Whiten your teeth and improve your personality

Teeth are one of the most important parts of a face and they reflect the eating habits of a person. They can make or destroy your personality altogether. It is no good wearing heavy make ups when your basics are not right. And, the health of your teeth comes in the basics. No person can live without smiling or laughing. But, to smile confidently, talk impressively, you need to make some efforts or the result is not worth the glamor displayed. No one really likes yellowed and stained teeth. That is why, so many teeth whitening treatments are in the market and they do sell. But, before you start shelling out your pockets on them, try some home remedies first.

The first one is, definitely, Baking Soda. It is good for removing stains made by coffee, tea or other alcoholic beverages. Wet your toothbrush a little and dip it in a pot full of baking soda (keep it by your wash basin) and brush with it. Do not brush for more than 1-2 minutes. And, leave it on for 5 minutes. Do not rinse. Finish your other works while you wait. Now, apply your regular toothpaste on the unwashed toothbrush (which had been dipped in Baking Soda) and brush your teeth no more than 2 minutes. Rinse your mouth well. Follow this routine 2 times a week. Do not use Baking Soda on your teeth too often because it is mildly abrasive and is not good for the enamel on your teeth if used frequently.

An effective teeth whitening toothpaste: Mixing 3 teaspoons of baking soda mixed with a teaspoon of table salt makes a very effective whitening paste for your teeth. Store the mixture in a jar and brush your teeth and gums twice a week rinsing thoroughly afterwards.

Many people say that you should mix Baking Soda with Hydrogen Peroxide solution and use this toothpaste to clean your teeth. The mixture is definitely very effective and Hydrogen Peroxide is an ingredient in many teeth whiteners, but, it dries your mouth. And, it is not even good for your teeth if used frequently. So, use baking soda alone and you will find some difference in the first usage itself. Well, do not expect your teeth to become sparkling white any time with this treatment. But, it does clean your teeth and gums nicely and keeps them in good shape. And, do not mix baking soda with water to make a paste as it sort of runs down more on your face and hands instead of sticking to your teeth.
And, if you do not like the taste of Baking Soda (kind of salty and bitter) or using it as a paste, then you can mix baking soda in water and make a mouth wash. Use it after every meal. It also helps in removing bad breath.
Second method which is not very advisable, but, can be tried for some special occasions is Strawberries. Yes, rub strawberries on your teeth and see the difference. The citric acid in the fruits cleanses your teeth and makes them white.
Same effect can be achieved by all citric acid rich foods. Lemon juice can be used as mouth wash sometimes as it removes bad breath. And, simultaneously, helps in cleansing your teeth. But, the acid is highly corrosive on the enamel and makes your teeth very sensitive so make sure you do not use it more than once a month.
