Take the time after you eat or drink to rinse your mouth out with water. This simple step helps to remove food particles and stain-causing beverages from your teeth, which will help keep them whiter. Rinsing will help keep stains from developing on your teeth.
You can create a whitening toothpaste using peroxide and baking soda. Brush all of the surfaces of your teeth using this mixture for at least five but, no more than ten, minutes. Avoid brushing too vigorously or your gums may bleed and become irritated. Strawberry juice is a great natural teeth whitening agent. The acid in the juice softens your tooth’s enamel, and removes some of the discoloration. This is a relatively inexpensive way to get the smile you have always wanted. Use a straw when drinking highly acidic beverages, such as sodas or citrus juices. Using a straw will help divert the acid away from your teeth, into your mouth, which can keep it from causing damage to your teeth. Gray teeth are often caused by thinning tooth enamel, so protecting your tooth enamel will keep your teeth whiter.
