Family weddings are always fun. There is fun, there is enjoyment and above all, there is family. All is well till time comes for a family picture. The term, ‘Say cheese’ before clicking a picture suddenly changes to ‘Yellow yellow Dirty Fellow’ when you are mocking a relative of yours with yellow teeth. Well, if you are one such relative who has an unpleasant teeth color, your worrying times are over. Simply follow these 3 home remedies and make your teeth whiter and smile as much as you want at any wedding or party event.
1. Baking Soda and Lemon Paste:
Sodium bicarbonate (also known as Baking soda) is a pretty important ingredient in your teeth whitening process. Mix a few teaspoons of sodium bicarbonate with lemon juice and form a paste. The acidity of lemon juice is reduced by the alkaline nature of sodium bicarbonate thus giving you an effective solution. Once you have made the paste, apply it on your teeth using your toothbrush and leave it there for only a minute. Rinse after one minute and you will notice a considerable improvement in the color of your teeth.
2. Strawberries, Baking soda and Salt paste:
Sodium bicarbonate does wonders once again when mixed with strawberries and salt. Try using 2-3 strawberries, half teaspoon of baking soda and a pinch of salt to form a paste. The solution to break down plaque, which makes your teeth look yellow, is present in Vitamin C in Strawberries. The Malic acid in strawberries also helps remove any surface stains. Once the paste is ready, apply it on your teeth using your toothbrush and leave it there for about 5 minutes. Rinse after 5 minutes. Do this every night and you will start seeing results after some time.
3. Oil pulling- Coconut oil rinse:
Rinsing your mouth with coconut oil after waking up in the morning is one of the least preferred and most effective teeth whitening processes around. Take a tablespoon of coconut oil and put it in your mouth. The Lauric acid in coconut oil helps remove plaque which causes the teeth to turn yellow. Rinse and swirl the oil around in your mouth so that it gets to every corner of your teeth. Do this process for 10 minutes and then spit the liquid out. Now gargle with water and brush your teeth.
Enhancing your lifestyle:
An annual expenditure of $1.4 billion per annum is reported by people who spend this big chunk of money on teeth whitening products alone. Now imagine how much you would be saving if you forget all these extra efforts and focus on something useful, something a bit more homemade.
