How to whiten your teeth using home remedies

Hello everyone,

Do you want to have naturally shiny, white teeth but don't want to spend hundreds of dollars for just a few teeth whitening sessions? Well, here on AdviceReflection I'll be showing you exactly how to get beautiful, white, and shiny teeth in a few minutes using only the stuff you have at home!

What to do:

1 - Use Baking Soda and Hydrogen Peroxide (You can use Salt instead of hydrogen peroxide too)

  1. Take a small bowl and mix 2 teaspoons of baking soda and 2 teaspoons of hydrogen peroxide. Then stir until it's the same consistency of natural toothpaste.
  2. Apply the whitener on your toothbrush and brush your teeth the same way you would when you use toothpaste (Brush your teeth gently).
  3. Keep the whitener on your teeth for maximum 2 - 3 minutes and then rinse your teeth using water or cranberry juice without swallowing. Cranberry juice is antibacterial and at the same time helps you get rid of the taste. If you don't have cranberry juice, simply use water instead.
  4. Your teeth will immediately appear whiter and shinier.
WARNING: Don't use this way if you have cavities or any gum diseases. Also, don't use this whitener more than once a week since it can cause tissue damage if used too often.

2 - Use strawberries

Strawberries contain malic acid which removes discolourations of tooth's top coat, so you can either:
  1. Cut a strawberry in half and rub the inner side of it on your teeth. Then simply rinse your teeth with water.
  2. To make this more effective, mash 1 strawberry with half a teaspoon of baking soda. Mix the mixture and apply it on your teeth, keeping it on for about 5 minutes.
WARNING: Again, use this way only once a while since you don't want your top coat to break down completely! Don't use the 2nd way (The one with baking soda) if you have cavities or any gum diseases either.

3 - Eat crunchy food
Eat foods such as apples, carrots, celery, pears, etc... since they can naturally whiten your teeth due to the acid they contain. The crunchier the food, the higher the ability to clean your teeth and whiten them. Remember that you should eat the fruit/vegetable as a whole fruit for it to give you the white effect.

4 - Drink beverages through a straw

It's best to drink beverages through a straw in order to avoid any major contact with your teeth since most drinks make your teeth yellow and make them appear dirty.

5 - Use Lemon, baking soda and water

  1. Squeeze some lemon juice from a lemon in 1 cup
  2. Add baking soda in another cup
  3. Add a little water to the lemon juice cup
  4. Pour the Lemon juice with water into the baking soda cup
  5. A chemical reaction will happen and it will fuzz
  6. Gurgle the fizz and move it through your mouth for less than a minute
  7. Spit out the rest of the mixture and rinse your mouth with normal water or cranberry juice
WARNING: Don't use this more than once in 2 weeks since the acidity may again break down the tooth enamel if used too often. Don't use this way if you have cavities or any gum diseases.

6 - Don't drink drinks that make your teeth yellow and don't smoke

Avoid smoking and drinking coffee, alcohol, tea, soda, or red wine.

7 - Brush your teeth daily

Make sure you brush your teeth every day when you wake up and before you go to bed with a teeth whitening toothpaste. DO NOT brush your teeth IMMEDIATELY after you eat because this way you are removing the enzymes in your mouth which actually help your teeth. Instead, brushing your teeth about 10-15 minutes after eating will be better and more convenient.

So, I'm back at the end of my post. Please comment and rate my article and please vote on my poll, I'd be very grateful for everything! :)

  4. Hey! One of my buddy she finds time in preparing these mixtures for teeth whitening and there has been a great change in her teeth color. But I’m a working woman, I seldom get time to prepare these mixtures and I am very lazy to practice them regularly. I’m seriously in need of an instant teeth whitener. Moreover I've heard of some custom made trays, a teeth whitening product , which is a tray with the same hydrogen peroxide solution. I find that more comfortable, because you don’t have to spend time in preparing anything and just put them at night.

  5. I've been trying most of these tips but my teeth needs to be whitened every 8 months or so. I feared unusual enamel erosion and visited Dr. Stephen Phelan, smile makeover specialist, Toronto. He told me that it is a normal thing, but also consulted me that it is better to avoid sodas and soft-drinks.
    Dr. Stephen Phelan,
