Baking soda with ginger
A good home remedy for whitening teeth is to brush your teeth daily with a homemade mix that is prepared with baking soda and ginger, ingredients that are easily found in pharmacies and stores of natural products, in conjunction with a whitening toothpaste.
This paste is good for whitening teeth because it has an exfoliating effect, removing tartar or tartar microparticles that make the teeth more yellowish and darker. However, this home treatment for teeth whitening should only be done 2 times a week so as not to wear out the teeth, because it can weaken the tooth enamel causing sensitivity.
- 2 to 3 teaspoons of baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon ginger powder
- 3 drops of peppermint essential oil.
Mix all the ingredients very well and store in a tightly closed container and away from light. Always wet the toothbrush first, place the normal toothpaste and then add this mixture, brushing the teeth well and rinsing with water at the end.
Rinse with coconut oil
Coconut oil is an antimicrobial that helps eliminate bacterial plaque, in addition to promoting the health of the gums. In this way, it is a very healthy option to whiten teeth, eliminating dark spots.
- 1 teaspoon of coconut oil
Place a small spoonful of coconut oil or coconut butter in your mouth. Let melt and rinse the mouth so that the product goes through all the teeth for about 3 to 5 minutes. Finally, remove the excess and brush your teeth.
Tip: To lighten the teeth successfully it is also important to follow some tips such as not drinking dark-colored beverages such as black tea or coffee, or industrialized juices, which have many dyes and end up darkening the teeth.
