TEETH WHITENING AT HOME
So option #1 is that if you’re a coffee drinker, smoke cigarettes, drink dark sodas and other teeth staining products, then you can limit their discoloring properties by brushing your teeth immediately after consuming them. This is not convenient or practical, but effective if you are able to do so.
Option #2 sounds crazy but please trust me as I have researched this heavily and it is definitely true. You can actually use charcoal to whiten your teeth, you may have heard of hospital emergency departments making heavily intoxicated patients eat charcoal as a way of absorbing the alcohol i their stomachs, and I also recently posted a video in which I suggested putting charcoal chunks in your fridge and other areas to absorb foul smells.
This is because charcoal extracts toxins, odors and also tannin’s and pigments which are both chemicals that change the colour of surfaces. There are 2 options for using charcoal which is to take a piece or chunk of charcoal and actually rub it on your teeth for up to 30 seconds per teeth and then rinse with water and brush as normal with toothpaste.
The second option may seem a bit strange, but it’s perfectly safe and is more effective than the first option. You can buy charcoal in powder form and you can add some powder to water and then use that solution to brush all your teeth. Once thoroughly brushed, you can then rinse your mouth and then brush with normal toothpaste.
The other serious point to make about the charcoal is to make sure that you don’t use BBQ charcoal which contains harmful lighter fluid. You want to buy natural charcoal (NOT BBQ CHARCOAL WHICH CONTAINS LIGHTER FLUID)
Option #3 is to make a paste of baking soda and lemon juice. Just put 3-4 teaspoons of baking soda into a cup, and add enough lemon juice to form a paste and then brush your teeth thoroughly and leave to soak on your teeth for 1 minute and then rinse off.
Option #4 is to make a similar paste but to use hydrogen peroxide and baking soda. Hydrogen peroxide is an active ingredient in the majority of commercial teeth whitening products and baking soda is a natural whitening agent.
Option #5 is using white or apple cider vinegar by dipping your brush in either substance and brushing your teeth with it. This option will not have immediate results but if you persist for up to a month, this very inexpensive and natural option can generate whiter teeth.
Option #6 is various methods referred to as oil pulling which has been practiced for centuries. Some oil pulling options are as follows:
Pour coconut oil onto a toothbrush and brush as normal followed by a normal brush with regular toothpaste.
Put a teaspoon of coconut oil in your mouth and swish it around for between 5 and 15 minutes and then brush as normal with regular toothpaste.
Apply coconut oil onto a cloth and rub each tooth and then brush with regular toothpaste.
Option #7 is to cut an orange and keep the orange peel, rub the inside of the peel all over your teeth and then brush as normal with toothpaste. This is another longer term option that will take at least a few weeks or longer to show results.
And finally, option #8 is to create a paste of toothpaste and baking soda and brush your teeth with that every day.
