouth at the same time).
  • Iron Prepared (tablets containing iron, which are recommended for iron deficiency, can also lead to yellowish teeth).

To avoid discoloration, many dentists recommend drinking dark-colored and acidic beverages with a straw (e.g. reusable stainless steel straws) to enjoy. Subsequently, it is also advised to reduce the acidity in the mouth by drinking a glass of vegetable milk or clear water. This is the basis for the tips and home remedies for whiter teeth from this article to be as successful as possible!

By the way: Age can also play a decisive role in yellow teeth, as tooth enamel naturally decreases the older you get. However, this cannot be prevented. Also take a look at the article about sustainable dental care to protect your teeth for as long as possible.

2. effective cleaning

Whether you want to preserve your white teeth or whiten your stained teeth, proper brushing is one of the most important ways to prevent plaque and discoloration.

You should brush your teeth thoroughly at least three times a day! With dental floss and mouthwash. Here are some more tips on brushing behavior:

  • Never less than three minutes
  • Change toothbrush every two months
  • Place the brush at an angle when brushing
  • Brush from the gum to the tooth surface so that the brush can remove plaque
  • Brush with light pressure
  • Do not forget spaces
  • Change hand more often to reach other areas

You can find detailed recommendations for example here at the Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians Baden-Württemberg.

3. banana peel

A very natural remedy for white teeth can also be the classic banana peel! If you rub its inside against your teeth for about 2 minutes, wait a few minutes and then brush your teeth with your toothbrush without toothpaste, the Minerals from the banana develop their effect. Recommended to perform the application once a day and that for 2-3 weeks.₂.

4. oil pulling

Oil pulling against yellow teeth

A popular means for whiter teeth is also the so-called oil pulling. To do this, you add olive oil or Coconut oil in your mouth, move it and pull it between your teeth again and again. This is how the Mouth area extracted toxins and the teeth are provided with a natural protective film.

However, there is no scientific evidence yet for the teeth-whitening effect of oil pulling.₃

5. bleaching

Admittedly - this tip is not very natural. But more and more people are opting for it. Because when it comes to internal tooth discoloration that can no longer be removed with a toothbrush, even a simple bleaching procedure in the dental office can remedy the situation. This is even possible as home bleaching at home. However, for safety reasons, I would only advise having this done at your dentist's office.

6. use the right toothbrush

I personally use an ecological Wooden toothbrush, to avoid annoying Avoid plastic waste. I am very satisfied with this. However, many dentists also advise to use a electric toothbrush because the fast and continuous movements are supposed to provide better brushing performance. Be sure to discuss this with your dentist to be on the safe side!₄

7. the toothpaste decides

You can get your Make toothpaste yourself, to avoid waste and harmful ingredients. For example, from coconut oil and Baking soda. Alternatively you should click on the Toothpastes rated "very good" and "good" by Ökotest from the drugstore.

8. food for whiter teeth food

Green and red apples in skin

At the beginning I told you that there are foods that are mainly responsible for yellowish teeth. Therefore, if you want whiter teeth, you should rather eat the things that have antibacterial effect and make your teeth whiter. Here are some examples:

  • Apples
  • Strawberries
  • Turmeric
  • Sage/Sage leaves
  • Carrots
  • Olive oil

If possible, try to avoid coloring foods such as To give up red wine, tea and coffeeif you want to preserve your white teeth.
