FIVE TIPS ON HOW TO GET WHITER, HEALTHIER TEETH AT HOME FROM DR. KEVIN SANDS
1. STRAWBERRIES – Strawberries contain natural teeth whitening agents. Slice a strawberry and rub it directly on your teeth. It is very important to brush with toothpaste immediately after as strawberries also contain sugar and acids.
2. BAKING SODA – Baking soda should be used alone on a damp toothbrush or mixed with toothpaste to neutralize the salty taste.
3. XYLITOL SUGARLESS GUM
- Chewing sugarless gum immediately after eating or drinking stain causing foods or beverages such as dark berries, red wine, and/or coffee can help keep stains at bay by promoting saliva flow before stains have a chance to set. An added benefit is that xylitol has been shown to help prevent decay.
4. HOMEMADE TOOTHPASTE – Mix baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, salt and toothpaste for an inexpensive whitening toothpaste.
